drag-me-to-hell-posterFinally the nice weather is here! This means more time spent outside the dungeon. Coming to theatres at the end of the month is Sam Raimi’s DRAG ME TO HELL. Due in theatres May 29th. If you live in Vancouver you can catch HANSEL and GRETEL playing at Tinseltown. It is the Korean’s twist on the classic story. It is getting excellent reviews. There is also some pretty interesting selections coming to Canadian video stores this month. MUM AND DAD comes out May 5th. I reviewed this one on March 16th and gave it a 3.5/5. CARGO 200 (May 5) and EDEN LOG (May 19) have been on my “to see” list for a while. Those who lean towards the mainstream will have MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D (May 19) and UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS (May 12) to look forward to. Also coming out on May 19th is the HBO Series TRUE BLOOD: The complete First Season. I loved this show. Vampires have “come out of the closet” and are attempting to live with humans. The focus is on one vampire in particular named Bill. Bill falls for a mind reading waitress living in small town America. I look forward to seeing the second season this summer. I have been putting off seeing SEED. It is directed by Uwe Boll who directed one of the worst zombie films ever made called HOUSE OF THE DEAD. I think I will finally brave this one. If you are a regular reader of my blog you already know that I will be attending the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear in August. They will be announcing this years guests on May 14th and I am pretty damn psyched about that. As always the dungeon has a massive list of horror to see both old and new, so you can look forward
to a mixed bag of goodies this month.

I would like to take some time here to thank Cinematronica for the kind words about the Dungeon. You may be surprised to learn that I do enjoy the odd film that lays outside the horror genre. If you love film, you have to check out this blog. They review it all! Also, stop by Dhanametta’s weblog. They rescue and find homes for cats and dogs in need. I know the people who run this rescue. Their passion and dedication to this work is genuine and completely selfless. They need your vote daily to help them win a much deserved grant. Go visit both of these blogs by clicking their link on my blogroll on the right hand side of the page.

Goriest of Gratitude to everyone who continues to check out my blog!

Cheers!
