  • Wild Beasts

    Wild Beasts

    ★★½

    Braun: "Is she out of her mind?"
    Rupert: "No, she's not crazy! She's being chased by a cheetah!"

    This is really the only line of dialogue I can clearly remember from Wild Beasts. This one and the line where the dispatcher asks the patrolman if he knows what elephants looks like. Wild Beasts has a promising premise, with zoo animals going bonkers after drinking water that has been contaminated with PCP, going on a rampage and just fucking shit up…

  • Angel

    Angel

    ★★★★

    Siskel: "Angel is trash."
    Ebert: "No it isn't!"

    The Slumber Party Massacre

    ★★★★

    Trish: "What I don't see is what she sees in John Minor."
    Kim: "Maybe what we don't see."
    Trish: "It's not how big it is, remember?"
    All together: "It's what's in it that counts!"

    Yeah? Well, I'll have you know that it's nothing but veins and a corpus spongiosum. My brain is up here, ladies!

    The Slumber Party Massacre is the prototypical 80s slasher. Plenty of nude girls, dumb guys, and a one-note crazed killer with no motivation other than…
