The Fun House - promo poster pic - 1981 - #810313MO

On March 13th, 1981The Fun House was released to wide-screen theaters, via Universal. The legendary Tobe Hooper was the director for this horror film and Lawrence Block was the writer. I remember watching this movie quite a few times on HBO, back in the day, during an era when the R rated movies were only shown after ten o’clock at night. This creepy film shows why you should not stay overnight at a traveling carnival. Whoa!

Higway To Hell - promo movie poster pic - 1992 - #0313HTHMO

On March 13th, 1992Highway To Hell was released to wide-screen theaters, via Hemdale. A young American couple are warned not to sleep after the second tree on a certain back road, while traveling to Las Vegas to get married. After fueling up their car and falling asleep, (the girlfriend) Rachel gets arrested by a Hellcop and (the boyfriend) Charlie now has to go to hell to rescue his fiancé.

I love the AC/DC title to this movie and its subtitle Where The Toll Is You Soul is classic! This film was directed by Ate de Jong.

The Last House On The Left - promo movie poster - 2009 - #0313TLHOTLMO

On March 13th, 2009 – The super scary thriller, The Last House On The Left, was released to wide-screen theaters, via Rogue Pictures. The iconic Wes Craven directed and produced the original version of this movie, back in 1972. Wes Craven returned to produce this remake with Sean Cunningham. This film took in over 45 million (U.S. dollars) at the box office. I suppose if a house looks creepy enough, don’t go near it. ‘Nuff said.

It Follows - promo movie poster pic - 2015 - #0313IFMO

On March 13th, 2015It Follows is released to wide-screen theaters. Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell, this horror film centers around a 19-year-old girl named Jay and the terrifying situation she finds herself in, after a sexual encounter with another teenage boy. Apparently a supernatural force follows her every step since her sexual encounter and this same evil force can be passed along to another person, via a sexual situation. This movie is obviously pretty darn sexual? Metal be thy name, I’m confused.
