Movies 3: The Couch Strikes Back

It’s October again! You know what that means? Movies! Woo hoo!! See what Amy & I have been watching, and have a gander at our impressions below! Don’t forget to check back, as we’ll be adding to it throughout the month!



The Mutilator a.k.a. Fall Break (1984)


A group of college kids vacation in a beach house owned by the lead actor’s killer father.  You can guess where it goes from there.  The acting is unbelievably awful.  The opening theme music scene is worth watching all by itself, though.  For a few minutes, I thought I was watching an 80s sitcom.  I had to watch it twice, just to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

Chris: Watch once

Amy: Watching Bates Motel in the other room




Mutant (1984)


The (in my mind) spiritual prequel to Nightmare at Noon, starring Wings Hauser and Mumblin’ Bo Hopkins.  Wings and his brother get stranded in a small Georgia town being overrun by toxic zombies.  Enter Hopkins, the American treasure.  It’s up to Wings, Bo, and  the bartender/school teacher Holly (Jody Medford) to survive the night.

Chris: Watch now

Amy: Watch



Tucker and Dale VS Evil (2010)


Good and campy, with very good performances by Tudyk and Labine.  I was expecting a more supernatural presence, but enjoyed it just the same.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch


DeepStar Six (1989)


Scientists inhabiting an underwater nuclear missile site unearth an ancient monster (whom you don’t see until over an hour into the 90ish minute movie)…

Chris: Skip

Amy: Skip


Dolls (1987)


A varied group of people get stranded in a doll maker’s creepy mansion overnight during a storm.  No big deal, right? Well, the dolls are alive.  And murderous.  Go now.

Chris: Watch

Amy: “Everybody should watch it once.”


Motel Hell (1980)


Goofy movie about a motel ran by a “farmers”…people farmers! Ha! Watch out for Cliff from Cheers.  The soundtrack is…killing me…I’m so sorry…

Chris: Watch

Amy: “Everybody should try to watch it once.”


Slumber Party Massacre (1982)

Pretty straight forward slasher fun. Decent atmosphere, shameless nudity, and an escaped maniac with a cordless drill amounts to some pretty good kills.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Undecided


Sleepaway Camp 2: Unhappy Campers (1988)

The second hatch’ted installment in the Sleepaway Camp series, and starring two sisters of famous people! Yep, you guessed it: Bruce Springsteen’s sister Pamela, and Renée Estevez (sister to Charlie Sheen and Emillio Estevez)…wait, you didn’t guess that?

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch



Sleepaway Camp 3: Teenage Wasteland (1989)

Springsteen amped up the kookiness and creativity in this sequel.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch



Halloween (2018)

Nailed it. It had the atmosphere, suspense, nods to the OGs, and great kills. Also, let’s not forget Jamie Lee Curtis.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch



The Nun (2018)

Creepy as shit. A good installment to the Conjuring franchise.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch



976-EVIL 2 (1991)

Amy hadn’t seen it. Had to be done. She wasn’t amused.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Skip



The Dead Pit (1989)

Dr. Giggles’s older brother, Dr. Zombies runs around experimenting on people in a mental institution.

Chris: Skip

Amy: Skip



Pumpkinhead (1988)

Still a classic. LH is a little over the top though.

Chris: Watch

Amy: Watch



Winchester (2018)

Not bad, but very slow in parts. The house was very cool, though. Patience required.

Chris: Skip

Amy: Skip



Scarecrows (1988)

No clue. I fell asleep 10 minutes in. Amy was in the other room watching The 100. I think I saw a scarecrow before I fell out…



Stay tuned for more flicks, Corner Folk. We’re always watching something.
