Halloween Movie Countdown – Part 2
From the Dead of Night (1989)
My mom suggested I watch this movie. It stars Lindsay Wagner (remember the Bionic Woman?), Robin Thomas (who, whenever I see him in anything say “it’s Geoffrey with a ‘G’ from Who’s the Boss?) and Bruce Boxleitner (total 80’s heart throb…*sigh*).
I saw this movie years ago and completely forgot about it but when I re-watched it, I remembered most of it. Weird how that happens.
So, the gist of this movie is Lindsay Wagner’s character has an accident and basically bites it. She’s making her way through the bright white light and sees several figures on her journey. But, her knights in shining armor revive her and bring her back to the land of the living. But, turns out, she’s not the only one to come back. The figures she sees while dead, follow her back, in the form of others, and one-by-one, they each try their turn at killing her…again.
I have to say…for a cheesy-what-was-probably-a-made-for-TV-movie in the 80’s, this one was pretty good. Parts of it were creepy enough that I may have turned the light on once or twice in the middle of the night.
The best part of this movie tho….let’s be real…it was Bruce Boxleitner. *Hubba Hubba*
There is something about that feathered hair that just makes my heart thump and puts a little grin on my face.
All in all, this was a decent movie…go watch it.
PS…I found it on YouTube. ;P
