In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Don't Kill The Messenger IV

Hey everyone. I don't have a lot of time, I'll be off to partake in some Pigskin Christmas festivities shortly, but here are a few items from the week. Have a good day today guys, whatever you decide to do with it.

Children Of The Snow?

Mermaid Heather alerted me to a trailer for this new flick from the UK called The Children. At first glance, I thought this might be the Who Can Kill A Child? remake I’d been hearing rumblings about, but a quick search afterward revealed that project is actually called In The Playground. No, The Children looks to be a completely different beast and a tantalizingly nasty one at that. The Brits seem to be on a pretty good roll here (with titles like Broken & Eden Lake) and certainly look like they’ve picked up the gauntlet thrown down by the French in regards to balls-to-the-wall horror. I’ll be keeping my eye on this, for sure. Check the trailer below.

Fear Alma… Again.

The F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin demo came out over the Playstation Network recently and I was quick to give it a whirl. Needless to say, it’s pretty badass. The freakishly bizarre visuals are still prevalent and Sadako-doppleganger Alma seems even more pissed, if that’s possible. The demo is pretty expansive and (as I was gleefully hoping for) you even get to step into a mech for a bit and cut through enemies like buttah. I will definitely be playing this when it comes out Feb 10th. I’m sad to say that Resistance 2 was a decidedly disappointing affair and I want to go into my next two HUGE video game experiences (Killzone 2 and Resident Evil 5) on a high note. I believe F.E.A.R. 2 will fill that need quite nicely. For some in-game demo footage, watch the vid below.

Monkey Trouble

This is awesome.

You know it's funny. I swear I watched the trailer for The Children here on your blog. After a quick look through your latest posts, I couldn't find it. So it surprised me when I read that it came to your attention on my blog. Maybe I'm losing it!
