Shudder, a new-ish horror movie streaming service, has been a good addition to the world of Perverse Osmosis. Mostly filled with second and third-rate kill ’em ups, it is ideal for sleaze merchants in Greyhawk or the Prime Material Plane. Plus strange hints about the ubiquity of punk in the 1980s show up.

Case in point: StageFright, or Deliria for movie snobs, a 1987 slasher from Italy. The movie itself is adequate but more importantly, one of the characters wears a Cramps’ A Date With Elvis t-shirt.

Sure, she gets a pick-axe to the mouth soon after, but for this shining moment, Lux and the gang are on full display.
