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.

Marilyn Chambers 1952-2009.

On a semi-related, yet very sad note, actress Marilyn Chambers passed away last weekend. She was 56. Even though she was mostly known for her adult film career - namely her role in the first mainstream porn film Behind The Green Door - horror fans will remember her as Rose from David Cronenberg's 1977 film Rabid. Who didn't see this coverbox growing up in the eighties?

And you want to hear something really eerie? Trash Palace actually screened Behind The Green Door last Friday, literally mere hours before her death.

R.I.P. Marilyn. You died way too young.
