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

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? This happened a few times for me. One was with the release of “Insidious“, another was that inspiring “Dawn of the Dead” remake and then the one that surprised alot … Continue reading
Okay, so I am sure that I am about to ignite a sh*t storm that will most likely include me getting tons of hate male threatening me and calling me a ton of derogatory names (as well as questioning my taste in movies and my sanity in general), but I wanted to put this list together anyway. Without further ado, here is my list of the 10Â most overrated horror movies of all time that most … Continue reading
What’s this? Your anticipating Valentines Day…and you want to load up on Valentines Day themed horror films? We are guessing that this list only gets really looked at 1 time a year, but hey…..you never know when you might be quizzed on coming up with titles for the event? We’ve scoured the masses and pulled up a “real” small hand full of Valentines Day movies that actually have something to do with Valentines day. Now … Continue reading
This is a topic that I have done my best to stay out of this year for reasons that far surpass those that are already public record. Honestly, I would still be keeping to myself but since I keep getting asked for my opinion by related and unrelated parties, I will go into here and let it be the end of it.
I am ALL for a good debate on issues between people who feel … Continue reading
Horror is a genre that waxes and wanes on the media of television, and we have been seeing a resurgence in the recent years. From older television series, such as the â€śTwilight Zoneâ€ť (1959-1964), and â€śThe Outer Limitsâ€ť (1963-1965), to the more modern â€śX-Filesâ€ť (1993-2002), horror has graced our sets for many years. The current trend of remaking older movies has now transitioned into bringing old television shows to light on the big screen. â€śDark … Continue reading
Asian horror films on the most part fall somewhere between “deep to my heart” to recycled nonsense. Though I do enjoy the thrill of weeding thru all the stinkers to find the gems. For anyone new to these, they present a special brand of fear and dread that is far removed from many Western releases. In fact, I’m quite confident in saying that Asian films tend to rule in the ghost and loony categories. Usually … Continue reading
Some film genres rely more on special effects than others, and horror is right at the top of the list. When making a horror film, you need all sorts of special effects from fake blood to open wounds and special make-up to help actors appear good and dead! However, if youâ€™re working on a low-budget film and only have a few hundred quid to spend, how can you create realistic special effects without going over-budget? … Continue reading
Once the province of criminals and sailors, tattoos have steadily gained traction in popular culture as a trendy form of body modification. For true tattoo enthusiasts, it becomes more and more difficult to distinguish themselves with a unique piece of art. While young adults looking to shock their parents and the world at large often turn to horror for inspiration (skulls are still one of the most widespread tattoos, after all), horror provides a … Continue reading

An anthology television series is a program that presents a different story with a different set of characters in each episode. These normally have different actors each week but some employed a permanent ensemble of actors who would appear in a different drama each week (like Four Star Playhouse). Others would have different actors and stories set in the same ‘shared world’ (like Welcome To Paradox). Many anthology shows would have a … Continue reading
You know the term well. The dreaded re-make! We are certainly in an era of history repeating itself. Though as in this list, history doesn’t always mean better. This list of turds is our tribute to the worst of the remakes to come along in the horror genre. As an incentive, many of these movies spawn from the influence of great films. So while they may not be up to par, the films they were … Continue reading
