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.

R.I.P. Joel Schumacher 1939-2020

I was saddened to hear about the passing of director Joel Schumacher. He was 80. He had a storied career that spanned several decades and included titles like Falling Down, A Time To Kill and a pair of Batman movies.

To me though, he'll always be the man who brought us 1987's The Lost Boys. It still remains one of the greatest eighties time capsules to this day, with its soundtrack being the first CD I ever bought.

It replaced my cassette tape.

I'm happy I was able to see Schumacher twice in person at his TIFF screenings of Tigerland and Phone Booth, in 2000 and 2002 respectively. Rest in peace, good sir.
