A Ridiculous Scene classic. This moment from 1998’s I Still Know What You Did Last Summer must rank as one of the most inexplicably idiotically deranged moments ever to spew from the mind of a screenwriter.
I mean… how the FUCK is that even achieved!?
In a film jammed full of nil-possibles, Julie and the prophetic karaoke machine of dooooom takes the gold.
Considering the 90s slasher movies were built on a base of being more believable than their ancestors, it’s mindboggling to consider that just the second film in this series swung a wrecking ball through all the hard work done in the original film to make yer standard slasher plot that little less reliant on clichés.
This months Ridiculous Scene comes courtesy of seldom seen 1981 Z-movie House of Death (or Death Screams), the chintzy Friday the 13th wannabe that notoriously plays out of sequence on the R2 DVD.
What happened last time I was shot in the back with an arrow? Why, I ran to the nearest merry-go-round of course! Just like this badass chick…
It’s worth noting that on said shitty R2 DVD, the scene ends when the carousel begins moving – we don’t see Badass Headband Girl get asphyxiated for reasons unknown (I had to get stills from YouTube!) – but then if the distributors can’t even get the fucking film on the disc in the right order, what hope is there of them providing it uncut?
As much as I *heart* The Slumber Party Massacre, some zany shit happens in it, such as this hilarious scene where nominal heroine Valerie selects a weapon to fight off the rather unimposing psycho, Russ Thorn. But things don’t go to plan…
