Sam Ashurst’s House Of Horror: Killer bees, evil twins and psycho Santas
Looks Like: A skeleton that’s been dipped in toxic waste uses half-finished masks to make people think he’s crying. For some reason.
Actually Is: A love letter to b-movies, Popcorn sees a gang of film students stage a horror movie all-nighter at a run-down local cinema to raise funds for their teacher.
But when a real killer shows up, the kids have to try to survive the night - against a foe who wears the faces of his victims as masks.
Complete with fake film homages and practical effects in-jokes, Popcorn is a movie geek’s dream film, fun from start to finish.
It doesn’t feature a glowing green skeleton wearing a mask, though. Not at any point.
It does, however, feature a lot of reggae. A lot.
Imaginary Dialogue: “Did that radioactive skeleton really think we were going to buy his dumb disguise? For one thing, we could still see the top of his skull. For another, we could see his boney hands holding up the mask. This is awesome!”
