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 #35: Harvey's Dream

With Castle Rock now well into his first season, I thought I'd post of my favourite Stephen King dollar baby short films, Alex Von Hoffman's Harvey's Dream.

Harvey's Dream first appeared in The New Yorker in 2003 and later included in his collection Just After Sunset. If you are not aware of the term Dollar Baby, Stephen King notoriously grants permission to adapt his short works at the cost of one dollar. There have been dozens, perhaps hundreds of these by now, and Hoffman's (since I discovered it while screening shorts last year) version still chills me to the bone.
