35. Deranged (1987)
Dir: Chuck Vincent
USA

Not to be confused with DERANGED from 1974 (the above title), which was inspired by Ed Gein. This DERANGED is a little-known horror/thriller dealing with paranoia and is clearly inspired by Roman Polanski's REPULSION.

41. Drácula (1931)
Dir: George Melford

The Spanish Dracula. Shot at the same time and using the same sets as the Tod Browning/Bela Lugosi film. As a whole, I think it's actually superior to the American film.

All of these look great, I wish there was a place around here that rented movies like this. Net Flixx is destroying shit.

Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Sep 3 21:01
Thanks Lex! I agree, first it was Blockbuster Video and Hollywood Video that pretty much destroyed the "Mom & Pop" independent video stores. Then Net Flix and Red Box came along and finished them off. Yeah, Net Flix has a huge selection, but I miss going to indie video stores and browsing and "discovering" movies. Its nostalgic for me too because when I first started watching and collecting horror and cult films on VHS and Beta back in the '80s, I loved going to the "Mom & Pop" stores and perusing the dusty shelves in the horror section, filled with over-sized VHS boxes adorned with lurid artwork. There was no internet to go to for reviews of these movies. Here in the USA, there was only Fangoria, Gorezone, Video Watchdog and a handful of other mags and fanzines; and they couldn't cover everything, so there was a certain mystery about it back then. You'd rent or buy a movie based on the cover art, tagline, synopsis and/or if you recognized a name in the credits (i.e. Lucio Fulci, Tom Savini, etc.). Sometimes you'd get crap and sometimes you'd end up with a real gem but that was what made it fun!

I know! I was born in the early 80s so I don't have the same memories of perusing as you do, not at Mom and Pop shops, but even run of the mill rental places were fun. I'd go and spend hours just looking at cheesy horror covers with a few bucks in my pocket. Everything is so automatic and instant and sterile now- there is none of the browsing for minutes or hours, talking to the store hours, or the musty smells of old VHS boxes (and likewise, the cheap candy at the front). The old ways are dying out, and not for the better, always. Oh well. At least there will always be comic book stores (I hope) and antique stores to browse through. I think VHS will make a resurgence, though, sort of like how Vinyl is mostly dead but in larger cities you can find a lot of stores that specialize in selling only records and browse through the stacks. So don't despair totally.
