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.

Rise Of The Machines.

All right, so Terminator Salvation blasts into the theatres this week. However, killer machines are not just native to science-fiction. They have on many occasions crossed over into the realm of horror. And why not? The more and more reliant we become on technology, isn't it always in the back of our minds that we would be completely and utterly pooched if one day they decided they weren't going to take it anymore. It was certainly on Jim Cameron's mind when he first created The Terminator twenty-five years ago. This Coverbox Wednesday, I showcase those movies that play with that scenario in some way or another. Whether they be under the control of aliens, demons, a comet or an amorous computer, these machines are going to require more than a visit from the Maytag man to put down. I, for one, welcome our robot overlords.
