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.

Day Three: Coven Covers


It should be no surprise that this installment of Coverbox Wednesday focuses on the popular movie villain - the witch. They have been a part of folklore for hundreds of years, and entered modern popular culture when a certain Wicked Witch flew across movie screens in 1939's The Wizard Of Oz. While we're smack dab in the middle of Blair Witch Week, let's spinkle a little Eye of Newt and Toe of Frogge and take a look at some horror offerings featuring witches and witchcraft.

Don't know why Witchcraft II, III & IV weren't in our library. Coincidentally, one of my first drunken memories involves a couple o' buds, Witchcraft V and a whole lot of rum & Coke.

Pazuzu vs. The Hoff?! Truly a match made in Hell!

Referencing the ol' Ouija may be a little iffy, but screw it! I LOVE that cover for Witchboard 2. Sell it Ami! And why change a good thing, as evidenced here.

I misread:

"Coincidentally, one of my first drunken memories involves a couple o' buds, Witchcraft V and a whole lot of rum & Coke."

as:

"Coincidentally, one of my first drunken memories involves a couple o' buds, Witchcraft V and a whole lot of coke."

Whoa, what?! Ha!

Anyway, I quite like witchery-themed horror.
