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 136

Good morning everyone. I've got a fistful of nostalgia for you today, so let's get right into it.

6 & Seventh.

The Seventh Art recently met up with filmmaker & member of Canadian collective Astron-6, Steve Kostanski at Toronto's Queen Video to talk shop. Here is the interview below.

For more Kostanski, check out the Laser Focus podcast he guested on last December, where we talked about our fondest VHS memories.


Scott Glosserman's follow-up to his 2006 debut Behind The Mask has been gaining traction over the last few months and I've been waiting for the right time to draw attention to it. Aptly titled Before The Mask: The Return of Leslie Vernon, Glosserman has been diligently acquiring funds from a rather unique source - the very fans who'd like to see it made. What put me over the edge though, was this recently released limited edition poster.

Needless to say, this is already on its way to me - even if he did borrow the tagline from The Mutilator. For more information on how you can help, click here.

Traces of Analog.

As you know, I love VHS. And likely so do you, or you wouldn't be here. Filmmaker Eileen Smith also loves VHS, and made this short documentary on the subject.

Talk about hitting the nail on the head, right?

If you wanna see some pure bullshit regarding Behind the Mask, you should check out 'Dreams on Spec' (I'm pretty sure you can stream it from some film site somewhere). Goes behind the scenes into the writing and production of the movie and shows how Glosserman gently takes advantage of the writer and pushes him off the production without the writer really knowing what's happening. But you don't actually 100% disagree with what he's doing either. Only interesting part of that Doc though.
