It Came From Netflix:New Year's Evil(1980)

By Eric Polk-
A new year, a new series of movies to praise, skewer or just remain indifferent. New Year's Evil comes to us at the height of the slasher sub genre craze of the early 1980s. While it's by the numbers, there are some things that makes this one stand out.

It's New Year's Eve. A lady named Blaze(Diane Sullivan to her mother) is hosting a countdown party on tv complete with rock band Shadow performing a very good soundtrack. Taking telephone calls, one inspired individual threatens to kill one 'Naughty Girl' when the clock strikes twelve in each time zone. I assume this is within the continental Untied States.

The chase is on between her, the cops and the killer who sounds so damn eloquent with his voice changer. Naughty girls get whacked. Shadow rocks. Cheesy secondary story line between Blaze and her son. Obvious twist. The movie, for its flaws, isn't terrible. While I didn't like the killer reveal early in this film, it was well-acted for a slasher, good kill scenes and the music is pretty awesome. Worth a look.

I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through my life weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how I could be transformed into a powerful person when I came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable?
