In case you haven't picked up on the common threads in our continuing exploration of the horror genre, let me spell one thing out for you in plain English:
The hours spent home alone while mom was at work were perfect for letting our fancies run free. For me, happiness could be found in my well worn copy of the Childcraft "Make and Do" Encyclopedia. Who wouldn't want their own Friday the 13th finger puppet collection or an authentic replica of Patricia Arquette's popsicle stick house from 'The Dream Warriors?
But not all little boys were interested in the arts - some boys preferred the Childcraft "How Things Work" Encyclopedia. Take, for instance, Paul and his Deadly Friend (1986).
