Blockbuster - Fresno, CA Complaint - Hiding pornography in the horror film section
DEERFIELD, ILLINOIS -- I had begged my Blockbuster, well not begged. Rather slyly kept hinting that they need a horror film section.
So they get one, the first 3 films I rent were no less than horror porn. With rape scenes, I'm serious. I can barely belive it myself, what with their family friendly whatever.
I don't want to talk about it, because then it'll be a whole "Well we told you horror films were bad", and then me saying "rape pornography with a crappy horror themed storyline, is NOT a horror film!" Since, I'm sure those of you who have complained here know. It seems a requirement to be hired at Blockbuster, is to have a IQ barely above that of a retarded child. So trying to explain this to them, would be a complete waste of time.
If Blockbuster wants to rent pornography, they should have a back area for it. They should not try to hide it in the drama section, and horror section of their stores. They're not kidding anyone, it's known their family friendly image is a sham.
They are a company that has consistantly promoted mysogynistic, woman-hating, and woman-devaluing media. This last stunt with the horror-porn is it. I'm not about to go to a store, who thinks I'm so stupid as to belive a porno movie with a horror tint to it, is a horror film. Apperantly I guess the guy who runs Blockbuster and decides what films they provide is retarded to. "Duh, I didn't realize it was porn me sorry. Me didn't know"
Amazing, how we as Americans, are giving our jobs to the most ignorant, and stupid people our country offers. It's not that amazing we're outsourcing now, if you think about it this way. It's virtually impossible to get a job these days, unless you act like a mindless zombie.
As well as for Blockbuster to think it's justifiable to sell videos that depict woman violence. Then claim well horror films depict violence towards women. Horror is the only genre that shows women being strong and defending themselves, realistically. Yet people just mindlessly belive, that mainstream films like Scream and well, anything by Wes Craven, are representative of the entire genre. That's why Blockbuster probaly feels they can sneak these "gems" in there, and nobody will be the wiser.
