    I'm going with Epitaph. I love that movie, there's just something crappalistic about it.

    The Last Slumber Party and Blood Lake are also terrible old favorites, and fun to watch and laugh with.

    I've heard amazing stuff about Blood Lake. I've been trying to track it down for ages!

    I'm pretty well versed in 80's SOV horror flicks so I thought I'd add a couple more titles to what "OTHER" on the list could signify...

    Shock Chamber (1985)
    Black Devil Doll From Hell (1984)
    Tales From The Quadead Zone (1987)
    Venus Flytrap (1988)
    Spine (1986)
    Phantom Brother (1988)

    Shock Chamber (aka-Greedy Terror) would be my fave. Victims!, Terror At Tenkiller and The Last Slumber Party all look like filmstock films though. Last Slumber Party may have been video transfered to film, but I'm fairly sure Victims! was originally shot 16mm. Anyone know for sure?

    BLOOD CULT. I think it was also the first DTV horror film.

    :lol: Yes, amazingly bad! But I still find it enjoyable 80's trash. I don't think it's ever hit DVD in any region. I own the old VHS tape. I could be wrong, but I think VCI now holds the rights...as they've released many of the other United Home Video releases.

    I don't see Killing Spree listed there.

    I'm voting for Killing Spree.

    I was just going to go to the trouble to ready a list like this for the official poll, but Helly is one smarter than I. I'll move this to the Site Polls page to make this official. Vote away!

    i voted for Redneck Zombies. The scene where the guy is tripping on acid and has to do an impromptu autopsy on a zombie is still hysterical!

    Great one and a favorite, which I totally forgot about it. It was actually shot on film however...so maybe that excludes it. :evil:

    Yes, Killing Spree was definitely shot in 16mm. Tim Ritter directed it and I worked on a couple of his later films that were shot on video.

    I'm afraid to vote! BOARDING HOUSE is the only one I know. I got to see that trailer every time I used to watch my VHS of Alien Contamination.
    I just cannot picture that at theaters! :)
