Seven Great Songs That Were Ruined by Horror Movies

Music is an essential component of a horror film’s atmosphere. Without Bernard Herrmann’s atonal orchestra, PSYCHO wouldn’t be half the masterpiece that it is.

Behold the Terrifying Tunes of Tobacco!

It’s not news to any genre fans that horror films and electronic music go hand in hand.

This is awesome! Courtesy of the wonderful world of Instagram, our own Ryan Turek turned me onto the work of artist Butcher Billy. One of the fun things Butcher Billy does is take famous, well-known pop songs and turn them into the titles of vintage horror novels. I mean, as a kid, I used to […]

F**K POLITENESS: The Revolution of MY FAVORITE MURDER

As a life-long fan of professional wrestling and horror movies, I always felt like the odd-girl out in my peer groups. As I got older, my tastes grew even further away from what was expected, and a sense of isolation began bubbling bigger and bigger. Luckily, the horror and film community took to the internet […]

NSFW: BODY COUNT’s Latest Is The Metal Album We Need Right Now!

A few days ago, a friend of mine on Facebook posted a link announcing that “Rage Against The Machine were getting back together for a new album and tour!” And when I clicked over to the actual article, it turned out to be one of those annoying prank “FOOLED YOU” links. And I thought, of […]

Our Heavy Metal Horror Quiz Will Have You Screaming for Mercy!

CREEPYPASTA: The Notorious “Unwanted Houseguest” Stars in Music Video “Ghost Me!”

Among the lore of scary memes, one of the all-time creepiest is a hand-drawn “self-portrait” of a sinister, smiling boogeyman whose face has been accompanied by hundreds of ominous captions — nearly all of which involve this mystery monster lurking somewhere in the reader’s home. This nightmarish reputation has earned the character the popular nickname […]

Red Bats with Teeth: The Awesome Soundtrack of LOST HIGHWAY

One could easily guess my age by how often I vaunt the 1990s as the height of all popular culture. To remove any ambiguity, I’ll save you the estimations: I was born in 1978. And while I admit I can be overzealous about the decade of my formative years (I turned 16 in 1994), I […]

MISFITS Guitarist Starring in Remake of Cult Fave DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT
