Have you seen Don’t Go In The House, fiends? I missed this one. That’s what I’m watching while I pull together this week’s Week In Horror. Set in New Jersey, released in 1979, one year after Halloween and one year before Friday the 13th. There are shades of Psycho and a shot that is very reminiscent of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It’s supposedly this nasty, mean spirited film that was banned as a Video Nasty in the UK and got 3 minutes of violence trimmed and the first kill was supposed to be very controversial. But I ask you, fiends, could Amazon have a cut version streaming? Apparently yes, because the full first kill is available on Youtube and it is much longer and nastier. So the violence is super tame and off camera, in this version. Not that it doesn’t have some very effective and creepy moments. Not bad so far, to be honest, just not what was advertised and so I can’t in good conscience recommend it. Try to find an uncut DVD.
But what’s new, you ask? Well it’s a drag…(I’m not sorry) The Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies London is tackling a fascinating topic.
at The Horse Hospital September 13th!
