13 HORROR VILLAINS THAT COULD ACTUALLY KILL YOU
Now we all know horror movies are just that, movies, and the characters on screen could never actually come into our bedrooms and kill us‚Ä¶or could they? Now I‚Äôm not talking about the [...]

We got a small comment on one of our trailers today, and it got me to THINKING about a short article that I’ve been holding off on. Namely, it’s this Internet issue with trailers. Now, my first comment would be that there is no issue, as we love trailers and love to be able to do a quick query on any title to find one.
Folks, there are ALOT of film trailers created, being created … Continue reading
13. Time After Time (1979)
This movie makes the list even though it isn‚Äôt really a horror movie. It isn‚Äôt scary at all, actually, but the plot, while a bit cheesy at times, also contains a bit of genius, including its star Malcolm McDowell. Here‚Äôs the deal: the notion of a serial killer is not a modern one. Jack the Ripper, while arguably the most famous serial killer, is not modern … Continue reading
If you are a horror genre connoisseur, you already know that it helps to break the ice with an occasional horror comedy. This of course is most effective when done right. As I contemplated a top list, it occurred to me that 10 wouldn’t be enough, so with that said I am presenting the Top 10 Horror Comedies knowing full well that there are more than 10 that just wont make this list. It’s probably … Continue reading
So far you’ve seen films and have played games with the undead, now you can feed your head with some good old fashioned zombie literature! Lets get started:
Marvel Zombies (2005-Present)
Synopsis: A comic book meta-series, Marvel Zombies introduces us to our favorite heroes in a unique way. The series features zombified versions of Marvel Universe superheroes. Marvel Zombies started out as a limited series by Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips. The … Continue reading
As fans of the horror genre, we find ourselves in something of a unique position. Where many so-called ‚ÄėGenre Classics‚Äô in other areas of cinema and literature tend to date and lose some of their lustre (be it due to societal changes in the way issues are perceived, the technology used in the making of the films or whatever), while there are countless examples of horror films that have not only dated … Continue reading
It would be useless to try and rank Bruce Campbell‚Äôs films for two reasons: 1) There‚Äôd be whiners commenting about the merits of each of the Evil Dead films and why they should each be number one, and 2) You can‚Äôt quantify that much greatness. As such, even though I numbered them, this list is really in no particular order.
13. From Dusk Till Dawn II: Texas Blood Money (1999)
The best part of … Continue reading
Now that Underworld: Awakening has been released and bitten into by fans around the world, the question is arising as to where the franchise will go next, if anywhere. While Underworld: Awakening is certainly a complete film in its own right, the story is left wide open for a fifth instalment. Questions are left unanswered, a few plot points are left unresolved, and all seems to be in place for another adventure. … Continue reading
There are many scientific theories and ancient prophecies predicting a massive global (and perhaps even a solar system wide) event to occur on the Winter Solstice of 2012. The theories and predictions and any current events that may correlate with them as we approach the purposed end date are met with healthy skepticism, as they should. While we should consider any and all events that may affect us and Earth, we do … Continue reading
As the founder and CEO of Horrornews.net, I can say it’s been an interesting ride seeing, watching and receiving so many horror films per month. I imagine that other sites who offer the same are also pretty inundated with a mailbox full of screeners. For those who don’t run horror sites, I’m sure you are wondering how it all works and what the process is. After all, there hasn’t been a book … Continue reading
Our environment, our world is basically our reality and human impact is affecting its stability. Many speculate that we are approaching a tipping point with the future our existence because of the impact our species has made, and continues to make on the planet with minimal environmental concern. Other speculation concerning the date 12/21/2012 and life on this planet experiencing an evolution of consciousness, fuels interest in confronting the negatives features of our actions as … Continue reading
Solar Activity and Magnetic Pole Shift
Of the many subjects included in the growing 2012 theories, those concerning an increase of solar activity and a magnetic polar shift may be the most lethal to mankind as well as the most realistic. Their possibility of affecting/destroying life on earth is backed by extensive scientific evidence that magnetic polar shifts have occurred numerous times before in earth‚Äôs history and that they will happen again.
The magnetic field … Continue reading
It has been stated by the BBFC that The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence, has been refused a certification and thus cannot be legally released in the UK. The sequel to the recent horror hit is stylistically different from the first, in that it uses the first film as a piece of fiction rather than actual events. In it, the main character becomes ‚Äúsexually obsessed‚ÄĚ with the film and replicating the onscreen … Continue reading
Once more, an evening has been most enhanced by a viewing of Shaun of the Dead. It’s a film that continues to improve with age, and is still a very long way away from having its delights dulled by the passage of time. The amazing thing is that it came out seven years ago (already? Crikey), and that no matter how many times it finds itself on our screen, it still entertains … Continue reading
Horror movies typically have strong male characters that are protecting all of the innocent, frail and scared female characters.¬†It is far and few between that horror fans see a woman as the lead in a horror movie, but when they come around, ohhhh man, what a great film it usually is.¬†
Let‚Äôs face it, what guy doesn‚Äôt want to see a woman kicking some zombie ass, or chopping the heads off of aliens, all while … Continue reading
I‚Äôve been thinking lately about in-references within horror movies (you know, like how in Evil Dead there‚Äôs a ripped poster for The Hills Have Eyes in the cellar and in A Nightmare on Elm St. Nancy watches Evil Dead to try and stay awake). One of the people whose referential talents cannot be matched is Edgar Wright, co-writer/director of Shaun of the Dead and, most recently, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. His … Continue reading
13. I Walked with a Zombie (1943)
This movie is basically Jane Eyre in the West Indies with a touch of voodoo thrown in and it relies mostly on merging the dichotomies it spent so long building up: voodoo/Christian, black/white, dead/alive, magic/science. This sense of ambiguity is the only unsettling force in a too-literal plot and otherwise tame film.
12. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Yes, the remake is better (two words, … Continue reading
There are dark and strange things afoot, which for folks like us is a wonderful thing. Something is bubbling back up to the surface of the moviegoing consciousness, something special. With films such as Black Swan and Amer in recent times bringing a sense of surreal and artistic nastiness to a film climate awash with torture p*rn and artless schlock, are we seeing the resurgence of the Giallo tropes that made that … Continue reading
