Celebrate the day! Being a long time follower of cult films over the years, I figured it was due time to create an appropriate Top 20 list of Cult Film Directors for readers who might “still” be seeking out worthy films to indulge in (Director collectives..that is). I knew creating this list that not every favorite cult director would make it on here (meaning in the public’s eye and that it was limited to 20). … Continue reading
Ok, you found your way here looking for some clarity on the whole demon possession thing. Well I’m hear to tell ya…… I don’t type haphazardly (and rather consider the details) . The subject has been analyzed and evaluated to qualify and disqualify common misconceptions.
First let’s be clear…demon possession is exactly that. That doesn’t mean possession if you “ARE” the antichrist (aka The Omen) that you are possessed, as therefore you’d be doing the … Continue reading
Basically, I am a horror nut. I watch the movies, I look at the magazines, I check out the websites, and I write the stories. Most people limit their horror intake and conservatively save it simply for Halloween time. Not me, I try to employ these fright feelings all year long. This is what I did one time.
It was October 1991 and I went to a film location that was the place where a … Continue reading
Ok, if you caught our cancellations and renewals list for Fall 2012 TV, you also might be curious as to what’s new coming down the pipe from the networks. Now we don’t have a ton to report on, though it has been reported that a hand full of “new” shows will debut this Fall that we felt would be of interest to our niche. This … Continue reading
As the 2012 Fall TV season rolls forward, we’ll have to say goodbye to a few decent genre “related” shows. Though with cancellation comes renewals as well, so hopefully this will help you plan your viewing nights appropriately. With the exception of 1 or 2, I hate to see any of these go…….but with that, let’s hope that there’s something more interesting to take their place for the genre fans. (please note: there may be … Continue reading

When I asked Horror News readers and Facebook friends to tell me their favourite vampire films, I received a terrific response. The suggestions poured in, and all kinds of weird, wonderful and outlandish films fronted up for selection. So while I can’t deny the quality or appeal of films like Planet Of The Vampires (1965), Count Yorga Vampire (1970), Vampyres (1974) or Shadow Of The Vampire (2000), I can only count it … Continue reading

Ah, itâ€™s that time again. The heat of the sun beating down on your skin, the sound of laughter at every turn, water hitting the sand, blood curdling screams of young adults ringing through the air as they are chased down by psychotic killers, sharks, and crazed infections. Oh, spring break, thank goodness you have finally decided to grace us with your presence. This time of year allots for some good horror entertainment. It doesnâ€™t … Continue reading
We have always thought we were different from the rest. We, as in lovers of all things horror, just couldnâ€™t explain our fascination with the macabre. Sure there have been blogs, books and film reviews written. There are even conventions hosted throughout the world that dutifully pay homage to the horror genre and why â€śweâ€ť love it. But, nonetheless, it was pretty obvious that there had to be more behind our passion. There has to … Continue reading

Itâ€™s no secret vampires are the trendiest accessory this year. Vampires immerse everything from television to movies to books.Â Theyâ€™ve been present in our culture for sometime but got a rocket-propelled boost from the popular teen series, â€śTwilight.â€ť Vampires canâ€™t be uttered as of late without mentioning the series. However, after the vampire decides to go on hiatus, whoâ€™s next in line to take the horror throne?
Some fans make the argument that … Continue reading
What do you call a three day weekend chock full of music, madness and mayhem all devoted to the undying spirit of HORROR?
Rock and Shock, thatâ€™s what!
Indeed, promoter Massconcerts and the city of Worcester did a great job as always hosting this annual event, this year presented at the cityâ€™s DCU and Palladium venues. Between all of the bands playing the Palladiumâ€™s two stages, the … Continue reading
There are many lessons a person must learn in life, and there are various ways that one can go about doing it.Â One of the hardest lessons for some to learn is that ability to meet and actually get to know that special someone that they just might be able to spend the rest of their life with.Â There are many ways for people around the world to do just that, yet most simply … Continue reading
Yeah, I like Buffy the Vampire Slayer… I didnâ€™t say â€ślikedâ€ť, I said â€ślikeâ€ť… present tense. I realize that the series lasted from 1997 to 2003, but Iâ€™ve found myself revisiting the seriesâ€™ seven seasons often. However, the more I dust off the DVDs, the stronger I feel that instead of Buffy ending in 2003, the series actually died in May of 2001.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) has become a cult … Continue reading
While writing this column has brought my attention to details of various sides to the 2012 topic, my imagination has also been running wild as I consider the possible outcomes, prophecies and theories. This enhanced perspective I am taking has also encouraged me to ask questions, such as: â€śWhat is really going to happenâ€¦honestly?â€ť
This question is obviously one that anyone who knows about 2012 predictions wants answered. Speculation of apocalyptic … Continue reading
Satellite TV and cable are constantly trying to up the ante by producing shows that are edgier and more innovative, and yet it can still be hard to find a program that is entertaining and mentally stimulating. AMCâ€™s The Walking Dead, however, has both entertainment value and mental stimulation in spades. While on the surface it’s only a program about the zombie apocalypse, when you look closer you’ll find it’s … Continue reading
Baal, among one of the 7 princes of Hell has often been associated as being one in the same with the demon Beelzebub. This is primarily due to the name of Beelzebub breaking down into its alternate spelling of Baalzebub or Baal zebub. This particular demon has also been confused with the Semitic deity known as Ba’al. To further confuse my readers, in the Christian New Testament, Baal is spoken within the same … Continue reading
Demon Profile: Beelzebub
Ah, Beelzebub, a name most feared and used quite often in film and literature. His stance of power is a claim to being one of the 7 princes of Hell. While his name translates into the “lord of flies” or the prince of demons, Beelzebub is often associated or presented as being Satan himself. Certainly the flies aspect has been played to, more than once within popular demonic based films … Continue reading
As we move forward with different subject matters within the horror spectrum of fiction and non fiction, we will be taking on different profiles of mass proportion to serve as reference points within articles. This is primarily driven at isolated studies and general references that might appear in some of the fiction films we cover. We’ve always felt it makes for a richer experience……that is, to provide resources that cross reference each other for … Continue reading
The Basilisk is one of the more obscure mythological creatures. This particular beast originates from European bestiaries and ancient legend. It’s contribution comes in the from of being noted as the king among serpents causing death with just a single piercing glance.
While it is a relatively small creature the size of “twelve finger lengths”, its venom is noted as being able to leave behind traces of poison as it crawls forward. Oddly enough … Continue reading
