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 210

Hey folks! Once again, I am transmitting from the past as I attended one of my friend Serena's infamous drinking game movie nights on Saturday and knew I would be in no shape to post otherwise. Here's what I have for you this week.

The Black Museum IV

On Wednesday, I took a trip out to The Royal to check out a screening of this;

Carnival Of Souls has a special place in my heart as it is one of the first films that I reviewed here for THS. Seeing it on the big screen was a joy and I believe I liked it even better the second time round, perhaps because I was focusing less on story and more on its voluminous dream-like qualities. This screening was put on by The Black Museum and in addition to the film, they also announced the first three lectures of their upcoming fourth semester.

I am so all about these, the first one especially. I really want to see how deeply Ms. West delves into the source of those half-dozen bundles of nasty we got during the 00's. For more info of The Black Museum, click here.

Mirror, Mirror.

This week, a new poster surfaced for Mike Flanagan's excellent haunted mirror flick Oculus.

A solid poster for a stellar movie. I do my best to steer you guys in the right direction - or least my perception of the right direction - but again, I must implore you. When this movie comes out April 11th, GO SEE IT. For those who missed it a few weeks ago, here's the teaser trailer.

Say Cheese!

I found these wonderfully creepy vintage photos on this week. I think they put it best when they say, “what passed for everyday life 60+ years ago might send you running down the block screaming today.” Well, get your sneakers on.

I love that last one. It hurts my brain to think about what sequence of events could lead to that photo being taken. For the rest of the photo set, click here.
