The Black Dog Newsletter: “Is it Still January Edition!”

Is it me or does this month (January) feel like it’s been going on for decades? Maybe it’s the post-holiday blues, maybe it’s Covid fatigue, maybe it’s folks who still don’t know how to wear a mask, who knows? Anyhoo, just a reminder that prices go up next week (just a little – you won’t even notice) and that we’ll be closed on Saturday February 16th for a film shoot. Plan Accordingly.

Oh! There’s a new podcast up and ready to entertain your brains! The gang traversed down to the Rio a week or so ago and took in Soylent Green! Here’s our impressions.


New Releases!
(There’s so many I couldn’t fit them all here!)


Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road – Here’s another top-notch doc about your favourite Beach Boy.

Ema – From Pablo Larrain (Jackie, Spencer) comes this cool as buttons film about a marriage falling apart after an adoption goes south. Includes dancing and sex.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife – At least this one has Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd!

I’m Your Man – Woman must live with a handsome robot for some reason in this comedy sci-fi number. Stars Cousin Matthew aka Dan Stevens.

Mainstream – Dating in the digital world can be strange. Just ask Andrew Garfield.

New York Ninja – Filming started in 1984 and wrapped last year on this wonderfully crazy film about, well, a ninja in New York. Can’t wait! Blu Ray only.

Slumber Party Massacre – Remake of the classic 80s film where an uninvited guy shows up at a sorority slumber party with a large drill. And he’s not there to install the cabinets or hang the drapes!

Spine of Night – Twisted, trippy, violent animated fare looks tres cool, man.

Swan Song – Friend of the shop and cult movie hero, Udo Kier, stars as a flamboyant hairdresser who walks across town to style a dead woman’s hair.

Together – Couple have a tough time dealing with Covid lock-down. Supposed to be pretty darn good!

WCBN and the American Revolution – Sweet-looking doc about a maverick radio station in the late 60’s/early 70s. Love these type of films.

Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched – Former Black Dogger Kier-la Janisse’s exhaustive study of folk horror throughout the ages. Won all kinds of awards. Makes me feel like a proud papa! We also have the massive box-set (12 blu rays), featuring many of the films mentioned in the doc, for sale. I may keep it for rental if enough folks are interested.

Coming Soon!

Summer of Soul
Clifford the Big Red Dog
The Antichrist
The Dry

That’s it for this week folks. Everyone be good to everyone out there.
