Retro Trailer: "Screamtime" (1983)

I was pretty excited when I discovered "Screamtime", a British horror anthology streaming on Netflix Instant Watch this past weekend. This was one of those movies I have always wanted to check out but never got around to watching until now. The anthology involves a wrap around story in which some young punks steal a bunch of videos from a Times Square video store and take them to a friends house to watch. Each one of the videos represents one of the shorts that are featured within the movie. The stories feature an old puppeteer and his evil puppet, a couple who move into their dream home and begin to see strange things, and an army of killer garden gnomes. This little gem is worth a look, especially for the interesting twist in the second story, which is by far the strongest of the three. Here's the trailer:



I like horror movies. That is all.
