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
In our quest to categorize great movie moments, the idea of chainsaw usage came to mind. Certainly there are more than 10 films with chainsaws being used, though this wood cutting device has been featured in a few that exceed expectations. Now out of fairness, this whole list could probably feature all Asian movies, as they tend to tack on chainsaws to body part pretty frequent. Though we limited it to 2 of the most … Continue reading
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
As an avid cinematic aficionado since early childhood Iâ€™d embraced the opportunity of attending the annual Canadian Film Fest with bedazzled awe. With mixed feelings of neurotic nervousness and preconceived notions the event would serve copious quantities of artsy, pretentious content that would require an interpreter for later translation I walked into the gala ready for anything and everything. My initial impressions could not be further from the truth.
Kicking off the … Continue reading

Do you know what the greatest part of my job is? It is that I can get bored on a Friday night, get the awesome idea to give something away, contact a kick ass series creator, and BAM! I can give something away to cure my boredom!
Here we go. To all my horrorphiles at home on a Friday night, I am going to give you the opportunity to win each of the 8 new … Continue reading
“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.”
Zombies are linked to the basics of human nature, they play upon our fears of infectious disease, death and turn our switches on to the need to survive. They are the walking dead, following their basic instincts, which is to feed. They are de-evolution at it’s finest and most of the time no one knows how the infection spread but it … Continue reading
While the psychos and the scream queens get most of the press, there is much more to creating a great horror film than the visual aspect. The horror soundtrack is an art form in its own right, and there are many collectors out there who crave the very finest examples of the genre, almost to the point of mania. But what does make a perfect horror movie soundtrack?
In recent years there has been the … Continue reading
Released in 1981, The Beyond, directed by Lucio Fulci, has long been considered the Italian filmmakerâ€™s masterpiece of gore.Â It has amassed a horde of devoted fans throughout the years, including Quentin Tarantino, who would praise and re-release the film.Â At this point I can already hear you shouting at me through the paper, â€śWait, we know all this already!Â So what?â€ťÂ Â Well, believe it or not there are horror fans … Continue reading
I’m willing to bet that “scariest horror films” has been uttered or searched for at least once in every horror fans lifetime. If your like me, it was literally several times a year hoping that a new titles would pop out that didn’t include the words “The Exorcist”. (That being meant in a somewhat sarcastic tone) The 1 film that “always” gets … Continue reading
Those anticipated gems that haunt you until final release. Maybe they lives up to expectations, maybe not..or just maybe they enter into your close circle of top favorites of all time?
