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 144

Good morning all.  I'm a little shell-shocked from last night's midnight Vagrancy screening of old 35mm trailers - which actually amounted to about forty per cent vintage refreshment ads and German porn - so let's get right to it.

Kick It!

Here's are a couple of Kickstarter campaigns that came to my attention this week.  You remember that really cool print of the kids battling zombies on a school playground?  Well, artist Jason Chan has teamed up with Massive Black Games to bring that image to life in the form of a video game!  Check out the pitch below.

Next, is a zombie-based school curriculum designed by David Hunter, a Social Studies teacher in Seattle.

I wish I had something like this when I was in school, as I might have paid attention.  These are real life skills, people!

Lastly, I wanted to remind you that the VHS documentary Adjust Your Tracking still has a few more weeks left on its Kickstarter campaign, if you'd like to donate.

The New Flesh Comes Back To Toronto.

I was extremely excited to hear there will be a David Cronenberg exhibit coming to the TIFF Lightbox next year.  If there was ever an oeuvre that has cool props aplenty, it's Cronenberg's.

The exhibit will be accompanied by a programme of film screenings, as well as a intriguing interactive video game, the details of which are TBD.  I can't wait!  Click here for the full press release.

A Nice Piece of Tail.

Here's a cool trailer for the upcoming Norwegian flick Thale that I came across last week.  

We all know that Scandinavian horror rocks, so hopefully this one rolls around soon.
