Over the last few years many horror satires or spoof have come out. Some from big budget studios and others being independant. DUDE BRO PARTY MASSACRE III is more indie than most unlike most does a great and low brow job of hitting the nail on the head when it comes to spoofing the 80s slasher genre. While it has been in the shop before and we have even had bar screenings of it it has been a while since it was heavily stocked in the shop but here we are this week as it leads the charge of this week’s new releases. And for those not familiar with the film…no, there is no part 1 and 2. It’s part of the joke. Now let’s look at the list shall we?
