In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Just do it!

Even though this must be the billionth blog out there, I figured what the hell. Procrastination and inactivity are two of my favourite things, so it took a culmination of several events for me to finally start this blog.
The first and main reason was that the website I've been contributing to for several years is finally defunct - or at least inactive. There are probably about a hundred of my past reviews still sitting there. If you feel so inclined to check them out, the site is I wrote under Tom Servo, and my own name. I might link them to this blog at some point, but that is a job for another time. Motivation to write reviews is hard to come by - at least for someone as lazy as me - when you know it will just disappear into the ether once it's sent. Why don't you just post reviews somewhere else? you may ask. Good question. I don't know. I had established myself as the horror "guy", for lack of a better term, at and I guess I just didn't want to start over. However, I finally just had to suck it up and move forward. Secondly, I have a lot of friends who write for websites and I just wanted to get back in the game. Sure, it isn't, but it's still writing. And that's really what it comes down to. I feel the itch to write and this is the best way right now for me to scratch that itch.
I guess the final reason is that I came up with something I wanted to document. There are hundreds of blogs about horror movies I'm sure, but what I plan to do will hopefully be somewhat unique.
Also, I can't forget to mention that nowadays it is incredibly easy for a programming illiterate person like myself to put something that looks halfway decent onto the web. I'm learning as I go here, so please bear with me.
Anyway, on with the show. The Horror Section is open!
