‘Frightmare’ is such an eminently entertaining, deeply creepy, highly camp, old school 80s spook show.
While a grisly, excessively blood-lashed, lasciviously top-popping slasher can, on occasion, deliver quite a little bit of what you fancy, it is additionally joyous to discover unconventional, independently made genre films that take greater risks with the material, digging somewhat deeper into the marvellously macabre bag of tricks and source less predictable results.
‘Frightmare’ aka ‘Horror Star’ (1983) is just such a sprightly, tawdry slasher trope avoiding gem. Written and directed by Norman Thaddeus Vane ‘Horror Star’ takes a more vintage approach to creep-making, having a theatrical plot not entirely dissimilar to ‘Theatre of Blood’ or ‘The House That Dripped Blood’, full-blooded shockers that actively feature twist-headed horror stars taking their day job a little too seriously. In lieu of Lee or Price, the ‘Horror Star’ enjoys the considerably less storied figure of veteran actor Ferdy Mayne, who, entirely to his credit plays the decidedly sadistic, washed-up horror ham with all the requisite lip-smacking, overcooked glee the role demands.
The youthful members of a collegiate horror society undertake a vastly ill-considered ‘Weekend at Bernies’ lark and somewhat fatally decide to break into the absurdly ostentatious, murderously booby tracked tomb and ‘borrow’ the just recently interred remains of Conrad Ragzof (Ferdy Mayne) and not long after they have brought the unlovely corpse of this once venerated actor back to their Adams Family-style mansion/clubhouse, that the diabolical repercussions of so morbidly nefarious an action begins. As on that very same fateful night, now monstrously awakened by demonic forces arcane, the re-animated, devil-possessed, supernaturally endowed Thespian zealously proceeds to quite literally chew up the scenery as the rampaging Ragzof goes about completing his maniacal vendetta, luridly dispatching the beleaguered members of ‘The Horror Film Society’ with theatrically grisly aplomb!
And it is the wonderfully visceral pleasure of seeing a wickedly unrestrained Ferdy Mayne zealously Todd Slaughtering his maniacal way through the shadowy, cobwebbed confines of his immaculately spooky domain which makes the much neglected ‘Horror Star’ aka ‘Frightmare’ such an eminently entertaining, deeply creepy, highly camp, old school 80s spook show.
