Black Dog Video Newsletter October 13th to 19th “International Video Store Day Edition. Oh and Get Out and Vote Edition!”


I hope that everyone had a swell Thanksgiving weekend. Much feasting and merriment was enjoyed in these parts (maybe a little too much). And of course giving thanks. Apart from the usual being thankful for the health and happiness of my family and friends, I’m very thankful for the fact that we are still here. This coming Saturday marks the 5th annual International Video Store Day. While many of you might think, “Is that really a thing?” I can assure that it is. As much as International Record Store Day, International Cheeseburger Day or Christmas. It’s a day to celebrate…read more

On a completely different note, I’m sure that you’re all aware of the impending election. If you are interested you can check out my take on the whole shebang here. Vote early and vote often!

Oh and one more thing – check out our 31 Days of Halloween horror film recommendations here. If you dare! Mwah-hah-hah!

New Releases


Ascension – Sci-fi miniseries about the quest to populate a new world and how a woman’s murder figures into the mix. Looks interesting (and serious) with everyone looking sternly into the future!


The Gallows – Yet another found footage horror film that finds some students ill-advised plans to resurrect a play 20 years after a tragic accident befell it. It doesn’t go well. Fools, what did you think was going to happen?


Mad Men: Final Season Part 2 – The last episodes in this amazing series – one of the best ever me thinks – finds Don Draper and the rest of the crew moving around and talking and being awesome. Spoiler alert – I didn’t expect there to be aliens involved. And what was with that Sasquatch? That was weird.


San Andreas – The Rock shows up to destroy Los Angles with his bare hands for some reason. Either that our he saves Los Angles after a particularly nasty earthquake. Don’t know as I haven’t seen it yet. More apocalypse porn for your hungry eyes.


Wayward Pines Season 1 – Cool, locally shot, Twin Peaksish mystery show finds agent Matt Dillon (and occasional Black Dog video customer) investigating the disappearance of two agents in the weird little town of Wayward Pines. Good stuff!


We Are Still Here – Nice looking little horror number about an ancient evil that resides in a scary house and demands a sacrifice every 30 years. I wonder how that effects the property value?
