Wall of Terror — Horror Movies
Greenpoint, Brooklyn though small, is home to a few great little neighborhood gems, the most valuable of which is a video rental store called Photoplay.
Photoplay is a movie lovers paradise. The shop is small but cozy, rarely does it ever feel cramped and when it is crowded it seems more like you're at a movie themed apartment party. The selection is extensive and arranged by decade, director, and genre. They specialize in foreign and independent movies and the new releases are rarely all rented at once. Photoplay draws a younger crowd, the 20 to 30 somethings, and the staff (mostly good looking young men) is always friendly and knowledgeable. The owner Michael Sayers is almost always there and almost always talking with a customer in such a familiar way I think he knows every single person that walks through the door. Not only does Photoplay rent every movie you could ever think of, they also carry a wide selection of used movies for sale for the lowest cost you'll come by in New York. And last but not least, is one of my favorite features of Photoplay, their bin of 11x18 laminated classic movie posters.
One day as I was searching through the bin of posters I came across a few awesome old horror movie posters that were so cheesy and artistically captivating I thought what a great idea it would be to, over the course of time, buy up a large group of the different horror movie posters and create a Wall of Terror. Which is exactly what I am in the process of doing. Here are all of the posters I have on my hallway wall so far.
A few more classic horror movie posters that I bought in post card size, which after I accumulate enough of them I plan to run in a straight line from ceiling to floor by the window near my desk, are these:
What are little girls made of, made of? What are little girls made of? Blood and tears and all mortal fears. That's what little girls are made of.
I knew twenty years ago that you watching horror movies on tv would have lasting effect. Now look what you've gone and done Ollie.
