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 205

Hey all. I'm helping out on a shoot all this weekend, so I'm talking to you from the past right now. Here's what I've got for this week.

An Embarrassment of Riches.

Over the last few weeks, the TIFF Bell Lightbox has been wheeling out announcement after announcement of great stuff for 2014. On the heels of the David Cronenberg exhibit - which I do plan to finally get to next week - TIFF plans to bring in the highly touted Kubrick exhibit which has previously been wowing crowds around the world. Also, in addition to a upcoming Paul Verhoeven retrospective, there is also one for the films of Stephen King.

Starting January 18th, the Kingdom of Fear programme features twelve films, including Cujo, Christine, Misery, Carrie, Stand By Me, The Shawshank Redemption and Maximum Overdrive. I've been spending a lot of time in this building lately and it doesn't look like that going to change for quite some time. For more information on what's coming up at the BLB, click here.

I'll Watch This.

Here's a trailer that popped up online a few days ago.

Not bad for something that was originally made as a faux trailer made for shits and giggles. What do ya know? Sometimes nightmares do come true!

She Killed It.

Here's a cool little video that I came across on this week. What looks like a porno audition gradually becomes something much more sinister.

The punchline is decent, but for me I was struck by the lead. She reminds me so much of Christina Lindberg with her soft-spoken, sweet and innocent demeanor. I have no idea what this viral is for, but it certainly made an impression.
