Do You Know Which Horror Movies Jerry Had in His VHS Collection On “Seinfeld”?

A totally useless fun fact to dazzle your friends with!

There’s long been a myth circulating around the internet that every single episode of “Seinfeld” includes some kind of reference to Superman. This is not actually true, but surely the myth began when viewers noticed that a Superman statue proudly displayed in Jerry’s apartment is visible in many episodes of the show.

Also frequently visible in Jerry’s apartment? His small collection of VHS tapes, which eagle-eyed viewers have closely examined. I’ve always felt that you can learn a lot about a person based on his/her movie collection, and we can glean from the fictional Jerry Seinfeld’s VHS collection that he does at least have a passing interest in horror films.

So which horror films were in Jerry’s bitchin’ tape collection in the ’90s?

If you take a real close look at the VHS shelf in Jerry’s apartment, you’ll spot films such as Goodfellas, The Hunt for Red October, True Colors and The Crying Game. But horror fans may earn a whole lot of respect for Jerry when they notice that among them are the VHS tapes for Arachnophobia and Child’s Play 2!

Hey, I said it was useless. But I bet you’re now picturing Jerry and Kramer sitting back on the couch and watching Child’s Play 2. And I hope you’re smiling at the thought.

On a related note, Jerry’s Child’s Play 2 VHS tape came up during The Movie Crypt’s recent discussion with Don Mancini, the creator of Chucky!

    I remember seeing Child’s Play 2 but I never noticed Arachnophobia.

  • Useless, yes. Nonetheless, it’s an entertaining fact to use in a game of trivia. :p

      Sometimes with VHS you’d buy yourself one and get one as a gift from a friend as well. Happened to me with the first X-Men movie.

    What kind of person would only have the third Back to the Future?
