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.

Broadening Horizons.

I adore foreign horror films, but I didn't become well versed in the subject until I was well into my twenties and started frequenting the Toronto video stores that I've talked about at length in previous posts. The video store I worked at was more of a meat & potatoes kind of place. Beyond the odd Argento movie, there wasn't a lot stuff to be had – and even then they were often cut to shreds – but I absorbed what I could greedily. This Coverbox Wednesday I showcase the horror films from abroad (almost all Italian imports) that adorned my store shelves.

Yeah I was the same way. I'd seen some when I was younger like Creepers and Demons, but didn't really start watching foreign Horror until high school and college. Wish I had sooner because so many are great.

Oh crud, I totally forgot to put Demons 1 & 2 on here! Oh well, I think I've posted them here before anyway.

Nice Italian theme here!

The Church is sometimes referred to as Demons 3, but there is already a Demons 3 (The Ogre, I believe) and the damn movie doesn't have anything to do with the series.

Yep, The Church was directed by Michele Soavi, who also did Stage Fright and Dellamorte, Dellamorre.
