Two Cool Reader Submitted Tidbits...

The first comes courtesy of a reader by the name of Dustin Sain, who noticed something pretty interesting about the posters for Elm Street : Dream Warriors and Zombie 3. Don't know if anyone else has ever noticed this before, but it's the first time it's ever been called to my attention. Note the eyes on both of the posters.





Being that Dream Warriors came first, it looks like the makers of the Zombie 3 poster decided to be lazy and snatch Freddy's eyes for their own poster. Dustin says he overlayed them in Photoshop and they are in fact exactly the same, with the only difference between a slight tweaking of Fred's right eye by the Zombie 3 people. In fact it looks to me like they might have even taken Freddy's whole upper face, and not just the eyes. Either way, it's an interesting little observation.

I mentioned the other day how work is chewing up all my blogging time and this next thing I was sent by a reader who goes by the name Alistair Legrand is probably gonna be chewing up even more blogging time for me. Knowing that i'm a huge fan of horror VHS, Alistair stumbled upon and sent me perhaps the biggest horror VHS collection/collector out there, and it's all documented on YouTube. This guy's channel is full of videos of him going through his entire massive horror VHS collection, as well as showing off his horror toys and even visiting the filming locations of movies like the Friday The 13th's and The Blair Witch Project. Warning : this channel is highly addicting, especially if you're a horror VHS aficianado, so proceed with caution! This dude's passion for horror is infectious.

Thank you Dustin and thank you Alistair. If any of you guys out there ever find cool little things like these guys did, please send 'em my way!
