Episode 62 - Rich, Chocolatey, Evil-Teens

SEE! outcast, misunderstood and bullied teens summon the power of pure EVIL to reap sweet revenge on their tormentors.
SEE! the unbelievable range of expressions Clint Howard can achieve with his incredibly elastic face.
SEE! way more teenage boys in the shower than you ever wanted to ( I guess that last one is up to personal preference, to each their own).
Welcome back to Flickers everyone. In this edition we dig into a couple of tasty low budget nuggets from 1981. First up, we discuss Fear No Evil. Truly an ambitious effort, which results in a reach-exceeding-grasp situation. We still found ourselves rooting for this thing like the little engine that could. Director Frank LaLoggia manages to create some truly arresting visuals despite a plot that wanders more than a tribe of hunter-gatherers. Coming in next, we delve into Evilspeak, a flick that is a textbook example of how to take a tiny budget and stretch it into something that, while not perfect, is totally satisfying. With a star turn by Clint Howard and a cast packed with "hey, it's that guy!' character actors, not to mention a healthy dose of juicy, practical, gore effects, you will not be disappointed.  As ever, please post comments on our Facebook page or email us at flickersfrom@gmail.com or flickersfrom@yahoo.com.

  2. Massacre at Central High is AMAZING! Thanks about the show! High school was a volatile time I suppose. It certainly had it's ups and downs for me.
