Horror Movie Critic Wanted!

Herner Klenthur

We are actively seeking a word ninja (or ninjas ) to join the ranks of Horror-Movies.ca, the leading horror site by fans and for fans.

Specifically, we are looking for somebody who will review films. This is a very important position on the site as you will be the voice of reason on what is worth seeing, what is not worth seeing, and help our community decide where and when to spend their money!

The position requires a commitment of a few hours a week and best of all you will get to expose your writing to almost a million monthly readers.


  • Must be of legal age.
  • Must be serious and willing to write.
  • Must be able to work without supervision.
  • Must have an insane desire to review every film you can get your hands on.

If you are interested, please email scoops@horror-movies.ca with a sample of your work and a quick word on why you think you would be a great fit for our site. If you have applied in the past, please feel free to re-apply. I will do my best to answer everyone who applies, but given I currently have 841 unopened emails in my inbox, I can’t guarantee every applicant will hear from me.

Key requirements of the job are: a great attitude, a love for horror, the ability to express your love for horror coherently, and the willingness to make a serious mark in the horror community.

Because we all do this for the love of it and are not paid, it is VERY important you have a fun and positive attitude! If you are reading this and do not feel you’re the best choice as a critic but could help with news, weekly columns, or dirty laundry, feel free to submit anyway and tell us how you can help us be that much better and we will definitely consider you!


Our policy for commenting is simple. If you troll or post spam or act like a child we will send you to your room without dinner and take away your posting priviledges. Have fun, be polite!

        I’d love to try but I’ve got no reviews right now and I’m in the middle of finals.
        What’s the last day to submit my work?

        I review movies consistently, and sometimes even see them in advanced or early, but does this job only require reviews of horror flicks?

        • Herner Klenthur December 30, 2012 at 3:49 pm

          We are a horror site so horror films are what we are interested in. Our sister site would be interested in mainstream ones. Email scoops@horror-movies.ca

        I’m in. Where do I sign? :-) I’ve been looking for an opportunity like this for years. If I can get a review to you in the next couple of days will you seriously consider me? Ash

        • Herner Klenthur December 31, 2012 at 6:01 pm

          Yes we will. But keep in mind we want serious folks. We are all part time volunteers but we take this job serious and bust our balls to deliver content for our ravenous readers. :)

          Hi Herner
          I hear you… I will match your enthusiasm and take it very seriously. I work better with deadlines. What would you require from me exactly? Would you tell me the titles to watch? How many would you expect me to review?
          Kind regards

          Hi Herner
          Did you receive my review? I sent it to the scoop email address. Thanks.
          Kind regards

        Hi there, I would be interested in doing reviews, although I have no experience in writing reviews I would consider my passion and love for horror movies would put me in good ranks. I am on a mission to find the ultimate horror movie that will give me those heart pumping thrills, I watch at least 10 movies a week and have to keep changing video stores as I have seen most of what they have to offer. I only really watch horror as love and romance movies gross me out more than human centerpede 2 .

        Hi I was wondering if you were still looking for movie reviewers?

        Hey I’m comfortable writing movie/comic/product reviews. I’d like to email you a sample of my work?

        I was wondering whether the horror critic position was still open for application. I’ve already sent over an email application as well but would just like to state my interest in the position. I’ve written for many online sources over the past year or so, the current one being New York Minute Magazine where I cover movie and television recommendations on a bi-weekly basis. I’ve had extensive experience with staying to deadlines in that environment but more importantly, I love the horror movie genre, personally being one of those crazed zombie fans as well as just enjoying the whole element of surprise and slow build and anticipation that comes with the genre. Would really like to hear back from you if still available,


        • Herner Klenthur April 5, 2014 at 7:51 pm

          Yes it is.

        • Pavle April 5, 2014 at 8:28 pm

          Alright that’s great to hear, how can we touch base in order to see if there would be a match for the future? In terms of my movie and television publications, my work at New York Minute Magazine for movies and television can be found at:

        can you review just specific genre in horror like slashers? Because I love slasher and twisted distrubing stuff like that and how much do you get paid?
