Written by Jason McDonald, September 28, 2014
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?

6 Iconic Horror Characters with Almost No Screen Time
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, September 28, 2014
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

15 Best Supernatural Ghost Story Movies
Written by Cineniche, September 28, 2014
With everyone seeing Insidious Chapter 2 this weekend I thought we could count down 15 other ghost stories to keep up at night.  It is interesting that a lot of good ghost films feature boys who see dead people. #15: Two Thousand Maniacs (1964) The godfather of gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis takes us on an

7 Most Terrifying Horror Films Of All Time
Written by PoppaScotch, September 28, 2014
Us horror goons are a sick group of people.  We watch films that most of society disregards because they contain scenes of rampant sex and violence that we find entertaining.  Movies that leave the masses scared to death on Halloween are our Tuesday night time-wasters.

Chilling & Must See Found Footage Horror Movies
Written by Jared, September 25, 2014
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

New Perspective: The Lost Boys As A Homosexual Film
Written by CineNiche, September 18, 2014
  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

Written by Stephanie Joyce, August 30, 2014
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

Horror Sidekick Spotlight: Peter Lorre
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, August 30, 2014
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 7 Horror Movie Weapons: Mass Destruction
Written by Stephanie Joyce, August 29, 2014
You had a bad day. Everyone has them. But what do you do when a dark and dreary evil unleashes some demonic force (as most dark and dreary evils do) and you are surrounded by hellish beings whose sole-existence is bent on your destruction? No, you can’t reach for your favorite blanket or comfort food…

Cannibalism, Sexuality and Zombies, Exploring The Walking Dead
Written by Stephanie Joyce, August 27, 2014
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
