True Story Horror Movies, How True Are They?
Posted by Captain Howdy | Posted 360 days ago.
If there’s one thing more abundant in horror films than elaborate death scenes and nudity, it would be clichés. Don’t have sex; never wander off alone; don’t stand up to the guy in the mask. The one cliché that tops them all in terms of ridiculousness, however, is the simple tagline “Based on True Events.” [...]

Top 7 Halloween Themed TV Show Episodes
Posted by DarkwingMantis | Posted 360 days ago.
Growing up as a kid from the late 80’s / early 90’s, Halloween was always a favorite season for me. Scores of horror movies would be out for the season and everyone would run to the theater each time to see the latest scare fest. However, I grew up kind of poor and didn’t have [...]

Horror is the angry, readheaded stepchild of the movie industry. EVERYONE likes a good love story, which is why “Titanic” made millions not once, but twice in theaters. The general public actually endured this three hour plus tale of love aboard a doomed ocean-liner, multiple times at the theater. And what about comedy? People love to [...]

7 Actual True Story Horror Movies
Posted by Herner Klenthur | Posted 371 days ago.
I despise True Story Horror Movies that end up being 90% B.S. Or in the case of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre pretty much near 100% crap. Don’t get me wrong I like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre but saying it is based on a true story is like saying The Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny [...]

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 [...]

15 Best Slasher Movies From the 80’s / 90’s
Posted by Cineniche | Posted 381 days ago.
To compose a list of favorite slasher films you must set a few ground rules first. Are you going to include Mario Bava’s Twitch Of The Death Nerve (1971) which created the prototype? Do you list Last House On The Left (1972) due to its penchant for violence? How about some love for Black Christmas [...]

7 Best Horror Films From Under The Radar
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 381 days ago.
A couple of months ago I wrote an article about some films that might have been missed (“7 Best Films From Under The Radar“). It’s easy to miss so many great indie films.

The Top 5 Takashi Miike Films
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 411 days ago.
Love him or hate him, Takashi Miike is here to stay. Miike has been at the helm of many controversial films, and has a penchant for seeing just how far he can take his subject matter without going completely over the edge. But just because he regularly pushes the boundaries of censorship, doesn’t mean he [...]

Top 10 Worst Horror Villains
Posted by Stacy Buchanan | Posted 418 days ago.
We have plenty of horror greats: Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers to name an obvious few.
