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 XIX

Wow, my brain is overflowing with all the news that came out of Cannes this week, but more on that later. For now, here's what caught my eye this week.

Damn, That's Hot!

Some more promo posters for the second season of True Blood appeared online recently. Below, is Miss Paquin steamin' it up. Click here for the rest of the stills, courtesy of Icons Of Fright. The new season begins June 14th on HBO.

More Horrors From The French.

So, in addition to The Horde and The Pack, it looks like we have one more promising French horror flick coming this year. The trailer for Vertige aka High Lane appeared this week. There are no subtitles at this point, but I think you can get the jist. Vertige has been described as a cross between The Descent and Deliverance, so that alone makes me take notice. Well, that and it's French. Check it out below.
