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.

It Follows, Today!

Hey all. Just a reminder that David Robert Mitchell's It Follows expands to select theatres this weekend. If it is playing anywhere near you, do yourself a favour and GO SEE IT.

On the strengths of its run in four theatres in NY & LA, the Weinsteins have decided to forego their usual indie-horror VOD route and take a chance on a theatrical release. Don't make them regret it.

I really can't stress the importance of this film doing well this weekend. It Follows is one of the freshest indie horrors to come out in a while, and if we, as a fan base, do not support it, you are not ever allowed to complain that the only horrors that get released are bland, carbon copies of the same old thing.

So again I say, GO SEE IT! Even if, for some reason, you don't feel it lives up to the hype, just by putting your butt in the seat, you are saying yes to studios taking a chance on stuff that is new, exciting and provocative.

Do your part.

Okay, rant over.
