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.

Thalassophobia Turns 35.

With all this Film Race stuff going on last week, I completely failed to notice we had a birthday come and go. Thirty-five years ago, Steven Spielberg unleashed Jaws, a film adaptation of the best-selling book by Peter Benchley. It scarred generations of swimmers and made what was actually a malfunctioning mechanical shark affectionately nicknamed Bruce a household name. Three sequels and many knockoffs followed, but none packed the punch that the 1975 film did. Who didn't sneak a look behind them while underwater at the local pool? Just to make absolutely sure. That's the power Jaws had on us all.

Happy birthday, ya big lug.
