    I have been avoiding hospital massacre for some time now. Not sure why, but is it really in the top of the genre? Must have missed this one, should I buy?

    Hospital Massacre is pretty good - it's kinda like a cross between Halloween II and My Bloody Valentine, but not as good as those two. However, it has some fun kills, a very attractive leading role (Barbi Benton) and the killer is a whack job!

    Not sure where you're buying it as it has not been released on DVD, at least not in the states. There's two versions - Hospital Massacre and X-Ray, but X-Ray is cut by like 20 minutes (some gore and just random scenes). If you like 80's slashers there's really no reason to avoid it.

    Blood and Lace - great flick! I have that poster.

    Evil Judgment eh? What's your take on that one? I have the vhs, and noticed there's a recent DVD release - I haven't watched either yet.

    ^ Evil Judgment is a decent flick with an interesting mob connection to the slasher goings-on. As for kills, most of them are simple throat slashings. The lead girl and her moody boyfriend cracked me up more often than not. There's also a pointless but amusing bit with an angry customer pissing in his soup and a diner owner who looks like a burnt out "Super Mario". I love the VHS art for this one, but yeah, decent movie, not great.

    Thanks for the info - sounds like there's a few scenes I'd find amusing :D

    Do we know if the Televista DVD release is anything more than a VHS rip?

    Televista is a bootlegger from what I have read on various boards. Most of they're stuff is nothing but VHS rips.

    Televista = Jef Films = Substance = MVD = all bootlegs.

    I have the dvd and yes nothing more than a vhs rip. As far as the movie goes I still havent gotten through it. I popped it in late one night and lets just say it didnt keep me awake. I'll have to give it another shot.

    Including pseudo-slashers and proto-slashers, these are my favourites, in very rough order:

    Halloween
    Halloween II
    Black Christmas
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
    The Prowler
    Madman
    Hell Night
    Maniac Cop
    Halloween 5
    Halloween 4
    Friday the 13th: Part 2
    Friday the 13th
    Friday the 13th: Part 3
    The Unseen
    Rituals
    The Burning
    The House on Sorority Row
    My Bloody Valentine
    Just Before Dawn
    Prom Night

    And I have yet to see Curtains, Final Exam, The Mutilator, Night Warning, Night School, Silent Scream, Sweet Sixteen, and The Town that Dreaded Sundown, so my list is not set in stone.
