gremlinsThe ultimate comedy-horror movie monsters. And who hasn't seen "Gremlins" today? The malicious monsters emerge in timeless, cult figures of the cheesy horror that with the hilarious but also killing their actions create an entertainment extravaganza that beg me not to finish. On the other hand the luscious Gizmo is perhaps the most lovable pet that we've seen in a horror movie.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)

(Henry, Portrait of a killer)

henryThis is one of the most gruesome horror movies with serial killers shot ever. The merciless Henry along with his assistant Otis wreak terror on the streets of Chicago picking with violent methods and plenty of sadism unsuspecting victims, determined to even whole families! The film was to be released in 1986 but had to reach in 1990 to succeed. You see, the brutal and appalling nature of the pitted with expected censorship of the era. The morbid atmosphere can be compared with only few similar movies (e.g. the other abomination called "Maniac"). The film becomes even more "obnoxious" If you consider that is based on two real serial killers Henry Lee, Lucas and Otis Toole that shook the UNITED STATES during the 70s and 80s. The Michael Rooker couldn't interpret convincingly the relentless nature of Henry while the haunting music blends seamlessly with the climate of fear that exudes the unhealthy work. Afford to see?
