Forgotten Horror Gem: The Monster Club
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 4 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
As a continuation of my Forgotten Horror Gem series, today we return to 1981 when horror remained in its heyday and old-school actors still made regular appearances in seemingly random films.

Written by Ben Mueller, Posted 18 Days Ago. | 8 Comments
The original Saw celebrates its 10-year anniversary this Halloween, with a special midnight rerelease of the film that launched the most successful horror franchise of all time. That’s ten years of getting “Hello Zepp” stuck in your head, not understanding about a million plot flashbacks, and wondering just what the hell Cary Elwes was doing with himself, both on [...]

Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 24 Days Ago. | No Comments
It may be September, but the Halloween season is in full swing here in California.  Over the years the business of scaring people has boomed and many theme parks and attractions are looking to cash in on this by opening up their holiday haunts earlier and earlier.  Am I complaining? Hell no.  I just can’t [...]

Chilling & Must See Found Footage Horror Movies
Written by Jared, Posted 27 Days Ago. | 8 Comments
I have no problems admitting I’m an absolute sucker for found footage-style films.  The problem is, as with most horror genres, you have to watch a lot of really awful movies to find a good one, but once you find that perfectly crafted film, oh man is it worth it!  In my opinion (and I hope [...]

Happy Birthday Stephen King: A History of Stephen King Film Adaptations
Written by PoppaScotch, Posted 32 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
It’s extremely hard to dispute the fact that Stephen King hasn’t had an effect on all things horror since his first novel Carrie was released back in 1974.  In the time since, Stephen King has became an international success and the recipient of much deserved critical acclaim.  His first novel Carrie was also his first [...]

New Perspective: The Lost Boys As A Homosexual Film
Written by CineNiche, Posted 34 Days Ago. | 7 Comments
  Carl Jung spoke of the wanderer archetype, which states certain people are destined to wonder the world seeking meaning, but normally never finding it. Vampires fulfill this archetype; they are beyond the bounds of society. They are on the outskirts, always forced to watch but never truly be a part of life. In Joel [...]

The fall season is almost upon us, and there is no better time of year to go on a horror movie watching marathon than when the leaves are toppling from trees and the air turns crisp and bitter. But not just any film will do. While Friday the 13th and Sleepaway Camp are ideal for [...]

Horror Sidekick Spotlight: Peter Lorre
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 53 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
For the inaugural Horror Sidekick Spotlight, let’s travel back to the 1930s when cinema was still in its infancy and horror films were just getting their claws into the world’s psyche. Perhaps no actor in Hollywood history has embodied the mischievous minion quite like Peter Lorre. Arguably, his most famous films were his collaborations with Humphrey Bogart, including The [...]

Top 5 Horror Directors Who Have Gone Mainstream
Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 54 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
Who would of thought film-makers that made you double-check under your bed and your closet before you went to sleep at night would become the mainstream blockbuster power-houses that they are today. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite (or at least mine) cult-classic horror films as we trace back the roots of [...]

Written by Stephanie Joyce, Posted 58 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
They finally done it. Robert Kirkman and the crew behind The Walking Dead finally gave  the audience something to be afraid of that is perhaps more bone-chilling than the flesh-eating zombies in the first 4 seasons; free-thinking “humans” (and I use this term loosely) that choose to put their morals behind them and eat other [...]

Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 65 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
For Part Two in my Forgotten Horror Gem series, let’s travel back to the 1970s, a time when horror was in a renaissance and vampires could sparkle and still be cool. Daughters of Darkness is a 1971 English-language Belgian vampire film, a description which should tell you right there that it’s going to be something else entirely. Truth be told, [...]

Written by Jared, Posted 65 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
There are a ton of horror movie documentaries out there, and a ton of good ones at that. As a filmmaker, the cream of the crop horror documentaries are ones of the “making of” variety, ones that show the filmmaking process and just how painstaking  yet rewarding making a movie can be. Some of these [...]
