How did the Upcoming Horror of 2017 turn out?

As I´ve already pointed out horror went down a storm in 2017 but back in January I wrote a preview of some of those films and more. So how did they turn out? Were our hopes and dreams realised, or just dashed across the tarmac with lower intestines dripping down the storm drain? The Autopsy…

Upcoming Horror in 2018

Here we are at the start of the year and there’s plenty to look forward to. Some will be bollocks and some will probably not come out at all, but if its half as good as last year then we are in for some right tasty treats… (I´ve put UK dates where I can, otherwise…

Top Ten Horror Movies of 2017

2017 was a terrible year in many ways, but not in horror. There are a couple in this list which are out and out classics and there many other fine features worth a look. Beyond this lot and a few others I clearly missed (The Ritual maybe?) I´m not sure that this year has quite…

How Did The Upcoming Horror Films Of 2016 Turn Out?

At the beginning af 2016 there was much to look forward to. How wrong I was! Certainly in the real world. As for the horror movies?  Well here I’m having a look back at the films I was looking forward to last year. How did they all turn out? Let’s have a look shall we?…

Upcoming Horror in 2017

Considering how little money is spent on the average horror movie it comes as a surprise that 2017 has a lot of big budget studio scary movies coming out. This is in part due to a renewed, and long overdue, interest in Stephen King’s novels but also long gestating projects have gone before the cameras to…

Top 10 Horror Movies of 2016

So as no one mourns the end of 2016, least of all me, we can at least take some comfort in the fact that it was another solid year for horror. Not that it was always easy to WATCH horror movies with all the awful things going on in the world. This last year has…

12 Awful Human Monsters in Horror Movies

I’m not that keen on humanity as a whole at the moment. Certain groups keep on making really stupid decisions which ruins things for the rest of us who, weirdly are just trying to spend our lives being nice to each other. So where better to escape from reality than the comfort of a good…

Upcoming Horror in 2016

Well 2015 was a pretty good year all in, and perhaps 2016 will continue this happy trend. There’s already at least one classic in the list (The Witch) and also a sequel to a classic (The Conjuring 2), but then there’s also more found footage, more zombies and yet another Texas Chainsaw movie… Okay so…

Top Ten Horrors of 2015

As I bleed all over my keyboard from a grisly kitchen accent involving my fingers, a sink of murky water and a rather sharp meat slicer it occurs to me what a great year last year was for horror movies. So difficult it was difficult to pin down just ten films which were fantastic examples of…

Ten Horror Part Fours

By the time a horror series reaches part four it has usually ran out of ideas and energy. This isn’t always the case of course but more often than not the films are now only being made for the money. That’s not to say that there aren’t people trying to make the best films they can, of…

Ten Sexy Monsters You Do Not Want To Have Sex With

Sex in horror movies is nearly always a bad idea. Just ask any hot young couple in any given Friday the 13th film and they will tell you that it doesn’t end well, usually with the pair of them being pinned together with a javelin. If you can avoid being killed by a masked psychopath by…

Top Ten Head Hits

Really, despite the hard outer skull the head is a delicate thing. In the movies its even more so as its a visceral image, having a head cut off, sliced open, shot at and blown apart. It often is the last moment of a scene because you can’t really top a head splat and also because for…
