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 78

Two more weeks until the big day! Here's some weekly tidbits for your goodie bag as we all wait for All Hallow's Eve.

31st, Get Here Aleady!

Speaking of Halloween, we're all awaiting it for an additional reason this year. It is the day that AMC's The Walking Dead is finally unleashed on us all. Here below is an astonishing seventeen-minute making of that was recently released online.

We're getting more of a sense of how Darabont and company have tinkered with some things now. I'm interested to see how the Dixon brothers (played by Michael Rooker & Norman Reedus) figure into things. There are also lots of shots of the characters in some kind of mall complex. An ode to Dawn of the Dead perhaps? Regardless, it can't get here fast enough.

The Halloween Spirit.

This new store opened up by place called Spirit Halloween. Apparently, it's a big chain, but it's the first I've heard of it. Anyway, they've got all kinds of cool stuff in there, including six-foot animatronics of your favourite movie baddies.

Only three hundred bones each! Soooo tempting. Here's a shot of their zombie babies display.

And I couldn't leave without picking something up, so now this little guy is keeping a watchful eye on my front door.

Yes, Please.

Killerfilm was kind enough to add another film to my radar a few days ago. Jon had the perfect description for Parasitic when he called it 'boob-tastic'.

Spirit Hallowe'en? Are you talking about the former Queenston dealership on Trafalgar, Jay? Did it shut down?

You know what I like about neo-halloween costume craze? The chicks who dress up like sluts, wooof! It's all innnocent, yeah.

Yep, that's the one.

Agreed, now that I'm too old for trick r treating, that has become my new fave things about Halloween, as well.
