Within the cinematic genre of horror, we have become accustomed to the splattering of blood and the evisceration of the human creature upon our ocular perceptions. Yet blood and guts have become clichĂ© in the modern horror film. We have become immune and desensitized to the fright and disgust that the horror film is intended to evoke, by its very natures, within our psyche.
As our collective visual consciousness evolves as a society and greater … Continue reading
Some of the elder Horror fans out there may remember such television series as The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Dark Shadows (which was actually aired during the day time), Tales from the Darkside and Amazing Stories. These were very popular television shows aimed at the horror audience. They were also aired on channels such as ABC, CBS and NBC. Another television show called The Late, Late show was unlike any of the above mentioned. This … Continue reading
In the recent round of talk show appearances by actors from the new version of Alice in Wonderland, many of the performers discussed their lengthy stints âgetting into costume.â This is both a travesty and at the same time not surprising. While costumes have been heralded by cinema onlookers for decades, makeup has only recently been given the respect is has long deserved, … Continue reading
Whatâs up with all the remakes? Thatâs what horror movie audiences are asking. Over the past few years, weâve seen remakes for âFriday the 13th,â âMy Bloody Valentine,â and Rob Zombieâs ânew takeâ on âHalloweenâ and âHalloween II.â
Those are only a few of the movies that have gone through the remake machine. But why? Are fans asking for them? Did John Doe write a letter to Screen Gems asking to see a âWhen a … Continue reading
Horror is no exception to this rule. However, one thing is constant across all of the different categories of horror: Those watching, listening, or reading horror expect to be treated to a something that will make them have some kind of emotional … Continue reading
The Simpsons are in their 20th season and in all those years have lampooned several horror films with great delight. This is typically done during their Halloween special Treehouse of Horror episodes where they go all out and will typically parody several films in a single tale.
Let’s take a look back at some of these and relive our favorite moments in Simpsons horror moments.

With the recent debut of the Resident Evil: Afterlife trailer, it’s time to look over the series thus far. The thing is, I find it hard to look at these films with a critic’s eye, as I can’t help but enjoying them for what they are big, daft action movies with a horror element.
Yes, they do kinda walk all over the games universe they are based on, but not being a gamer myself, I … Continue reading

The full moon shines its brightest for a few nights each month, illuminating the darkness that envelops the world. It should be a symbol of hope and comfort, yet mankind has long feared what terrors the satellite may bring. Why is it that the full moon inspires such dread?
The most identifiable culprit is the prevailing myth of the werewolf. Since time immemorial, the moon has been associated with … Continue reading
As we watch the school buses begin to crowd streets and feel the air begin to chill, we realize that our sweet summer has come and gone. Fall has arrived and with it, the return of the television season. This year brings forth many fan favorites such as âSupernaturalâ and âVampire Diaries.â But, it also brings some rookies such as the much anticipated âThe Walking Dead.â Horror fans have been patiently waiting to see the … Continue reading
Come on, we’ve all thought that at some point or other. When sitting in front of some less-than-brilliant horror flick. It’s a natural reaction. We all think we can do better. Thankfully, there are those amongst us that are actually going that extra step further and getting out of their chairs and making something themselves. We’re in an age where movie lovers are able to shoot and edit their own movies to … Continue reading
Devil, the new horror film produced by M. Night, is set to release this Friday September 17th, I donât know how I feel about it yet since M. Night ruined The Last Airbender series for me, but that is neither here nor there.Â In honor of this horror/thriller film that takes place entirely in an elevator, I have decided to search through my collection of horror films and bring you the top ten horror films … Continue reading
Someone asked me recently why I liked horror movies. They asked me that because they do not. While I can appreciate oneâs personal preferences, the question struck me, as I have always liked horror. While I may not have been on this Earth as long as the undead, I have seen many a horror flick in my short time here.
The short answer to the question is simple. Fantastical escapism. Same reason I like any … Continue reading
As fans of this bloodiest of genres, we are often looked at as a bit mad by other people, andÂ especially those that a close to us. It can be difficult to explain to others just what we findÂ so fascinating about the horror genre, and if friends come round for a movie night, it can beÂ even harder trying to figure out what to show them that won’t have them running … Continue reading
When you think of a Horror Movie Director you get visions of John Carpenter, Wes Craven, Clive Barker and of course Steven Speilberg. Steven Speilberg you might ask? Well some of his more recent movies have been less than horrifying besides for their lack luster content, but he has made some pretty terrifying films to start.
His 1975 release of âJawsâ still makes me tread only so deep in the oceanâs waters. … Continue reading
Masks are often used during Halloween as part of costumes. We use the opportunity to transform ourselves into something or someone else. Sometimes we like to mask ourselves as a famous actor or person. Other times, we like to delve into our dark side and become some kind of monster. Masks have also been used during rituals, ceremonies, and celebrations throughout time. Mardi Gras anyone? Regardless of how or when they are … Continue reading
The epic bellow for bug spray echoed down the ridge as I was struggling to climb a sheer wall of dirt and rock in my, poorly chosen, footwear choice of sandals. To be more accurate, I shimmied up on my hands and backside to avoid the inevitable Jerry Lewis like tumble I would have taken trying to use the feet attached to my legs. Once atop the ridge, said insect repellant requester turned out to … Continue reading
Growing up in the 80âs for the most part, I found myself a Horror fan as much as the next kid. My best friend Wally and I joined a local movie-rental club; we would ride our bikes down to the movie place and rent every horror film the guy had. Being 13-14 it was great because he would let us rent the -R- movies with the gratuitous nudity in them.
Looking back, I am still … Continue reading
Last week celebrated the American DVD/Blu-ray release of Ji-woon Kim’s The Good, the Bad, the Weird. The film is more or less a remake of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western of a similar name involving three mercenaries in hot pursuit of buried treasure and get caught in the midst of a civil war. Here, it’s 1930s Manchuria and the Imperial Japanese army is battling the Qing Dynasty over territory dominance. It has the same “this land … Continue reading
The End. The ever so typical phrase was the simple yet effective title to the series finale of ABCâs âLost.â Creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse didnât need a fancy title or a name of song. They knew the episode would speak for itself. And boy did it ever.
A little over 13 million fans tuned into the show that has seemed to captivate many over the past six years (me … Continue reading
One aspect of horror fandom that always brings a warm glow to my geeky heart is the fact that we are always able to appreciate the glories of the past as well as the latest releases. In some corners of movie fandom there is a horrible tendency to dismiss anything that could be classified as old school, while in horror circles, many older films are seen as something sacred. Those films … Continue reading
