Description: Drama students decide to pay tribute to their favorite horror star by stealing his body from his crypt for a farewell party. They fail to realize their violation of the tomb has triggered powerful black magic, and Conrad hasn’t taken his final bows yet.
This 1983 horror film tells about a horror actor (Ferdy Mayne) who plans to make his final mark when he dies. On the night of his funeral, a group of teens decide to have a party in his honor and steal his body from the mausoleum. Soon, their horror icon returns from the dead and haunts them one by one. This is a good, creepy 80’s horror flick that pays tribute to classic films of the genre and is also known as “Horror Star.” The late, Mayne was great in it, the score & sound effects are chilling and there’s some gory make-up effects.
I recommend this to any horror fan.
