Now that it has slowed down a bit after all the Toronto After Dark and Halloween shenanigrams, things can get back to normal around here. I have an all-video DKTM for you today.
Save Thy Soul.
Last year at Toronto After Dark, my favourite short was an Argentinian effort called Deus Irae. This week, I received a kind email letting me know that the full short was now online, so here it is below.
Oh, The Horror.
Toronto blogger Bob Turnbull (of Eternal Sunshine of the Logical Mind) recently posted a brilliant horror film montage, set to the Mogwai tune Batcat. Here it is below.
I find it fascinating how certain images can stay in your brain. I haven't seen some of the movies referenced in that video in ages - a few of them I'd like to forget - but they immediately flooded back when their fleshy bits came up onscreen. Excellent job, Mr. Turnbull!
What's French for Trailer?
Here, thanks to Twitch, is the new trailer for Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo's sophomore effort Livid. I had my problems with the film when I saw it at TIFF, but the trailer certainly makes it pop. And hey, I'd re-watch it, if only just to see the lovely Chloé Coulloud again. Here's the trailer for the French release below.
So, that's it for another week, guys. Now I'm off to finally check out the latest Paranormal Activity flick, so check back during the week to hear my thoughts on it.
