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 195

Good afternoon everyone! Here's some quick news before I scoot off to my family Thanksgiving festivities.

Why Horror?

My buddy Tal Zimerman is knee deep in production on his horror documentary Why Horror? and could really use your help. Tal and his partners have already shot a great deal of stuff including interviews with genre icons like George A. Romero, John Carpenter, Don Coscarelli and Eli Roth, but they would like to expand their documentaries scope beyond North American into other countries. Here's below is the promo for their Kickstarter campaign.

I don't think horror has been examined in quite this way before and, take it from me, the subject is in good hands. If this interests you at all, please contribute. You can check out the details and rewards, by clicking on the banner below.

M is For...

So, the ABC's of Death 2 26th Filmmaker competition has been going for a few months now and the total submissions for the letter “M” is now over a hundred and counting. I haven't had time to watch the most recent ones yet - they are coming in it at a pace of multiple times daily now - but my favourite so far has to be Summer Johnson's M is For Make Believe. Here it is below.

The submission I was involved with should be thrown into the mix this week, but more on that when it drops.

The Walking Dead Returns.

Here is a short promo for The Walking Dead fourth season premiere.

I was also excited to hear that three characters from the comic are soon to be included into the TV show, the most important of which being Abraham, played by Michael Cudlitz. A veteran of television from shows like Band of Brothers and Southland, I think he is a pretty good choice.

The other characters arriving with him are Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and Rosita (Christian Serratos). The new season begins tonight at 9pm on AMC.
