The Fiesta 13 1980’s Horror Movie OctoVember Challenge #11: Behind The Door 3 (1989) (Arrow)
62 1980’s Horror Movies in 62 Days.
You know when a bunch of American college students go to Serbia, nothing good can ever happen. Behind The Door 3 is sort of like a Serbian Midsommar.
Behind The Door 3 has nothing to do with the other Behind The Door movies, and while slow in spots, its a solid fish out of water college misadventure with supernatural elements, showcasing a pretty exciting train midsection. An early Hostel vibe.
This one was a surprise, great local mood, all the budget on screen–even a cheesy model train sequence that works–plus a decent plot.
We liked this one and would like to issue an apology to Bo Svenson. We always got Bo Svenson confused with Joe Don Baker which never bode well for Svenson. But Svenson goes all in as the student’s shady teacher, tricking the kids into a pagan ritual and stealing the movie.
