Retro Trailer: The Video Dead

Although I'm slightly embarrassed to admit this on a site filled with hardcore horror fanatics, Robert Scott's insanely cheesy 1987 zombie opus "The Video Dead" scared the living daylights out of me as a child. For whatever reason, this title has failed to find a home on DVD, though, for the time being, I'm quite content with the well-worn VHS copy I picked up for next to absolutely nothing at a local flea market last year. Still, it would be nice to have a copy that isn't accompanied by a hissing mono soundtrack and a handful of visually-distorted sequences. A guy can dream, right?

Todd has been a slave to the horror genre for as long as he can remember. After cutting his teeth on late-night Cinemax schlock and the low-budget offerings found on the classic USA program "Up All Night," our hero moved valiantly into the world of sleazy obscura, consuming the oddest films from around the world with the reckless abandon of a man without fear or reason. When he isn't sitting mindlessly in front of a television set, he can be found stuffing music, video games, and various literary scribblings into his already cluttered mindscape.
