It’s hard to phantom how many zombie films have been released over the years. Add to that the resurrected interest zombie films have played in the 21st century. Take that 1 step further with the trend of “including” hot ladies as strippers-turned-zombies giving the imagery of the undead a bit of a makeover (usually a nasty faced vixen with popping breasts and hot bod combo).
Even though these slimy, flesh eating denizens of the un-living … Continue reading
Though they appear only in 6:1 through 8:5 of the Book of Revelation, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are one of the most enduring, and most feared, aspects of St. Johnâ€™s vision. For Biblical literalists, the Four Horsemen are real figures, part of a future apocalypse predicted by the exiled St. John, in which war, famine, disease, and death will visit those who do not follow the Christian god. For scholars … Continue reading
A most curious title, you most likely have seen one or more of these films. While there have been plenty of films that feature isolation, there has also has been a trend (motivated by the SAW movies success) that directly deals with the premise of locking, capturing, kidnapping or placing a group of individuals into a room (or like-location) for the sake of isolation and observation (hence to study or torment…or perhaps both).
In most … Continue reading
It’s all very well to be critical of the output of publishers and movie studios, but sometimes some simple praise is needed. Permuted Press deserve some kudos for what they’ve been doing in recent times for horror fiction. Be they printed or ebooks, the releases from Permuted Press offer a different take on the apocalyptic fiction which has seeped into the horror genre over the past decade.
Zombies have been all the … Continue reading
Rock and Shock is an annual horror convention that takes place every October in Worcester, MA. Its ninth incarnation occurred on October 12-14, and I was on hand for all three days. Perhaps the biggest draw this year was former Kiss drummer Peter Criss, who had his own private signing room. Other celebrity guests included Danny Trejo (Machete), Tony Todd (Candyman), Doug Bradely (Hellraiser), Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s … Continue reading
I found it hard to choose just ten films that would cause enough fear to keep people away from densely wooded areas. As I was organizing a list, digging through the hundreds of films that send their protagonists into the woods, I wondered: Are films that are based out of camps really films that take place in the woods, or do the films have to be set totally in the deep wood, away from all … Continue reading
The Cube Movies Explanation
The Cube series is highly regarded as a fantastical and complex franchise that bases its films around the intricacies of a mystery cube. The initial cube is a 6-sided room that offers small doors on all sides (leading to other cubes) with lethal booby traps awaiting in some of them. A pattern to “which” rooms had traps was never established, though we know that they were activated with either motion or … Continue reading
Carlos Gananianâ€™ short movies deserve respect not only for they amazing production values, but also for being Brazilian movies that take a chance outside of the countryâ€™s usual horror themes and scenarios, and instead pay homage to more universal horror themes. They are subtle, silent and introspective little films, and considering that and the fact that the first two are actually film student shorts, most people will run scared, ready to hear the pretention … Continue reading
This new article came over today from one of our veteran writers for HorrorNews.net DR Blood. Upon closer inspection, I believe it warrants some attention for the reasons mentioned. As most of us “Horror sites” have experienced maybe once, twice, or our case multiple times, Youtube has a pretty strict policy of NOT accommodating the storage of horror movie trailers. Not ALL mind you by any means (which is evident by the movie … Continue reading
Popularized in the 1981 film Clash of the Titans, the kraken is one of the few monsters possibly based on a real animal. It is not of Greek origin, however, but Scandinavian, nor is it even remotely humanoid in appearance. While the earliest reports describe the kraken as more akin to a crab than an octopus or squid, the kraken is now largely considered to be the cryptozoological cousin of the giant squid, itself once … Continue reading
Since entering the scene in 1998 as the writer/director of Following (1998), Christopher Nolan has become a mainstream filmmaking force to be reckoned with. Love his work or hate it, this man has created some of the most talked about films of the past decade, and he is responsible for taking some of the hottest properties back to the silver screen. While this writer personally loves the manâ€™s philosophy of using CG only when … Continue reading
These are some of the most enduring faces of horror, characters that have had an onslaught of sequels, remakes and imitators. The characters are so pervasive in our cultural awareness that theyâ€™re not just movie icons but Halloween favourites too.
If weâ€™re talking Halloween then we canâ€™t start with anyone but Michael Myers. This soulless sociopath rears his ugly head just for the holidays, leaving a path of bodies in his wake. Ironically … Continue reading
Cinema Verite, possibly a term we are hearing one too many times these days. Such is the style of filmmaking that simply involves a single POV, a handheld camera, and action that unfolds during the duration of the movie. ItÂ has also been associated with “found footage” films (though found is not always the case).Â This has been a trend for the last 2 years based primarily on the reality vision coming off TV fare. So … Continue reading
Another tough one as there really is alot of sexy hot female leads within horror films. Rather than taking the obvious route of “hot ladies within horror”, I thought it better to focus on the sexy leads who are better known for their lead parts. Milla Jovovich as the Resident Evil lead is a great example of this, who pretty much is the face of Resident Evil films. The same could be said for Kate … Continue reading
I have seen tons of horror movies in my lifetime, and as a result I have seen more death scenes than I could ever count. Some are awesome, some suck sour frog ass, and some are just freaking weird, usually because of the unlikely item used to kill someone. Several examples come to mind, but there are some that stand out more than the others. Without further ado I present to you my list of … Continue reading
Back again for more I see! Well don’t stop with 10 as there are 10 more hot sexy posters to gawk at. This “Top 20 Sexiest Horror Movie Posters list” is always open to more suggestions, so feel free to comment on a few we may have missed below. If we get enough, we’ll up the anty with another 10 (or so). Maybe this list will inspire a few more that recognize the need to … Continue reading
So you might recall an advert or 2? Certainly a few of these bodacious eye popping 1-sheets have made you stop once or twice to see what new film products the marketing folks were throwing at you. A few have stuck out as favorites that were clearly using sex appeal to sell its viewers on the lovely inclusions these films offered. A good example is “The Unborn” ad which features actress Odette Annable standing in … Continue reading
The Asian countries are probably best known, where monsters are concerned, for their depictions of vengeful female ghosts. It should come as no surprise that these ancient lands would also be home to a host of strange demons, spirits, and monsters unlike anything with which most Westerners are familiar.
One of the most intriguing of these Asian monsters comes from China. Called the jiang-shi, it is a bizarre hybrid of vampire and … Continue reading
Ah, back for more I see! Well we couldn’t leaving ya hanging on to just 10, could we? Not with so many copycat, derivative poster designs to choose from. To be honest I probably could have taken this to 30, but 20 will have to do for now. As with the previous 10, some are blatant rip-offs while others and “inspired” by (or whatever they call it). Enjoy the gallery of delights from minds that … Continue reading
If you are a noob to the horror film world, or even if you are a seasoned veteran, you know that finding a horrible horror film is not that hard. The shelves of horror video sections are riddled with horror films that will make you ever wonder who gave the production team the budget to make that piece of sh*t. But donâ€™t worry; I have spent the last week sifting through my online video account … Continue reading
THE ABC’S OF THE HORROR KIND
Remember learning the alphabet in elementary school and having to assign words like â€˜appleâ€™ and â€˜banana?â€™ Those were the days, but honestly I think thereâ€™s a better way to learn the ABCâ€™s. How about the horror alphabet? Itâ€™s a much more fun and entertaining way to get educated. Take a gander and begin the learning process.
A is for alien. Who can forget Sigourney Weaverâ€™s â€˜Ripleyâ€™ … Continue reading
