    While watching Freeway Maniac yesterday I noticed most of the male cast were beefy bodybuilder types. Kinda odd since there was no David DeCoteau involvement ;)
    Either way, it added to the unintentional hilarity which gave me an idea for this thread:

    A few I can think of are Home Sweet Home (1981), Killer Workout (1987) and Posed for Murder (1989). Anyone wants to add to the list?

    Are we just talking muscles/exercise here, or pure steroid rage? :evil:

    Either one is fine I guess.

    I just remembered another oddity from yesteryear: Lou Ferrigno playing a psycho killer in the slasher-esque "Matt Houston" episode Blood Ties (1984).

    Sledgehammer from 1983, and for something newer that looks like a possible candidate, Adam Chaplin.

    While I love the film, it's not for everyone. A word of warning to anyone who wants to venture down that dark path: it's unlike anything you have ever witnessed and is guaranteed to turn your brain into ice cream.
