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 183

Hey folks. I'm just stopping in with some tasty morsels before continuing my adventures with Booker & Elizabeth.

A Bloody Night Out.

While doing research for my post on The Goretorium, I caught wind of another new interactive horror attraction called The Great Horror Campout.

This one involves an overnight camping scenario, where you encounter all sorts of evil creatures while participating in a bizarre scavenger hunt. The major difference between this and most other attractions is that these “creatures” can touch you. Depending on a previously agreed scare level, you may be “forcibly handled, moved, bound, hooded, chained and subjected to simulated torture by your tormentors”. Now that's what I call interactive! If you are in the Los Angeles area and this sounds like your bag, check out the deets here.

Dying Light.

Here below is the game trailer for Techland's new zombie actioner Dying Light.

Nice looking trailer, but I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed. It feels like a mishmash of Mirror's Edge, Infamous, Dead Island and Resident Evil and when it comes right down to it, I'd rather just play new iterations of those four titles. The only thing that is mildly intriguing is the GTA IV-style open-world multiplayer, but we'll see how that pans out. I know I sound jaded, but I'm just being realistic. With E3 on the doorstep, I'm going to be flooded with videos like this over the next few days, so who knows if I'll even remember this one once the dust settles.

Domo Arigato, Mr. Argento.

Adding to the list of awesome movie-themed bars/nightclubs I will likely never visit is Cambiare in Tokyo, Japan.

Modelled after Dario Argento's 1977 masterpiece Suspiria, Cambiare features the same stain glassed and floral walled d├ęcor. From the pictures below, it certainly looks authentic. I'd stay away from the red wine though.
