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 296

Hi everyone! I'm recovering from a pretty bangin' weekend (which I'll talk about tomorrow), but here's what I've got for you today.

Horror Voodoo.

An awesome video for the Massive Attack track Voodoo In My Blood featuring the lovely Rosamund Pike hit the Web this week.

This reminds me of that old Reese's Pieces commercial, “hey you got Possession in my Phantasm! Well, you got Phantasm in my Possession!” Love it!

Soskas Gone Wild.

The announcement came down a few days ago that The Soska Twins would be directing a remake of David Cronenberg's 1977's Rabid.

Jen & Sylvia Soska.

The horror community immediately responded with cries of both joy and despair, of course. Myself, I am generally against remakes, but I feel Rabid could be updated to reflect today's social issues. Whether the Soskas capitalize on that, or just go for the gross-out, remains to be seen, but the potential is there. To be honest, I'm more interested in who is cast in the Marilyn Chambers role. Since the Soskas are involved, the logical choice would be either Katherine Isabelle or Tristan Risk. Now THAT would be a movie I would watch.

Welcome To Fright Night.

A new horror film festival is coming up in a few weeks - Fright Night Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario. Founder Aaron Allen has been doing one-off screening at a cool little venue called The Staircase Theatre for years now, but this is the first time he has put together a full-fledged festival.

The films playing include the world premiere of Scott Schirmer's Harvest Lake, Matthew John Lawrence's The Barn, and Blood In The Snow 2015 favourite She Who Must Burn by Larry Kent. The festival runs March 11-12th, and the full lineup and tickets can be found here.
