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.

Meta Video!

This week's intro is for the company International Video Entertainment aka IVE.

By the time IVE was founded in 1986 by Noel C. Bloom, it already had a storied history, having previously been USA Home Video, which was responsible for, among other things, bringing the controversial Silent Night, Deadly Night to home video.

IVE released such genre titles as Angel Heart, Deep Star Six, Jacob's Ladder and also Jeff Lieberman's fifth feature Remote Control, the VHS of which the above intro was pulled. As a bonus, I have included the two other intros from the first scene when it goes all film within a film within a film!

In the early nineties, IVE became Live Home Video before being rebranded as Artisan Entertainment in 1998. Then a few years later, it was swallowed up by Lionsgate.
