VIP’s of Slasherdom: Bub

At the request of reader @horrordad, our second inductee to the Slasherdom Hall of Whateverâ„¢ is stoner shelf-stacker extraordinaire, Bub, of awesomely gooey supermarket slasher, Intruder, played by Burr Steers, who went on to have an impressive Hollywood career, appearing in Pulp Fiction, and directing Zac Efron flick 17 Again, amongst other pursuits.

“Brain hemorrhage!”


Missive: To fritter his earnings from the Walnut Lane Market on pot and then claim unemployment.

Backstory: He was once nearly killed by checkout girl Jennifer’s psychotic ex, saved only when his friend hit the attacker repeatedly with a Hamilton Bleech blender.

Why we love him: Bub’s lo-fi stoner schtick – this was the age of Bill & Ted – just make him likable. He also cops one of the more inventively gruesome demises in the film: Head forced into a hydraulic box compressor. Ouch.


  • AWESOME!!!! This is the highest honor I’ve ever received!

    I think Bo Stears natural cadence elevates Bub’s stoner status. He’s the most genuine sounding slasher stoner.

  • As long as we’re taking (pending) requests, I believe Violet from A New Beginning deserves VIP status. For obvious reasons.

    “I said I was sawry!”

  • YES! Good call! Her effortless robo-dancing sells that.

  • He is also savvy enough to never wear underpants, aware that potential wedgiers could be lurking around every corner.
