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 658 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 658 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 688 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 695 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 [...]

Top 10 Horror Themed Music Videos
Posted by Christopher Horton | Posted 711 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 716 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 716 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 728 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.

Top Ten Zombie Movie Head Shots
Posted by Carrion | Posted 746 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 [...]

Eight Horror Movie Cliches That Are Getting Old
Posted by BrideOfChucky | Posted 752 days ago.
Clichés. Elements that have been used so many times they have lost meaning. Or in the case of horror, lost the element of surprise and creepiness. Maybe I’m alone on this one, but it definitely takes away from the scary-factor when I already know what’s gonna happen. I get that not all movies are going [...]

Five Reasons Why Warm Bodies Doesn’t “Ruin the Zombie Genre”
Posted by Matt-suzaka | Posted 760 days ago.
1. Zombies Aren’t Real I’ve heard all the arguments from people who claim to be zombie purists (whatever that means): “Zombies don’t fall in love!” “Zombies don’t have feelings!” “Zombies are meant to kill people and eat their flesh!” “Zombies don’t look like that!” Sorry guys, but zombies aren’t real, therefore THERE ARE NO RULES!
