WTF Wednesday: THE MAJORETTES (1986)

Welcome to WTF Wednesday, where I take the weirdest moments from the best (and, more often than not, worst) horror flicks around and share them with the public. Lately, I've been noticing that the movies I watch could be condered "strange" and "unorthodox," if you will. As a result, I have seen some seriously dumb and confung stuff from all sorts of films, especially the horror genre. Whether it be something completely unrelated to the film, something totally weird added into the plot, or just a funny line of dialogue, most movies have moments that leave me wondering, "What the fuck?" And nearly no movie does this better than The Majorettes.

?t=1329959723 Okay, so here's the deal: the teenage couple I told you about stumble upon the dope-dealing agenda of the gang of punks, so they kidnap them and take them to an old warehouse to sort things out. However, the mentally challenged son shows up to rescue the majorette so he and his mother can gain the inheritance, and a fight ensues. During this, the lovebirds decide to make a hasty getaway, but the punks shoot the majorette and think they have killed the boyfriend. Unfortunately for them, they didn't. Of course, nce this was made in the 80's, Buff McManly rips off his shirt, grabs a semi-automatic, and goes to the woods to dish out a red hot plate of bullet-infused fury! The gang, of course, has little remorse for what they have done and are figuring out how to not get in trouble with the law. However, Blaster McBrawn shows up and blows up their van, and as they each come out of the camper, he shoots them down in a blaze of explove vengeance! Well, the gang leader manages to run off into the woods with a bleeding leg, and Thick McRunfast pursues him. He finally gets him backed up against a tree where he pleads for his life. However, Big McLargehuge isn't having it, and proceeds to make swiss cheese out of his scumbag body. There's a scene at the end that returns to the slasher sub-genre and kind of wraps everything up, as well as hinting at a sequel. But this scene is by far the highlight of the movie. In fact, the only thing this sequence is misng is an uber-cheesy '80s action movie synth score. I mean, imagine watching this scene with the theme for Exterminator 2 in it! That would have been amazing By itself, the scene isn't too much on the "WTF" scale, but given the context of the rest of the movie, it will leave your head bleeding because you've scratched it too hard. It really must be seen to believe, and it actually makes The Majorettes worth watching. The full movie is on YouTube, and if you want to watch this particular moment skip to about 1:08:10. However, I would highly suggest watching it in its entirety just so you can see how totally out of left field it really is. You may suffer, but I thought it was worth it.

Well, that's our WTF moment for this week; tune in next time for even more weirdness in horror movies!

Is it wrong that I looked at your cap of the girl about to get sliced in the pool and thought "Damn that's going to need a lot of chlorine"? This film sounds bizarre. I may have to check it out.
