June: When Animals Attack…with a Vengeance!

It’s time for the third installment of “When Animals Attack” month at potluck! (Check out previous posts here and here if you want to see what we’ve already watched.) The enemies this time: bees, cockroaches, worms, and slugs.

June 6: The Swarm (1978). An entomologist and his crack team of scientists attempt to intervene when swarms of voracious killer bees begin attacking a number of cities in Texas. Probably the most embarrassing film of Michael Caine’s career.

June 13: Bug (1975). Killer mutant cockroaches that can start fires! Wait, what? This was legendary horror producer William Castle’s final movie.

June 20: Squirm (1976). A lightning storm creates giant killer worms in a small Southern town.

June 27: Slugs (1987). Something wicked is afoot in a small New York town, where the locals are being devoured by common garden slugs. Best nitroglycerin-related greenhouse accident ever.

May is for METAL!!!

Are you ready? I don’t know if you are. Hell, I don’t know if I am ready for a month of heavy-metal-themed horror movies. But don’t worry, we’re closing out the month with Wayne’s World to wash the bad taste away.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare (1987): When a heavy-metal band decides to record at a farmhouse, strange things start to happen. Featuring the most bizarre and unexpected twist ending ever. Written by and starring Jon Mikl Thor!

The Gate (1987): Two kids play a record by heavy-metal band SACRIFIX backwards to learn more about the demons coming out of a gate to hell in their backyard.

Trick or Treat (1986): After infamous heavy-metal singer Sammy Curr dies in a hotel fire, he comes back to life to kill everyone who’s ever mistreated Eddie, his biggest fan. YES. Features fantastic cameos by Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons and an awesome soundtrack!

Wayne’s World (1992): Alice Cooper? We’re not worthy!!
