(Let’s face it, half the fun of horror and exploitation is seeing some hot bodies frolicking around in the buff. And while I worship the female form, I believe exploitation definitely veers into the exploitive when only gorgeous women are on display while their male counterparts remain chastely buttoned up. Therefore, The Backside of Horror salutes the filmmakers and actors whom even up the score a bit by showing us instances of hot and juicy male flesh in their bloody celluloid fantasies.)
In his 1981 emotionally charged horror flick Fear No Evil, director Frank LaLoggia (Lady in White) was reportedly working through his feelings of alienation as a gay youth by depicting the story of a young outsider (Stefan Arngrim from Land of the Giants and Class of 1984) whom is wracked to discover that he is destined to become the personification of Satan on earth.
In direct opposition to usual terror fare, the shower scene here takes place in the guy’s locker room and even includes a very wet, very naked kiss between Arngrim’s Andrew and his prime tormentor, Tony (Daniel Eden).
Arngrim, also, shows his stuff upon emerging from the bed of beautiful of Katherine Rowe McAllen (Julie) in a nightmare sequence.
