Seattle's own non-profit video archive, Scarecrow Video, is a movie-lovers mecca with more individual titles available to rent than anywhere in the world! Their maniacally knowledgeable staff love October most of all, partly because of the annual celebration Video Store Day (coming Saturday October 21), but mostly because it is that time of year when horror movies—every video store clerk's favorite genre—reign supreme! So we are renaming the tenth month Scarecrowber and celebrating with some of the Scarecrow staff's hand-picked favorite horror films!
