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.

Far be it from me to pay credence to a detestable Hallmark holiday, but the short film below is worth your time, no matter the colour of your heart. Unstrung is the winning film of the 2010 Film Racing Grand Prix, where teams are charged with creating a short film in one-hundred hours. The only parameters for this year's competition were the theme of 'forever' and the use of 'a photograph' as a prop.

Congrats to the people over at Meerkat Media for pulling this off so seamlessly. Even if they had access to the studio and all the puppets for the shoot, they still had to get all that beautiful coverage and edit it together. Having participated in three similar challenges myself, I know the Herculean undertaking this must have been.
