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 73

Okay, things have settled down here enough for me to get back to doing these things on Sundays. Quite a bit has happened since the last DKTM, so let's get on with it.

Trailers Galore!

First up is a trailer for Mark Hartley's new documentary Machete Maidens Unleashed!

I saw Hartley's last doc Not Quite Hollywood at Midnight Madness a few years ago and it did not disappoint, so here's hoping his latest is just as entertaining and informative.

Next, is a trailer for Wes Craven's new slasher My Soul To Take.

Yeah, I know. Looks pretty generic, doesn't it? On the bright side, it could never be as bad as Cursed.

Here's a teaser for Hatchet 2.

I find all those chest-beating blurbs at the beginning a little bit of a turn-off. I was a huge fan of the first movie, but come on, it wasn't like, the wheel. I am interested to see how they ratchet up the gore though.

Another Bloody List.

My brother emailed this list the other day. It's's 20 Hottest Girls Of Horror.

Unfortunately, this list is flawed by some glaring omissions though. Where are Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Black Xmas, FD3), Jaime King (MBV3D, They Wait), Katheryn Winnick (Satan's Little Helper, Amusement) and Katherine Isabelle (FvsJ, Ginger Snaps) for starters? And no Milla? WTF??? I know she's first and foremost an action babe, but come on!!!

It would also have been nice if they only picked actresses who have been in more than one title. I wouldn't call Jessica Biel (as hot as she may be) a "girl of horror" anymore than I would Jessie Alba for being in the remake of The Eye.

Posters After Dark.

I didn't get around to posting these during the festival, but here they are now. Below, are the five limited edition prints by artist Justin Erickson commemorating some of the great titles that have played Toronto After Dark over its five-year existence. Which one is your fave?

Bloggers Unite!

I also wanted to throw up a link to a recent post from Row Three. Mike Rot reached out to his fellow bloggers (including yours truly) and asked for a Top Five of TIFF films to which we were most looking forward. Click here to check it out.
