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.

The Poster Collection: A-B

So, I guess when you are dealing with a mountainous collection of posters, the best place to start is at the beginning of the alphabet. Most of the ones you'll see over the next several months I acquired while working at both Cockbuster and an Ontario music store franchise called Sunrise Records, while some were purchased legitimately from different establishments. Click on any of the posters to take a closer look.

This poster was purchased from Athena in the UK. I also have a huge 24 x 72" door-sized version of this, as well. I assume that's how it was meant to be displayed, as Giger's pet is bursting through a wooden door in the picture.

The two AOD posters above were ordered via mail from Renaissance. I remember picking up some tees - that have since degraded into holey scraps of cloth - and some 8x10's, as well.

I'll always remember the release of Blair because it came out the same week I waved goodbye to retail sales.

Every time I think of this movie, I recall an exchange between two of my friends. "Hey, let's go see Bone Collector" to which my friend replied, "Bone Collector? More like Shit Collector!"

OMG I completely missed that poster of BRIDE OF REANIMATOR last time as I was at your house looking at your posters. It is amazing!

Retail's not such a bad job, just be a retail manager. Else you don't make much coin..

What didyou switch to after those jobs? Are you in the entertainment industry?

No, you're right, it had its moments. To quote Randall from Clerks "This job would be great, if it wasn't for all the fucking customers."

I switched to a different hell, office drone. Same shit, better pay.
