Episode 68 - HORROR HOUSE ON HIGHWAY FIVE!!!

Invisible nazis, a guy in a Nixon mask, a truly awful wig and rocket science! This week we’re talking bizarre slasher HORROR HOUSE ON HIGHWAY FIVE!!! Written and Directed by Richard Casey, this non-union flick stars Gina Christian(Christiansen here) & Irene Forrest(F.) as college students researching a rocket built by a nazi scientist who become the targets of a crazed dude in a Richard Nixon mask. It’s a very weird movie with lots of silence, a future superstar cinematographer and one of the best performances by a supporting actor ever! You must have a low IQ!

Big hair, electric guitars and very little sense… this episode we’re talking about 1984 hair metal slasher ROCKTOBER BLOOD! Written by Ferd & Beverly Sebastian with Beverly also in the director’s chair Rocktober Blood stars their son Tracy Sebastian (or Tray Loren as he’s credited here) as Billy Eye, a seemingly(but not really) undead maniac singer with his sights on revenge!
