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 90

Here's ya SupaBowl Sunday DKTM people!

Do You Wanna Party?

My buddy Schwartz who runs Cartoon and Horror put up a fantastic post yesterday. There was a signing at Dark Delicacies in Burbank last week, for the newly released book The Complete History of the Return of the Living Dead, and he was there to chronicle the event.

Among those there were Clu Galagher (Burt of ROTLD, and muthafuckin Cat on a Cruise Ship), James Karen (of ROTLD 1 & 2), Brian Peck (Scuz, we all remember Scuz!) and Diane O'Bannon, the wife of the late, great Dan O'Bannon. Fortunately, Schwartz also took some video, which you can see below.

For Schwartz's full account of the event, click here.

American (Canadian) Mary.

One actress that I just do not get to see as much as I would like is Katherine Isabelle. It is upsetting to me that her career didn't take off after her seminal performance as the title character in Canadian modern horror staple Ginger Snaps. I'm not going to say she's fallen off the map, as a quick check of Imdb shows she is still working, but all I've seen her in the last few years are all too brief appearances in stuff like Uwe Boll's Rampage and the 30 Days of Night sequel, Dark Days. Well, here's hoping her leading role in the Soska sisters new feature American Mary changes all that. Here is the teaser trailer below.


Here below is the trailer for the new Indonesian horror Beach Creature, courtesy of Twitch.

Who knows if this is their response to Piranha 3D, but by golly is it... stimulating.

Any Peter Coyote sightings?

Not a single person from Part 4 or 5 was there. Has anyone actually seen either of those sequels?

Great post!
I can't believe I didn't go to the ROTLD signing. I've been reading up on people who were there and just smoldering in my jealousy.

The Cinematographer talks about some of the locations from the first film but there's an awesome "then and now" write-up at Horror's Hallowed Grounds HERE:

Definitely check it out.
