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.

Higher Learning

This week’s video distributor intro is Academy Entertainment.

This intro was taken from my newly acquired VHS of Bloody New Year.

Academy Entertainment came into being in the mid-eighties and released several horror titles, including Terror at the Red Wolf Inn, Rock ‘n’ Roll Nightmare, Night of a Thousand Cats, Killer Workout and the Witchcraft series, before winking out around 1995. Academy also dealt out action & softcore thrillers, as well as bizarre offerings like the The Linguini Incident with David Bowie & Rosanna Arquette and Prayer of the Rollerboys with Corey Haim. After looking through their catalogue, I was surprised to find how many of them we actually had at my store.
