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.

A Fond Farewell.

Since the wall space available to me is going to be severely depleted in my new living quarters, I decided to take some video of the ones that have served me well for the last number of years. Pardon the shadows and reflections, I filmed off the cuff while I was packing.

Umbrella Wants You!

I got an email this week, linking me to an article on about a new Resident Evil game in the works called Operation: Raccoon City.

It is set during the original 1998 outbreak, but the unique thing is that this time, you are actually part of the group trying to cover things up! Here's some info from the site.

"Operation Raccoon City is a team-based shooter allowing four members of the USS team to destroy all evidence of the ongoing outbreak. Along with slaying the zombies, you're looking to kill pretty much every survivor possible. The gameplay is described as 'dirty', and the series will feel much darker than it has up to this point. The game features three factions that Capcom has stated make up a three-corner conflict. The other two factions are the US Spec Ops, who are there to repel the USS, and the bio-organic weapon monsters (BOWs) created by Umbrella. The USS team is made up of the following characters: Vector, Beltway, Bertha, and Spectre. Depending on which character you choose, the responsibilities that you're asked to do within your team will variate."

This sounds really interesting and since Operation: Raccoon City is set during the events of RE2 and RE3, it is very possible we may encounter some familiar faces, as well.

Cambridge Goes Silent.

As I mentioned before, my buddy Schwartz is back from Lalaland and Cartoon and Horror is up and running again. His return post has some shots he took while on the set of Silent Hill 2 - aka Revelation 3D - which is currently filming near his house.

The old-timey main street of Cambridge, Ontario is doubling for Silent Hill this time around and as you can see has been coated in its familiar dressings of ash and snow. For the rest of Schwartz's post, click here.

Okay, that's all for now. The move happens next weekend, so the next DKTM won't likely be until April 10th. See you then!

Welcome To Fucktown!

A homeless transient (Rutger Hauer) decides to clean up the streets of a crime-ridden city with the help of his trusty firearm.

There is so much great stuff in this movie; it is hard for me to find a place to start. I’m so happy for director Jason Eisener. Forget the fact he’s Canadian, and that he “gets” it, I think it’s grand that he was able to parlay a hundred-dollar short, made off the cuff for a contest four years ago, into a full feature film. And a solid one at that!

I also applaud him for staying in Nova Scotia to shoot it, therefore giving him the freedom to nurture his vision. There have been several movies of late that have gone for that old vintage 42nd Street feel, but Hobo is by far the most authentic to date. It goes way further than Machete dared to and is truer to that era than even Grindhouse. Now, I love Grindhouse (well, most of it anyway) but a lot of the time it was referencing those movies, whereas Hobo actually exists in that universe. Like Ti West’s House of the Devil, it simply IS one of those films. Hobo is retro down to its very core, featuring such things as VHS tapes, arcade machines and old Canadian money. And I haven’t even mentioned the aesthetic yet. Everything down to the film grain and shot set-ups were all perfectly rendered and the score mixed so well with the borrowed tracks that it was almost impossible to tell them apart.

I also liked all the homegrown talent that kept popping up. Above, you may recognize Rob Wells, Ricky from The Trailer Park Boys. Brian Downey, who played Stanley Tweedle in the cult sci-fi show Lexx – coincidentally Downey and Hauer previously shared screen time together in Lexx: Eating Pattern – dazzles as the big bad Drake and a certain local television personality makes a cameo, as well. Hobo offers a parade of colourful characters, my favourite being a pair of mysterious assassins known only as The Plague.

As you can see, the costumes – painstakingly manufactured by Jason Johnson – are jaw-droppingly awesome and all I could think to myself was ‘man, I was I could weld because that would make one killer Halloween costume!’ Ultimately, the glue that holds everything together is Rutger Hauer. By playing the role completely straight, he became the sanest man in the asylum. A tall order and the only way it could’ve worked.

Then there is the gore. There are so many inventive moments that I’ll leave them for you to discover, but here’s an image that pretty much gives you an idea of what to expect.

That lovely lady is bathing in the blood spewing up from a decapitated head, people. God, I love the arts!

Eisener and some of the cast were at the screening I attended and they were humbled by the positive reception. He rhymed off his many influences like Death Wish III, Class of 1984, Vice Squad and Street Trash, all of which were clearly evident within his flick. He also praised his producer Niv Fichman for letting him make a film with no rules. When asked what was next for him, he stated--

“I’d like to make a martial arts movie because there really haven’t been many made in Canada. Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter and Harry Knuckles are the only ones I can think of. So, now there will hopefully be three.”

I hope Hobo With A Shotgun does well, but I understand its audience is fairly limited. I don’t where and in what form it will play in the States, as I’m sure the MPAA will have a field day. Hobo is worth supporting though, as it is a sincere showcase of a by-gone era that fully delivers on the decadent promises of its trailer.

Below, just for shits and giggles, is Jason Eisener’s fantastic 2008 short, Treevenge.

Giallo Fever

My year-and-a-half long quest to see Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani's 2009 film Amer on the big screen finally came to an end last Thursday.

Three sensuous moments in the life of Ana are detailed in this homage to the giallo.

As you could've guessed from its trailer, Amer is indeed a pitch-perfect love letter to the Italian filmmakers of yore. For this reason, I enjoyed it very much, but it wasn't a home run for me. The visuals are gorgeous, the sound design cracks and the music choices are spectacular, but I think I was expecting more of a conventional narrative. Amer is heavily stylized to the point where story – at least in its proper sense – largely falls by the wayside. That's not necessarily a bad thing, I just had to say, 'oh, so we're not getting a movie movie here, but a celebration of form, all right, that's cool too.'

Amer starts out very strong, with a generous helping of Suspiria that sucked me in immediately. Unfortunately, where you really need a film to grab you is the middle, and this was Amer's weakest part. It wasn't as interesting as the parts before or after it, which caused the filmmaking style to then become distracting. However, when the third act hit, the film became more like what I had originally envisioned with Ana being luridly filmed the way guys like Sergio Martino used to do it – the camera often seemed to be having sex with the subjects it was capturing – moving about a house ripped right out of Deep Red.

Apart from the striking aesthetics, I think the thing I was most impressed with was the economy of speech, as there were very few words spoken. In fact, I'd be surprised if there were more than thirty lines of dialogue in the entire film. I think this worked not only because there was little story to convey, but also the performances put forth by the trio of actresses (Cassandra Forêt, Charlotte Eugène Guibeaud & Marie Bos) gave you all the information you needed.

On a visceral level, Amer is a veritable feast, but anyone looking for a more traditional horror movie may be left with hunger pangs.

Don't Kill The Messenger 96

Hey folks. I hope your St. Pats hangover has finally subsided. In the meantime, here's some horror tidbits from the week at large.

Heed This Warning.

Here's a cool sign I saw over on The Spooky Vegan's Tumblr.

Not that I would ever find myself driving through Nebraska, but that's not a sight I would want to see, especially if my gas gauge was standing at E.

R.I.P. Michael Gough 1917-2011.

I was sad to hear about the passing of Michael Gough this week. The British actor who appeared in over a hundred films died in London at the age of 93. He was perhaps best known for his role as Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworth in the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Batman movies. I, however, remember first seeing him as Dr. Storm in the 1973 flick Horror Hospital. It used to play on First Choice all the time when I was a kid and you can imagine that a Rolls Royce decked out with blades that decapitated you as it drove by stuck in my ten-year-old brain.

Please Sir, May I Have Some More?

The new trailer for Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver popped up on Twitch this week. The pseudo-sequel to 2008's Tokyo Gore Police looks to serve up more of the same sinewy goodness.

You either love this stuff or you hate it. I am firmly planted in the camp of the former. I mean, it's Eihi Shiina with a FRICKIN' CHAINSAW SWORD for fuck's sake!!!

The Woman With Two Faces.

Ne te retoune pas (Don’t Look Back), a thriller that caught my eye when it played Cannes in 2009 recently showed up at Eyesore.

A film that features both Sophie Marceau and Monica Bellucci?! You don't have to twist my arm.

Jeanne (Sophie Marceau) is a writer whose surroundings suddenly begin to change. It starts with something as simple as a misplaced piece of furniture, but rapidly escalates from there. Her husband, her kids and then finally, herself morph into completely different people and no one seems aware of it, except her. Now, trapped in an unfamiliar body (Monica Bellucci), she struggles to figure out the cause.

After watching Don’t Look Back, I learned that director Marina de Van also made In My Skin, a 2002 film I found extremely fascinating. It makes so much sense though, as a lot of the same themes involving body manipulation reappear. The first hour of this film is excellent. Marceau does an excellent job of reacting to her ever-shifting environment and I was fully invested. However, it was when the physical changes started happening that this film started freaking me the fuck out. Using visual effects, Marceau is transformed piece-by-piece into Bellucci.

This really messed me up, as my brain kept rejecting what I was seeing. I literally had to pause the film for a breather at one point. All I know is that I was relieved when the change was complete and looking at the full-Bellucci. It's some really awesome CG work though. If the folks over at Disney had gotten these guys for the eighties Jeff Bridges bits in Tron: Legacy, well… it would’ve been less creepy anyway. There is also some great stuff towards the end involving forced perspective similar to Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine. Bellucci was equal to Marceau in the task and put in another solid performance. I couldn’t help but think in the back of my mind ‘so, you’ve turned into Monica Bellucci, the woman with perhaps the best genes on the entire planet, is that really such a bad thing?’

Alas, the almost two-hour running time could not sustain its mystery and Don’t Look Back quickly ran out of steam in the third act. There were several chunks that reminded me of Black Swan and Michael Haneke’s Hidden, but it ultimately wasn't as good as either. However, it is still Bellucci frantically running around equally attractive European locales, so I’m not going to complain too much. It seems every time I see her in a substantial role, she’s either being horribly abused or in some other kind of intense situation. I should really try and seek out some of her lighter fare. It'd be easier on the nerves.

Despite its underwhelming conclusion, Don’t Look Back decidedly won me over with its pair of fantastic actresses, beautiful backdrops and impressive tech.

It Came From The Archives 10!

You know, it's a real shame. Being that I am moving in a few weeks, I've been taking the opportunity to do some purging. Unfortunately, this means chucking out boxes and boxes of disused VHS. It kind of sucks, as you spend all this time dubbing various TV shows and movies only to pitch them fifteen years down the road because they're practically useless. I guess it's the way of things. However, I am also transferring some of the more interesting stuff to DVD.

That's a promo tape schlepping videos that released in April 1991. Retailers would generally get monthly magazines - of which I have a ton, or at least the horror pages - and videos from distributors selling their upcoming goods.

Which brings me to this month's archive item. I've got some freshly uploaded videos for you. Check out the track list underneath the embedded video.

Child's Play 2 0:12
Buried Alive 3:05
The Punisher 5:10
Bride of Re-Animator 7:14
Disturbed 8:52

You may have noticed from the coverbox picture that the tape had more trailers on it, but I sadly taped over them with the ones featured below.

This second video is a collection of trailers from various Major Video in-store promo reels, taken from tapes that ran on a loop. I left out the film montages set to the tune of Jackie Wilson's "Lifting Me Higher" that used to play endlessly.

Darkman 0:00
Mr. Frost 1:13
Flatliners 2:22
Puppet Master II 3:40
Tremors 5:30
Whispers 7:10
Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III 9:10

Don't Kill The Messenger 95

Hello all, got some cool stuff for you today to get you out of that funk of losing an hour's sleep last night.

It's All About Preparation.

If you're like me, you spend a chunk of every day - especially if you are stuck behind a desk like I am for the old nine to - wondering about your reaction to a sudden zombie apocalypse. You may have even written out a list of supplies and an escape route, not that I have it tucked away in my desk under the paper clips or anything. Anyhoo, my buddy Darryl forwarded me this handy survival sheet from for emergencies.

For shits and giggles, here's mine;

Last words: "I'm too old for this shit!" (explosion from palmed grenade)
Sidekick: My trusty samurai sword. Hey, it works for Michonne!
Clothing (Upper): My Video Dead T-shirt, over some sort of thin Kevlar vest.
Clothing (Lower): Something long and durable, with lots of pockets.
Main Weapon: MP5, with silencer & flashlight attachment.
Secondary Weapon: Sawed-off shotgun, to keep handy for close encounters of the undead kind.
Inventory: Darn, I wish I had my list...
Battle Anthem: Oh, you know there would be a mix tape, but for now I'll go with Battle Without Honor or Humanity by Tomoyasu Hotei.
Location: The good ol' Big Smoke.
Stronghold: Well, my office has a warehouse, which makes for a fairly good defensible position. When things settled down though, I'd probably head north and find me an island on a lake somewhere.
Vehicle: If I could get my hands on one of those armoured transports, that'd be sweet. But in a pinch I'd just have to Ash-up my Chevy Cavalier.

Let's Play VHS What If?

There are a handful of VHS archivists in the GTA, one of whom is known in some circles as Bub Logan. Over the last few weeks, Bub has been showcasing an awesome new project on his Facebook page. He is basically taken films and fashioned VHS coverboxes as they would have looked like if they had been released by certain companies during that era. For instance, below are the first two in the series.

I KNOW, right??? Totally badass. Here's hoping there are more to come. Bub aka Tal Zimerman also has a poster blog on called Paper Cuts and runs a business called Toronto Cult Paper out of Eyesore Cinema.

What's That Sound?

So, DirtyRobot recently forwarded me some video hilarity. Two old Cockbuster customer service training videos from back in the day. These things are funny (and sad) because they are so true.

Too bad they didn't apply that LISTEN.THINK.ACT motto to their business model. Oh SNAP! Seriously though, it's no wonder they're going tits up with the parade of bad decision making made from on high. It reads like a laundry list. They burst on the scene in the late eighties, bullied all the smaller shops out of existence and then thought they were infallible. This attitude unfortunately made them complacent, short-sighted and unwilling to accept change. It explains why they delayed carrying DVD for a full year. That's not going to catch on, they said! What's that? We can buy this fledgling company called Netflix for a measly fifty Mill. No thanks, we're doing just fine.

I think probably the most perplexing was their abolishment of late fees. I assume it was a move to distinguish themselves from Rogers which became a fairly decent competitor for a while. They thought it would make them look like the good guys, if they let you keep their movies a little longer. Only problem was, they also chucked out a good share of their revenue in doing so. And guess what? It's not going to make us like you, we're only going to abuse you like an unwanted stepchild. Late fees were part of the public consciousness and an accepted part of renting. Now, you're telling me that holding onto this copy of COD4 for a month now only costs twelve dollars instead of fourty?! Absurd.

What's that sound? It's me tap dancing on your grave.

Phew, I went over three years before going on an extended BallBuster rant. I gotta say, I'm pretty proud of my restraint.

It's Not Over Yet...

Even though I have been deeply entrenched in the single player campaign of Killzone 3 for the last little bit, I couldn’t ignore the siren’s call of Dead Space 2 downloadable content.

I ripped through Dead Space 2: Severed in two sittings and here are my impressions.

You take control of security guard Gabe Weller – previously seen in the DS prequel on-rails shooter Extraction – on The Sprawl during the events of Isaac’s storyline in Dead Space 2. Trudging through some of the same blood-stained corridors that you previously travelled in Isaac’s shoes – or rather gravity boots – is a very cool idea and works well here.

It reminded me of my experience with Resident Evil 2, where you played through the game as Leon and then subsequently Claire, or vice versa. I decided to mix things up and lower the lighting settings this time around and by golly do those damn Necromorphs sneak up on you if you’re not careful. I also really dug the ending of Severed, as it had a real blockbuster action movie epicness to it. And I actually found the Peng treasure this time. Awesome!

There’s always Peng!

If you find yourself hankering for a couple more hours of strategic dismemberment, you really can’t go wrong with Dead Space 2: Severed and its six-ninety-nine price tag.

Altman be praised.

Unless you've been living under a rock the size of Gibraltar, you've heard about the train wreck known as Charlie Sheen running around tinseltown professing - among other things - that he's some kind of warlock. I think there's been some kind of mistake because I was under the impression he was something else entirely.

The back of the coverbox confirms it, so TRUE IT MUST BE.


That is all.

Tuesday, March 8, 2011


Last week I linked to a YouTube montage of gore scenes from various eighties horror flicks and one was tagged as coming from a G.L. Eastman joint called Metamorphosis. It was then that I remembered I actually had it on VHS. I acquired a used copy about a year ago that was still lying around awaiting repair. And by repair, I mean the coverbox as some of you may remember it was somewhat unique. It was, how shall we say, interactive?

So, after some careful fiddling and two replacement 1.5V batteries, I present...

Ah-mazing. I really can't believe that it still works. Now, I just have to find the green blinking eyes edition of The Dead Pit and the holographic coverbox for Demon Wind and I'll be set.

Oh, and I also figured I should, you know, watch Metamorphosis.

Dr. Peter Houseman (Gene LeBrock) is a brilliant scientist who is working on a serum that will eradicate cell degeneration. When his funding is threatened due to a lack of results, Houseman resorts to desperate measures and takes the serum himself! It doesn’t go well.

After putting in the tape, it continued to keep on giving by serving up this preview trailer for Future Zone, featuring David Carradine and his Power Glove!

As for Metamorphosis, it was ah-ight.

It's basically a low-rent retelling of The Fly, if you substitute an anti-aging serum for teleportation. That would be fine, except Eastman is no Cronenberg. From the get-go, we're flooded with scientific jargon that makes it seem a lot smarter than it actually is, but despite that I was into it. Then the middle act hit and it really started to drag. That’s not to say there wasn’t fun to be had here though. The gore is fairly decent, although I was surprised to find that Metamorphosis was made in 1990, as I would've guessed it was older.

There’s also some great dialogue. Houseman shows up at his love interest Sally’s (Catherine Baranov) front door, presumably springing from the bushes, as she comes home.

“It’s one a.m!”
“I just came from the lab, I tested the serum on myself and it works!”

Her reaction? It’s not, ‘oh my God, that’s unethical’ or ‘oh my God, we have to get you to a hospital’, but rather…

“That's fantastic, do you want to come in for some coffee?”

Aaaaand love scene ensues.

She’s not the only one with choice lines. Dr. Houseman’s sidekick Willy (David Wicker) is so hilariously nerdy that he’s practically the Screech of lab assistants. Although, Dusty Diamond never got his throat ripped out. There’s also a random and brief appearance from Laura Gemser as a prostitute. I guess she must have had a few days to kill before shooting off to Utah to work on Troll 2.

Working Girl!

However, like I said, Metamorphosis rapidly runs out of steam from there and by the end - which features one of the bigger wtf moments I’ve seen in a while – I was pretty much done with it and left scratching my head.

Sooooo, our primordial ancestors were reptilian and had an affinity for beating on sluts??? I’m confused.

This whole experience was mildly ironic as I spent the entire movie waiting to see that YouTube clip in context and it never appeared. At first I thought I had a cut version, but when I re-watched the Gorezone clip, I realized said clip wasn’t from Metamorphosis after all!

Fuckin ‘ell.

I don’t want to say the coverbox was better than the movie, buuuut…

Don't Kill The Messenger 94

Sit back and enjoy this week's trailer edition of Don't Kill The Messenger.

Waller Would Not Approve.

So, I had a trailer waiting for me in my inbox this week, for Eric England's slasher Madison County. Here it is below.

Although the number of movies Madison County looks like would fill a list as long as my arm, there may be something here. First of all, it was allegedly made for seventy-five thousand, which is pretty impressive considering how slick it looks. Second, the effects work was done by Almost Human Inc and anybody who saw Robert Hall's last flick Laid To Rest knows the gore was by far its best quality. This week was the first I'd heard of Madison County, but there was a teaser that hit the Web many moons ago.

As an interesting aside, England made some very good points on his blog in response to the various reactions to the trailer. Click here to read them.

Something South By This Way Comes.

Next, I have two trailers from movies playing South By Southwest in a few days. The first is a British flick called Attack The Block.

As far as alien encounter movies featuring Nick Frost go, this looks way more appealing to me than Paul.

The second trailer is for a teen slasher called Detention. Todd from Twitch described this as Donnie Darko on speed. Yeah, I can see that.

Is it possible that this film could outscream Scream 4? I wish it well, but quirky self-referential slashers often generate good Internet buzz, but then fizzle out (Cherry Falls anyone?) However, the visual flair demonstrated in Detention's trailer - which kind of reminded me of Scott Pilgrim a tad - has me certainly intrigued.

Friday, March 4, 2011


You may have noticed that my postings have been a little sparce of late. I am preparing to move house soon, so a lot of my free time is unfortunately being eaten up with that. Nobody likes to move. It's a frickin' hassle, but if there is one positive, it is that it forces you to take stock and sort through your shit. During the course of said junk-diving, I found the drawing below in an old and battered Muppets notebook, amongst colourful spaceship battles and D&D mazes. I vaguely remember drawing these when I was around eight or nine as part of a game of Hangman. Click to enlarge.

I don't think I did Joe Spinell any favours with my rendering of his mug, but in my defence, I hadn't seen the movie, just the poster in a local video store. I kinda had to fill in the blanks from the waist up, ya know? I'm not sure why his knife seems to have no blade, but I least I got the woman's scalp right. Second, I find it curious that I wrote "To Asia" on the crate. I guess I must have thought that's where Tasmania was.

Anyway, just wanted to pass that along with the message that if I disappear for a bit, it is because I am fashioning a new nest for THS headquarters. Talk soon.

An Empire of Horror & Action.

With all this recent love for VHS sprouting up everywhere, I thought it time to resume posting vintage home video distributor intros. Here's Imperial Entertainment.

That was culled from the recently resurrected VHS copy of Metamorphosis, that I gushed about a few months ago. Imperial was a company that popped up in the eighties and distributed many notable horror titles, including Demons 2, The Dead Pit, Michele Soavi's Stage Fright, Scalps and Black Roses. Later on, they would also crank out several martial arts films, the China O'Brien series starring Cynthia Rothrock among them. Imperial Entertainment was one of a few companies that got into the business of producing their own films and it eventually led to their demise in the mid-nineties.

See below for links to my previous intro posts.

Bringin' The Gore.

I saw something cool in my Facebook feed yesterday (via Adam of Eyesore Cinema) and wanted to share it with y'all. Plus, I can't think of anything better to spice up your work week than this YouTube gore compilation featuring blood-spattered clips from movies such as Intruder, Slayer and Night of the Creeps. Enjoy!

I have to say I kind of want to see Decampitated now...

I tried to watch the first two Gorezone installments, but being north of the border, I'm locked out. Boo-urns! It might work for you, though.
