"SOME OF YOU ARE GONNA END UP PUKING": (OR I WANT TO BE A "SLASHER MOVIE CRITIC")

Here's an amazing clip in which TV's Morton Downey Jr. puts horror movies on trial. Anyone heard of John Anastasio outside of this clip?

What? Some people object to Last House on the Left? :-)

What's weird about this clip-- okay, there are a lot of weird things-- is that the movie in question, LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, is defensible on all sorts of high-falutin' grounds. After all, it's inspired by Ingmar Bergman's THE VIRGIN SPRING. But that Gore magazine guy doesn't seem to know his own genre behind the special effects, which really aren't much of a factor in LHOTL.

Ah, Morton Downey, Jr. May you "zip it" in peace.

The sunglasses don't help his case.
