Double Feature Saturday! Creature (1985) and The Video Dead (1987)

October Challenge Day 10:

Back in 2003-2004, I would spend my Saturday afternoons watching Seattle's UPN 11's Movies That Bite. They were some of the worst horror movies ever made and the hosts (along side famous guests) paired the show with food and beverage recipes.

Now you know where I got the idea for this blog!

I loved this show so much that my neighborhood pub down the street started showing, on Saturday afternoons, the worst horror movies ever made. Both so I would go there instead [wink and a smile] AND because the TV show was coming to a close [sad face].

Despite various obstacles and rising beer prices, over ten years later I'm STILL watching horrible horror movies on Saturday afternoons!

Today's picks have been the uncreativly named horrible alien creature feature: Creature and the complete acting/film/editing zombie disaster: The Video Dead.

These are some really horrible movies, folks. Horribly Entertaining!

Creature takes you into deep space, where awful 80's clothes and hair styles reign proud and a television crew is looking for their next big story! You read that right... Unfortunately for them, the price of success is in the form of a blood-hungry ancient alien. This feature is different - it's not exactly like Alien! It's just like The Thing! Sure sure, it looks like Mother Alien, but this one takes over the body it kills just so it can get to more bodies, undetected...

This film isn't all bad though. There are some surprisingly gory moments and the creature is pretty unnerving (up until the end). Although it has it's gory moments - the gore is campy and so over-the-top it's hilarious. Packed with groan-worthy one liners, cheep sets and costumes, and a predicable cast, this is a must see for a good hearty laugh.

Absolutely a great film for a group of fun-lovers looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon and fun for every type of horror (or non-horror) lover, Creature is mostly certainly going to entertain. Pairs with dehydrated foods.

The Video Dead takes you to suburbia, where a happy-go-lucky brother and sister move into their new home. Then walks in (from the TV set) the walking dead! Folks, three second into this one and you'll be on the floor laughing. The dialogue....the's just .... SO BAD.

I'm serious, folks. This movie is so bad - So Bad - I can't even right now. I. Can't. Even. Just check out some of the quotes...

This movie is full of zombies that strangle you and then covet your stuff, such as your robe, your glasses, and your wigs. Then they'll laugh about it. If given the chance, they'll chase you with a chainsaw too. 

I don't even know what to make of this.

This is such a horrible movie - it would be a stretch to call it so bad it's good. It is entertaining though! Terribly, horribly entertaining. So much so it hurts.

Another film for the fun-loving group! Pairs with a big ass can of Dinty Moore soup. Prepare for comedy. Painful comedy.

I saw Creature of my on Horror Sci-Fi Fantasy Re-TV Roku channel. I saw The Video Dead on my Cultorama Roku channel. Use the links under Find It. Watch It. on Horror Habit's side bar to locate where else you can find these horrible horror flicks.
