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 usâ€¦or could they? Now Iâ€™m not talking about the [...]
Possession is surely a topic up for plenty of discussion in todayâ€™s society as it has been in the past. There are those who believe it exists and those who think it is nonsense. Some religions recognize it as a real phenomenon while science views it as undiagnosed health problems.
Despite this, the movie world has not shied away from the subject and has created a few frighteningly disturbed movies that feature … 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
The Comic Con of New York, like that of San Diego, is the geek version of Mecca. Here you can find everything entertainment related from toys and television to comic books and film. Even Anime makes an appearance at the NYCC. Free swag is found at every turn and there is a lot to do â€“ assuming you get around the place without being trampled, lost, and knocked unconscious or being forced into a warehouse … Continue reading
Hello again, True Believers! If you read my initial thoughts on the NYCC then you were expecting this Top 10. If you have NOT read that piece then, well â€“ shame on you! The New York Comic Con is geek central. It is the Mecca for all things movies/tv, pop culture, comic books and anime. Despite some of the negative things there are some that are also good. This list will take care of those … Continue reading

You are walking in cemetery one dark, dreary night (not sure why, but this seems to happen a lot in scenarios like this). You are alone and the only sound you can hear are your footsteps making crackling sounds on the dead leaves. Suddenly, you notice movement from the graves
Then, hands, arms, and finally bodies begin to ascend slowly from the graves. â€śZombies!â€ť you say, all slowly limping toward … Continue reading
11- [REC] (both 1 and 2)
A forefront winner in the cinema verite category that engages the user much like a video game might. The things that pop out and attack the camera are damn creepy and frightful to behold. The American film “Quarantine” was a direct copy, but lacked some of the original appeal. … Continue reading
With Halloween around the corner, we wanted to make sure we included our mark on the top 20 scariest films of all time. The selections have been scrutinized over and in fact mirror many other such lists. Though we’d added a few surprises that I think get forgotten from time to time. I wanted to point out something painfully obvious.
Alot of our scariest films occurred at the 70′s end years. I don’t think it’s … Continue reading
So, in my mind, amongst horrible and bloody thoughts of you, I have a growing mass of villains and horror icons that I both love and admire and yet, have never really seen any such compilation from any other esteemed and notable columnist that wasn’t the same old regurgitated sh*t being used over and used over for the sake of churning out another mediocre horror-themed article. It occurred to me while drunk and sharpening axes, … Continue reading
A young couple decides to head to a secluded area for a little make-out session. As the date begins, the music is interrupted by a news report stating a mental patient with a hook for a hand has escaped from an institution.
The couple pays no attention. Initially, the date starts out fun and a bit steamy. As the couple continues their date, the girl hears scratches on the car door. She tells her boyfriend … Continue reading
Macabre Families Horror Fans Wish They Could Have Grown Up With
Television families have always been a staple from every generation since the dawning of the Boob tube. Most of the generations have grown up watching The Cleavers, The Osmonds, The Jacksons, The Partridges, and the Bradys among others but thankfully true horror fans have had families to grow up watching as well. We are gonna talk about the top horror/macabre families that most horror … Continue reading
WARNING: The following article may be controversial and objective to some without an open mind. While most of my articles are informative (this is as well) this one is strongly opinionated. A sense of humor is not required….
I just thought I’d unleash some personal opinions on the mixing of the Horror and Comedy genres. Why is there such a combination? Horror is supposed to leave you with an uneasy feeling of dread, fright and … Continue reading
It is mankind that is responsible for all of the horrors of the real world. It is my belief that mankind is a cosmic virus in need of eradication, but that is just the opinion of a misanthrope and irrelevant within the scope of this article. Anger, hatred, and violence are at the root of many of these horrors but are they all unwarranted? This is where the concepts of revenge and vengeance come into … Continue reading
The premiere of FX’s new horror themed show AMERICAN HORROR STORY happened tonight and I must say that I have a few words about it. It’s about time that a network grew the type of gonads that horror fans (who aren’t die hard zombie fans) have been screaming for on network television! AMERICAN HORROR STORY is about a family who moved into a mansion in LA that has quite a few skeletons … Continue reading
Alfred Hitchcockâ€™s Blackmail marked the first time, in British cinematic history, that sound was used for an entire feature film.Â The infamous American musical The Jazz Singer (1927) has been cited as the first film to use dialogue; however, Al Jolsonâ€™s notorious film barely passes as a â€śtalkieâ€ť as it incorporated only a â€śfewâ€ť lines of dialogue.Â When considering the inability to adequately market a full-â€śtalkieâ€ť at the time (only 20% of theatres could … Continue reading
