Movie Poster Madness: "You Are In a Heap of Trouble, Boy!" edition


It's no secret, I love horror films in which the hounded are men rather than women.   I don't know why, but it always tickles me to see a guy victimized as opposed to a woman...then again, I guess women will always look better in lacy gowns while running through the misty moors - though I'd much prefer to see a shirtless hunk running bare ass through a cemetery, but hey, that's just me.  Be that as it may, let's take a peek at some film posters for movies in which the victim was a dude.
Women? What women? This one was all about three guys being terrorized by a tall creepy dude and a bunch of his hooded henchmen!   Several dreadful, nonsensical sequels followed - but we continued on the further adventures of "BOY" (aka Mike), and his former ice cream pushing pal, Reggie. 
Don't be fooled by Shirley MacLaine's name and mug staring at you from this one ... The Possession of Joel Delaney is all about Perry King being possessed by the soul of a Hispanic serial killer and wreaking havoc while doing so.  Plus, King was so damn HAWT in this movie, you'll need a cool drink.  More than anything, this is one of those films that we've seem to forget about, and that's a shame, because it's a pretty effective little thriller.
First was Joel, and now it's David's turn!  This one is a terrific jump fest - say, what do you know? Here's my review!  
Less a horror film, and more of a psychological thriller, 1975's The Reincarnation of Peter Proud hold's a special place in my dark little heart as it provided me, as a young gay boy, with one of my first objects of lust, Michael Sarrazin.  I am sure most of you have no idea who Michael Sarrazin is, and that's OK, as he's not done much of anything in years.  Oh, did I mention that he's bare ass in some of this film?  Well, now I did!

Oh my...The Possession Of Joel Delaney I saw one night home alone as a kid (I knew the parents wouldn't have let me watch it) Oh CRIPES did it scare me!
And Michael Sarrazin WAS hot-what the heck ever happened to him?

Pax, have you caught any films directed by David DeCoteau like The Brotherhood series? I see them getting DVD releases on Amazon a lot, and they all feature men as victims. I've been wondering how they are.

And the paperback of Peter Proud...I remember seeing it in bookstores and supermarkets, and just...touching it.

As usual, cool posters. My personal favorites include DOLLY DEAREST, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3, and NIGHT EYES 2 (a sleazy masterpiece).
