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.

Deja Vu?

Well, I guess there's nothing to be done bearing yesterday's Suspect Video tragedy, except move on.

On that note, I was surfing The Movie Blog, as I do regularly, and I came across the new one sheet for the upcoming horror flick The Ruins. I immediately noticed an uncanny resemblance to another movie poster involving spelunking. Is it just my imagination? Or am I onto something here. You decide.

You know? Sometimes it seems like the people who design horror posters just have a couple of templates lying around and they just re-tweak them in Photoshop every time the phone rings. Kind of like the horror genre en masse it would seem sometimes.

Okay, jaded rant over. Just making an observation.

One last note about the Queen Street fire. You can visit Colin Geddes' RIP Suspect Video facebook page, by clicking here.

Ugh, I know what you mean. I love collecting horror movie posters online, printing them off and mounting them on card for my wall but some of them look exactly the same as others!

I dislike the horror movies that have no creativity when it comes to poster or DVD art and I'm bored of the closeup of a woman screaming that seems to decorate many horror films nowadays.
