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 XXI

I got a little too much sun today, so I'll make this brief before I go take a nap before hockey.

More Michael?!

A story broke over at this week about some lost footage from John Carpenter's original Halloween. It sounds like the majority of it is b-roll and unusuable takes, but it's all stuff any hardcore fan would love to see. And it looks like there's a LOT of it.

Now, I have no desire to buy yet ANOTHER Halloween Edition on DVD, but if they get all this stuff together (along with maybe some commentary by Carpenter himself), then I think it would be worthwhile. I mean, what else am I going to do? Watch H2? Not likely. Click here for the full story as well as information about how to let current Halloween currator Malek Akkad (son of the late Moustapha) know you want to see this stuff.

No Laughing Matter.

A short that I saw a few years ago called Headshot popped up on Vimeo recently. Thanks be to Twitch for pointing it out. This was a big hit with the crowd I saw it with and has several laugh out loud moments. Here it is below.

This Shit Never Gets Old.

Another promo video for Yoshihiro Nishimura's (the mastermind behind last year's Tokyo Gore Police) newest blood opera Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl has appeared online. This one seems to be expanding on the funny little wristcutting commercial within TGP. I'm pretty sure this one is locked in for at least one of the upcoming festivals in my area, so I better have my slicker at the ready. Check it out below.

Hey, Jay --

Glad you liked Head Shot. I just posted a new web series online called My Pal Satan. Check it out if you get a chance.
