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 244

Hey all. I hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly. On the horrible side of things, here's what I have for you today.

Dawn Approaches.

Last week at the Sony Playstation press conference, more details were revealed about their upcoming horror title Until Dawn. Here's the newest trailer.

The interactive slasher featuring Hayden Panettierre looks like a cross between Heavy Rain & Friday the 13th, which you can imagine is of great interest to me. Set for release on the PS4 in mid-2015, I can't wait to get my hands on it. To see some actual gameplay, click here.

Indie Survival Guide.

A visible figure in Toronto's indie film scene is writer/director/producer Justin McConnell. This week, he announced his latest documentary project, Clapboard Jungle: Surviving The Independent Film Business

Combining his own experiences from over fifteen years in the business with an impressive list of interview subjects including Tom Holland, Brian Yuzna, Tom Savini and Dick Miller, Clapboard Jungle aims to be a user's guide to the world of indie film. Set for release sometime next year, the website is now live and can be viewed here.

Dark Pixels.

I came across the little 3D animated gem called Bogeyman this week.

Orchestrated by Andrew Lord and Ben Haworth, this passion project created between jobs is a perfect example of economy with wonderful use of visuals to convey story. Well done, guys.
