Shining


My friend Mike just sent me this bit of genius. I wish they'd managed to work in the elevators full of blood. (If it doesn't take you to the trailer immediately, just click on the purple words "Shining Redux.")

Voice in the Dark



Welcome to the Horrorthon Blog. In 2001, my friend Jeff and his brother Brent started a contest based on the simple question "who can watch the most horror movies during the month of October?" In 2003, they started writing capsule reviews to serve as quick references for anyone who might want a bit of info before settling in to watch Savage Weekend or Bio Zombie.

I joined the contest in 2004. Competition was fierce and numbers were high. All three contestants watched more than 90 movies by Halloween.

This year, we're deliberately concentrating on the modern classics. The Halloweens, the Friday the 13th's, the Nightmares on Elm Street. The big names, the big numbers. With lots of space for the obscure stuff.
