Someone loves me very very much

I had to take half a day off with my wife today to deal with some things, and afterwards we did some shopping. I wound up with the following DVD's:

Killer Klowns from Outer Space
The Last House on the Left
Return of the Living Dead
WWII movie 3-pack including A Walk in the Sun, Gung Ho!, and Go For Broke!

Best Buy* has a sale going on, three for $20.00. The first three titles were from that deal. Other available titles were Amityville Horror, Burnt Offerings, Species and Child's Play, among others. Fun stuff for those who like their horror a little cheesy.

The WWII movies are the kinds of flicks I watch on AMC and TMT sometimes, starring folks like Van Johnson, Robert Mitchum and Dana Andrews. Sorry Victor, no Joe Don Baker.

Excalibur was a freak find at the Wal-Mart bargain bin. Classic.

* I hate Best Buy with a passion because they sell those crappy extended waranties and then weasle out of honoring them even though it breaks the heart of the little girl trying to get the service they promised. But sometimes you go where the deal is, and as long as you know that the bastards will screw you over given half a chance, well, forewarned is forearmed. Ya know?

I love the killer klown movies. I laugh at them. I'm so sorry but clowns just can't be scary.

I went by Walmart yesterday and came home with 10 sets of movies from the bargain bin, some with 4 to 5 horror movies. One was a collection of Roger Corman movies, had one of my Top 10 movies on it, and one of the 10 worst movies I have seen. The top 10 movie was the original version of "Little Shop of Horrors" which was the reason I actually bought that one, because I already have another DVD with Wasp Woman which is the one on the worst movie list. There was also one other movie on this disk that was on one of the other sets of movies that showcased Boris Karloff, but I thought the price of $5.88 was OK just for getting Little Shop of Horrors. I actually hit those bargain bins at Walmart fairly often. I usually go for really old stuff, like the 5 different Bob Hope movies that were there.

Tas, you're absolutely right! I love the crappy horror movies because they're funny, not scary. Troma flicks rock!

Tiger, I picked up a John Wayne collection at Wal-Mart a while back. Cowboy movies from the 30's. I'll have to look for the Corman collection. Thanks for the heads up.
