A few years ago John

The film is set in the future,
the crime rate in America has
risen to over 300% and to deal
with the overcrowding of the
prisons, the government builds a
wall around Long Island, New
York and dumps the prisoners
inside (after having evacuated the
civilians of course).
Things go fairly well for
awhile until the president's plane
is hijacked and crashes in the
middle of New York leaving him
a hostage of the prisoners in this

This film, however, is excellent.
A demented madman starts a
killing spree during a horror
movie film festival. The horrific
touch to this movie is the fact
that the audience secs the
killings, but assumes that it is
all part of the show.
The climax of the film has the
heroine trapped on stage with the
killer ready to strike and the
audience cheering him on. It is a
really neat film.
Michael J. Fox (whom we all
remember from Family Ties)
stars in this film as an up-and
coming plastic surgeon who,
while on his way to Hollywood,
wrecks his car in a tiny little
hickville. It's in this town that he
meets Julie Warner, a really hot
ambulance driver, and falls in
lust/lover with her.
Fox deals out his usual
comedy while relating to the
"squash festivals," "pet pigs” and
other wacky small town stuff. As
the story goes on, Fox and
Warner get closer and closer but

Craig's Top Ten Favorite Horror
How many times have you ever actually seen someone's eye get
poked out ?
Skinless people, buckets of blood, and a Rubik's cube; what more
could one ask for?
Bringing back people from the dead was never so much fun!
7. Prince of Darkness
John Carpenter directed this film and gave us a new look into
religion along'with the suspense and horror he's famous for.
6. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
The scariest thing about this film is the way it shows that a
psycho killer looks and acts just like any of us. Even Siskel and
Ebert liked this one.
5. An American Werewolf in London
Two guys are attacked by a werewolf while hitchhiking across
Europe leaving one dead and the other another werewolf. As if
being a werewolf wasn't bad enough, he's being haunted by the
ghost of his pal!
4. The Stepfather
This sleeper is about a psycho who marries into families and if
they aren’t "Brady Bunch" perfect, he kills them and moves on.
3. Evil Dead Part 2
The hero cuts off his own hand and replaces it with a chainsaw to
battle evil forces. It has to be good.
2 1/2. Dirty Dancing
Patrick Swayze stars in this film , that makes it scary enough
2. Nightmare on Elm St.
Although parts two through twenty-seven are fairly bad, the first
film in the series is excellent.
John Carpenter gave us this masterpiece a long time ago and began
the "killer that won't die" trend that has been a staple to the horror
