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 #23: Russian Roulette

As diplomatic relations between the free world continue to circle the bowl, I figure we could use some levity. I saw Ben Aston's 2014 short film Russian Roulette a few years ago now and it continues to stick with me.

Even to this day, I find myself saying “beep boop boop boop that is noise” when farting around with random buttons. Russian Roulette is such a perfectly conceived and executed piece bolstered by the chemistry of its two leads, Bec Hill & Stewart Lockwood.

Later that year, Aston also made the equally striking He Took His Skin Off For Me.
