The Black Dog Video Newsletter: Rocktober Edition!
Tomorrow’s the first of October and it’s the beginning of a busy month here at Ye Olde Dog of the Black. Events and activities include:
~ launch of the new website (probably this weekend – keep your eyes peeled for a little notification especially just for you!)
~ The Black Dog movie marathon on October 29th to raise funds for the Vancouver Food Bank
~ International Video Store Day on October 16th
~ Black Dog’s annual daily horror movie recommendation starts tomorrow on all the social media platforms!
~ Halloween (I think it’s on the 31st this year)
So many things!
Dead Pigs – Folks from different backgrounds run into each other (probably not literally) as thousands of dead pigs float down a river heading towards Shanghai for some reason. Stars the wonderfully named, Zazie Beetz.
The Forever Purge – One night a year not enough Purging for ya? Now you can Purge every day! About time.
Mare of Easttown – Excellent series fonds Kate Winslett as a detective in a small town. Won all the awards.
Masquerade – Home invasion horror number.
Never Gonna Snow Again – Polish comedy/drama finds a Russian-speaking immigrant working as a masseur in Poland where he becomes a guru-like figure in a wealthy gated community. Hijinks of a comical nature, I presume, ensue.
The Nevers Season 1 – Cool-looking HBO sci-fi series follows a gang of Victorian women who have some special abilities! Don’t know what they are but I do know a way to find out!
Resident Alien Season 1 – The wonderful Alan Tudyk is an alien who crash-lands in (Vancouver) a small town and takes on the identity of a doctor in this highly rated comedy series.
Rififi in Paris – Did not know that there was a sequel to the amazing Rififi! Now I do.
Space Jam: New Legacy – Lebron James steps into Michael Jordan’s air shoes for another run at this thing.
