Night of Horror (1981) (part 4 of 6)
We next find our good friends, the Three Minor Chords, makings their long-awaited reappearance on the soundtrack. In the back of the camper, Colleen looks pensive as she scribbles on a drawing pad. Suddenly, we see shots of a Confederate soldier on horseback, meaning Colleen is now having “visions”. She starts to draw what she sees, and it looks like a preschooler trying to draw the Wolfman. Or Geezer Butler.
Then we cut to Jeff sitting in the driver’s seat of the camper, stopped somewhere. He’s supposedly talking to Steve in this scene, but Steve is nowhere in the shot, lending more credence to the theory that scenes with Steve were shot on different days than the scenes with all of the other actors. (This is probably because he kept laughing at all the stupid dialogue.)
Anyway, Jeff basically looks like he’s bitching to himself as he gripes about suddenly finding himself lost. He says that on these country roads, “You can’t tell the streets from the ditches!” Jeff, I wouldn’t complain too much, because in your neighborhood, you can’t tell the boys from the girls. Finally, Jeff just decides to pick a road at random and head in that direction.
