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
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
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 13 Goriest Horror Movie Death Scenes
Howdy. I think everyone can agree that violence is awesome. It is something we are taught to appreciate since day one. There is nothing more culturally sophisticated than a nice, well done vision of sadistic, relentless, bloody violence. I’ve noticed that in all walks of life horrific bloodbaths have entertained, inspired, consoled and comforted so many people. There really is no substitute for finding that special someone, curling … Continue reading
Never let it be said that horror posters don’t strike inspiration. Or maybe it’s “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”? You may have performed one of those double takes here and there for good reason. Poster art (and in this case horror poster art) has been recycled for ages in one form or another. While some of these are in a similar themes. Others are just plain rip-offs from the original (I know you’ll … Continue reading
Time travel films easily rank among my favorite through outÂ the genres. Most of the time these movies are presented in a science fiction film foundation (but not all of the time). A film like the comedy “Groundhog Day” is proof of that. With over 200 films created that deal with time travel, trying to create a “top 10 list” is a rather difficult task. Though as they say, things are subjective. I feel these 10 … Continue reading
Look, I’m not a fan of remakes. They tend to be rather pedestrian affairs with only the slightest amount of the originals’ power, and as such most are utter nonsense. Case in point would be remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Amityville Horror, The Grudge, One Missed Call and any number of others in recent years.
The thing is, despite both critical reactions and box-office numbers … Continue reading

The series traces his efforts to (A) track down the founder; (B) keep from hurting innocent lives due to his lycanthropy; and (C) stay one step ahead of folks who wish … Continue reading
