Our first feature features a trio of all-star psychos who escape from the nuthouse to terrorize their psychiatrist and his family in their secluded house, followed by some excellent Spam in a Cabin hi-jinx  courtesy of Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and the Bruce, which FINALLY found its way to the Island.

“What happened with your first two marriages?”

“My wives divorced me.”


“They said I led too dull a life.”







This post is part of the For the Love of Film Blogathon, a new age telethon to raise funds for The National Film Preservation Foundation to help bring The White Shadow (a/k/a White Shadows), an early silent film that a certain master of suspense did just about everything for except direct — assistant director, screenwriter, film editor, production designer, art director, and set decorator, to the streaming masses and help defray the costs of adding a new musical soundtrack.
