Would You Get This 3D Ring Tattoo?


The Ring still stands the test of time and is one of the best horror movies made in the last couple decades. The scene where the little dead girl climbs out of the well and reaches through the television set is an all time classic–hands down. The Ring 3D Handpainting by Luca Luce Posted by […]

Ti West: Burgeoning Master of Subtle Horror

Horror Movies

Post by Billy Russell One of the freshest directors working in horror movies these days is Ti West. His movies are unique in that he cherishes suspense almost as much as a pay-off. It’s refreshing to see a filmmaker take pride in fear-making and not just the amount of blood that can feasibly be made […]

Insidious 2 is a Bank Heist

Horror Movies

We were huge fans of the first Insidious film but, unfortunately, last night we discovered that for the sequel the filmmakers decided to take some kind of dissociative psychedelic drug while writing the script. The opening scene is unspeakably boring. Characters discuss the paranormal as though they’re in an episode of Are You Afraid Of […]

The Conjuring: James Wan’s Horror Masterpiece

Entertainment, Horror Movies

Guest Post by Billy Russell Tonight is a perfect night for a horror movie. From my window, I can see flashes of lightning illuminating a half-dead tree with dying, brown needles shedding off of it and decaying on the ground below.

We’re in the Golden Age of the found footage genre. In the empire of the panopticon, horror movies thrive off 24/7 street surveillance, surgical cameras, security cameras, microscopic cameras, smartphones, webcams, etc. We live in a hunted, stalked society, consumed and regurgitated like a freshly turned zombie’s black bile. Cameras are everywhere–watching our carefully scripted […]

Frankenstein and the Gothic Tradition


The Ghost Diaries now offers the first in a series of book reviews of classic horror novels: Frankenstein and, soon enough, Dracula. Although, admittedly, this is more about the development of the gothic tradition than the plot or characters. You’ll also notice an emphasis on the importance of science fiction in the development of the […]

The Singularity Vs. The Zombie Apocalypse

Entertainment, Zombies

Now that Ray Kurzweil is on Google payroll to build an artificial mind and the US government has an official zombie uprising protocol, two once dissonant trajectories of the human race–transcendence via the Singularity and mass human extinction via the zombie apocalypse–appear closer to fruition than ever. The question now is: which will happen first, […]
