2012 was an awesome year. We saw lots of growth as our Facebook community reached over 22,000 fans and our Twitter Community reaching over 21,000 fans every day. We obviously have a strong readership on the site serving up millions of page views each and every month.
We are a fan site run by fans and for horror fans just like you and have been since 2004. We will continue to be run this way until the day I either die or retire. Lets hope the latter.
In 2012 there was a lot of fun news items and we have done a lot of Top lists rounding up 2012 but this time I wanted to share what you all liked so much you shared it on Twitter, Pinterest, Stumbeupon and Facebook. This is our list of the Most Shared Horror News Items of 2012 and the stuff that you all made go viral. Every time you share a news item link socially we thank you because it tells us you appreciated it. So without further ado here are the 10 Most Shared Horror Movie News Items of 2012.
Its Official – Julianne Moore Is Carrie’s Mother : I have a major crush on Julianne Moore so when it was announced she would star in the upcoming Carrie movie I was excited. Clearly given it was one of the most shared horror news items of 2012 I was not alone.
Chucky’s Back! Universal Announces Curse of Chucky : Not really sure we need another Chucky movie since they have pretty much run their course for me but obviously I was alone in this thinking since you all ate it right up. ( bad ass poster from Zsoltyn )
Michael Berryman & Bill Moseley Team Up For TV Series Hell Hunters : Honestly whether it’s a new movie, a tv show or selling BBQ’s at home depot anything that Bill Moseley does is all good in my books.
ThanksKilling 2 Will Be Set In Space! : This is the movie that made a phrase and a poultry killer a part of horror pop culture. Gobble Gobble Mother F**kers.
Freddy’s Back! Official Teaser Trailer & Poster for ‘Son of a Hundred Maniacs’ : One of our community members crapped all over me for posting a ‘crap fan movie’ and frankly I do not give a damn sir. We support indie filmmaking in all forms whether its short films like this one or indie films. Clearly since you all shared it with your friends I was not alone.
First Photo From Greg McLean’s Crawlspace : Greg McLean has a massive fan following from his work on Wolf Creek and I like a lot of you have been waiting forever for his next project. When the first photo from his new film Crawlspace hit the web you all wanted to pass it on.
Is Halloween Being Remade… Again!? Everyone remember when Rob Zombie was quoted by a press outlet saying that people who make remakes are…. well… you probably know the rest. He is not involved in the plans for yes.. another Halloween reboot ( in 3D no less I am sure ) but I always think of Rob Zombie whenever I hear about another remake.
Possible Trick R Treat Sequel Ahead : Trick R Treat is one of the best horror anthologies ever made. In my humble opinion it is also one of the best modern horror movies of all time. Some may not agree but when a potential sequel was discussed you all made it go viral.
Guillermo del Toro & Ron Perlman are Ready for Hellboy III : Hellboy has never been my thing but my fellow writer Goon is a complete Hellboy fanboy. So I am pretty sure that he just like the rest of you was extremely excited for the talk of Hellboy 3.
