  • Why do horror filmmakers lose their edge as they age? (A.V. Club) - This piece ponders why horror heavyweights like Craven, Carpenter and Romero's most recent films pale next to their earlier work. (And lets just say we find it hard to disagree.)
  • Like The Best Zombies, VHS Just Wont Die (The New York Times) - A fresh perspective amid the booming 3D and HQ age: VHS still has an aesthetic edge in the horror genre.

WEEKEND WATCHES

  • The Rum Diary - Johnny Depp takes on another role as famed-journo Hunter S. Thompson. Needless to say, it looks insanely surreal.
  • Martha Marcy May Marlene - One of our fave films at TIFF this year about a girl making her way out of a cult. And it stars the only Olsen sister who can act.
TRAILER OF THE WEEK: ParaNorman


A zombie-apocalypse horror for kids? Cool.
