This week's trailer is Alone In The Dark. Not to be confused with Uwe Boll's cinematic abortion, this 1982 slasher was directed by Jack Sholder (of The Hidden and A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 fame).

A few things come to mind while watching this trailer. First, if we were giving out awards for “worst babysitter ever”, I'm sure this girl would be a nominee. Second, I have to say I'm surprised that this film isn't more well known, considering it has not one, not two, but three horror heavyweights in it. Plus Murdoch from TV's The A-Team!
It's been a very long time since I've seen this movie, but there are still a few bits that stick in my head, including the sex scene glimpsed in the trailer, as well as a pivotal scene with a character named Bleeder. He is significant because he dons a hockey mask during the film, much like Jason Voorhees did in Friday the 13th Part III.
Funny thing is these two movies were both released within a few months of each other, so it is highly unlikely one knew about the other. I guess it's just one of those things.
