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: Venom

Yesterday, I was randomly reminded of a old trailer from the eighties that I'd like to share with you. It's for the 1981 killer snake movie Venom.

“A kidnapping that became a murder that became a siege that became a death trap!” Now, that's what I call a movie!!! Seriously though, Klaus Kinski and Oliver Reed in the same production? I can only imagine the shenanigans that went on behind the scenes.

This movie came to mind while having a conversation about first memories of horror movie ads on television. I remember a TV spot version of this – one that started with the title card “what are you afraid of?” – being in heavy rotation at one point. I can still recall my mother exclaiming “oh, not this again!” every time it came on. She's not a fan of that stuff.
