When Animals Attack…Again!

Our “When Animals Attack” theme was probably the most fun one we’ve had to date. So once again we’re gonna thrill you with animals hell-bent on revenge against humanity.

18 FEET OF TOWERING FURY!! A classic “animals attack” flick.

June 21st: Alligator (1980)
“Beneath these manholes, a man-eater is waiting.” Alligators are living in the Chicago sewers.

June 28th: Deep Blue Sea
Pissed-off sharks and LL Cool Jay. What more do you need to know?

March: Killer Cars on the Loose

I’ve been excited about this theme for months. So here’s March:

March 1: Maximum Overdrive (1986) — Cars come alive and seek revenge. Based on a Steven King story.
March 8: The Car (1977) — A mysterious car terrorizes small town, and only James Brolin can fight back.
March 15: Killdozer! (1974) — Made for TV movie based on a Theodore Sturgeon short story. The one and only movie about a killer bulldozer.
March 22: Christine (1983) — Another Steven King-inspired masterpiece about a boy and his creepy relationship with his car.
March 29: Blood Car (2007) — Probably way too good for a potluck movie, but everyone should see it. Awesome satire-horror film about a vegan kindergarten teacher who invents a car that runs on human blood.
