JEEPERS CREEPERS - "Where'd You Get Those Eyes?" (2001)

 Welcome to Demonween Saturday in The Dungeon! It looks like it's going to be one of those kind of weeks!

"Jeepers Creepers" came out in 2001, the same year as our debut film "The Creep," and I have to tell you, for approximately nine million, nine hundred and sixty-five thousand dollars less than what these people spent, our movie looks pretty damn good by comparison!

 I'm not quite sure why this is considered a Halloween movie, there's no pumpkins or trick or treating! I guess anything sorta scary is considered Halloween grub these days! So here we go, you've got a brother and sister named Trish and Darry headed home on the back roads!

 The very lovely Gina Phillips is Trish! Gina is now 48 and she wasn't in II, but last year they brought her back for "Jeepers Creepers III." She was probably about this thrilled!

 Beautiful girl with a beautiful 1960 Chevy Impala, so far so good!
 "See the world today, in your Chevrolet, America is asking you to come!" Just don't come to this neck of the woods!

 Then the kids see a guy throw something that looks like a body down a hole! Darry falls in by mistake and is not thrilled about what he finds! What kind of a name is Darry anyway? I never heard that one before! Darry is played by Justin (Drunk History) Long!

 The song "Jeepers Creepers" by Paul Whiteman and his Swing Wing played on the radio in 1938. It was written by the hitmeisters Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren! Johnny Mercer also wrote the lyrics to "That Old Black Magic," "Satin Doll," and "Moon River" just to name a few!

 Everything's gone haywire, the kids are being pursued by some freak, and they need some help!

 But they are not going to get any assistance from this rocket surgeon convention!

 I'm not taking the time to do any research to find out who this mean sumbitch is, or what his trip is because I basically don't care! The rest of the movie he's chasing the kids, and the "Jeepers Creepers" song plays! Just like "Neon Maniacs," the makers of this film don't bother trying to explain anything! Maybe it's because none of it makes any sense! I know one thing, he just wants to eat one of them!

 The kids are safe in the police station! Right!
 It's so safe in here, the demon creature breaks into a holding cell and eats one of the prisoners!

 Finally, the creature catches up to the kids!

 Still in the police station, the demon thing is on the other side of a two-way mirror!

 He likes to sniff and lick! He wants one of the kids, we still don't know which one yet!

 The creature goes into another full-blown transformation!

 The is the look of a girl watching a killer creature demon fly off with her brother into the evening sky! Darry is the chosen one!

 Parents are here to get you!

 I still prefer movies that actually end, but apparently that's not the way things work any more these days!
Honestly, the 1939 Looney Toons cartoon of "Jeepers Creepers" was more up my alley!
"In the meantime, in between time, Ain't we got fun?"
You want to see something really scary?? You can thank my pal 'The Brain' for this one!

DEMONS 2 / Let's Party! - 1986

Around this joint, one good DEMONS deserves another, so's, here's DEMONS 2! The story's about a documentary that's being shown on TV of group of teens who investigate the legendary Forbidden Zone, in which a demon infestation once took place. After finding a lifeless corpse of a demon, one of the teens causes it's resurrection, and, demons make their way into the world by a TV-broadcast! All Hell breaks out when a girl gets possessed while watching the documentary and the entire building in which she lives turns into a living nightmare....

There are a total of six of these Italian DEMONS flicks featuring tons of slimy old demons to keep us happy campers!

Here we go again, now we're watching a documentary where some teens are searching for the mysterious 'Forbidden Zone.' The program is on all the televisions in an apartment complex...

The teens find a demon corpse in the ruins and examine it, which is... A Very Bad Idea!!

This lady's watching the show just before her birthday party begins...

So, the party has begun and it's time to blow the candles on the cake out! And, a few moments later she's a freakin' full fledged demon, let the party shift gears!!

Okay, now the demons are loose and on the prowl, so, the uninfected people rush to get away!

All the normies meet in the basement where the cars are parked. They eventually figure out that the place is completely locked up and they cannot leave the damned place!

Okay, here we go... After this little guy is terrorized he gets infected and goes after mom! Then, he flops onto the floor and a little demon crawls out of his stomach!.. Gross!!

Hey, the little critter looks pretty cute after he's cleaned up a bit...

This is a nice creepy scene where our hero is being chased up elevator cables. Good news is, the demon gets booted off the cable and it falls all the way to the bottom with a crash!

Down in the basement, Hell has broken out. Our main guy gets infected when a demon digs its claws into his old nut sack!.. What a way to go!!

Our hero and one girl make their way into the room where the documentary is being broadcast, the place from where the demon curse is being produced!

They have to deal with another demon, until...

Hero boy figures out that destroying the equipment will end the insanity!.. Join us again tomorrow when Eegah!! will have another Halloween Countdown Treat for us!

NEON MANIACS - "Freak Frolic Night" (1986)

 This Wan and Waxen Wednesday edition of our Halloween Countdown is a 1986 film called "Neon Maniacs."

"Neon Maniacs" is basically a mess! If you don't believe me then just do a YouTube search and come to your own conclusion! This thing is all over the place for free, so there's nothing stopping you except your own good taste!

 There's a big scary door underneath The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, and on the other side of that door lives 13 freakaholic mutant jerkoffs!

Maybe they were trying to sell a set of trading cards! Hell, I don't know, but here are seven in no particular order! I don't know or care who's who, and it really doesn't matter for various reasons! This thing's name is Axe, I'm pretty sure!

I'm pretty sure this jackass is Ape!

This is Doc! Nice guy, at least he uses ether on his victim before he cuts his heart out!

 The rest of this clan of creeps were named Archer, Decapitator, Hangman, Juice, Mohawk, Punk Biker, Samurai, Scavenger, Slasher, and Soldier! There don't appear to be any chicks, so maybe that's what they're so pissed off about!

 My opinion too!

 So, for no explainable reason, these creatures are terrorizing a bunch of teenagers, killing and maiming, torturing, and chasing them all over town. There are a couple of kids in general they are really after! I give them credit, there are some interesting shots like this.........

........And this!!!

This is a location shot to prove it was happening in San Francisco!

 The climax of the film is a big costume party billed as "Freak Frolic Night," that allows the monsters to blend in with all the costumed revelers!

 The main attraction of the party is a 'Battle of the Bands' billed as a battle to the death! The new wave band is called The Outlaws, and the metal band is called Jaded! I think they should have both lost!

 While the mutant monster creatures are attacking and killing everybody, the two main teen characters think it's a good time to screw!! 
From the beginning to the end there's no explanations for why these creatures exist, where they get their powers and costumes, and why they do the things they do, then "Neon Maniacs" ends right where it started, absolutely nowhere!
