“Should old acquaintance be forgot? Or just brutally murdered!” If your New Year’s resolution is to see more off-the-wall holiday-themed ‘80s horror flicks that feel like an episode of Scooby Doo filtered through The Shining and The Evil Dead, you’re in luck! In the wacko 1987 British horror flick Bloody New Year, a group of young friends find themselves stranded on a remote island, where the only building appears to be an old hotel inexplicably stuck in 1959 and, stranger still, has New Year’s decorations up despite it being the middle of summer. As the fun-loving kids take shelter for the night, increasingly weird events begin to occur, as each of the obviously angry hotel’s new guests meets a gruesome fate while battling ghosts, zombies and even a murderous table! What does it all mean, and how could this possibly be a positive way to start the New Year? The final feature from British horror director Norman J. Warren (Inseminoid), Bloody New Year is a bizarre mash-up of slasher scares, supernatural horror and near surrealism, filled with crazed kills and one of the most absurdly jaw-dropping final twists in any ‘80s horror film. (Dir. by Norman J. Warren, 1987, UK, 86 mins., Rated PG-13)
