Let’s face it, not everybody is afraid of the same things. What scares some people may not faze others, and this is particularly true when it comes to horror films. I am a huge horror fan and I have seen a ton of horror films in my lifetime (I got started early thanks to my mom and favorite uncle who both got me into the genre at a very young age). I’ll admit that some … Continue reading
A horror list most likely way overdue. I’ve always had a soft spot for supernatural characters. The ones that stick out are characters who seem to possess powers that warp time, space, and everything around them. Consider it sort of a technique for making nightmarish things happen that you wouldn’t find happening within a film like “Halloween” or “Friday the 13th”.
You definitely wouldn’t find it in zombie films, vampire films or aquatic creature films. … Continue reading
Top 10 Scariest: Youtube Edition
by Michael James Grise
Youtube is full of videos and every once in a while you happen to stumble one one that gives you chills. The scary thing is that it’s hard to tell if these video are fictional. Now there definitely is some very obvious hoax videos out there but, are some of these real? Here is my list of the videos that I personally think are either … Continue reading
While many times lists such as these are projected right around New Year, it is s also harder to determine which of the films rumored or completing production will “actually” arrive in the year they say they will. Instead we took a step back to gather what we feel are the anticipated films that we’re “pretty sure” will deliver this year. It’s also worth noting that a few have arrived or are in theatres as … Continue reading
Thought I forgot about you , eh? Well have no fear, as we finish up our study,report on the “Top 25 Coolest Unique Horror Movie Characters” Part II Hey! – missed the first part of this article? Then make sure to click of to Part 1 of “Top 25 Coolest Unique Horror Movie Characters”
I know. I know that it’s been a while since you’ve seen anything new here on HNN from your pal The Black Saint. I hear the cries from the huddled masses…”WHY HAVE YOU SO FORSAKEN US”? My loyal acolytes were left on a ship with no rudder for awhile and for that I must apologize. Apparently the tendons in my hands aren’t in as good a shape as they should be & I had to … Continue reading
Hankering for some “New Years” themed Horror Films?? Well I’m Here to tell ya, there isn’t much. In fact this might present an opportunity for filmmakers to create a “New Year’s” horrorÂ film seeing that they get mentioned “every” year at this time (on lists like this)…just saying.
Hey, theme driven horror films can have certain lasting qualities in relation to their event. For instance…Thanksgiving. how many films are rooted in that Holiday? 1? 2? 3? … Continue reading
When I started this list, I was content to stay with the “top 10 coolest horror movie charaters”. In fact, I “thought” I might even have trouble coming up with the 10 that were unique enough (in their own right). Boy was I wrong! Once I started to consider how many different characters we have had (ranging from serial killers, fantasy conceptions, aliens, beasts, monsters and villains), it quickly transformed into …”damn there are too … Continue reading
AÂ STUDY OF ASIAN CAT III (Category 3) FILMS
CAT III, otherwise known as Category 3 is the rating system used on Extreme horror and exploitation films from the Asian market. While the films range from extremely disturbing horror to p*rnographic, this list is primarily focused on the Horror rela(1986)ted titles. Soft p*rn for Asian films are also classified under “Pinku” (pink film) though when the filmmakers blend extreme violence, torture, gore or taboo … Continue reading
We all have people in our lives that just wonâ€™t go away. We try to block them out of our memories, but time and time again they keep showing up and keep bothering us.
This is also true in regards to horror movie villains. In almost every horror movie the villain never dies with the first shotgun shell to the head, or even when he is strangled until he stops moving. Somehow the villain always … Continue reading
A serial killer is defined as an individual who has murdered three or more people over a period of more than a month, usually with a cooling-off period between murders, and whose motivation for killing is usually based on psychological gratification. Serial killers are not the same as mass murderers nor spree killers, who usually commit murders in two or more locations with virtually no break in between. There is often a … Continue reading
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
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
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
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

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
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
