Raging Demons and Burning Crosses

Day 4 Soul Possessor:

The Exorcist (1973)

Lasted Halloween, I watched this film in a dusty old country movie theater with my Dad and it great to see a 50 year old stance Libertarian freak out over, the flashing demonic images and masturbating crucifix scene. Since the film's it not as intense as people may remember it (the R rating is due to language, well mainly) but sure packs one hell of cinematic punch. From f/x designer Dick Smith's phenomenal makeup work to director William Friedkin's left hook surprises, this is probably the best acted and produced industry horror movie ever made.

Raging Demons and Burning Crosses

Day 3 Soul Possessor:

The Evil Dead (1981)

The original deadly batch of cabin in the woods horror and macabre humor, introducing us to the world's best leading man Bruce 'Don't Call Me Ash' Campbell and iconic filmmaker Sam Raimi. While we don't get the chainsaw arm here, we get plenty of pudding gore and tree violating moments. So grab your Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, chainsaw, and start swinging away.

Ranging Demons and Burning Crosses

Day 2 Soul Possessor:
Child's Play (1987)
The iconic franchise that told you not to play with dolls, the demonic toy Chucky voiced by Brad Dourif maybe one the best voice performances in the history of filmmaker. But please don't kill me for saying it now.

Day 4 Live Round:

Over The Top (1987)

It's funny to say this but this the personally connecting movie to me starring Sly Stallone, maybe it has to do with my Pops being a truck driver and the 2nd chance shot for a parent. But then its pure honky tonk drama for Stallone's ridiculously plotted movies- In order to win back his young son's respect he must win the World Championship Arm Wrestling Competition in Las Vegas. Enough grunting, red necks and sweaty biceps to wrap itself around the globe of ultimate testosterone. The end arm wrestling battle is absolutely a must see for all things Stallone and his drooping lower lip.

Day 3 Live Round

Nighthawks (1981)
Before Sly became Rambo and Rutger Hauer became a Replicant, they starred along with Billy Dee 'Colt .45' Williams in this action packed NYC cops vs. terrorists thriller. Sly who looks like he was going for his Serpico look here, sporting a beard and dark sunglasses takes on European bomber Hauer. A lost classic in terms of the 80s action thriller, originally was to be the third French Connection movie starring Gene Hackman and Richard Pryor. Great twists, train chases, and disco techs galore, Sly even talks in full articulate sentences! While Hauer gives us another one of his great ice cold killer performances, and Billy Dee does his thang. Enjoy this with an cold brew on the side.

Day 2 Live Round:

Tango & Cash (1989)
Where to begin on this epic action buddy team up? First of all several stunts where inspired by Jackie Chan's Police Story movies, Stallone was starting his change from muscle grunt to slick wall street type, Kurt Russell steals the show phoning in as Jack Burton from the classic Big Trouble In Little China, Brion 'Leon' James has one horrible cockney accent, and Jack Palance with James 'Lo Pan' Wong make up as the ultimate 80s bad guys. So many wisecracks, over the top explosions, and Teri Hatcher drumming on beat pads. The more notorious story is how poor director Andrei Konchalovskiy of the underrated 80s classic Runaway Train and cinematographer Barry Sonnerfield where fired in the middl of shooting. Remember always shoot Stallone's good side and never be too serious on set. Have no fear though this movie will get you testosterone flowing except when Russell shows up in drag.

A Week Long Countdown To 'The Expendables'

Day 1 Live Round:

Cobra (1986)

Crime is a disease. Meet The Cure. Sly Stallone's version of what could of been Beverly Hills Cop had it not taken the funny guy route-though one love to 80s Eddie Motherfuckin Murphy. Stallone at his most 80s action sleaze full of sweat, guns, big scary knifes, and a whole lot of Bridgette Nealson saving. I think Stallone regrets making this for several reasons but here at Movie Hopping we thank him for making one of the most unapologetic 80s action movies ever. Bring The Pain!
