Top 25 Best Serial Killer Movies of All Time

seven-header

Writing a list of top serial killer films is a rather massive undertaking. While this list is limited to 25, the amount of true serial killer films ranges well over 200. There is also alot of contradiction as to what really constitutes a serial killer film. (For instance if a madman traps a bunch of kids on a house and kills them all, is he a serial killer…or just a lousy host??)

Now if you … Continue reading

Top 15 Giant Monster Movies

top-Giant-monster-movies-horrornewsnet

Whether you are a new comer or an old hat, you gottta give it up for horror’s giant monsters. Maybe it originates from the “Jack and the Bean Stalk” days or simply seeing a gorilla climb one of America’s largest buildings. Who’s to say. For me, it was those crazy Asians and their monster suits stomping over buildings and electric cables. Still till this day we are fascinated with things that appear very large in … Continue reading

Top 10 Rock ‘n Roll Horror Movies

trickortreat

Upon contemplating my next list, it was quickly apparent to me that there wasn’t much in he way of horror lists involving fictional rock bands / performers as the centerpiece. Not so much real artists like Kiss (though I’ve still included it), or Dee Snider, but horror films centered around the rock act as the main horror antagonist. “Trick or Treat” being a perfect example. Now the usage of the word “top” is rather subjective … Continue reading

Film Review: Céline And Julie Go Boating (1974)

SYNOPSIS:
“A mysteriously linked pair of young women find their daily lives pre-empted by a strange boudoir melodrama that plays itself out in a hallucinatory parallel reality.” (courtesy IMDB)

REVIEW:
Fantasy takes much of its vividness from dualisms, tensions between opposites, often symbolised by the meeting of two different kinds of world. A similar tension to that between modern and ancient is that between the rational and the irrational, the routine versus … Continue reading
