While horror in its visual, dramatic form has historically tended to reside on either the big screen or the in the bargain bucket, it would be remiss not to reminisce about those horror treats that came in to our lives via that box in the corner of your room. Hereâs our top 5 horror TV shows in no particular orderâŚ
The Twilight Zone
Responsible for a plethora of iconic stories, this spooky serial combined … Continue reading
One of the reasons slot games are so popular is the range of themes, characters and play styles available. Slot developers constantly scramble to outdo one another with their seasonal games range and flagship characters.
Microgaming, one of the worldâs largest casino networks, has an impressively spooky and extensive collection of Halloween slots released over the previous few years. In fact youâd have to imagine one of their lead designers is a huge … Continue reading
Ah, we love em, we hate em…those nasty spell-casting witches of film. Witches of cinema are figures we came to know very quickly in life. Most of us got our first dose with the all-too-familiar movie, “Wizard of Oz”. This inclusion was taken even further as we started to see more witches pop up in horror and fantasy-themed films. When we took on the task of a “top 10 witches list” we also discovered that … Continue reading
This past summer, we posted an early review of the ambitious CW superhero series “The Flash,” which has now successfully brought DC’s hyper-speed hero to television. Bringing comic book heroes to television is nothing new. In recent years we’ve seen shows like “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Gotham” using popular comic book worlds and storylines to create intriguing and action-packed dramas. Even the CW found some success with “Arrow,” which brought the DC character … Continue reading
It’s no secret that Hollywood lovesÂ capitalizing on existing name-recognition. Who wouldn’t? If you can give your movie a title that instantly appeals to the masses (or at least a large mass of the masses), then selling that movie just became a whole lot easier.
This is one reason why sequels and trilogies are so popular. If you’ve already seen The Hunger Games,Â there’s a good chance you’ll instantly know something about The Hunger Games: … Continue reading
The greatest horror movies often leave a lasting impression on its viewers, whether that be through the fear they imparted or the sheer visual impact many carry. I know many will have their particular favourites, but here are our top 5 masks in horror movie history.
The âScreamâ Mask – Scream
Endlessly parodied by many a sub-rate comedy looking for a cheap laugh and horror reference, the reputation of the âScreamâ mask and the … Continue reading
One of the great things about horror films is that they can explore themes that other genre films simply canât.Â One of hallmarks of horror is that it confronts us with horrible things. That said, this list isnât necessarily made up of the horrible things horror films have shown us, but also scenes that were so disturbing that they crossed into horrorâsome come from films that stray across genre lines.Â Also, many thanks go out to my … Continue reading
Iâve been watching horror films my entire life and as such I have seen more death scenes than I could every possibly count. Some of them have been quite fun and awesome while others were pretty lame and left a lot to be desired. There are some that really stand out for a number of reasons thanks to the fact that they are interesting or original, but the ones that always had an impact on … Continue reading
Finding gems in the rough has always been one of my greatest pleasures in dealing with the horror genre. That said, every film and its impact is experienced differently (no matter how much you may like a title). This small group of gems is among my favorite titles that “I” feel were underrated or simply dismissed in the rush of upcoming and incoming releases. As a horror web site, we know full well that every … Continue reading
The theme of incorporating a scary clown into the realm of horror begs to challenge your psyche with a character we should adore and love. Yet is exchanged with that of something twisted beyond comprehension. It’s that affinity between what we “should” love turned backwards into something evil and loathing.
On the note of loathing we have 3 clowns as of late that simply push the envelope in their department never offering viewers a chance … Continue reading
My old friend Sigmund Freud claimed that most children fantasise about dolls coming to life, and psychologist Ernst Jentsch theorised that uncanny feelings arise when there is an intellectual uncertainty about whether an object is alive or not, and also when an object that one knows to be inanimate resembles a living being enough to generate confusion about its nature. Robot engineer Masahiro Mori expanded on Freud and Jentsch’s theories to develop … Continue reading
You’ve probably found you way here as a fan of Zombie’s movies. Seeing that Rob still has “not” created and released 10 films makes it hard to present this as a top 10 list. We know that true Rob Zombie fans don’t need a list (as most can likely recite them off effortlessly without thinking twice) but….. we also have come to learn that many new viewers aren’t so savvy and could use a little … Continue reading
Horror has never been shy about putting the fear of evil into small playful objects. In our latest list we’ve compiled what we feel is the best of these creepy and often “stay with you long after” type films that used evil and dolls in a most horrific way.
The list was complete when the character of “Annabelle” came on to the market not only keeping the horror dolls trend effective, but managing … Continue reading
We at HorrorNews.net,Â know that tis the season to pull out the Halloween themed greats that focus on the Halloween season itself. There isn’t alotÂ of movies that fit the bill, but these will definitely do the trick.
Since Nosferatu (1922) rose from his coffin in GM Munreauâs classic silent movie of Dracula, cinematographers have loved to scare the pants off of their audience.Â No time of the year is better than Halloween to do this, so here … Continue reading
With any horror film that strikes a chord with the audience and has them flocking to the theatres, it is always tempting to build on the successes of the first film and make a sequel, or two, or three and the next thing you know you have a full blown franchise on your bloodied hands.
While many donât quite carry the same level quality all the way through an oft-elongated series of films, these five … Continue reading

Hey there Horror Fans! Got a inkling for a scary clown movie? Do creepy clowns freak you out? How about just plain haunting face paint that rubs you the wrong way? Well I think we all had to do a double take after the Gacy years, but for the meantime we thought we’d give you a nice little selection to choose from. Now my disclaimer on this list is “clown horror” films that I’ve yet … Continue reading
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
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
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
