Get ready for a chopping spree you’ll never forget at the MONDO MONDAYS SHOPPING MALL, where the prices are always slashed and the customers are literally dying to get in!
“Close your eyes. Count to 10. And run for your life.” A group of dazed and confused teens spend the night “getting it on” in a local department store after hours, but little do they know their night of retail raunch is about to be put out of business by a blood-thirsty maniac who’s just itching to slash prices … and everything else!
“A must-see! An underrated gem of ‘80s teen slice-and-dice played out in an unusually sleazy manner.” – Retro Slashers
In the brilliantly-titled Hide and Go Shriek, a group of half-witted, big-haired teenagers (including one young woman with hair so enormous she appears to have an angry Ewok attached to her skull), who have, by some stroke of dumb luck, all managed to graduate from high school, decide to celebrate by sneaking in to a closed department store, where they will spend the evening drinking beer, exposing their private parts to one another and reading the collected works of Leo Tolstoy (Not!). Unfortunately for them (but luckily for us), a psycho killer with a grudge and a secret is also spending the night, and the games are about to begin! Piled high with exceptionally stupid characters, awkward male bonding (what, don’t all dudes watch each other lifting weights while fondling bananas?) and some tasty decapitations and mannequin-based fake scares, Hide and Go Shriek eventually enters the bad slasher flick history books with one of the most ludicrous/offensive “twist” endings on record. Like The Breakfast Club only with more gore and less Judd Nelson, Hide and Go Shriek is a movie that will make you happy you’re not a teenager … or a mannequin. (Dir. by Skip Schoolnik, 1988, USA, 90 mins., Rated R)
