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 XXXIX

I've got to pick up someone at the airport in a few hours, so I'll keep things short today.

Scream King.

A few weeks back, I posted about how disappointed I was that James Gunn wasn't returning for the second season of Scream Queens. Well, this week I found out that the show is going to be hosted by actress Jaime King, a rising SQ in her own rite, having starred in The Tripper, They Wait, My Bloody Valentine 3-D and the upcoming Mother's Day remake. Gunn's direct replacement is director Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs) and King is filling in for previous host Shawnee Smith. This is quite a shake-up, but with King in there, I'm still fully onboard. Scream Queens' second season is slated to start in early 2010.

Frozen in February.

Earlier this week, Bloody Disgusting reported that Adam Green's (Hatchet) new flick Frozen has just nabbed a release date of February 5, 2010. I've been keeping an eye on this thriller, about skiers stranded on a malfunctioning chair lift and am looking forward to how Green handles the long stretches of dialogue that will inevitably ensue from this kind of scenario. Shawn Ashmore, Emma Bell and Kevin Zegers star. There is no trailer to be found yet, but you can be sure I'll put it up here when it surfaces.

Bits and Bobs.

I saw a lot of cool things pop up on Digg this week, so I just wanted to throw them up here for those who don't follow THS's Twitter feed. The first is a Giger Alien made of scrap metal, the second is Thai poster for Evil Dead 2 and the third is artist Alex Pardee's rendering of the movie Basket Case.
