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 80â€™s 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 ABCâ€™s â€śLost.â€ť Creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse didnâ€™t 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
Hey it’s list time again. This round up consists of the top televised series that fall into the horror /sci genres. Series like the variety of Star Trek, Stargate and Battlestar Galactica off shoots were not included as to be quite frank I never watched them. But I like to think as these as the ones that fall into the fantastical….some more horror driven than others. To be fair, I’ve included some special mention ones … Continue reading
Special mention: “Funny Games” (1997)
Take my advice and just stick with the 1997 German version. The accents will drive you a bit crazy but what made this film work so well was the directors way of lingering on shots. 2 boys torture a family and play games through the movie. What I found almost unbearable was the camera style that stays with certain shots …without cuts and lets … Continue reading

Scrapbook is a horror film about a young woman who is kidnapped, held captive, and repeatedly beaten and raped for several days. The title refers to a scrapbook that her captor uses as a record of the … Continue reading
Â Â 1) “The Guinea Pig Collection” (1980’S) – 7 FILMS
This collection has long been the reigning champ for its purely visceral lack of humanity. Extreme torture, extreme gore….it really doesn’t get much more bare bones than this. The trouble either is that the films are not that good. They are simply pieces for extreme sake only. Viewers often questioned if they were real just for the cold nature of these and … Continue reading

ToeTag Pictures.Â Ever hear of it?Â They are the film company behind the August Underground trilogy, The Redsin Tower, Maskhead, and Murder Collection V.1.Â If you only watch mainstream horror releases then chances are you havenâ€™t heard of them.Â Formed by Fred Vogel and Jerami Cruise on April 1, 2004 ToeTag Pictures and Vogel are, I believe, the most important forces working the low-budget, independent horror scene today.Â Vogel has a very … Continue reading
There seem to be some problems emerging with SCREAM 4/SCRE4M which are setting alarm bellsÂ ringing with fans around the world. With creator Kevin Williamson either on or off the projectÂ (depending what you read) and rewrites of the script having taken place, it’s easy to lose trackÂ of what’s actually happening. The film is now shooting., and there seems to be some dramaÂ unfolding surrounding the production- that much is certain. … Continue reading
Being a horror fan here and now is a strange thing. We are still the outsiders of genre fans to a certain extent. While most genre fans will have a few horror films in their top ten/twenty lists (yeah, it’s okay, we’ve all got them), the dedicated horror fan will have hundreds of top titles, depending on any number of factors. The same can be said for science fiction and fantasy, martial arts films or … Continue reading

Hall), who works as the Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst. Dexter is an average guy, dealing with issues in everyday life like girl problems, family issues and where to hide the bodies of the people he murders. Wait…what? While Dexter … Continue reading
Before I get into my rant, I should say that I do enjoy the series and am pretty dedicated to watching every episode. Season one was alot of fun and Season 2 is looking to be “just” as entertaining. So what gives?Â Those who are less familiar with the term “scream queen” should know that it’s used more in the past tense than the present tense. Meaning that to be a “scream queen” you have … Continue reading

You’ll read alot of lists this time of year, though that doesn’t mean that they are the final say but rather an individual’s perspective. We wanted to give you a chance to hear us out of what we thought were … Continue reading
The popular thing to do these days is a little something called a â€śmash-upâ€ť. The popularity has risen thanks to the pulp-culture phenomenon known as â€śShow Choirâ€ť. With music it is easy. With movies? Not so much. But it can be funny as hell. And we here at HorrorNews love lists! So I present to you the horror movie mash-up! This is a top 10 list of movies, including at least one horror, that would … Continue reading
Piranha 3D opens on August 20th, and it is terribly exciting. The trailers are a bit misleading. While they do not make the film look bad, they do not show why I am so excited. Someone leaked 9 minutes of nudity laden, blood stained, cheese filled footage of the film and let me tell you, this thing looks horrible good. This is by no means an aesthetic masterpiece in the vein of The Texas Chainsaw … Continue reading
