Halloween III is one of the strangest movies in any movie franchise. As I’ve mentioned before in a previous post, it’s a sequel to film that it has absolutely no relationship to. While it can be said that they tried to incorporate the Silver Shamrock company into the later films of the Halloween franchise, it’s pretty clear that beforehand they really didn’t have any intentions of keeping this film in the continuum of the world that gave birth to Michael Myers. In fact, the only appearance of Michael Myers in this film is a brief clip from the original Halloween of Mr. Myers walking down the stairs as a promo for a broadcast of the original Halloween movie. So while the original intent of this movie was supposed to be a telling of a “halloween story” after Myers death in Halloween II, this movie is really about Dr. Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) and the Silver Shamrock company.
Over the last 2 years at Internal Bleeding we have tackled a lot of strange movies, both with sick and twisted stories, and those with questionable moral values… or at least we thought! Deadgirl makes those movies look like the Disney Sunday Movie in comparison. To give away the plot of the story in the opening paragraph not only ruins the dark and disturbing premise of the film but also tests the moral fiber of this website for describing something that not everyone in this world is prepared to read. I’m sure you think that we are just over-reacting and hyping up the storyline too much, but trust us, it’s not for the faint of heart!
Living in Michigan all my life I’m extremely familiar with cold winters, tons of snow, and forests that go for what seems like hundreds of miles. It is just something you have to get used to while living here, and for the most part it can be very beautiful. I’m also a big fan of camping whether it be in a tent, trailer, or a cabin in what Michiganders call “Up North”, which basically means anywhere further North than you live. (clever huh?!?) The ironic part about “Up North” is you do it to get away, be by yourself, or hang with some close friends and drink. The more secluded the better. Unfortunately seclusion can also be your worst enemy, especially when a killer finds your cabin and starts offing you and your friends!
For this week’s Trailer Tuesday, we bring you the 1988 zombie film Flesheater!
What you see in this trailer is truly what you get, as it runs through most of the movie from start to finish. While it looks fairly cheesy and the acting is pretty bad, it’s actually a really fun zombie film. Check out our review of Zombie Nosh for more info on this underrated zombie classic. It’s definitely a great film to watch around Halloween. You’ll show up for the zombies and the totally awesome costume party, but you’ll stay for Night of the Living Dead’s original zombie Bill Hinzman!
