There is nothing that makes me happier than a good old-fashioned slasher flick. The onslaught (see what I did there?) of hack-n-slash horror movies in the '80s made this then 10-yr-old boy the fan he is today. When the VHS rental boom happened and I was finally into my teen years, I would comb the entire store for these movies with covers featuring a killer holding a knife or chainsaw or maybe even an axe. Yeah, sometimes these gems would be thrown in with the Thrillers (DePalma's films were notoriously here), Dramas and even Action (Maniac Cop, anyone?) but they couldn't escape me! The only way I missed one is if it was always checked out which seemed to be the case with Rick Roessler's Pig Farm Massacre aka Slaughterhouse.

Hold On To Your Wieners, Here Comes SPACE BABES FROM OUTER SPACE!

Up to this point Scott Schirmer and Brian K. Williams from Bandit Motion Pictures have not made a comedy, per se. But knowing Brian especially, it was only a matter of time and you just knew that when that movie was made, it was going to be a sex comedy with tons of tits and ass. Enter the redundantly (and hilariously) entitled Space Babes from Outer Space!
