Top 7 Halloween Themed TV Show Episodes
Posted by DarkwingMantis | Posted 294 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 [...]

Halloween Horror Movie Marathon Suggestions
Posted by Herner Klenthur | Posted 297 days ago.
It’s Halloween which means its our favorite time of the year where we have all kinds of bonus reasons to do nothing but watch copious amounts of horror movies. Sitting down and building a list of excellent Halloween horror movies is no simple task. Just limiting the list to under 50 films is a challenge [...]

Under The Radar: 5 Great Horror Films Worth Watching
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 298 days ago.
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 [...]

5 Unexpectedly Bad Horror Movies
Posted by PoppaScotch | Posted 303 days ago.
Very recently, I wrote a piece about horror  films that completely caught me off guard when it came down to the surprisingly great quality department.  This is one of the many great things about the horror genre that we all know and love.  I would bet that every horror fan has had similar experiences where [...]

7 Actual True Story Horror Movies
Posted by Herner Klenthur | Posted 305 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 [...]

15 Best Supernatural Ghost Story Movies
Posted by Cineniche | Posted 315 days ago.
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 315 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 315 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. Sometimes, they just don’t get any media attention/marketing at all. Some film makers just make the movie, and then they run out [...]

The Top 5 Takashi Miike Films
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 346 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 352 days ago.
We have plenty of horror greats: Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees and Michael Myers to name an obvious few. But we wouldn’t know that they are the best unless we had villains on the other end of the spectrum to compare them with. Thus, we also have the worst – they’re birthed from the most arbitrary [...]

10 Best Horror Movies Nobody Ever Mentions!
Posted by DarkwingMantis | Posted 366 days ago.
Hello everyone *reaches up and tips his hat*, the name is Mike Mitchell but you can call me DarkwingMantis. Some of you may know me, some may not. I’ve been an on again – off again presence in the online horror community for many years now and am excited to jump back in the saddle [...]

Top 10 Horror Themed Music Videos
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 368 days ago.
There is only one thing I am more fanatical about than horror… Music! So when an artist decides to blend horror into their music video, I am happier than Rob Schneider when an Adam Sandler script calls for an “antisocial loser”. It’s probably a tough decision to make a “red band” video as an artist, [...]

The 8 Best Horror Television Shows
Posted by BrideOfChucky | Posted 373 days ago.
As much as I adore horror movies, I really enjoy horror TV shows. I am one of those people who have no problem sacrificing a day at the beach, for a day snuggling up in my bed and watching an entire series at once—Netflix and HBO Go are my best friends. I decided to put [...]

7 Best Horror Films From Under The Radar
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 373 days ago.
It is physically impossible for every movie that gets made to be shown in theaters. Its also not possible for every movie to be mass marketed. This fact, was at one point, a huge problem for indie film-makers. But as of late, with internet-word-of-mouth, you can get even the smallest indie film a huge amount [...]

Top 10 Horror Films That are Not Horror
Posted by DeadHorse13 | Posted 386 days ago.
Horror films by literal definition are movies that elicit the emotion of fear or terror from the viewer. Their plots normally involve the central themes of death, violence, psychosis, the supernatural, the unexplained, or science gone awry to name just a few usual suspects. However, the Horror genre doesn’t have an exclusive stranglehold on our [...]

37 Incredible Minimalist Horror Posters
Posted by TheM | Posted 392 days ago.
I am a massive fan of Minimalist horror movie posters and for the last three days I have been scouring google collecting posters and as much as possible the creators name.

One of the greatest American Horror and Sci-Fi authors of all time has passed away at the age of 87.  Richard Matheson wrote some incredibly influential novels such as I am Legend, The Shrinking Man, A Stir of Echoes, Hell House, Somewhere in Time and What Dreams May Come just to name a few.  Several [...]

Top Ten Zombie Movie Head Shots
Posted by Carrion | Posted 404 days ago.
What is the best part about a zombie movie? Some say it’s the fiendish way in which the living get torn apart and eaten by the dead. Those in favour of the human race will say it’s the creative and gruesome ways that we dispatch the re-animated. Personally, I don’t really care, as long as [...]
