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 85.

Concentrated Zombie Killin'

YouTube user Landstrider compiled a video of the zombie deaths from the first season of AMC's The Walking Dead. Obviously, if you haven't seen the show yet, you shouldn't watch this, but for everyone else, this will be a stroll down a very bloody memory lane. Here it is below.

Soldier Indeed.

My buddy Rob Mitchell is a very hard working fellow. With his partner Sheleigh, they have spent the last few years documenting countless media events from the Big Smoke. He has of ben of great help to me, as his videos have augmented several of my past festival reviews. Well, now Mitchell has started up his own blog entitled Soldier of Cinema. To sum up his introductory post, he needed a place to fit all this content he had built up and didn't have a place to showcase it. SoC has been up for about a week and already has two interviews posted - one with veteran actor William Forsythe and one with independent filmmaker Lucas McNelly. Click here to check it out.

Rollin, Rollin, Rollin...

Here's a taste of a cool gallery of Jean Rollin poster art I came across over at Video Junkie.

The Grapes Of Death. I LOVE IT!

This one looks familiar, heyyyyy wait a second...

Some of these bring back a lot of memories. Back when local specialty cable horror channel SCREAM was still such - and not its currently watered-down incarnation DUSK - they used to do a Friday-or-Saturday night Rollin double bill. Who could forget the interchangable storylines, nubile naked nymphs and long (and I mean looooong) shots of beautiful countryside landscapes? For the full gallery, click here.

I think Jean Rollin died this weekend at the age of 72.

Shit really? I must have missed that news in my flu-induced coma this weekend. I didn't intend that post to be a memoriam, but there you go.
