Halloween Home Video (1972)

I have been looking at a lot of people’s home videos and I am going to post a few over the next few weeks. Today’s video is from 1972. It starts off nice enough, people showing off their costumes, but it quickly degenerates into chaos. I imagine they had to shut off the camera to stop the blood bath that was about to ensue.

  1. Let’s see, an Indian, a Navy guy, a disco dancer … yup, I’m pretty sure that was the Village People when they were kids.

  2. @Patrick Amen to that, friend!

    This feels like the home video they would show from a particularly brutal slasher film…at the end of the movie after the heroes have slain the killer…you would see back in time the exact moment the killer had been so horribly wronged! It’s at the 32 second mark when the little girl get bonked by the Indian. :P
