Horror Never Dies

I went to see "The Bank Job" last night (a terrific movie by the way) and saw no less than 3 trailers for horror movies, including one crazy flick based on a story by Clive Barker called "The Midnight Meat Train"!

It looks like sick fun. I hope it doesn't suck.

Speaking of which, I recently saw what I thought was the coolest vampire movie of the last decade, "30 Days of Night." It's done up with a lot of style and Josh Hartnett is kickass in it. It's kind of like "28 Days Later" meets "The Thing."

And while we're giving free movie plugs, I remain haunted by the sick and brilliant "Devil's Rejects." The cinematography, the editing, the use of music in the film, not to mention some acting which is first rate, add up to an amazing piece of cinema. It's not for the faint at heart. But, most art isn't. Or at least shouldn't be.
