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 293

Hey guys, just throwing up a few goodies before heading off to the only football game I watch every year. However you choose to celebrate the day, have fun!

From A to Zombie.

Here's a cool promotional video for the upcoming enhanced version of the 2015 video game Dying Light entitled The Following featuring the evolution of the zombie.

I feel like they skimmed over the seventies and eighties, but I get that they wanted to focus on all areas of zombie media. There's no denying the make up effects are pretty stellar, though. For more info on The Following, click here.

That's My Kind Of Cartoon.

Lunchmeat unearthed this hilarious news article from 1990 about a family in Kansas who got more than they bargained for when they rented a children's tape for Christmas.

I wonder what horror title that “detective film about decapitation, rape, and sadomasochism” was. 555 perhaps? I guess we'll never know.

This article reminded me of the time at my video store when some teens taped over some of a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Hockey with their own little home video. This would have been amusing if not for all the homophobic and racial slurs throughout. More amusing though was that these brainiacs thought to wear masks in the vid, but not think that all we'd have to do find them was look up the last person to rent the tape.

This is Why I Drive Everywhere.

Lastly, I just wanted to post this short I happened upon during a YouTube crawl. This piece by NY based filmmaker Sion Griffiths is my favourite kind of short film - short and with a great finish. Enjoy!
