zombie-flesh-eaters-1979--630-75[1]

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

Top 10 Horror Films That Could Be Remade Effectively

basketcaseposter

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 being pretty lousy, … Continue reading
