HE KNOWS YOU’RE ALONE (1980) MORE FUN THAN A BARREL OF MONKEYS (AND BARRELS FULL OF MONKEYS ARE AWESOME)

ALONE1

This may not actually be more fun than even one actual monkey, but there’s something about the 80s slashers that I just love – even though I hated the 80s. Practical effects, bad hairdos, boobs, innocence…. these things just always seem to work for me. One morning the wife and I got up and were watching that morning TV show over here with that short blond and the dude with the huge gap in his front teeth and they were interviewing Tom Hanks because of that Captain Phillips movie and they asked him what his favorite movie he’s been in was. He said this one – because it was his first ever movie role, so I fired it up and – yep – I sure enjoyed it. There’s nothing different about this than any other slasher from the 80s but you do get some of this:

A little bit of this:

Some of this:

A dab of this (if you recognize her, this is the chick from SAVAGE WEEKEND):

And some of this:

ALONE6

And, for real, that scene with the chick in the headphones is all kind of fun. There’s also some stereotypical 80s New York (I think) cops that are pretty funny, smoking inside of buildings, pay phones and cheap gas.  For fans of the genre, you’ve seen this before so there’s not much to get too deep into – but I think you’ll like it too – if you like this kind of movie. I don’t usually come in under 300 words, so, if I get frisky, I’ll put something else out this afternoon.
