Hello all. Well, we're knee deep in every horrorphile's favourite month and everything seems to be moving along nicely. I can see from my various social media feeds that several October horror movie marathons are in full swing and it warms my heart.
I myself am in the calm before the storm (i.e Toronto After Dark) here, so I'm enjoying this little Thanksgiving breather before things get crazy for here on in. So, for now, here are some terror tidbits to chew on.
Here is a cool little effects-heavy short I found on Vimeo called Goat Witch. It is from the guys who brought you last year's The Demon's Rook, that made some noise on the festival circuit last year. This short features a lot of things I hold dear, such as gore, dark rituals... oh, and blood-soaked, full frontal nudity. Enjoy!
Arrow A Go-Go.
Most cinephiles have heard of Arrow Video by now. Based out of the UK, they have killing it with their horror Blu-ray releases over the past few years. Unfortunately, due to being across the pond, their wonderful wares are region locked (as well as all that pesky overseas shipping) which continues to pose a problem to a large percentage of North American consumers. Well, Arrow now has their sights on expanding, but they need your help.
One-hundred-thousand smackers is a lofty goal to be sure, but it looks like they are already a third of the way there, so the demand is obviously there. Plus, fifteen bones is a pretty good price for an Arrow tee, wouldn't you say? For more info on the campaign, click here.
Well? Are You???
Though it was a bit before my time (I was weened on Twilight Zone reruns, Tales both from the Crypt and Darkside, and also the lesser known series, Darkroom) the show Are You Afraid Of The Dark? was pretty substantial nightmare fuel for kiddies of the nineties. Recently, Reddit user R2Teep2 was kind enough to not only discover that every episode is available on YouTube, but also cull all the links together in a handy episode guide.

Whether reliving childhood memories or discovering them anew, these should keep you busy throughout the Halloween season.
