    Slaughter High

    ★★★★

    I think I watched the worst transfer ever, but this was terrific.

    ★★★★

    If this weren't "Chucky" or a Child's Play movie, I think this would be generally accross the board liked.

    Not even two weeks ago, I took a picture of what was on my TV and posted it on Facebook with the caption "Because for some reason, I felt like punishing myself."

    It was of the TMNT game for NES. I did not say it was a TMNT game, but the next day I started getting ads and articles for TMNT…
