In a bowling alley from hell…there’s only one way to score!
There are no freshmen in the college of love, and they’re about to graduate to madcap mayhem when a sorority prank goes crazy. Out to steal a trophy from a local bowling alley, the kids accidentally unleash the imp — a sadistic little spirit with a diabolical sense of humor. He creates demons and loves sexy women. He’s the original party animal, inviting you to come along and die laughing — just like everybody else.
The Sorority Babes won’t live through initiation, but don’t blame that cute little killer. He’s evil by nature and funny as hell. And even if you can take a joke, it kills you.
Hollywood Horror House
To wrap up this huge month, Full Moon will release Hollywood Horror House, one of a 20 part series coming to FullMoonDirect.com with an amazing intro by film historian David DelValle!
By 1970, the once golden age of Hollywood glamour and stardom was a tragic last hurrah represented by the decayed and deteriorated Hollywood Sign. In HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE, we’ll go below the sign, to a decaying hilltop mansion of a once great star, played by a once great star, Miriam Hopkins. The fabled Ms. Hopkins, toast of the town back in the thirties iwth box office hits like Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde and Becky Sharpe, was an A-list actress and Oscar nominee.
Another Oscar winner (Best Supporting Actress 1936) Gale Sondergaard plays Miss Hopkins’ loyal friend and housekeeper, who tries to save her friend from the handsome stranger, played by son of acting legend John Garfield. He may be the culprit littering the land around the Hollywood sign with hacked up body parts.
This hellish time capsule showcasing late 60s/early 70s Hollywood, remains an early example of the slasher films which would follow in just a few years. See Miriam Hopkins trapped in a madhouse of hacked up blood-splattered bodies, tripped out drug sequences, murder by electric knives and a Hollywood Christmas Parade with a drunk out of control movie star as its Grand Marshall.
HOLLYWOOD HORROR HOUSE is the last death rattle of the Horror Hag craze that began with Better Davis feeding dead rats to Joan Crawford in Whatever Happened To Baby Jane. Just as Bette sang “I’ve written a letter to daddy’ in that film, listen to Miriam sing the hell out of “Taking a chance on love.”
Witness that demented slice of cinema best described as a motel six version of PSYCHO…you have been warned!
“Here’s a deliriously entertaining mixture of SUNSET BOULEVARD and Herschell Gordon Lewis Movies, not to be missed.” — The Bloody Pit of Horror.
Full Moon Features is the home of many horror classics I’m sure that have a special place on your own personal horror wall.
