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.

The Rest of the Fest.

Fantasia released the rest of its lineup, along with the schedule, yesterday and it was just as impressive as the previous two announcements. I now know what will be playing during my five-night stay in Montreal. Here's a sampling;

The Riley Stearns-directed Mary Elizabeth Winstead vehicle Faults, about a mysterious cult is playing on the Friday. I'm sad that it is playing alongside Open Windows, which I also wanted to see, but sorry, Winstead > Sasha Grey any day of the week.

A movie called Zombeavers should not need any explanation. A perfect midnight primer heading into the weekend.

Adrián García Bogliano's follow-up to Here Comes The Devil involves a war vet trying to find out who - or what - is picking off his neighbours. Throw in the always solid Nick Damici and you got my butt in the seat.

The premise seems a little tired, but it's got Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick in it. 'Nuff said.

Russkies Leo Gabriadze & Timur Bekmambetov take on the topical subject of cyber-bullying in this tale of digital comeuppance.

John McNaughton returns to the director's chair with an impressive cast including Samantha Morton, Peter Fonda and the above-pictured Michael Shannon.

There will be others no doubt, squeezed in between the beer garden patio of the Embassy and various decadent eateries, but these are the ones you should be hearing about from me in the coming weeks.

Have a great weekend everyone, and I'll see you back here on Sunday.
