Decades of Horror 1980s is partnering with the WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL ( which now includes video episodes of 1980s and is available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, and its online website across all OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

The owner of a closed-down slaughterhouse sets his intellectually disabled psychopathic son on the people who want to take his land away and the unlucky teens who decide to party there.

Ah, Slaughterhouse (1987). “You’ll Never Get Out in One Piece!” is one enticing tagline while the second tagline, “Buddy Has an Axe to Grind. A Big Axe,” may give you a better idea of what you’re in for with this low-budget dark comedy slasher. The Grue Crew chuckles aimlessly at the humor, gags at the gruesome opening shots, and questions the film in general. As Bill says, at least it goes for Texas Chainsaw Massacre instead of Halloween. Snort, snort!

Every two weeks, Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s podcast will cover another horror film from the 1980s. The next episode’s film, chosen by Bill, will be Conan the Barbarian (1982). You all know what’s best in life, right?
