"That's for Spiro Agnew!"
Pledge Night (1990) aka A Hazing in Hell
Dir - Paul Ziller
now it was time for my pick! Unfortunately we had technical difficulties with what I brought and I was forced to use my back-up. It's all good though, because this is a fun slasher that no one had seen or heard of and it went over rather well. The first half of the film is just a bunch of hazing of fraternity pledges with degrading acts like eating worms, paddling, picking up cherries in their butt cheeks and drinking gross concoctions. When they get their "shakes" they try to decide what to do with it and one of the group suggests "maybe we can stick it up our assholes." They say there aren't any bad ideas in brainstorming but... damn. The last act has some crazy killing courtesy of a demon hippie spouting 60s themed one-liners. You're welcome.
Bonus Fun Fact: Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna plays the killer in a flashback before his accident and supposedly Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson is a party girl in one scene, but I cant find her.
