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: Evilspeak

This week's trailer is for the 1981 Clint Howard flick Evilspeak.

I watched this last weekend by way of a crusty VHS tape I got from The Vault many moons ago. While Evilspeak does take a very long time to get going - it's a full thirty minutes before a computer is even mentioned - there is a lot to love here. You've got Clint Howard, who is so young in this that he actually looks half-normal, pre-Tron computer graphics, a surprising amount of gore and perhaps the most unexpected finish to a shower scene ever recorded on film. Plus, I give extra points to any movie that has a line, like “you guys broke my catapult!”
