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 #17: The Armoire

I was glad to see one of my favourite shorts from last year show up on recently show up on YouTube. Evan Cooper's The Armoire is everything you want in a creeper. The page proclaims “FOR BEST VIEWING EXPERIENCE, WATCH IN THE DARK WITH THE VOLUME TURNED UP” and I completely concur. Enjoy!

For those more keen-eyed cinephiles, you'll notice that the older actor in this short is Kirk Baltz, the dude who famously lost his ear in Reservoir Dogs. I reckon things didn't go much better for him here either. What I love about this film, apart from the look of its antagonist, is the wonderful sound design. So simple, but so pants-fillingly effective.
