This man and his church are going to (movie) hell.

The Playtime made national new in October of 2008.

Most folks probably heard about it through message boards. What they didn't tell you is that they burned some of a print of PET SEMATARY. Thanks to the local alternative paper here in Jacksonville, the Folio Weekly, a reporter dished out the news that A) They didn't burn porn and B) It still exists.

That was at that time. However, I'm sure it's gone. What should be assured is that if you had fears that there may be something not porn in the stacks, were right.

PET SEMETARY was part of a early 90's dusk till dawn marathon at the Playtime. Other films were HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP, THE UNHOLY, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and HELLHOLE. Random as shit, ain't they? Which means they probably were just sitting around forever up there. I've probably mentioned elsewhere before, when the Playtime went legit in 1991, inbetween the porn and regular movies, they showed FORBIDDEN WORLD and THE GROOVE TUBE for about a week. Random again, eh? Probably just sitting around there.

From the titles mentioned in the local paper, they had some real porn. However, what should be kept in mind is that it wasn't until the 80's that the Playtime went hardcore. They played most of those Something Weird styled roughies, Ilsa films and the like during the 70's.

All around bullshit.
