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.

Okay folks, here is your last Don't Kill the Messenger before the end of the world. Enjoy guys, it's been a slice.

Daemonium: Zero Hour

About a year ago, I posted a link to an Argentinian zombie short called Daemonium. Those who watched it shouldn't be surprised why it caught my attention. Now, one year later, director Pablo Pares is back with the second chapter of his proposed five-part post apocalyptic epic. Here it is below. To refresh your memory, click here for part one.

His Face All Red.

I came across a wonderful web comic the other day from artist Emily Carroll called His Face All Red.  Much like Ryan Andrews' Our Bloodstained Roof (which I posted about last year), Carroll makes great use of the scrolling page online format. Click on the image below to check it out.

The Shining Bass.

The illustration & design website The Fox Is Black recently posted a terrific article about some rejected artwork for the poster for Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of The Shining. I was not aware until now that not only was the final artwork done by the legendary graphic artist Saul Bass, but it was one of several hundred proposed ideas. Many of these rejected drawings are now on display at the Kubrick exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Here, with Kubrick's notes included, are some examples below.
