Eps 113 – Brain Damage (1988) – Episode 113 – Decades of Horror 1980s

“Uh oh, Brian. Now you’re REALLY losing your mind.” The mysterious creature Alymer (John Zacherle) is giving Brian (Rick Hearst) a pretty hard time. Acting like a real parasite on the back, you could say. Thus, the premise of Brain Damage comes to life. Just your average 80s “Say No To Drugs” special. You got it all; the young relatable protagonist, a drug pushing worm monster, and hallucinations that combine every drug imaginable. Frank Henenlotter’s anti-drug masterpiece has gone underappreciated for nearly 30 years. But on Decades of Horror, we don’t forget. We never forget.

Eps 112 – Robocop (1987) – Decades of Horror 1980s

“I’d buy that for a dollar!” Despite 30 years of time passing, Robocop has satire that’s pretty on point. The innocuous entertainment. Tonally disproportionate news items. Commercials that hawk consumer products that do nothing for their customers. All of it speaks to the world we currently live in. Luckily, Paul Verhoeven manages to slip in some ultra violence, amazing special effects and strong character work in between to make us a bit less depressed. Robocop may not be a horror film, but it speaks to many of the modern horrors we face today. Plus, that weird sewage mutant monster scene.

“Every nightmare has a beginning… This one never ends.” The dream logic of Dressed to Kill is ever present. Director Brian De Palma isn’t nearly as interested in a coherent story as he is the visuals. So many elaborate split diopter shots. More than a few split screens. That weird soft focus that was a thing in the 1970s. But none of this answers the question. Is Dressed to Kill more than just a technical exercise? Tune in to find out!
