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.

It Came From The Archives 28.1!

Way back in 2014, I did a series of posts (click here for the backstory) about the old Blockbuster rental sleeves I liberated from my old store when they started getting rid of all their old stock to make room for new releases. During the most recent clean-out at the old homestead, I found a whole bunch more. 

While I'm away at Fantasia, I'll be posting them all week. If you recall, Blockbuster's catalogue was broken into subcategories, everything from Super Action to Wild Comedies - yes those were actual categories, they had headers and everything. As far as I could tell Super meant guns and explosions, and Wild meant nudity. At least that's what I told the customers who used to ask me on a weekly basis.

Anyhoo, Horror was considered a subcategory of Action - blasphemous as that may seem - and there were two subcategories, Supernatural and Drive-In Horror - because clearly those are the only two types. Here below are some of the Supernatural horrors that were available at ye olde store. Like the previous ones, some unknown pre-Imdb entity wrote helpful blurbs on them.

Check back tomorrow when I move onto the Drive-In Horror titles. You may also want to check out the original five entries which you can find here
