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 28.4!

So I mentioned before, when it came to movies (excluding docs and the kids section which was its own separate ring of hell in the corner by the beanbag chairs) Blockbuster only saw the world in three colours - Drama, Comedy & Action. Inexplicably, Horror & Sci-Fi were listed as a subcategory of the latter. When I first started working there (it was a Major Video that later became a Cockbuster) these sections were massive, but they sadly got pared down as time went on. 

Here below are the inserts from the Sci-Fi section. I'm sure you''ll notice that several of these could've been just as easily been in the Horror section, as well.

Check back tomorrow when I regale you with one of BBV's more boneheaded practices (and there were many).
