Top 20 Cult Film Directors

Stanley-Kubrick-cultfilms

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.

Alcatraz-tv-series

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.

Vampire Movie Favourites

When I asked Horror News readers and Facebook friends to tell me their favourite vampire films, I received a terrific response.

Top 10 Chainsaw Use Horror Movies

Chainsaw-Banner

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

Top 10 J-Horror Movies (Japanese Horror Movies)

ju-on-thegrudge-banner

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

Key Genre Films 1980s

1980s-montage-2

How things have changed. In the forties, for instance, one would find it difficult to name twenty good genre films of the decade but, since the late seventies, Hollywood has learned that their baby-booming audiences could not only handle strong horror and science fiction concepts, they craved them. Filmmakers everywhere went into overdrive. Like television today, there wasn’t a production house around that didn’t have at least one genre project in the making.
