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: The Evil Dead


In keeping with my Tuesday tradition, it made sense to play a classic trailer for this classic movie.

Then, several years later came Evil Dead II. I remember seeing ads for this on late night television during reruns of Benny Hill. I had no knowledge of Evil Dead at this point, but I knew I needed to see this. And thanks to YouTube user robatsea2009, I was able to find one of those original Rosebud TV spots from 1987.



So many great memories!

Lastly, I commemorated the twentieth anniversary of Army of Darkness here a few months back, but here it is again to complete the trilogy.

I scratched my head to try and figure out when I saw the Evil Dead. It must have been in the mid 90's, probably on video tape.

Then I tried to figure out when the movie actually came out. Surprised to find out it was from '81.

Not all things age badly, but for the most part, time ain't kind....
