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 Ripper

After posting about the VHS slasher Spine, I was reminded of some other eighties shot-on-video titles, including this one.

This one's a stinker folks, but at least, unlike Spine, it actually has some decent gore in it. However, far from what the trailer would have you believe, Tom Savini appears in this thing for like five minutes.

And how does Savini feel about his participation in this movie? Well, at a Weekend of Horrors in 1991, I witnessed him get down on his knees and apologize to anyone who had watched it. That should give you an idea of what you're dealing with. Oh well, we all make mistakes. At least it was a fairly harmless one.
