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.

John Carpenter in Toronto.

The maestro John Carpenter brought his Anthology tour to Toronto on Sunday night. I had taken a huge gamble not travelling to NYC when he played there last year in hopes he would eventually come here, and it paid off. What an amazing show!

Looking out at the crowd around me, it was a who's who of the GTA horror community. It was a popular comment on my social media feeds that this show was akin to a religious experience and truth be told, for a bunch of heathens like us, this is about as close as it gets. And pray at the altar we did.

The almost ninety-minute set hit all the greatest scores of Carpenter's illustrious career as well as selections from his Lost Themes album including my favourite track, Wraith. For those who missed it, here's a little taste. Enjoy!
