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.

RIP Dino De Laurentiis

I, like most cinephiles, was very sad to hear about the passing of legendary producer Dino De Laurentiis last Wednesday. He was 91. Rather than doing my usual rundown of news today, I'm just going to showcase some of the titles this man produced over the years in true Horror Section fashion - with VHS coverboxes. Enjoy, and let us take a moment to celebrate the sheer volume of titles this man helped usher into the world of cinema.

I was a little surprised just how many of my favourite films he'd produced. He certainly had an eye for a good, profitable story.
