when I got my first car at 16 I used to go to a mom-and-pop shop every weekend and stock up on horror titles - the young guy who worked there used to set new stuff aside especially for me (we were both fledgling horror geeks). I fondly recall checking out Street Trash upon its initial video release which was just too cool - especially for the time.
Once they had a 100 question film quiz and whomever got the most correct answers got free rentals for a year - can you guess who won that bad boy?
I miss those days.
Here for awhile we did have a cool indy comic shop which carried video rentals and the owner
pretty much let me pick his rental catalog because he thought I had good taste. (Ha! )
That was great while it lasted until the place changed owners and the new ones were a tad religious - they sold all the adult comics and gore films on the cheap just to get rid of them and that was that. Did manage to get most of those early Anchor Bay Argento releases for a few bucks a pop so at least there was that. LOL
edit - what really bummed me out was when our drive-in closed in 2000. Uber-sad.
