Scalps (1983) Despite the shoddy editing, novice acting and the murky video, Scalps actually has a few things going for it. Mainly it’s the eerie music/score. Somewhere in the California desert, spirits of Native Americans haunt an area that’s targeted by a group of young archeologists. You know they haunt the place because we see a zombie-like Indian face flash sporadically. After the spirit possesses one of them, it’s bye bye archeologye. The possessed starts acting strange, but his friends don’t realize his obvious behavior change before it’s too late. You want to know what happened when his friends didn’t recognize the symptoms? They were SCALPED. [rating: $4]

Spasms (1982)

Spasms (1982) A wealthy man is obsessed with resurrecting the spirit of a giant demon snake. It’s just something he has to do. Peter Fonda’s character and the man’s neice fail in following the creature, while studying the obsessed man’s telepathic connection he has with the snake. After biting people to death and causing spasms, the snake makes its way to the guy who has the supposed connection and the snake kills him, even though they had that telepathic connection. Bad snake, bad movie. [rating: $2] –Kenyon
