80s slasher movie at carnival or fair?

OK…here’s another one…

80’s slasher movie set at maybe a carnival, fair or some other end of school festival in a dark wooded park area with a pavilion or decorated tent. Not much else I remember except for towards the beginning there’s a party with a live band that looks like a bunch of undead gangsters that plays that 80’s retro rockabilly and had a stupid name like the Corpse Devilles (don’t hold me to that).

Note: ‘The Funhouse'(1980) seems like a good possibility but not totally…and…band could be John Carpenter’s Coupe Devilles but they never did the costume thing.


80s movie…girl from ocean and a big-ass sea turtle

Late 70s early 80s…prologue has young boy playing with girl on beach. Girl disappears into ocean. Drowns? Years later boy comes back to seaside town as man and starts seeing the young girl now as mysterious woman that seems to come out of ocean and is friend to giant sea turtle. His buddy is the captain of a fishing boat (played by ex-football player?) and at end is dragged to bottom by the turtle.

Its right at the front of my brain but I can’t Google the sucker…plus I’m liking the process of seeing who’s got more movie knowledge rolling around their skull. So…help me put my mind right and halp me out.

english psychological horror from late 70s, early 80s

OK…lets take this one out for a spin for my first post.

I have a vague memory of an English movie from the late 70s, early 80s about a creepy killer who lives on the top floor of a boarding house…or possibly apartments in an old house. He watches the people that move in below him through a hole in his floor. I think there is an old lady who runs the place, also maybe the typical house cat that ends up ‘teets up’ and at one point two young college(?) women move in under the killer. I remember that its more creepy than anything because it moves sorta slow and ominous. And it has that 70s horrible sound quality especially when someones screaming or he’s doing his creepy laugh. I probably saw it on an old Sat. night ‘creature feature’ type series. But I remember that it wasn’t edited for blood or sex so I’m not sure where it aired.
