If you consider yourself a videovore, a BETA collecting junkie, or even just a diehard fan of cult cinema, then there is no doubt you know the name David Prior. The writer-director has blessed the underground film scene with his wildly inventive work for three decades, and many of the movies he released during the VHS boom of the 1980’s have now become beloved cult classics.

The autumn wind howls like a distant wolf. The air turns not just cold, but a little bit mean. Winter lurks inward with shorter days and ruthless nights.
It may seem like a ghost town over here at Tavern of Terror, but trust me when I say that we have incredible things in the works – including interviews, contests, reviews, giveaways and some solid new articles.
