Top 13 Great Horror Movies that start with D

dog-soldiers

1. Dog Soldiers (2002)

This is most definitely one the best modern werewolf movies. Even though the werewolves remind me of the ones from The Howling, this movie is one of the most original to come out in years. The military in the Scottish Highlands, fighting the children of the night? Yes, please! Expecting to carry out a routine training mission, the soldiers find the ravaged remains of a Special Forces squad who were … Continue reading

13 HORROR VILLAINS THAT COULD ACTUALLY KILL YOU

Now we all know horror movies are just that, movies, and the characters on screen could never actually come into our bedrooms and kill us…or could they? Now I’m not talking about the terrors from Aliens or The Descent or even Poltergeist. I am talking about real flesh and blood people that could actually come into your bedroom and drive a stake through your chest. Real people … Continue reading

Top 13 Underated Horror Films

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

1. Dread (2009)
This movie came and went under the radar with little fanfare notice save a few features in Fangoria. Although it’s no surprise no one’s seen this, because it was one of After Dark Horrorfest’s movies this past year.

However, this movie is one that cannot be missed. It is the best Clive Barker adaptation ever. I will never see a movie starring one of the people from Twilight… except for Jackson … Continue reading

Top 10 Horror Movies that need a DVD release

Movies-that_TheUncannyBox[1]

With technology constantly changing, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with it all. VHS tapes used to be the most popular form of movie-watching around, but with the invention of DVDs, Blu-Ray discs and Video on Demand, not many people (except me) buy VHS tapes anymore. Some people don’t even own a VCR. There are many good horror films that have not yet received a DVD release which is very unfortunate.

Many films have … Continue reading

Creature profiles: Headless Horseman

The_Headless_Horseman_4

Hooves pounding on cobblestone swiftly approach you as you cross the creaky bridge about to leave town to fetch wood. Your heart basically unearths itself from your chest, it is beating so hard. The legends cannot be true, you think to yourself. You are frozen, an icicle above a slow-trickling river, as if hung from a tree branch, which would slowly melt and cascade into the water. You felt as if you … Continue reading

Exclusive Horrornews Interview – A Skylit Drive guitarist Nick Miller:

How do you think your music would identify with horror fans?

Our music can sound pretty scary. If Cory and Brian’s screams don’t scare you at any point on our new album, Identity on Fire, there might be something wrong with you.

The year 2010 was a bit fragmented in terms horror / thriller tv shows. Though at least we had 10 worth mentioning which might have not been the case years back.

2010 was the year of carry-overs with very little in the way of new debuts. Though even without alot of new material coming at us we managed to squeeze in one of the greatest horror series of all time. If anything, 2010 will be … Continue reading
