Whether you’ve personally experienced it or simply heard your share of other people’s horror
It’s safe to say that we’ve created our share of iconic horror characters here in America. Horror icons like Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael Myers (Halloween), or Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th) are so highly recognizable, that they’re pretty much synonymous with the mere concept of a horror movie. Even so, no country handles horror quite like Japan does.
Japanese horror films have a much-deserved reputation for... Read More
The Black Room
When it comes to classic horror tropes – like haunted houses and the dark secrets they hide – there’s definitely more than one way to approach material that is very familiar to the average genre fan by now. More and more modern filmmakers are adopting a cerebral approach and turning their haunted house movies into social commentaries with something larger to say. Others are focused on simply telling a good scary story with plenty of jump scares and special effects. Still more go for an exploitive approach that is almost intentionally trashy. The Black Room...

Hereditary - Evil runs in the family
“Hereditary” is a literally "homemade" horror. The physical home, as a place of family life and as creative microcosm of Annie, and the metaphysical home, as a dreamlike symbol of the stability or instability of the Ego, are inextricably intertwined in a game of Chinese boxes : a husband , a son, a daughter, and a miniaturist job she loves. But also a bulky mother: Ellen.
Annie has always been trying to fix her "home": and soon we realize that something, in addition to the ambivalent relationship between her and the now defunct Ellen, does not work. Starting from Charlie, an... Read More

Top ten horror book recommendation ~ January 2019
THREE DAYS IN ASHFORD by TY Tracey I can strongly affirm that I started the year with one of the greatest discoveries I have done as a reader. "Three Days in Ashford" —the town that Satan calls home is a perfect conglomerate of solid disturbing elements combined to mould your mind in the shape of terror. Discover the truth of Hell and Heaven, punishment and denied redemption. How the "gods" delight themselves tearing apart our spirit. The inevitable doom our souls suffer when we precipitate towards the "hunger" of the most abominable "lovely" creatures the Universe provides our eternity with... mybook.to/... Read More
Four of the Most Terrifying Horror Films of All Time
It’s fair to say horror movies are given something of an unfair press. Unlike romance, drama, and sci-fi, they’re frequently looked upon as the poor relation and subjected to vicious critical attacks. They’re sometimes accused of only wanting to provoke a reaction, as opposed to having any higher aspirations to create screen-worthy cinema or an enduring impact. But that's no more accurate than saying all romantic flicks or dramas are the same. Thankfully, thrillers and horror films finally seem to be getting some of the recognition they deserve. Thanks to a number of classics that have combined strong storylines with masterful... Read More

Horror Movies to Watch on this Christmas 2017
Black Christmas (1974) Getting stabbed by a unicorn head to the ghostly tune of carolers singing “Silent Night” is probably not how you want to spend Christmas Eve. This pre-Scream holiday slasher claims its victims in a sorority house haunted by creepy phone calls (sans ghost mask), demonic noises, bodies eerily shrouded in plastic wrap, and one perverse killer whose voice alone is enough to freeze your blood. When an unidentified caller keeps repeatedly harassing your entire sorority house with obscene things you can only half-understand (because he sounds like a deranged Donald Duck that... Read More
