Don't Go in the House - If you do... then don't say we didn't warn you.

Video Nasties taught us a lot of things to "don't" do but some couldn't resist looking in the basement, riding on the late night trains and some were tempted to open the window despite not really knowing which window they were supposed to be wary of. In 1979 the temptation to do what shouldnā€™t be done arose again with Don't Go in the House, a fairl... Click to read more "Don't Go in the House"

Zombie - When the earth spits out the dead, they will rise to suck the blood of the living!

In 1979, horror director Lucio Fulci droppped Zombie.

Romero's Dawn of the Dead which was renamed Zombi when released in Italy. To further confuse the issue th... Click to read more "Zombie"
