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.

Be Seeing You, Number Six.

I woke up to some sad news this morning. Actor Patrick McGoohan died Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 80. McGoohan was probably best known as the rebellious captive Number Six in the 1960's sci-fi show The Prisoner. I loved that friggin' show. Even though it only lasted one season and seventeen episodes, its influence on science fiction programming would be felt for years to come. In addition to The Prisoner, he also appeared in many movies, including A Time To Kill, Escape From Alcatraz and also played the villainous King Edward Longshanks in Braveheart. Happy trails, Mr. McGoohan. You will be missed.

Sad news indeed. BIG fan of The Prisoner, back in high school my buddy Xris built a role-playing game based on it!
