    I checked in a couple other sections here, but could not find any info....

    I had this years ago, around the late 80s, and watched it all the time. It came from an Ames (RIP) store where there were many copies on VHS, in a huge clearance bin. I remember most of it clearly - scenes with Steve wearing a human spine around his neck, him talking about his fear of nuclear war, and great old trailers for Mr. Sardonicus and The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb. (Complete with catchy jingle!)

    I searched Google, YouTube, film sites, etc., and have found NOTHING on this tape. :( Anyone have ANY info?

    Thanks!

    Have you checked YouTube for "This is Horror"? According to IMDB: Portions of this documentary were repackaged and released as "This is Horror", released in 1989.

    THANKS, Bev - I'll check that right out! :)

    ....And yush, Danie, that shark grimace is quite the visage. I'm a huge fan of Guy Rolfe, though. Have you had a chance to see him in one one of his last and finest rolls, as the toymaker Gabriel Hartwicke, in the brilliant film 'Dolls' ? (The film is my favorite fairy tale, and one that everyone should at least give a shot.)

    Thanks again!

    No, I've not seen Dolls, but will be on the lookout for it. Is it a horror film as well? Sometimes they'll play those old ones around Halloween.

    Well, its labeled as 'horror', sure, but its really more of a true/'dark' fairy tale. The film has its flaws, but it was very lovingly made, and this trumps all. There are certain scenes that I still have a hard time getting through without getting choked-up, heh. :oops:

    Its on YouTube - just type in Dolls 1987. :)

    Enjoy!
