Today's Horror Choices 09/16/16 - Just Draw a Mummy On My Ass

September 16th is Mexican Independence Day. While I was all ready to gush about Guillermo del Toro's spellbinding horror-fantasy Cronos, a Google search turned up a peculiar trend that I wasn't entirely aware of. I had heard of The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy, of course, because there's a Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode about it. What I was not aware of was that the series also included "The Aztec Mummy" and "Wrestling Women vs. The Aztec Mummy". Also present in the google search results was a trailer for "Mil Mascaras vs. The Aztec Mummy". I haven't seen any of these movies, but I think I will be checking at least one of them out today.

God damn it Jose, how do you even make salsa this hot!?

Today also sees the birthday of one Jennifer Tilly, probably best known to horror fans as Tiffany in the later installments of the Child's Play franchise. I'd go with Seed of Chucky as it's also Working Parents Day as well as National Tattoo Story Day. Even though it may be nothing more than a corny marketing campaign, Tattoo Story Day lets us branch into Red Dragon and even Dog Soldiers.

This day back in 1987 also saw the release of Street Trash, a true modem classic that forever changed the way we think about cinema and its effect on the world's cultures. There are no movies "like" Street Trash, no marathon to be extrapolated from it. It's a singular experience incomparable to any other. Enjoy it. You've earned it.
