Midnight Rec: 6 Films to Keep You Awake (DVD)

As a quick update, I figured out the s p a c i n g issue. Ctrl+ Shift + Spacebar switches the language input, but confirms the change by s p l i t t i n g the text before shifting to a plethora of options in character based languages (I recognize the Japanese and Korean characters, but that's all I can identify for certain). So that's that. I knew it had to be a keystroke issue. Also FYI: the IMDB Horror Board Book Club picked it's second title: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. So, if your library's like mine, head over to your YA section and pick up an extremely disturbing novel that probably should be shelved with adult books. It's a very fast read and the discussion works better with more participants. Onwards and Upwards: Midnight Rec: 6 Films to Keep You Awake (DVD) I apologize for linking to Best Buy's description, but the IMDB link is impossible to navigate. 6 Films to Keep You Awake was a 2006 television series on Spain similar to Masters of Horror. 6 directors worked on 6 separate horror films to air in a 6 episode series on TV. Unlike Masters of Horror, these films are long enough that, instead of airing on TV, they could have seen a commercial theatrical release. The main reason for the rec is actually related to Best Buy. They currently have the 3 Disc set for only 19.99+tax. That's a good deal. Each of the six films is very different from every other film in the series, so there genuinely is something for everyone. If you like foreign horror, and embrace the Spanish horror revival (battling it out with the French horror revival for the new source of all things remade in US horror - sorry Japan, the creepy haired ghosts adaptations of every film aren't selling tickets like they used to), give it a shot.
