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.

Horror Fans!

Recently, my buddy Michael Schwartz posted the first nine minutes of his 2006 documentary short Horror Fans online. It features footage taken from various interviews and events in Toronto, Los Angeles & New Jersey. It premiered at the 2007 Phoenix International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival (winning best doc) and later played the Eerie Horror Film Festival & Dam Short Film Festival, among others. Check it out below, let him know what you think and maybe we can convince him to post the rest.

"Horror Fans is a short, comedic documentary that examines the fandom surrounding horror films and why so many people are attracted to such a dark genre. From horror conventions to midnight screenings, fans and celebrities recollect their first encounters with the genre and what it is about the macabre that continues to inspire them to this day."
