FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

"Relax...I'm not some kind of crazy killer."

Can you guys believe that Killer Workout has been on DVD and Blu-ray for longer than one minute and I have not upgraded from my VHS copy? Can you also believe that I've talked about it so much but have never properly reviewed it? What is even wrong with me?

This question slapped me right in my face earlier today when Jason, having been recently touched by the film for the very first time, inducted Killer Workout into his long-running "Thursday's Ways Not To Die" series at My New Plaid Pants.

His post got me thinkin' about it, dang it. I need to slap on a leotard ("No, you don't!" -- everyone) and make the jump to modern disc-based technology so I can post some screencaps and gifs and finally, finally do a Killer Workout masterpost.

I am glad, however, that Jason giffed this moment, for it's one of my favorite moments in the film. Just another gal caught playin' with a jockstrap!


Oh my God, I love Killer Workout.

This has been available in what I'm sure is a fairly rubbish print on UK DVD (as Aerobicide) - I actually used to own a copy but it's been so long since I watched it as someone appears to have borrowed it from me and not returned it (because, well, it's awesome, obviously). So, very happy to hear of a bluray release. I'll be sure to slide it on the shelf right beside the bluray of Death Spa.

I've never actually seen DEATH SPA, but I'm dying to do a twofer/comparison review!

I've heard from a couple different sources that Death Spa is the superior exercislasher but between Killer Workout's music and novelty safety pin I don't think so! I'd be interested in what you think Stacie.

I mean you can't beat an oversized novelty safety pin as a weapon. You just can't! But I am 100% happy to exist in a world where there are two aerobics-themed horror movies.

I'm pretty sure it's a pin which is used as the murder weapon in Fulci's similar Murderrock. If you haven't seen it - imagine the kids from Fame trapped in a giallo with toe-curling dance tracks by Keith Emerson.

Also ontopic (sorta) I recently picked up the UK bluray of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers and it has Linnea Quigley's Horror Workout as an extra.
