CONTEST: Win A Free Copy of Wal-Mart's 8 Movie Horror Pack


Yesterday I posted about the 8 Movie Horror Collection currently hiding in the $5 Bins at most Wal-Marts right now. It seems that these are becoming harder and harder to come across as the word has been spreading across facebook. But in my morning travels I was able to spot an extra copy and figured I would save you the trip of having to actually go to Wal-mart yourself or trying to be the winning bidder on Ebay! As you can see this collection has the following movies "Waxwork", "976-Evil 2", "Ghoulies 3", "The Unholy", "C.H.U.D. 2", "Chopping Mall", "Slaughter High", and "Class of 1999" . . . 

To win the contest all you have to do is post below in the comments what is your favorite movie from this set and why.
It's that easy! Please only post below here on the blog to win and not on the "SMF FaceBook Page" or via email. Enter Only Once and do so before Midnight April 15th . . . When the deadline is reached I am going to put all the names entered into a bag and pick one at random. The winner will be announced later that day. Best of luck to all that enter!

  1. Is it tacky to take an excerpt from a review I did for Waxwork? Doin' it anyway!

    "Waxwork has a touch of everything for practically any horror enthusiast to enjoy. Plus, it has the camp feel of the customary 80's horror film, with awful hair and fashion to balance it all out adequately. If you are a fan of werewolves, Waxwork has it. If you like the bloodsucking thrill of vampires, there are plenty of fangs to go around. If ancient tales of the mummy get you going, then look no more. Zombies, Jack the Ripper, Phantom of the Opera, ooh la la! Waxwork carries references to all of the favorites from beginning to end. And to top all of that off, the movie has a decent flow of gore, especially in its unrated format."

    I love this shit out of this film, and dammit I really need CHUD II in my life!

  2. I'd have to go with Ghoulies 3, the only thing better than Ghoulies is Ghoulies plus Animal House.

  3. I cannot help loving CHUD II. Big fan of the first film and just love the ridiculous sequel despite all its flaws. The awful humor still gets me every time.

  4. I agree with Robocop. "Waxwork" is my personal favorite out of the lot. It has something for every horror fan! The film sort of pays tribute to a variety of classic horror films, and as a result, it has alot going on in the reference department. But manages not to give you the feeling that the film is "too busy" with what all is happening in the movie. And for that, in and of itself, is no easy task. And is the result of great writing! And for this reason, it's my personal favorite from the group!

  5. "Chopping Mall", for completely throwing me off. The movie is about killer robots.. Awesome.

  6. I like them all but I have to say my favorite is Waxwork. It is one of the classics from the 80's. Waxwork Superpurbly combines both horror/comedy genres in one great masterpiece & besides it stars Zack Galligan. (bye bye Billy)

  7. Tough choice, but I'll go with "Chopping Mall". Nothing beats a cheesy '80s flick with malfunctioning killer security robots that shoot laser beams and kill valley girls inside a shopping mall. And it gets bonus points for the Dick Miller (as Walter Paisley!) cameo.

  8. Ghoulies 3 because they drink beer, look at naked girls and fuck shit up. It is like a biopic about me with better looking dudes. Ragnar is a dick. I do love every movie on this set except 976 Evil 2 though.

  9. Chopping Mall - it's inventive, highly entertaining, full of goofy characters, surprisingly tense and atmospheric, but also wonderfully silly and superbly funny. The robots look awesome and the head-exploding-scene is just bad-ass! I loooove Chopping Mall! :)

  10. That is such a tough call. Waxwork was a huge favorite of mine as a kid. Marquee DeSade was one of the reasons I grew out my hair. But I think I'll go with Chud II just for the Bud the Chud song.

    I think Ghoulies III deserves a mention too!

  11. i would have to say chopping mall how can you not love a film with killer robots in a mall

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love Chopping Mall, Waxwork, and The Unholy, but Class of 1999 has to take it for me. It used to come on during the Saturday afternoon movie block on my local cable channel when I was young, and it was an early favorite.

  13. My favorite one on this DVD has to be 976-EVIL II. Any film that can flawlessly incorporate Night of the Living Dead into a death scene gets a "Thumbs Up" in my book.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Bud the C.H.U.D. because not only does it have nothing to do with the also excellent C.H.U.D. it supposedly is based on a rejected Return of the Living Dead 2 script.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm a sucker for holiday horror, and seeing as today is April fools day and I'm watching it as I write this, I gotta go with Slaughter High. Solid ending, hot female lead, lawnmower death scene... Marty Rantzen fucks!

    ReplyDelete
  16. There are a lot of fun movies on this list, but I have to give props to Waxwork. I don't think it gets enough credit as an 80s classic.

    ReplyDelete
  17. All the flicks in this set are awesome! I have childhood memories of every one of them! My absolute fave from this set is Waxwork. I used to watch this over and over!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ghoulies 3. The Ghoulies go to college and drink themselves to the bottom of a pyramid of beer cans... what's not to love?

    ReplyDelete
  19. 976-evil, the scene where the guns and stuff in the house attack the dude is awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  20. C.H.U.D. II! The scene where Bud is watching the chick in her living room doing the aerobic workout almost made me piss myself.

  21. Chopping Mall!

    The pun name is part of it, but also, it's just a ton of fun.

  22. I'm gonna have to go with Chopping Mall, I kinda have a thing for killer robots.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'll go with Chopping Mall. I haven't seen it in years but I still remember that "WTF did I just watch" feeling when I saw it the first time. It was different from other slashers but still had a lot of the same elements. You kind of felt like you were watching an evolution of the genre. And yet it was also just great fun!

  24. I am ashamed to say that until this year I hadn't seen most of these 80's gems. Waxwork was my favorite. I loved everything about it. From the idiot teens to the campy plot. Best in the set for sure. #2 is c..h.u.d 2. I wanted a c..h.u.d so bad as a Kid.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have a soft spot for Slaughter High. The only film where you find yourself rooting for the killer.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm going with Ghoulies III, because you just cannot go wrong with having Kevin McCarthy. As a plus, it's Matthew Lillard's first movie, and even Jason Scott Lee makes an appearance. This movie adamantly proves that you can make a worse movie than Ghoulies II.

  27. Waxwork. Perfect blend of pretty much all the classic horror scenarios and monsters, with an 80's twist, starring the kid from Gremlins and Valley Girl herself. I'll always have a crush on her in this and Sundown. Although I love the Bud The Chud song.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My favorite movie in the set is easily Chopping Mall, because of how silly of an idea the film is.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite film on this set is definitely 'Waxwork'. Vampires, a mummy, zombies, Marquis de Sade, and a werewolf are just some of the creepy cast of wax exhibits come to life... what's not to love? It's not only my favorite movie on this particular set, it's one of my favorite films of all time!

  30. Chopping Mall. It screams 80's and B movie. The movie has a nice cast of familiar faces with Kelli Maroney, Barbara Crampton, Dick Miller and Mary Woronov. It has everything a Wynorski film would have. Namely, creative (and cheesy) kills and girls without much clothing. Thankfully, they dropped the original "Killbots" title.

  31. 976 Evil 2. Why? Where else do you have It's A Wonderful Life meets Night Of The Living Dead? I great sequel to an awesome guilty pleasure movie!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Probably Waxwork.I remember trying to watch it as a child with my brother, cousin, and my mother. All three of us kids were terrified and had to leave the room. We kept trying to peek around the corner and watch, but were too scared. Eventually, years later, I watched it again and had to laugh at myself for being so frightened by such a campy, fun film.

  33. CHUD 2: Bud the CHUD. was either the first, or one of the first, horror films I ever saw at the tender age of six. It was on a VHS tape with Return of the Living Dead Part II. Believe it or not, both films actually scared me - I remember closing my eyes when Rich Hall is killed by Clive "the Emperor from Empire Strikes Back" Revell. I also remember deciding when I saw Tricia Leigh Fisher (sister of Joely and half-sister of Carrie, the Star Wars connection continues!) that I liked petite women, especially in swimsuits.
    While it's not even the best film in this set, I still enjoy it today because of it's awesome theme song (look on youtube for a cool acoustic cover of it!), hilarious scenery chewing from Robert Vaughn and surprisingly spectacular ending!

  34. SLAUGHTER HIGH! Why you ask? Well my fellow gorehounds, for the appetizer we can start with the fact that its one of the most underrated slasher films of the 80's next to of course the Burning & Silent Night, Deadly Night and such. The main character is the typical nerd think Revenge of the Nerds meets Toxic Avenger meets Friday the 13th. Looking for a cult/slasher/revenge movie? Horrible acting? Check! Terrible set designs? Check! Late 20's actors posing as 18 year olds? Check! Buckets of cheap, bright red blood and gore? Check! Random acts of nudity? Check! Check! Double check! 'Yup! This movie has it all! Stomach's exploding & guts spilling everywhere, janitor impalings, a girl boiled alive in a tub of scalding hot water. Slaughter High truly takes the conventional killings to the next level. Even the bizarre Jester mask gives off an erie feeling that will send piranhas down your spine. And lets not forget about the box of Cheez-its that is the main intro "April Fools Day" which is one of my favorite slasher movie themes. The deadly ending has a sweet twist that does a complete 360 on the viewer. To rip the flesh apart, in conclusion...if your looking to eyeball a Cult Slasher movie that is full of buckets of blood and fun go with SLAUGHTER HIGH!!!!
