Get Your Ghoulish Groove On With These Horror Movie Musical Numbers

Music is one of most important elements in every genre, but if you want haunting melodies that will send chills down your spine, go no further than the nearest horror movie. Over the last decade in particular, we’ve experienced some extremely memorable horror film scores and soundtracks — the screeching piano line that sets the […]

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: The Mind-Bending Horror Short FACE OF 4!

You may already be familiar with the creative output of Alexander Azzi — already known to the music world as electronic music producer, DJ and composer Drop Goblin. I covered Alex’s music frequently back in the day as music reporter for FEARnet, and his horror-inspired projects have amazed EDM-loving genre fans from around the globe. Now […]

In Defense of M. Night Shyamalan’s THE HAPPENING

It’s good to see M. Night Shyamalan return. With the release of SPLIT, the once-famous-and-then-despised filmmaker has made two quite good films in a row (the other being THE VISIT), and audiences are beginning to acknowledge his talents as a filmmaker never left him. After a string of badly-reviewed and notorious genre films, Shyamalan is […]

Watch the Latest Blumhouse Original Creepypasta Video — LEADER LADY

Following the succulent success of last week’s grisly installment HOSPITAL FOOD (for strong stomachs only), we’re back again with another original creepypasta video – and much like our earlier chapter A LITTLE NIGHTMARE, our latest episode delves into a mysterious footnote in cinematic history. Have you ever watched an older film that still had color bars, […]

EXCLUSIVE: Watch the Freaky New Trailer for BLESSED ARE THE CHILDREN!

2017 is already shaping up to be the year when the horror genre goes all-in to tackle hot-button social and political topics, and while studio releases like Blumhouse’s own GET OUT are likely to inspire a lot of intense conversation soon, don’t forget that independent horror filmmakers have been in there swinging for a long, […]

The Horror! Francis Coppola is Developing the APOCALYPSE NOW Video Game

Get ready for some some crazy news: There’s a new survival horror-style video game in development based on Francis Ford Coppola’s Vietnam epic APOCALYPSE NOW. Before you mentally throw it into the dungheap of shovelware games that crap on classic movies, consider this: Coppola himself is behind the project, and has compiled a development team […]

A Rare Glimpse at Kurt Cobain’s Homemade Horror Movies

Nirvana was one of the defining bands of the 1990s, and a staple in the CD players of Generation X-ers like myself. The day lead singer Kurt Cobain shot himself to death is still a fresh memory, even more than twenty years later. It plays like a horror movie in my mind: coming home from […]

Watch Our Grim and Grisly New Creepypasta Video HOSPITAL FOOD!

The latest installment in our creepypasta web series is definitely not for the squeamish… especially if you’re even slightly afraid of visiting the hospital. All others, brave on… I won’t get too deep into plot spoilers on this episode, but you can probably tell from the title it’s not going to end happily for the […]

CREEPYPASTA: This Footage Allegedly Has the Power to Summon “ZALGO”

It’s hard to know where to begin when sorting out the twisted meme widely known among the creepypasta community as “Zalgo” — which seems to involve either an unseen supernatural force, a secret cabal, or perhaps even an evil demigod, the likes of which H.P. Lovecraft himself might have mused about. However, one thing Lovecraft […]

Celebrating the Hilarious Horrors of MONTY PYTHON!

Genre cross-pollination has always been a concept that — unintentionally or not — can push audiences into directions they might not otherwise go. For horror fans, Monty Python was always a source of humor that traversed the boundaries of acceptability on both TV and at the movies… and consequently, the British troupe’s output helped its […]

When Godzilla ALMOST Fought Frankenstein!

I’m never sure. How seriously am I supposed to take Godzilla? Don’t get me wrong. I love Godzilla movies. In fact, I’ve probably seen more than most people, having – more than once – written holistic retrospectives of the whole series. That means I’ve seen over 30 Godzilla movies. Some are great, some are awful, […]

The Devil’s Member: The Naughty Novelization of WARLOCK

It’s no longer cutting edge to remind you, dear readers, that Steve Miner’s 1989 horror film WARLOCK is an underrated classic. WARLOCK is mentioned so often by horror fans that it should just be considered a well-known horror tentpole by now; just like THE LAIR OF THE WHITE WORM, or the notion of “DIE HARD-as-a-Christmas-movie,” […]

Video Editorial: Why MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE is a Perfect Metaphor for Today’s Political Apocalypse

Okay, here goes… over the past year or so as head writer for this site, I’ve managed to steer clear from explosive socio-political topics in my work. But events of the past few months have forced my hand, and also serve to remind me how my duty as a writer, artist and journalist includes using […]
