When you go into a shop that sells movies, and you ask for a film that meets a certain criteria, you should be met with two responses:

  1. “Ahh yes, I can suggest a couple of titles that should fit that bill”.
  2. “No, but I can show you someone who works here that’s something of a horror expert, and they’ll be able to help you out”.

In my earlier reviewing days I walked into an HMV with just such a criteria that needed filling. I needed to get a horror film that fit the site’s weekly theme, and this theme was “horror films featuring a  villain that seduces someone/people”. When walking into the HMV and asking for a film that met this I was met with “I don’t know” followed by a silent, telepathic “because I know nothing about the products I am selling”. And this wasn’t just the once. There are numerous times I’ve asked for such advice, every one met with absolutely no knowledge of the section the staff are working in.
