6 Iconic Horror Characters with Almost No Screen Time
Posted by Gwendolyn Kiste | Posted 83 days ago.
As a horror fan, you may sometimes feel like you’re spending more time with simpering victims instead of unflappable villains. And you’re probably right. Filmmakers like to deceive viewers with a litany of lead-up scares but no actual reveal. Other times, we hear swathes of back story about certain diabolical characters before they’re introduced, which [...]

In all forms of entertainment there exist three types of creatures which are utilized to extract sympathy from a viewer: the elderly, small kids, and dogs.  If your movie needs a cheap emotional pull to get people invested in it, you simply inject one of those three in to it and you’re bound to tug [...]

Posted by Gwendolyn Kiste | Posted 89 days ago.
Horror is the hydra of film genres; watch one movie and two more will already be shot, edited, and released for your viewing.  But we all know that not every flick out of the gore-covered gate will proceed to the pantheon of horror, so the ones that do become even more meaningful.  As for those [...]

How My Childhood Love of The Horror Genre Started
Posted by Michael Allen | Posted 89 days ago.
‘Why do you like these kind of films?’ my girlfriend asked me the other day while we were watching (or, rather, I was making her watch) a particular gruesome scene in Frankenstein’s Army (2013).

5 Best Horror Siege Movies
Posted by PoppaScotch | Posted 90 days ago.
There are few things in life that are more satisfying than a great siege film.  With horror films it may be a little difficult to distinguish the classic “haunted house” film from a siege movie, but the difference is the motivation for being stuck in the enclosed area. Siege films can be defined as films [...]

Living in Eastern Pennsylvania, we usually get a few good snowfalls each winter.  Usually this trend starts some time after thanksgiving and usually doesn’t hit the full stride until about February.

Happy New Year everyone! With the end of 2013, everyone who posts online reveals their lists. I’m no different.

Top 10 Modern Day Horror Villians
Posted by GingerSnap | Posted 105 days ago.
I am a big fan of the horror villains that came out in the 1980′s, but we don’t seem to give credit to modern horror villains.  As we have been in the remake/reboot kick as of late, we tend to forget about the serial killers that were originally created to follow in the footsteps  of [...]
