BLOOD DINER (1987)
"armed with a meat-cleaver in one hand and his genitals in the other..."
As a general rule I don't like a majority of the silly 80's horror movies that they spewed out because they're mostly just really fucking stupid and seem to have been made for retards which would describe pretty accurately people who love that horrible decade. There are a handful of exceptions to this rule. This movie is one of them. Originally shot as a sequel to the legendary HG Lewis' BLOOD FEAST making this movie a serious piece of cinema would have been really dumb and unnecessary. This movie is also pretty similar to the early works of Troma studios in that things happen in a fairly chaotic manner. You get naked aerobics, pro wrestling nazis, zombies, a talking brain in a jar, lots of cool 50's tunes and tons of ridiculous over-the-top gore. You also get a lot of stupid joke scenes which would probably turn off many hardcore horror fans but I still dig it enough to have re-watched this movie a bunch of times over the years and always find myself entertained enough to go back again and again. It's also way better than the official sequel to BLOOD FEAST that Mr. Lewis came out with a few years back.
