10 Horror Movies With Hidden Activist Agendas

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists

guest post by Charles Reis Horror movies are pop culture staples in America and much of the rest of the industrialized world, too.

The 10 Scariest Video Games Of The 2000’s

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists, Zombies

Just as with movies, the horror game genre during the 2000’s was a hit or miss phenomena. There were video games released that induced almost unbearable primordial fear and Xanax-defeating panic, while others were so laughably stupid they are lucky to be considered campy. Fortunately, we have endured the survival of this genre, with its […]

Babadook and the Unspeakable Horrors of Parenting

Entertainment, Horror Movies

Parenthood has been a theme in horror since the invention of horror.  A parent must protect their child from the horrors of the world.  When that child is in danger, humans kick into pure survival mode, becoming a bestial composite of man, giving into animal instinct.  But, what if being a mother itself is the […]

Seeing how A Nightmare on Elm Street celebrates its 30th birthday in November, we’ll surely see tons of tribute/retrospective pieces about the film and its glove-wearing protagonist hit the web. Well, we’re joining the party a little early with this post, but we’re also taking it in a different direction. Instead of discussing the impact […]

“Night Of” Horror Movie List

Entertainment, Horror Movies, Lists

Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) I first saw Dark Night of the Scarecrow when I was nine years old and, appropriately enough, it was on TV. It used to be that not every made-for-TV movie made for network television was terrible—just MOST of them were. You used to get gems like this, Duel (Spielberg’s […]

The Best Horror and Sci-Fi Sequels

Entertainment, Horror Movies

Guest post by Billy Russell Sequels are largely terrible. Most sequels are created specifically to cash in on the success of something that was original and money is the prime motivation for its creation, not artistic expression. But sometimes, just sometimes, you’ll catch a part two or even a part three that captures the spirit […]

Oculus, A Great Drive-in Movie

Horror Movies

Review by Billy Russell Going to the ol’ drive-in is still one of the most fun ways to experience a movie. You don’t go to the drive-in if you’re obsessively concerned with having the best possible sound and audio quality surrounding you with such pristine remasterings that any flaw or error will stand out like […]

Incredible Movie Poster Art by LAURENT DURIEUX!

Entertainment, Horror Movies

They don’t make movies posters like they used to …or do they? We’ve recently been drooling over the movie poster art of Laurent Durieux, who has risen from the ashes of a dying art form. The days are long gone when movie posters were thrilling conceptual works of art you’d proudly displayed on the walls […]

From the VHS Vault: Habit (1995)

Entertainment, Horror Movies

There’s just something about thrift store finds. You see something on tape with a bizarre cover and a semi-promising recommendation from Roger Ebert on the front explaining that it’s a realistic vampire movie, whatever that means. But, since the price tag on it is $0.99, it’s not much of a gamble. If it sucks, chuck […]

The Worst Horror Movie Remakes Of All Time!

Horror Movies, Lists

With the good come the bad…the flip side of Billy Russell’s previous remake list, the worst horror movie remakes of all time! Halloween I had a hard time going back and forth on this. When considering a movie as a terrible remake, do you consider the movie on its own standalone terms or do you […]
