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.

Short of the Week #3: Heart of Karl

I'm gonna throw up some CanCon this week. This year marks the tenth anniversary of me discovering the work of Winnipeg collective Astron 6. These guys made many great shorts over the years, but my favourite still remains Steve Kostanski's Heart of Karl.

I love the world building - that he would later employ in his 2011 debut feature Manborg - and inherent weirdness of this piece. Several A-6 members now live & work in Toronto, so it's definitely cool seeing them around town at different events and involved in various projects.
