Home Invasion Films Get Us Where We Live
Written by MovieMaven, Posted 129 Days Ago. | No Comments
The recent string of home invasion films like The Strangers, Them and Inside got me thinking about the terror behind it all. Of course they each have their own brand of psychological teasers that touch different people in different ways, but the basic idea is the same. Your haven is no longer a place of [...]

Let’s Talk About Sex & Horror Movies
Written by MovieMaven, Posted 129 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
Tonight I’m feeling a little….naughty. Let’s just say I’m in a good mood. So let’s talk about sex. Sex and horror. But I am not simply referring to the bare-breasted girls prancing about seventies grindhouse films. From the sensuality of gothic vampires imbibing on life-giving fluids with the intimacy of a hickie-gone-wild to the doomed [...]

Written by MovieMaven, Posted 129 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Time again for the Top Ten. This week I am taking the list in a different direction. We all know who the hot chicks are in horror. Hell, that’s all we hear about. But who are the guys who get our blood boiling? I’ve spent some time mulling this over. I must first preface this [...]

While Maven’s recent Top Ten Horror Hunks article was a big hit with the ladies of the site, I figured why not give the guys a treat and come up with some “Top Ten Horror Hotties”. There are definitely many roles to choose from and it wasnt easy. I actually recruited several HM members to give me [...]

Top Ten Horror Movie Sidekicks
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 130 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
Oh, horror sidekicks: the true unsung heroes and heroines of the genre. Sometimes, they hang around just to play best friend to the protagonist, offering moral support and possibly supplying an extra tally mark to the final body count. Other times, these bastions of storytelling stop by to wreak havoc as they serve the side [...]

Thrills and Chills- Let’s Get Extreme
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 135 Days Ago. | No Comments
EXTREEEME! I love when anything describes itself as being “extreme.”  When I hear that word my mind draws connections to the 90’s and I start to envision bright neon colors and skateboarding kids living life to the max. I fully support more things being labeled as “extreme.” I mean, would you rather have “nachos” or [...]

What Is Wrong With Modern Horror?
Written by MovieMaven, Posted 142 Days Ago. | 11 Comments
What is Wrong with Modern Horror? A question often asked, and a question often answered on our boards. As much as I love horror films of all types and subgenres, there are several gripes that I have as a fan of horror in relation to modern, mainstream horror movies. Of course everyone within shouting distance [...]

Must See Horror Films of the 1970s — Part Two
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 142 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
As promised last week, here is Part Two of the Must See Horror Movies of the 1970s.  The competition for the final few spots was fierce, and yes, I did exclude a number of highly respected horror films (sorry, Deep Red and Deathdream fans).  If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Part One, [...]

Thrills and Chills- The Power of Imagination
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 149 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
It was a slow week in the world of roller coasters.  There weren’t any POV videos of titillating new roller coasters and there certainly weren’t any exciting announcements.  I considered the possibility of not posting an article today.  However, my Mom always encouraged me to think outside of the box when I was presented with [...]

Zombie Zeitgeist: The Influences & Culture of Zombie Movies
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), Posted 149 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
From its humble beginnings in 1968, the zombie film has flourished into an international phenomenon. In the hands of its inventor George A. Romero, the films were full of social commentary. Whether those themes were racism, consumerism, military infiltration, terrorism, or simply the bleak nihilistic vision of humanity; Romero made his voice heard through the [...]

Woman Power in Horror Movies: Top 10 Female Horror Roles
Written by BlackTequilaKiss, Posted 149 Days Ago. | 18 Comments
Ever since horror movies, a certain label has existed: The women play the damsel in distress and the men typically are the heroes of the day. But as the years pass, horror has changed. This mantra that once existed has long disappeared. Since the 70’s and before, the woman protagonist has become a more prevalent [...]

Top Ten Sympathetic Horror Killers
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 152 Days Ago. | 9 Comments
Not all horror movie murderers are created equal. From the reticent Jason Voorhees who toils away at the thankless job of slaughtering campers to the gleeful Freddy Krueger who revels in every tally mark he gains when murdering a Springwood teen, plenty of killers seem perfectly suited to their vocations. But in the annals of [...]

Written by Scott Dell, Posted 162 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
No one walked away from the gang rape of The Last House on The Left without a deep scar, knowing full well, “I can’t un-see this.” It was disturbing, and it was all too real. Real, this key word is where the horror films of the 1970’s stood out against everything else in the horror [...]

Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 168 Days Ago. | 9 Comments
This month marks the fortieth anniversary of Stephen King’s debut novel, Carrie. While this article technically missed the official anniversary back on the 5th, I’ve found myself pondering a certain ineradicable loner ever since learning of the ceremonious four-decade occasion. What is it about the 1974 book that has inspired countless reprints, four films, and [...]

4 Reasons Horror Has the Best Directors in Hollywood
Written by Gwendolyn Kiste, Posted 172 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
Horror gets a bad rap.  As a fan of the genre, you probably already realize this.  Non-aficionados throw out wild accusations like “It doesn’t take any talent to make a horror movie.  Anyone can do it!” or “All you care about in a movie is blood and boobs”.  Okay, for some of us, that last [...]
