1988 Primal Rage

Synopsis: A scientist at a Florida university inadvertently creates a 'rage virus' while performing experiments intended to restore dead brain tissue in baboons. When a journalist for the college paper breaks into the campus lab, he's bitten by one of the infected baboons; the virus soon spreads to a trio of troublemakers and a valley girl, all of whom go on killing sprees.

A decent 1988 horror movie with okay gory makeup effects. Contains a great Halloween party scene and very 80s music throughout the film. Rated R. The official DVD released by Code Red is sold out and hard to find for a reasonable price but you can buy a bootleg on for $8 or you can watch below from

1984 The Fall Guy - October 31st with Elvira

Here is a post for Ladydragon Queen who is also participating in the 2014 Countdown to Halloween. You can view her blog at

Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and veteran horror movie actor John Carradine guest star in a Halloween haunted house mystery solved by The Fall Guy which is a TV series that starred Lee Majors as Hollywood stuntman Colt Seavers (also nicknamed The Fall Guy) who moonlights as a bounty hunter. Carradine's sons Keith, Robert, and David Carradine also made a cameo appearance with their father but that scene seems to be missing from this video.

This is the 7th episode of the fourth season of The Fall Guy that originally aired on October 31, 1984. It's called October 31st and is the first of two episodes of the series that Elvira guest starred. The second episode was called October the 32nd and aired the following year, I posted that episode during 2012's Countdown, you can watch it here.
