Comments Off on The Twelve Slays of Xmas: The Fourth Slay

Season’s Grievings from your friends here at The Lost Highway. 2016 has been a difficult year. We lost Professor Snape, Admiral Ackbar, and even Alf. We watched as the United States of Earth was divided down the middle in a vicious election which still threatens to end in a nasty divorce. There were devastating natural disasters and Russians hacking. It’s been a real bummer.

And now to compound things it’s the holiday season, the worst wonderful time of the year. “While everybody else is opening up their presents, (others are) opening up their wrists” because “the suicide rate is always the highest around the holidays.” (Kate Beringer, Gremlins). In light of this year’s events, and the weight of the holiday season, what’s a mutant to do?

This Xmas we decided to put together a little gift to answer that question, a list of advice gleaned from the reel world of b-movies. We watched twelve Xmas themed movies and learned twelve valuable lessons to help navigate life.

The Lost Highway proudly presents: The Twelve Slays of Xmas.

The Fourth Slay of Xmas: Elves

Never take Grandpa’s old German books. Nothing good can ever come from old German books. We all know the ANY story with old German stuff necessarily involves Nazis. Duh! Things get worse when you’re a young teenage girl of the blond hair, blue eye, master race variety (as are most ingenue in horror films). Take Kirsten, this is exactly the path she takes and ends up forming the idiotic cult Sisters of Anti-Xmas. She and her two friends pray to the virgin of Anti-Xmas in a woodland ritual which includes complaining about it being cold, and dirty, and ugh, yuck!

In the end her friends all die, as does her family, and she’s left with Dan “Grizzly Adams” Haggerty. Books, especially old German ones, are bad. Burn ‘em!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for The Fifth Slay of Xmas: To All a Goodnight

The Third Slay of Xmas: Feeders 2: Slay Bells

One Xmas you might get a video camera from Santa. Maybe you hate the world and everyone in it. Maybe you’re tempted to make a movie, a sequel to your first flop film. Don’t do it. Please. For the love of Christ, don’t do it. The Hammond organ you use for the soundtrack will drown out everything else in the movie. The video effects your Atari 1040STE is capable of creating are only slightly better than crayon drawings by a person suffering a Grand Mal seizure. Most damning, the alien invaders will be attacking Wellsboro, Pennsylvania and no one cares about Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.

Get some shots of the family. Perhaps make a sex tape. Mostly just let it collect dust in the closet. The world will thank you for keeping it to yourself.

The Second Slay of Xmas: Silent Night, Deadly Night 2

Ricky, Billy’s (Silent Night, Deadly Night) little brother, escapes prison and goes on a killing spree thanks to an overconfident psychologist, Dr. Bloom. Bloom’s hubris has him believe he can interview a vicious serial murderer alone. Wrong! Never go it alone. Ever.

No matter how maximum the security, security is never adequate to stop a determined serial killer, especially one who comes from a family of psycho killers. So for the love of God keep the guard in the interview chamber with you, and if possible, have the guard armed with the weapon trained on Ricky (or whomever) the whole time!

The First Slay of Xmas: Silent Night, Deadly Night

Billy became a serial killer because of Santa Claus. That’s right, good old Saint Nick drove Billy bug nut crazy. Well, sort of. Really it was Billy’s family. Had the family not taken a trip to the nut house to visit Grandpa life would have played out differently.

It is believed that holidays are about spending quality time with family. This is a recipe for tragedy. Don’t do it. Family is horrible. Why subject yourself to that nightmare? Stay at home, safe and sound in your pjs, snacking on peppermint sticks and watching the late, late, late movie!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for The Second Slay of Xmas: Silent Night, Deadly Night 2.

Comments Off on Instruments of Evil

instruments

“Created in the ancient mists of time by the Viking god Loki, four musical demons have left carnage and horror in their wake as they’ve traveled through the centuries, using the vibrations of music as a conduit across time and space. Now, as the harmonic horrors attempt to reunite and bring about the end of the world, can a cop, a hooker, and a warrior from the past defeat these evil spirits before the music stops … forever? A combination of paean and parody, the music-filled EYECATCHER Video production, “Instruments of Evil”, pays homage to the low-budget exploitation (or “grindhouse”) films of the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, while also poking fun at their notorious excesses and absurdities. Fans of low-budget, B-movie madness will find enjoyment here, but be warned: not only tunes get stuck in your head!”
