VHS Memories VI: Cornucopia Grab Bag

Here are some random VHS covers/ads.

Ah, the good old days when KTLA would devote their evenings to monster movies, Chuck Norris, Charles Bronson and Jean-Claude van Damme.  Good times.

Next up are three from the really early days of VHS.

Magnetic Video would eventually morph into CBS/FOX.

Ah, my favorite horror film from 1979.  Yes, even more than Alien.

This is a pretty damn good documentary which I believe is on the Blu Ray set that came out a few months ago.

Academy tended to release...Well, tons of really crappy low budget movies, most notably the Witchcraft series of soft-core horror movies.

This is a cheesy blend of Shocker (which came out the same year) and A Nightmare on Elm Street as Lance Henriksen tries to protect his family from a berserk Brion James as a serial killer who somehow manages to survive the electric chair.  Pretty much worth seeing only for the gore and Brion James doing his thing.

This is a neat little low budget horror movie from the early eighties.  I caught it on TCM a year or two ago and found it quite entertaining.

This is one of Lucio Fulci's more middling movies.  Some good ideas, some good gore but overall it's a bit of a mess.

Here's one from the "Thank god Orion is having financial troubles.  We won't get our asses sued into the next century now!" file.  No idea how they got away with using Robocop.

This was a neat little show that sadly had too short a run.

Here's an interesting action film from the late eighties out of Italy.  It's a cheesy mix of cannibals, religious cults and gore that has a nice role for Richard Lynch.

Here's one of my favorite tapes from my youth.  A compilation of horror clips and trailers hosted by horror host Zacherley.  Great tape if you can find it.

And to finish things off...Horror beyond all imagination.

Well, it makes me shiver to think about it!
