Nightmares in the Horror Aisle: Exploring the Movie Art That Traumatized You as a Child

That's right, you never had to see the movies or even the trailers: the promotional art was enough. Mine was the one-sheet for A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge, which first loomed over me at Tara Street DART station in 1986 and is still creepy as hell nearly 30 years later. I've got to say, in general I avoided the horror section in the video store at all costs, so it's funny that now I lap this shit up [c/o MetaFilter, with way more discussion about others' similar neuroses]. #link
