Spookies

I watched this yesterday. My friend was telling me it was the worst horror movie he had ever seen. "Even worse than Grim" he said. I heard it was actually 2 movies that the director somehow spliced together to make 1 movie. One movie is an Evil Dead ripoff, with some young adults in a house while they slowly get posessed one by one. The other movie has to do with an old zombie man who is using demons to kill people so that he can bring his dead wife back to life. Well, I think my friend was wrong. This is not the worst horror movie ever made. I actually liked the Evil Dead part of the movie. The other part with the old guy was actually pretty lame, but I thought it was cool that they actually killed a kid in the movie. The special effects were done by Gabe Bartalos, and they are pretty cool. What is up with those farting zombies? I was laughing so hard. What were they thinking?

Isn't this the one that had some "spider-woman" demon or something like that? If it is, this used to go by the name "Twisted Souls"...I remember reading about it in Fangoria when it was still being made. The pictures they showed from it looked really promising. I remember that several years later, it finally surfaced on video, but nobody in my area ever picked it up and I've never actually seen it.

I love Spookies, there's just something about it. It's fun and original, and best of all it's full of kooky atmosphere. I've never heard about it being spliced together from two movies, it really doesn't remotely appear that way to me.

Ya, it was put together from two different movies. The titles of which I don't know. That big spider woman thing is all that sticks in my memory. Can't recall the farting zombies.

I might be wrong but I think one part of the movie was actually called The Anger ...

Either way, I have fond memories of watching Spookies. Here's hoping for a decent R1 DVD.

I have great memories of this one as well, and it has a nice feeling of nostalgia to it these days. Fun movie.

Haha, Grim is the worst movie I've ever seen, horror or otherwise. I hate that one so very much.

Spookies is an 80's junk classic...I remember it played like 8 weekends in a row at the end of USA network's "Saturday Nightmares". Do you wanna really see a movie that's worse than Grim? Check out The Jar.

I remember the farting zombies in the basement. It looked like they were made out of mud, and if I was in the scene the the farting zombies, they would never finish the scene.

I liked this movie also, still wanting to get the DVD. I prefer the evil dead theme over the host also, it sounded like the host kept talking through an iron tube.

I used to talk online with someone who starred in this movie. The guy does work in fx now and whatnot. Anyhow, he told me this movie was originally much better, but people(Might've been a producer or someone who took over for someone else) took the movie, and added their own stupid shit to make it worse. The farting zombies weren't in the original movie. The fart sounds were added because those people thought it'd be funny.
