The 1985 started on a Tuesday, as The Cold Wars continued. The Discovery Channel debuts on cable television. Children and teens played with The Nintendo Entertainment System. On radio we had to hear again…and again…and yet again that annoying charity song “We Are The World.” This was followed by the Live Aid concerts which took place in Philadelphia and London. The proceeds from this event would raise over 50 million for famine relief in Ethiopia.

1985 saw the theatrical release of H.P. Lovecraft’s Re-Animator. This film was based on the H. P. Lovecraft story “Herbert West-Reanimator” and since has retained cult status.

Speaking of movie madness, I’m going to try something different; a movie trailer of the week.

Here’s a trailer from the year 1973. The same year that brought us Deep Throat, Roe Vs. Wade, An American Family, Dark Side of The Moon, and Watergate. The same year that NYC celebrated the opening of the World Trade Center, and 42nd street grindhouse was in full swing. This film opened in 1973 as well. Perhaps not as historic, but hey. To be perfectly honest, I haven’t seen this film either. My guess is that like others, the trailer is usually more entertaining than the movie itself. Here goes; Cannibal Girls!
