I spent some time yesterday using my Personal Computer like a microfiche, searching newspaper archives of my hometown slice o' southeastern Connecticut for horror movie ads. I don't know why, really, but these are the kinds of things I do. It was terribly exciting, although not as exciting as using an actual microfiche. But then, what is? Maybe chewing a cinnamon-flavored gum, but I wouldn't know as I prefer mints.
Anyway, I found a whole bunch and ugh, there were horror movies everywhere back then. I know I saw most of these...in fact, that Poltergeist drive-in show was the one where I made my mom take me to the concession stand after the face-peeling scene because I was so sure I was gonna barf. And geeez, a two-theater theater showing only Friday the 13th and The Changeling?? The days, those sure were them.
