Horrors on VHS
A typically informed and entertaining piece on Eighties Horror Cinema by John L. Probert can be found here. I vaguely recall many of the (often quite terrible) movies mentioned. And, bizarrely enough, I remember buying Trancers on impulse. Even though the protagonist is named Jack Deth. Assault of the Killer Bimbos passed me by, however. The greatest triumph of Charles Band, the guy John is writing about, was Reanimator, which is a fun movie by any standard. Even Lovecraft would have found it amusing.
