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 233

Hey everyone. It's been a long week, but here's a rundown of some of the cooler stuff that went down in the last few days.

Console Carnage.

It was super great week for horror gaming. Coming out of Gamescom, we got trailers for not just one, but two upcoming titles. The first is the teen-slasher game Until Dawn.

The trailer doesn't give too much information on gameplay, but damn if it doesn't look like fun, and if it is really as infinitely CYOA as their site suggests, this is a game for which I have been waiting years and years.

The second was for P.T, which we now know is the new Silent Hill game. Although, for the first few days the only ones privy to that information were the ones who braved the playable teaser on the PSN. Making it through to the other side, you saw this;

Kojima and del Toro seems like a wonderful pairing, and I can't wait to play this (perhaps even with the Project Morpheus?) Since I don't yet have a PS4 though, I have to live vicariously through the walkthroughs on YouTube, like this one, though my favourite reaction video has to be from Gamespot's Mary Kish.

Nice Spread.

Last week, I posted the trailer for Astron 6's new film The Editor. Well, late this week, they revealed the new poster, which is a thing of beauty.

Created by renowned UK artist Graham Humphreys, I think it perfectly captures the sensationalist tone they are going for with this project. The Editor premieres at TIFF's Midnight Madness next month.

More Trailers.

Speaking of posters, another documentary I contributed to was Kevin Burke's poster art exploration Twenty-Four by Thirty-Six. This week, a new trailer hit the Web;

Lastly, my good buddy Jeff Sinasac, who has appeared in two of my short films, is now hard at work on a feature he wrote & produced called Red Spring. This week, they released a concept trailer.

As you can see, it looks super ambitious and I can't wait to see the finished product.
