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 221

Good morning everyone. Hope you'll be spending some time with the one who bore you today! In the meantime, here are some vids from this week past.

First Person Monroeville.

Here's a video for a cool mod called Project Dawn. Taken from the 2005 video game Land of the Dead, Dawn puts the player in the mall from George A. Romero's 1978 classic Dawn of the Dead.

I love the attention to detail in this mod, from the store names and locales right down to the chanting music in The Gunner's Den. For more info, check the main page by going here.

Trailer Tandem.

I have a few trailers for you today. The first is for Black Fawn Films' newest effort The Drownsman.

I have to stay that I'm pretty impressed with how slick this thing looks. Black Fawn's partnership with Breakthrough Entertainment seems to have been a fruitful one and they've certainly gathered a lot of buzz for this project over the last few months. The Drownsman will be playing the market at Cannes next week, so I wish them luck on capturing a distributor.

The second trailer is for the upcoming documentary Leviathan about the first two Hellraiser films from director Kevin McDonagh.

I love a good horror doc, but I do find the apparent absence of Clive Barker a little disheartening. Regardless of that, if it is half as good as the epic Nightmare and Friday docs of recent years, I'll be hooked!

Deja TVu

I just read on Bloody Disgusting about this new show coming to Fox this summer called Wayward Pines about a federal agent going to a mysterious small town searching for two of his missing comrades. Of course, all is not what it appears. Here's the logline;

“Based on the best-selling novel Pines by Blake Crouch and brought to life by suspenseful storyteller M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Signs), Wayward Pines is said to be an intense, mind-bending event thriller evocative of the classic cult hit Twin Peaks.”

No shit, really? The name Shyamalan makes me want to run from the hills, but the fact that this is pre-existing material gives me hope that it won't end with the revelation they were all inside a snow globe or something. Plus, the cast is pretty stellar. With people like Toby Jones, Matt Dillon, Juliette Lewis and Terence Howard involved, it's just further proof that the small screen is now attracting more and more high profile talent.
