  • Afflicted- Vampires Without The Sparkle

      Afflicted pleasantly surprised me. I’m not usually the biggest vampire fan nowadays due to too many fangs dripping in glitter but there’s definitely no sparkly bits here. I would definitely recommend this movie to vampire and non-vampire fans alike. Afflicted starts with the sendoff of two back packing BFF’s Clif Prowse and Derek Lee, who are also the writers and directors of the movie, who have genuine great chemistry, heading on a once in a lifetime around the world [...]

17 of the Most Memorable Scream Queens in Horror

Jamie Lee Curtis is one of 16 of the Most Memorable Scream Queens in Horror

‘Scream Queen’ is a label that was once worn with trepidation but it has evolved over the years in to a title that those on which it is bestowed can be proud. Not every actress that makes a horror film is a scream queen. Only a select few performers that have made noteworthy contributions to genre film and become closely affiliated with the horror genre can rightfully call themselves scream queens. To honor some of our all time favorite leading [...]

Unlikely Horror Heroes that Saved the Day

Simon Pegg in Shaun of the Dead is among unlikely horror heroes that saved the day

Horror films sometimes seem like they are taking place in an alternate reality where the rules of real life and logic don’t apply. The biggest and strongest characters are often the first to go and it’s not uncommon to see a killer taken down by someone half their size. The hero or heroine is almost always someone that didn’t know he or she was the heroic type until they were thrown into a situation where they had to go ahead [...]

Cropsey- The Boogeyman of Staten Island

A missing poster from the movie documentary Cropsey.

Cropsey started as the legend the filmmakers heard as kids. It narrows into both an investigation into Andre Rand, the Boogey Man of the operation, and the modern history and character of Staten Island, where the movie’s directors, Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, grew up terrified of the Cropsey myth. The infamous unnerving tale became a reality in 1987, when the body of 12-year-old Jennifer Schweiger was found buried outside the disused mental institute Willowbrook State School. The appalling conditions [...]

Most Memorable Final Girls of Horror

Horror Films You Probably Didn’t Know are Based on Books

Amy Irving in The Fury - Horror Films You Probably Didn't Know are Based on Books

It is commonplace for films, television series, and other art forms to take old ideas and recycle the concept into something new. This has been demonstrated ad nauseam by the staggering number of horror film remakes that were greenlit by studios in the early to mid 2000s. The reboot trend seems to be dying out but has been replaced by the new phenomenon of adapting feature films for the small screen. Before remakes were en vogue, it was very commonplace [...]

Horror Films that Should have Had Sequels

Bruce Campbell as Elvis in Don Coscarelli's Bubba-Ho-Tep, one of several horror films that should have had sequels

Like most things in life, horror sequels are a mixed bag; sometimes they are awful, sometimes they are great, and sometimes they are just OK. Sequels are often the greedy attempt of film studios to replicate the success (profits) of a well-received film. Oftentimes, these follow up efforts backfire and the picture ends up being a box office failure because the film didn’t warrant a sequel. But in some cases, the second installment in a series blows the audience away [...]
