Video Nasties: The Covers – part 2
Presenting the entire legendary collection of Video Nasties Box cover art.
At one time the most disturbing horror titles on the market (and off)
Books are magical. Immersing yourself in the depths of the written word can whisk you away to the far reaches of imagination and drag you naked through the intricacies of epic tales of love, adventure, romance and horror. Unfortunately, the way I see it, books take a lot of time away from the more important enjoyments in life like drunkenly and maniacally weilding a chainsaw just to f*ck some sh*te up. I have also found … Continue reading
Beads of water quickly turn scarlet as steel repeatedly pierces naked flesh. Screams overpower the symphony of a spraying shower as the cleansing stream becomes the arterial splatter of death. The crumpling body grasps at the shower curtain in vein. Its once protecting vinyl now entangles wet and bleeding flesh as a mortuary shroud.
This is death experienced within a shower scene, one of the most famous visual examples of biological exit within cinematic horror. … Continue reading
Who says films donâ€™t influence crime? And who cares anyway? In California, a large man wearing a Michael Meyer Halloween mask raped a woman while carrying a large knife. Donald Pleasance was not there to try and shoot him.
Thereâ€™s an old Roald Dahl story called â€śLambs to the Slaughterâ€ť in which a woman beats her husband to death with a lamb, which she then serves to the investigating police officers who … Continue reading
As I peruse the varied articles posted here on Horrornews.net I am constantly amazed at the amount of information that is disseminated each & everyday. I’m especially intrigued by the “Lists” columns. There are so many categories of lists that I never would have thought of posted weekly, And all of them are very entertaining & informative. I thought about what I could contribute to this long line of lists and I decided to make … Continue reading
When you think about unsolved serial killer cases, some people get a little agitated when they canâ€™t put a face to a murder. They get a little disappointed, to the contrary though thatâ€™s not the case for the Cleveland Torso Murders. The case just keeps getting more exciting even after the murders stopped in 1945, well at least thatâ€™s what they believed. There were several twists to this case, including that all … Continue reading
Every year I like to spend some time and go through my horror film collection and find some to watch when Valentineâ€™s Day is coming up.Â Last year I came up with the basic top ten best films to watch on Valentineâ€™s Day.Â At first I thought about doing the loners addiction of my list, but I didnâ€™t think that would be appropriate in the spirit of this Hallmark created holiday.Â Â … Continue reading
Weapons are integral parts of any horror story. The killers need them to implement their crazy plans of murder and mayhem. Depending on the situation and type of characters involved, weapons and carnage will vary.
Blades are one of the most common kinds of weapons. Knives, machetes, swords and other sharp tools can cause some serious damage; just ask Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. Myersâ€™ usually wielded a simple, large kitchen knife. … Continue reading
30 Days of Night (2007)
â€śThere is no escape.Â No hope.Â Only hunger and pain.â€ťÂ Such is the state of the beast, and, fundamentally, vampires are beasts.Â Even Count Dracula, when he first appeared to the public, was a decrepit creature, not the suave nobleman we know and love today.Â 30 Days of Night is one of the best vampire films ever because it doesnâ€™t flinch away from this fact.Â That arial shot showing the pure carnage of vampires … Continue reading
When the neighborhood grandpa starts killing and eating your playmates you might want to stop and re-evaluate things. Like for instance question why he wanted you to spank him with the nail studded paddle or season yourself up. Well itâ€™s most likely that heâ€™s Albert Fish not the good old loving grandpa figure you thought him to be.
Most of the people in the area never thought he could … Continue reading
You’re walking home at night on a deserted road when a woman in a surgical mask approaches. It’s not such a strange thing, as many people in Japan wear masks when they’re feeling under the weather or trying to prevent pollen-induced allergies. She stops.
“Am I pretty?” she asks. She has long, shiny black hair and is wearing a beige coat cinched at the waist.
“Yes,” you say.
And that is when … Continue reading
How many times have you been watching an older movie and suddenly you see a famous actor or actress when they were younger in the background and they have some lame-ass line? Well these moments are most evident in horror films.
Horror films are usually low budget so they can get aspiring actors to speak a few lines for little money. But then ten years down the road, that once no-name actor whose role it … Continue reading
This is most definitely one the best modern werewolf movies. Even though the werewolves remind me of the ones from The Howling, this movie is one of the most original to come out in years. The military in the Scottish Highlands, fighting the children of the night? Yes, please! Expecting to carry out a routine training mission, the soldiers find the ravaged remains of a Special Forces squad who were … Continue reading
When wanting to design the perfect Zombie structure rather it be a live specimen or robotics there is a long thought process that takes years of development or experience. The master creator and Supervisor of the Zombies for The Walking Dead Greg Nicotero isn’t new to the Zombie game by far. Nicotero is Master Special Effects Artist in his own rights creating the legendary Zombies for George Romero himself. People around him say he lives … Continue reading
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 terrors from Aliens or The Descent or even Poltergeist. I am talking about real flesh and blood people that could actually come into your bedroom and drive a stake through your chest. Real people … Continue reading
Pretty much every hardcore horror fan decries the remake. We have this static notion of what these classic horror movies are, and because they were often done right the first time, we demand that newbies “rent a f*ckin’ movie!” or otherwise cease the feeding of the cash-driven Hollywood machine.
The reason it’s done is rather simple: they’re really good stop-gap productions that bring in money. Instead of relying on one or two blockbusters a year … Continue reading
