How could I have forgotten that one. That movie along with It surely gave people phobias.

In the spirit of comedy...I bring you my favorite scene from a classic cheese-fest horror movie.

Silent Night Deadly Night 2

Thanks for the contributions, NYK

In honor of the imminent end of civilization I thought I'd go for some mondo-apocolypto...

I present "The Conqueror" Starring John Wayne as Genghis Khan! Yes, I own that little monster.

Edit to add:
By the way no horses were harmed in filming this. These horses were trained for this kind of thing.

Excellent choice on The Conqueror, Deson. Am I wrong in remembering this as the film that was shot on top of a toxic waste dump?

For my next entry, more post-apocalyptic trash. What do you get when you mix Escape from New York with The Warriors?

After a bit of a hiatus, here is my next submission... not a movie trailer, but truly absurd.

Not so much on top of a toxic waste dump but more like area contaminated by radioactive fallout from nuclear testing. To make things worse when they needed to re-shoot some scenes they trucked in more of the radioactive dirt into the studio!!

This may or may not be confirmed but I've heard that there seem to be a higher than normal incidence of cancer among the actors who were in that flick.

Edited to add info from Wikipedia concerning the flick and the radiation.

Well, they obviously had nothing to worry about. I give you a real blast from the past in this excerpt on the 'truth' about nuclear fallout.
