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.

Fade To Black

I’ve been talking a lot about movie theatres lately. With the blackout last week, my 3-D experience and yesterday’s movie-within-a-movie slasher, it only makes sense that they have been on my mind. It started me thinking that cinemas are somewhat strange places. They are dark, loud and cramped with limited access points. Things can happen around you and you would not even be aware of it. Having said that, is it no surprise that several horror movies have honed in on that and set themselves – all or in part – within the blackened aisles of the theatre? This Coverbox Wednesday is a selection of such films. Until next time, I’ll be sitting in the back row.

Thanks be to Schwartzy for that last one. I have no idea how it could have slipped my mind. It's not like I haven't seen it several times. Forest for the trees and all that, I guess.

I can't believe you left out DEMONS!!!!!

I demand you add it immediately. And make sure it is the cover with the demon with all of the mustard and ketchup on him :)
