Beauty Queen Butcher (1991)

Usually a lost slasher finally getting released makes a few headlines but here’s one that has gone mostly unnoticed. The S.O.V. Beauty Queen Butcher, filmed way back in 1991, wasn’t released until 2007 by Camp Motion Pictures as part of their Retro 80s Horror Collection.

SOV Month Becomes SOV Summer Becomes SOV YEAR!!!

Shot on Video Month becomes Shot on Video Summer!

Thanks to a mini-computer breakdown, I wasn’t able to continue as I would have liked with my SOV Month. So, because I think it’s just that important, I’m extending SOV Month through the simmering summer! YAY! I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve and should have a new review up in a couple [...]
