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.

United They Stand!

This week's home video distributor intro is United Home Video.

Even if you don't remember the logo, I guarantee you saw some of their offerings back in the day. United and their partner company VCI (which is still in business today) were responsible for unleashing hundreds of genre titles out into the world. This included such colourful titles as The Boogens, Midnight Movie Massacre, Terror at Tenkiller, Fiend and the title the intro above was pulled from...

And though they weren't the first (Western World Video's Sledgehammer has that disctinction), United even released a few shot-on-video horror flicks, such as Blood Cult and The Ripper.
