31 days of October Terror: 10/23

Day 23: My Number 9 favorite is the ultra bizarre no-budget gem Death Wish Club (1983). It's hard to explain my love for this picture, but it is pure. There is no other film like this one (the best comparison I could make is to imagine a David Lynch film without a budget and any pretension and in return you get a zany-fun movie show ride) I get caught up in it's strange world every single time.

Since CLUB never received a proper release, there was no theatrical poster. Instead, I made scans of the 3 different VHS releases I had collected over the years. The film was released on a budget DVD label, and I urge all you fans of cinema looking for something a little different to check it out.

Is this one of the films that was chopped down to 30 mins for the infamous NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR anthology flick? If so, I think I need to seek this out--if it's the one I'm thinking of, it was far and away the best of the bunch. Also the only one without Richard Moll...which you wouldn't think would be a mark in its favor, but in this case it is. :)

Yes, that's exactly it. I never watched that Night Train To Terror as I hear it's an abomination. DWC definitely holds it's own as a wacky 90 minute picture.
