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 164

Hello all, here's your first DKTM of 2013!

Slasher Squad!

I came across a cool crowd funding campaign this week on A couple of Aussie filmmakers are trying to drum up funds to finish their horror short entitled Slasher Squad. The byline is as follows;

“SLASHER SQUAD is an 8 minute, action-horror short film about a team of sexy and deadly women who hunt slasher villains by using themselves as bait. Think of a darker CHARLIE'S ANGELS meets FRIDAY THE 13TH, inspired by the likes of BUFFY, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE and even SCOOBY DOO. It’s not a comedy but has a wicked sense of humour, playing with the conventions of the genre alongside films like Wes Craven’s SCREAM and Joss Whedon’s recent CABIN IN THE WOODS.”

And here's their pitch video.

This is a genre stew that obviously has me intrigued. With the Behind The Mask sequel and live-action adaptation of Hack/Slash still nowhere to seen in the near future, Slasher Squad seems like a decent alternative. If you'd like more info, check out the main Pozible page here.

Down Underneath.

I've been hearing good things about a certain Australian sci-fi horror project called Crawlspace. Here, courtesy of Twitch, is a tiny clip.

It looks like it borrows a lot of elements from Paul WS Anderson (namely Resident Evil & Event Horizon), but hey I'll give it a shot.

Red With A Capital R.

Having made the decision to check out the Evil Dead remake, I need not see anymore of the promo materials that likely only serve to ruin all the good bits, but for those who are still inclined, here is the latest Red Band Trailer. The Evil Dead hits theatres April 12th.
