Top 13 Modern Vampire Films

Top-13-modern_vampire-30-days-of-night

30 Days of Night (2007)
“There is no escape. No hope. Only hunger and pain.” Such is the state of the beast, and, fundamentally, vampires are beasts. Even Count Dracula, when he first appeared to the public, was a decrepit creature, not the suave nobleman we know and love today. 30 Days of Night is one of the best vampire films ever because it doesn’t flinch away from this fact. That arial shot showing the pure carnage of vampires … Continue reading

Bad Babysitter

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 it’s most likely that he’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

Frightful Japan: The Torn-Mouth Woman (Kuchisake Onna)

kuchisake[1]

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

Top 10 Male Horror Stars before they were famous

Before_they_were_horror-Kevin_Bacon

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

Top 13 Great Horror Movies that start with D

dog-soldiers

1. Dog Soldiers (2002)

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

Apocalyptic Landscapes: The Walking Dead

Greg Nicotero "The Walking Dead"

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 us…or could they? Now I’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

Top 13 Horror Movies that should be remade

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

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

Top 13 Underated Horror Films

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

1. Dread (2009)
This movie came and went under the radar with little fanfare notice save a few features in Fangoria. Although it’s no surprise no one’s seen this, because it was one of After Dark Horrorfest’s movies this past year.

However, this movie is one that cannot be missed. It is the best Clive Barker adaptation ever. I will never see a movie starring one of the people from Twilight… except for Jackson … Continue reading

White Women Beware

There is nothing wrong with interracial couples at all. You might want to watch it though when your big black boyfriend wants to rape and kill you one night. Just something that you might want to ponder about if your boyfriends name is Gerald Parker.

Our dear Mr. Parker killed five white women and one unborn fetus in the orange county area in the 70’s. Well a little backgorund on this dark … Continue reading

Top 10 Horror Movies that need a DVD release

Movies-that_TheUncannyBox[1]

With technology constantly changing, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with it all. VHS tapes used to be the most popular form of movie-watching around, but with the invention of DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and Video on Demand, not many people (except me) buy VHS tapes anymore. Some people don’t even own a VCR. There are many good horror films that have not yet received a DVD release which is very unfortunate.

Many films have … Continue reading

Monsters are real… They live inside of us and sometimes they win.”
– Stephen King

There are many hideous killers in hockey, clown or Halloween masks lurking around every corner. Killers such as Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and as obscure as he may be, Trevor Moorehouse have stalked the screen for decades and continue to rise from the grave every so often to bring sequel after gore soaked sequel to … Continue reading

They’re rude, they’re rotten, they’re radical . . . Zombies bitch!

How’s it goin Nerds?

I feel like talking Zombies. I love Zombies. They are the most horrifying creatures that I can think of. Whether green or grey, boney or bloated I can’t seem to find anything more terrifying than the risen dead. Let’s get into Zombies and what we all love or better yet, fear about those who once lived yet still walk.

Horrors of Humanity: Gore and Vomit

bizBB_0005

Gore and vomit have always had a relationship, with truly gory films such as the Guinea Pig movies and the August Underground films inducing gallons of vomit across the planet.


Director Lucifer Valentine has combined the two ‘hobbies’ into a new genre he calls ‘vomit gore’. They feature vomit, and may cause the viewer to join in. I made it 11 minutes into his first film, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls, before … Continue reading

Serial Killers: Elizabeth Bathory

1_clip_image006

The sadistic Slovakian Countess of the 16th and 17th century put a cornerstone of interest in many horror fanatics, with the release of “Stay Alive”. The movie made a fantasy about a woman that had a thirst for blood, unfortunately it was just a fragment of the true story of one of the most sadistic female serial murders of the century. Incidentally this wasn’t the first myth that would help her claim to fame. I believe … Continue reading
