I've Hit The Jackpot!
The horror jackpot, that is. At a yard sale this weekend, my eyes did spy a big ol' box full of VHS tapes with a sign on it that said "Movies: 25 cents Each Or $10 for whole box." Normally that wouldn't be quite such a huge deal, BUT upon close inspection of the box's contents, I spotted quite a few horror titles that I hadn't seen in person in quite a few years. Judging by the stickers and stuff all over the cases, I suspect these were a case of a closed-down video store's stock being liquidated. So yes, I may now be the proud new owner of Batman and Robin and a second copy of Titanic, but I also scored, to name just a few, such titles as New Year's Evil, The House On Sorority Row, The Prowler, Blood Beach, Ruby, Children of the Corn 2, The Nesting, and Child of Glass. CHILD OF GLASS, people! Do you know how hard it is to find a copy of that? Apparently the people running this yard sale don't, or they wouldn't have been practically giving it away. So the upshot of all these words you're reading is that I now have plenty of material to keep this blog going forever and ever. Expect a recap as soon as I can get over my excitement long enough to figure out which movie to watch first.
