The 10 Best Halloween Horror Films

the-nightmare-before-christmas

We at HorrorNews.net, know that tis the season to pull out the Halloween themed greats that focus on the Halloween season itself. There isn’t alot of movies that fit the bill, but these will definitely do the trick. Since Nosferatu (1922) rose from his coffin in GM Munreau’s classic silent movie of Dracula, cinematographers have loved to scare the pants off of their audience. No time of the year is better than Halloween to do this, so here … Continue reading

Top 15 Group Isolation Horror Films

horror-group-isolation-films

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

Top 10 Hottest Female Horror Film Leads

top-10-Horror-film-leads

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

Scariest Horror Films

salems-lot-floating-outside-scratching

I’m willing to bet that “scariest horror films” has been uttered or searched for at least once in every horror fans lifetime. If your like me, it was literally several times a year hoping that a new titles would pop out that didn’t include the words “The Exorcist”. (That being meant in a somewhat sarcastic tone) The 1 film that “always” gets mentioned at tables, like someone just discovered the “wheel” (yunno, the drill………… “oh … Continue reading

Top 10 Films for 2011 | Black Saint List

Drive-2011

It has been a interesting year for horror/sci-fi films this year. In my opinion, it’s been something of a down year for genre films. There have been some really good films released this year but by & large I think the bad ones far outweighed the good ones. I even scrambled to watch “The Orphan Killer” & “The Woman” in the last few days because of all the positive press both had received & I … 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

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 movie screen. But sometimes … Continue reading

Piano Death - zombieland

Joey Danikan: you are amazing. Thank you for this idea. I owe you one. 1. Pogo stick—Leprechaun (1993) “Try as they will, and try as they might, who steals me gold won’t live through the night.” So says the leprechaun at the heart of this franchise. Let’s just forget about the sequels, which turned to drivel by the time Back 2 tha Hood came around. The first film was pretty good though. And I could … Continue reading

decker-mask-large

So, we figured it’d be fun to do our round-up of the Top Ten Horror Movies to Feature a Mask. Dust off your dead skin mask, put on some Slipknot and heat up the popcorn. 10 – Predator (1987) Any … Continue reading

The Art of Reviewing Horror Films – A website perspective

dvd-r

As the founder and CEO of Horrornews.net, I can say it’s been an interesting ride seeing, watching and receiving so many horror films per month. I imagine that other sites who offer the same are also pretty inundated with a mailbox full of screeners. For those who don’t run horror sites, I’m sure you are wondering how it all works and what the process is. After all, there hasn’t been a book written on this … Continue reading
