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.

DKTM 126

Good afternoon everyone! Here is what's in the pipe currently.

You Think You Know The Story.

After gestating for many moons, Cabin In The Woods is now blazing forward full steam ahead. Last week, we saw a poster emerge and now there, on its heels, is a trailer.

Wow, that was NOT what I was expecting. There is a lot going on here. I am really excited to see where this goes now. Here's hoping Lionsgate stays firm on their April 2012 release date.

The ABC's of Gens.

Now that the ABC's of Death are all locked in, we can look forward to bits and pieces of bloody sinew to come across the Web in the next few months. Below, is a still from Xavier Gens' offering for his yet undisclosed letter.

B is for Blood Loss? Or E is for Exsanguination, perhaps? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. For more info on the ABC's of Death project, click here. Oh, and if you'd like to see the ABC contest entry I co-produced a few months ago, click here.

Dark Reflections.

Lastly, I wanted to draw your attention to a new show called Black Mirror that just started on Channel 4 in Britain. It is a three part anthology mini-series from Charlie Brooker, who gave us the fantastic zombie series Dead Set a few years ago. The first episiode, "The National Anthem" aired last week, and man, it always amazes me what they'll show on TV over there. It was truly one of the most bizarre mixes of comedy & horror I have ever seen, and definitely the most "modern" piece of genre fiction out there. For those of you who don't have access to Channel 4, you can also watch it online. Here is the first part below.

Keeping with the over-infatuation with technology theme, the second episode, "15 Million Merits" appears to shine a light on our obsession with reality shows. It airs on Channel 4 tonight. For more info, click here.
