Halloween Countdown – October 26

We’ve spent a good amount of time in Italy this year, a lot in the UK and the US, but what about Canada? There is a strong Canadian horror film tradition, and not just in “Body-Horror”.

This is a particularly nifty little trailer- I think it sells the tone and humor of the movie pretty much perfectly.

The 90s were a banner time for straight-to-video vampire movies, and this one is a definite gem. It plays with the genre expectations and archetypal tropes of vampire cinema in deft ways.

It is a perfect sort of underdog story- the loser cab driver, the rundown donut shop. the troubled waitress- throwing a cranky vampire into the midst, plus a cowboy boot wearing David Cronenberg as the local crime lord- and you get, well, Blood and Donuts
