Dear HorrorHound Weekend:
Thanks for another amazing horror convention. I only get to see you twice
a year, but you always make it worth my while.
You are truly one of the best horror cons on any planet, Earth or
otherwise (I know a few saucer men who claim that Mars has a great convention
scene, but everyone I know who has been there has been vaporized).
So you're looking for scary a movie to watch on Halloween. Maybe you're
not a huge horror buff, so you Google "Scary Halloween Movies," and you get a
thousand lists of the best horror movies ever. They're all the same:
The Exorcist, Friday the 13th, Psycho, Halloween, Silence of the Lambs,
and so on.
capsules are primarily produced as elementary school class projects,
leaving history in the hands of archivists most concerned with the
preservation of their Pokemon cards and A+ spelling tests -- not
necessarily the best way to provide an accurate picture of life at a
given moment.To get it right, you need a grander scale and better technology, which is exactly the combination director Kevin Macdonald and producer Ridley Scott had on their side when they set out to create the user-generated documentary Life In A Day

HorrorHound Weekend -- recently held in Indianapolis -- is like summer camp for horror nerds:
thousands of terror aficionados congregate to meet creepy celebrities like Joe
Bob Briggs or Ted White (who played Jason in Friday
the 13th Part 4), buy a shitload of hard-to-find movie memoribilia, and
discus obscure rubber monster movies with people dressed like Freddy Krueger
and giant robots until 4:30 in the morning.
Dust off that VCR grandma gave you in '82 and get ready for the VHS revival! Despite the 3D-IMAX-bells-and-whistles craze happening at your local 65 theatre movie-plex, hardcore videotape collectors are patrolling the web for hundred dollar copies of grindhouse flicks you've never even heard of. Why would these Luddites spend hard-earned recession-era dollars on obsolescence you may ask?
Santa 8000 is the star of an animated web series, in which he must kill
hordes of mutants in order to survive a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
