"Official? Who do you think you are? The only thing official you've ever done is lick stamps! Now get off my place!" That should get rid of Otis P. Hazelrigg, right? Join your faithful Grue-Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr -  as they watch a misguided band of vigilantes get their just deserts in Frank De Felitta’s Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981).

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 183 – Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)

In a small Southern town, a wrongfully killed man exacts revenge from beyond the grave on those who murdered him.

IMDb

 

Jeff originally chose The Nest (1987) for this episode but it was not to be. Instead, based on recommendations from several Grue-Believers, he opted for Dark Night of the Scarecrow, a Halloween TV movie directed by Frank De Felitta. Unfortunately, Crystal did not get the message about the movie switch because Jeff neglected to correct the Grue-Crew’s calendar. Doh! Even so, she contributes with questions about Dark Night of the Scarecrow’s story and comments on the excellent cast in this film.

The music is perfect, according to Jeff, and though there isn’t much for onscreen gore, the implied violence in Dark Night of the Scarecrow is chilling. In fact, he watched the film three times and liked it better each time. Bill instantly got into it, calling it his favorite horror-related TV-movie (after The Nightstalker (1972), of course), and he crows about the beautiful print resulting from the restoration for the Blu-ray edition. Dark Night of the Scarecrow is a happy surprise for Bill and he highly recommends it. The only one of the Grue-Crew who saw Dark Night of the Scarecrow when it first ran on TV is Chad and he compares it to an extended episode of Tales from the Crypt (1989-1996). This time around, he reveled in the darker undertones he didn’t pick up as a kid and loves the ambiguous conclusion. Chad, Bill, and Jeff all loved the direct cut from the woodchipper to Large Marge (actually Alice Nunn as Mrs. Bunch) dropping a large dollop of red jam onto a white plate.

Your Decades of Horror 1970s Grue-Crew highly recommends Dark Night of the Scarecrow. The film is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime and  on physical media as a Blu-ray from VCI Video.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Bill will be Lucio Fulci’s The Black Cat (1981).  You won’t want to miss that one!

“Oh man, you're weird.” That ain’t the half of it! Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr, along with guest host Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff from the Classic Era - as they check out Gregory Peck, Laurence Olivier, James Mason, and Lilli Palmer in The Boys from Brazil (1978).

A Nazi hunter in Paraguay discovers a sinister and bizarre plot to rekindle the Third Reich.

IMDb

 

The Boys from Brazil is Bill’s pick, but alas, busy summer schedules created conflicts that could not be resolved. Luckily, Daphne was able to join the 1970s Grue-Crew on short notice. However, she was disappointed in The Boys from Brazil, especially with its amazing cast and being based on an Ira Levin novel. Chad didn’t enjoy the film either, calling it boring. He just couldn’t believe the batshit-crazy ending and refers to The Boys from Brazil as an oddity. On the other hand, Jeff loves the film. Being an Ira Levin fan, and having recently seen Gregory Peck in The Omen (1976) and Laurence Olivier as a Nazi doctor in Marathon Man (1976), Jeff thinks he was predisposed to like The Boys from Brazil. Doc splits the difference by admitting he enjoyed the movie even though he didn’t like it. To be clear, Doc enjoyed The Boys from Brazil for the acting and the cast of great character actors, not for the story and the weird ending. He will probably watch it over and over again just for the cast and even though it “zoinks,” he somehow had fun with it.

The Boys from Brazil is currently available on a variety of streaming services and on a Blu-ray disk from Timeless Media.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode in their very flexible schedule will be Bloodsucking Freaks (1976), chosen by Chad! Be sure to join us for that one.

"Signs of a pending eruption? hmm. Forbid access around the crater? Understood. In effect until further notice? I'll send out a bulletin right away."  Sounds like something serious is going down. Join this episode’s Grue-Crew - Whitney Collazo, Chad Hunt, Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff, Joseph Perry, and Jeff Mohr - as they go old school a trip to Toho’s’s Rodan (1956).

A large mining accident sets loose prehistoric insects and giant pterosaurs on Japan.

IMDb

 

Rodan is Joseph’s pick and is one of his favorites among the classic kaiju movies. As opposed to later kaiju fare, Joseph likes the more serious nature of this film and appreciates the titular creature’s origin story. Daphne enjoys her first viewing of the Japanese version of Rodan and plentiful miniature work in the film. Whitney likes the color palette used in Rodan and enjoys all the military action. Rodan’s vapor trail tripped Jeff’s trigger and he was all about the boom-boom. He also fails miserably in his efforts to pronounce Rodan correctly. The Classic Era Grue-Crew also delves into the differences between the Japanese and the U.S. versions of Rodan, the voice actors used for dubbing, and the rigors of suit acting.

If you haven’t seen this kaiju gem in a while, now is a great time to check it out again. At the time of this writing, Rodan is available to stream on The Criterion Channel and HBOmax.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. For their next episode, Whitney has chosen The Hitch-Hiker (1953), a classic film noir about a psychotic, escaped convict on a killing spree while, you guessed it, hitch-hiking. Sound a lot like horror, doesn’t it?

"It all started during a campfire at North Sea Cottages, a special retreat for gifted children..."  “Special,” as in, “you may never come back?” Join your faithful Grue-Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr -  as they check out the lesser-known, low-budget slasher, Madman (1981).

A legendary psychopathic murderer stalks a summer camp.

IMDb

 

Madman is Chad’s pick even though he admits to not being much of a slasher fan. The character of Madman Marz and his backstory appealed to him, however, along with all the good killing going on. This time around, he also realized Galen Ross, the female lead, has a lead role in Dawn of the Dead (1978). Bill’s not much of a slasher fan either and fails to see the appeal of Madman, calling it a bit generic. Though they are similar in their basic plots, he much prefers The Burning (1981) over Madman. On the other hand, Jeff prefers Madman to The Burning. For him, the action Madman starts off more quickly and is more evenly paced. The music is the rub for Crystal, who labels it among the worst music she’s heard in movies, almost to the point of being infuriating. On the plus side, she loves the non-sex, hot tub sex scene, describing it as hilarious.

None of the Decades of Horror Grue-Crew call Madman a great or even a good movie, but it can be a fun movie, and Madman Marz is something else.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Jeff will be The Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981).  You won’t want to miss that one!

REVIEW: THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT (2021)

A chilling story of terror, murder, and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they'd ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.

“Dead? Not dead. Look at me. Look at me! I am the one who is dead. All safe and dead. All safe and dead.” You certainly wouldn’t have to worry about being killed if that’s what you mean by being safe. Join your faithful Grue Crew - Doc Rotten, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr, along with guest host Daphne Monary-Ernsdorff from the Classic Era - as they check out The Haunting of Julia (1977), starring Mia Farrow, Tom Conti, and Keir Dullea.

After her daughter's death, wealthy American homemaker Julia Lofting moves to London to restart her life. All seems well until she is haunted by the ghosts of other children while mourning for her own.

IMDb

 

The Haunting of Julia, aka Full Circle, is Jeff’s pick and he loves the gothic atmosphere and the surreal feel to the film. Bill identifies The Haunting of Julia as a slow burn, superficially reminiscent of Don’t Look Now (1973), with evidence of a cult following on the internet. Daphne got sucked into the “is-it-or-isn’t-it-supernatural” nature of the story, appreciates the dark place it goes, and loves Mia Farrow’s performance. Mrs. Fludd, the quirky seance conductor, is one of Chad’s favorite characters, and though he agrees The Haunting of Julia is a bit slow, he also thinks the last 15-20 minutes are well worth the wait. 

Though your Classic Era Grue-Crew is divided regarding some aspects of the film, they agree that Mia Farrow’s performance and the last act are the best parts of The Haunting of Julia, currently streaming VOD.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode in their very flexible schedule will be The Boys from Brazil (1978), chosen by Bill! Be sure to join us for that one.

Dr. Frankenstein dares to tamper with life and death by creating a human monster out of lifeless body parts.

IMDb

 

Michael, our guest host from the Classic Sci-Fi Movie Channel, PlayNow Media, and Found Footage Critic, admits he probably saw Frankenstein when he was far too young. Even the “?” in the opening credit for the monster gave him chills. Daphne credits Frankenstein with getting her into the details of costumes and even patterned her wedding dress as closely as possible after the wedding dress in the film. Guillermo del Toro’s quote on the “fragility and power” of Karloff’s performance resonates with Whitney and she is impressed with how the makeup is at once beautiful and creepy. Edward Van Sloan’s introduction to Frankenstein got Chad wound up as a child and he has come to consider James Whale as a visionary director, ahead of his time. There are so many aspects of Frankenstein that have affected us all, according to Joseph, but this time around, he focuses on the iconic laboratory set design and the wide range of emotions elicited by the film and its characters. Jeff can’t remember his first encounter with Frankenstein, claiming it seems as if we were born with an intrinsic knowledge of the Universal monsters, which Joseph then refers to as “schoolyard legends.”

You know you need to see Frankenstein again and again and again. It’s available in a variety of collections on Blu-ray and on a variety of streaming subscription services or as VOD.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. In the next episode, their 101st episode, they will discuss a movie chosen by Joseph, Toho’s Rodan (1956). Be sure to be there as the Classic Era Grue-Crew embarks on their second 100 episodes!

"Our interest lies in finding that damned book, and thwarting a vile beast of a man who shall not rest until God himself is thrown down, and all of creation becomes Satan's black hell-besmeared farting hole!" Okay, but only if it’s hell-besmeared. Join your faithful Grue-Crew - Crystal Cleveland, Chad Hunt, Bill Mulligan, and Jeff Mohr -  as they learn the ins and outs of life as a witch-hunter in Warlock (1989).

 A warlock flees from the 17th to the 20th century, with a witch-hunter in hot pursuit.

IMDb

 

Crystal likes Julian Sands almost as much as she likes a good fog machine, so it came as no surprise that her pick for this episode is Warlock. She also likes the different take that comes from featuring a warlock rather than a witch and still enjoys the film, despite the poor aging makeup effects on Lori Singer’s character. Bill points out that the weak aging effects are not the fault of the makeup effects artists and are the result of the actor’s choice. He also admits he expected a late 80s cheese-fest and his expectations are fulfilled by the cheesy visual special effects necessitated by the budget restrictions. Chad likes Warlock, especially Richard Grant’s and Julian Sands’ performances, but thinks it could be a lot better with a little more money. Jeff liked Warlock when he saw it back in the day and still does, but agrees with the rest of the Grue-Crew that the animated effects are a bit on the cheesy side.

Despite being dated, in particular in terms of animated effects, your Decades of Horror 1970s Grue-Crew is glad to have covered Warlock. Currently, Warlock is available VOD and on Blu-ray as part of the Warlock 1-3 Collection from  Lionsgate.

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Chad will be Madman (1981).  You won’t want to miss that one!
