No DKTM this week. Rather some words about some bad news I heard this week. Another video store, perhaps THE video store in Toronto, is closing its doors. The legendary Suspect Video which has been operating in Mirvish Village for twenty-five years will be shutting at the end of the year.
While it is true that the brand will still continue in online form, that little shop on Markham has been a chapel of underground film worship for decades. This saddens me deeply. The flagship location of Queen Video and Film Buff are now gone, as well, so that only leaves a handle left, like Eyesore Cinema (newly relocated to Bloor St W) and Bay St Video to carry the torch.
In the final months leading up to the closure, Suspect is having a clearance sale.
So, if you happen to be in the GTA, go on in and say hi to Luis. Tell them The Horror Section sent you.
