Furs on Film – Too Scared to Scream (1984)

In space, no one can hear you do it, but what if you’re just too darn scared to do it in the first place? These questions are not answered in the 1984 film Too Scared to Scream. The film has a pretty stacked cast, though no one really knew that at the time it was… Read More Furs on Film – Too Scared to Scream (1984)

Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

There’s not a lot that is remarkable about Rent-a-Cop. At best, it’s an ‘80s cop show with naughty words and flirtations with more explicit violence. I don’t think it deserved the attention from the Razzies, but the only particularly remarkable thing about it is how well Liza kept warm throughout the winter exterior shoots. And,… Read More Furs on Film – Rent-a-Cop (1987)

Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Want a horror movie set in the desert where the ladies wear fur? Sure, we got that too. Interestingly, White of the Eye relentlessly establishes the southwest Arizona scenery every chance it gets, all so Cathy Moriarty can cruise around it in a red fox jacket. Oh, and a horny housewife can pull the ole… Read More Furs on Film – White of the Eye (1987)

Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Our tour of Italy continues with a film destined to make my inner middle-schooler giggle: Asso. The title translates to “Ace,” and more mature individuals would have used that name. Personally, I would have gone with “Pretty Lady Wears A Lot of Furs.” Asso – The Film Ahem, “Ace” (Adriano Celentano), the greatest poker player… Read More Furs on Film – Asso (1981)

Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

If you’re in the business of reviewing films for marginally esoteric fashion content, specific genres are generally to be avoided. Even in the ‘80s, teens in horror movies did not typically find themselves in oversized fox fur coats. That’s not to say there aren’t exceptions to the horror movie rule, and if you’re making a… Read More Furs on Film – The Stuff (1985)

Furs on Film – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Controversy. That’s what this blog is about. Today we examine the most significant controversy I made up myself in my own head. Also, it’s January, and I’m posting a Christmas movie. I considered waiting for next year, but let’s face facts, what are the odds I’ll still be doing this a year from now? Exactly.… Read More Furs on Film – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Furs on TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Posting has been a little thin in these, the dog days of summer. Not that that’s an actual excuse, mind you, it just sounds nice. In any case, I think this one may be a little popular. My stats are clear on one thing, readers like color, and readers love the ’80s. Hey, I love… Read More Furs on TV – Moonlighting Seasons 1 and 2

Furs on Television – Deceptions (1985)

When TCM gives you lemons, you find an alternate source of lemonade. Thanks to an associate of mine for providing the “raw material” for this one. In my defense, I have a copy of Deceptions from years back, when it was a bit of fluffy filler on the Encore network, and cap quality wasn’t quite… Read More Furs on Television – Deceptions (1985)

Furs On Television – Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis (1988)

Heading back to more familiar territory, the 1980s, with one from “the vaults” of older caps. Always nice to be reminded what a truly spectacular decade that was. With any luck, the fashion cycle will replay it sooner rather than later. I’m filing this under “television” and not film because it was a TV movie,… Read More Furs On Television – Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis (1988)
