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.

Trailer Tuesdays: Cat's Eye.

I happened to be discussing the movie Bad Moon with a friend the other day and after I described it as the “dog version of Cat’s Eye” she revealed that she’d never heard of the 1985 anthology. After later sending her this trailer, I was reminded of how much I loved this movie as a kid.

Cat’s Eye is one of my favourite celebrations of Stephen King’s work. Even thirty years ago, he was a superpower. Before he started farming his stuff out to Mick Garris, King had an almost unblemished adaptation record. I re-watched Firestarter and The Dead Zone on Netflix recently and they both still held up beautifully.
