Top 15 Water Based Horror Films

deep_blue_sea

It was a conversation from Dai and her not liking aquatic films that prompted me to create this list just for her. As I gathered the most notable titles in this area, I began to realize that there were alot of water-based films that I really liked. In fact, I’ll go as far to say as “favorites”. Though there is a bit of difficulty when creating a purely aquatic list. That being the level … Continue reading

Top 10 Horror Films from the 90′s That Weren’t Awful

wishmaster-2-evil-never-dies

Of course, we all remember the Scream films and maybe include The Blair Witch Project on a list of non-sucky 90′s horror flicks, but as a young one coming up in that decade, I remember the theaters containing a whole lot of awful horror.

Granted, I enjoyed the film greatly, but I remember at one time that Wes Craven’s New Nightmare was the best horror film I’d seen in a theater. If that doesn’t indicate … Continue reading

exorcist1-510x196

With Halloween around the corner, we wanted to make sure we included our mark on the top 20 scariest films of all time. The selections have been scrutinized over and in fact mirror many other such lists. Though we’d added a few surprises that I think get forgotten from time to time. I wanted to point out something painfully obvious.

Alot of our scariest films occurred at the 70′s end years. I don’t think it’s … Continue reading

The 13 Coolest, Most Badass Bad Guys in Horror Movie History

hannibal_lecter-large

So, in my mind, amongst horrible and bloody thoughts of you, I have a growing mass of villains and horror icons that I both love and admire and yet, have never really seen any such compilation from any other esteemed and notable columnist that wasn’t the same old regurgitated sh*t being used over and used over for the sake of churning out another mediocre horror-themed article. It occurred to me while drunk and sharpening axes, … Continue reading

We are gonna talk about the top horror/macabre families that most horror … Continue reading

Top 10 Most Stereotyped Characters in Horror Films

tiffany_shepis

Every horror fan knows that horror films have more stereotyped characters in them than a rabbi, priest and a black guy who walk into a bar. But why is this? Is it because these types of people are so easy to make fun? Or is it because there is just a shortage of original ideas for characters? Look at it this way, we all like to see the dumb blonde die, or the stupid teenage get his … Continue reading

Top 10 Phrases said or Screamed while watching a Horror Film

screaming-scared-horror-movie-face-2

We’ve all done it, sometimes even in a theater. No, not THAT. I’m talking about saying or screaming different phrases while watching a horror movie. These phrases may be something as simple as whispering under your breath or yelling at the top of your lungs in a crowded movie theater. 

Most of these random outbursts are during a really horrible horror movie when there is nothing better to do then yell at the TV or … Continue reading

Top 10 Zombie Films Worth Your Time

Zombie-movies-horrornews.net

I sit to begin this list with the background noise of Romero’s Day of the Dead playing, and it’s a great flick to have as motivation for putting together a list like the one I’m about to compile.

It’s not a part of this list, which is no slight; this list isn’t necessarily about the best, most common or most loved zombie flicks. If it was, Day of the Dead would probably be around #6 … Continue reading

 I am not talking about Sadism and Masochism or affectionately abbreviated S&M a favorite past time of… well that is a whole other story… Torture can be perceived as one of the earliest forms of entertainment.

Very popular during the Medieval ages and still popular today with the popularity of the Saw Series of movies whose total budget for all 6 films was $47Million but has taken in a cool $731million+ or close … Continue reading

Top 10 Horror Movies that got me thru Highschool

PhantasmIIAngusScrimmTheTallMan

In a sentence that I feel will hit hard at home with a bunch of horror fans, I wasn’t a wildly popular young man as my high school career began. Through time and fiercely sticking to being the man that I am, I won over a great deal of folks, but it was certainly a war of attrition, one that took people I liked, lusted for and loved away from my life throughout the years.

Top 10 Movies that Scared the Hell Out of Me

michael_myers-big

I realize that different things scare different people. I am scared to death of clowns, monkeys, and robots (God help me if I am ever attacked by a robot dressed like a clown that has a pet monkey with it, while these things may not bother anyone else in the least little bit. The same thing can be said about movies. I know a lot of people who were really freaked out by “The Blair … Continue reading

Top 60 Disturbing Horror Music Videos of All Time – Part 1

tool_sober_thumb_xlarge

While, it’s fair to say that music videos don’t get as many opportunities to explore horror themes as I would like, there still is an impressive helping of ones over the years that have visited the horror genre in an interesting way. We owe some of the greater accomplishments to video directors such as Floria Sigismondi, Samuel Bayer and Chris Cunningham.  I’ve assembled a pretty eclectic mix of horror themed music videos that have paid … Continue reading
