The Night of Dread happened last night. Organized by Toronto’s Clay & Paper Theatre, the annual event, now in its 11th year, is designed to bring together the community in a pre-Halloween march around the city streets, complete with bands, hand-made costumes and masks. Each year a different fear is mocked. Appropriately enough, this year’s fear was environmental disaster.

TERRIFYING TV: “BEING HUMAN” SEASON 2 PREMIERES TONIGHT ON SPACE

Posted in DVD, Ghosts, Gore, Monsters, Reviews, TV, Vampires, Violence, Werewolves with tags , , , , on October 28, 2010 by darklordbunnykins

It sounded like the set-up to a joke: a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost move in together. But Being Human has proven itself to be an addictive BBC TV drama. It’s currently in production on its third season, and the SyFy network is, for better or worse, working on an American remake.

For those unfamiliar, Being Human is about vampire Mitchell (Aidan Turner), werewolf George (Russell Tovey) and ghost Annie (Lenora Crichlow) living together and trying to lead normal lives in a Bristol suburb. Season One saw the trio struggle with what it mean to be human (nudge nudge) and what it means to be a monster. There was blood and there was guts, but there was also heart which made it an unexpected and pleasurable discovery.

The DLB is always excited to get his copy of the newest Rue Morgue Magazine, but the upcoming November issue is extra special because I penned the feature on the upcoming movie Monsters which comes out in Canada Nov. 12.

Here’s a rundown of what else we can expect…

GARY NUMAN

The Opera House

Toronto ON

Oct. 24

Any worries that Gary Numan’s status in North America as a one-hit wonder would mean that no one would turn up to The Opera House to see the synth-pop icon and his band perform his seminal 1979 album The Pleasure Principle were pushed aside when the “Sold Out” sign was spotted on the east end Toronto venue’s door.

MOVIE REVIEW: PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2

Directed by Tod Williams

Written by Michael R. Perry

Paramount Pictures

I had the chance to see Paranormal Activity in early September last year, about six weeks before it opened and before the “you’ve got to go see this” hype began. Suitably unarmed, I was genuinely frightened and did not sleep well that night.
