21- Skinny Puppy – Worlock
22- The Horrors – Sheena Is A Parasite
When filmmakers Daniel Myrick and Eduardo SĂˇnchez wrote and directed The Blair Witch Project which debuted in theaters ten years ago this past summer, they ushered in a sub-genre of filmmaking that was part reliant on the power of suggestion, part pre-reality TV, and part old-fashioned exploitation fright film.
Certainly, Blair Witch was a phenomenon in 1999, coming right at the end of perhaps the most pioneering decade in American independent filmmaking, due at least … Continue reading

Oh hey there hot chixxx and sweet dudes
I am quite comfortable at this stage of my life telling you that my favorite horror sub-genre is the zombie film.Â Killer aliens on spaceships are probably a close second, but I go through long stretches where all Iâ€™ll watch is zombie-horror.Â
Now, Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s some psycho-analyst out there who can spout on and on about the flesh-eating subtext, but I assure you itâ€™s not the cannibalistic … Continue reading
The Black Saint has been very busy as of late. What with dealing with gale force winds buffeting my mausoleum & some uncommonly warm weather for February, I was in a bit of a tizzy for awhile. Then I had to figure out whether I wanted to eat or pay the mortgage on the mausoleum. I decided on food. I figure my acolytes will all chip in on the whole mortgage brouhaha. They better if … Continue reading
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
