And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Jesse Tyler made his television debut in 2002 in … Absolutely Fabulous? Yep, it’s true. Take a look.

Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70’s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Michael will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. At #21 is … Motel Hell

“It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent’s fritters.” Motel owner Vincent (Rory Calhoun) and his sister Ida (Beulah Balbricker herself Nancy Parsons) have a secret garden where they grow the special ingredients they need for their famous smoked meats. Motel Hell is a lot of fun, alternating between horror satire and gruesome set pieces. And this is the third greatest Rory Calhoun film of the 80’s (behind, of course, Angel and its sequel Avenging Angel)
