It’s almost mind-numbing at times to consider just how many slasher films hit theater screens in the late ’70s and early ’80s, but it’s even more incredible to consider how many twisted variations were hacked out of the same formula. Consider Don’t Go In the House, a grim and very gritty low-budget slasher from 1980. Taking one part from Halloween, one part from Psycho and just a pinch of Saturday Night Fever, Don’t Go In the House unreels the story of a flamethrower wielding stalker. Yes, I did say flamethrower.
Not for the squeamish, check it out this weekend, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. at the Cult Fiction Underground at Logue’s Black Raven Emporium.
