There could not be a more impressive and wonderful video store than Scarecrow. I read they’ve collected about 120,000 titles but even a fat figure like that seems low when you see their mammoth, wide-ranging selection. I hate to think of this store ever closing so when the owners announced they were struggling, I started going more regularly. First for their 2-for-1 Wednesday rentals, then for pub trivia (and drinks), and lately for some screenings (and drinks). Also, the employees are THE BEST. They’re super friendly and freakishly skilled at finding movies based off of vague descriptions. I will miss Scarecrow terribly when we leave Seattle.
I almost passed out from joy when I first checked out the horror section. Sub-categories include stalkers, zombies, and mad scientists.
VHS box art by lots of neat cartoonists. And a list of messed up horror movies in the Psychotronic room.
Movies are arranged by director and by country. Perfect.
Me ‘n’ Kristy with Lloyd Kaufman, Toxie, Asta Paredes, and Clay von Carlowitz from Return to Nuke Em High. Squee!
