Classic horror movies I admit I have never seen....until now! PART 1: THE BURNING (1981)
Yep, I admit it. I have known and heard about this movie for years, but somehow never actually watched the classic 1981 summer camp slasher flick, THE BURNING. I love 80's horror films, so how this one slipped by me all these years is a mystery to me. Well, I finally watched this movie the other day for the first time. It was a great slasher film, just what you would expect from a good 'ol 80's horror flick. One thing that I found fascinating was that one of the main teenagers was played by none other than Jason Alexander, who is probably best known for playing the part of George Costanza on the greatest sitcom of all time, SEINFELD. Jason was about 21 or 22 when he filmed THE BURNING, but looks the part of a teenager for sure. For a SEINFELD fan like myself, it was just amazing to see him with a full head of hair!
Check out the trailer and look for Jason Alexander....you can see him pretty good in the first part of the trailer. He is the kid wearing the green and white 96 jersey in the canoe. If you haven't seen THE BURNING, definitely check it out.
I hope to make this a regular feature on the 4H blog, as I'm sure there are quite a few more "classic" horror films that I haven't seen. What about you? Any of you care to admit to any classic horror films that you know you should have seen but haven't ever watched for some reason? Leave a comment below and let us know!
