A horror blog straight from the land of Jason Voorhees, the Toxic Avenger, The Deadly Spawn, Don't Go in the House, Alice Sweet Alice, and the Misfits:

From slashers to demons, cult to mainstream, mad scientists to monsters, fright to fun, and old to new, it's (almost) all here.

CGI has killed Hollywood “magic”.

Especially horror.

"The Decent really disappointed me. It felt like it was building up a plot with the main character’s family dying in the beginning, but the inclusion of the cave monsters just felt like the producers scrapped everything one day and made everything up on the spot."

I enjoyed The Descent. My wife said “The movie was good until Bat Boy appeared. At that point it wasn’t scary, it was stupid.”

“Because of the special effects that keep coming out in newer horror movies, classic films like The Exorcist and Poltergeist aren’t going to seem scary, years from now, to teenagers that watch them.”

NEWSFLASH: The older effects that were used are far more realistic than CGI. It’s amazing how bad CGI can be considering how advanced technology has become. I’d much rather see older effects and puppets. This person is nuts.

Video Nasties 2 : Draconian days.

The UK in the eighties and nineties was not a good place to be a horror film fan, the movies horror fans love became the subject of blame for all manner of crimes and social ills which resulted in an incredible amount of censorship.

This documentary chronicles the years in which police seized video tapes, fans created their own black market, people where jailed and the media actually blamed horror movies for murder.

A shameful time for censorship, and a great subject for a documentary.

“I love horror movies but I hate the “jump scenes” every time I watch a horror film with a jump scene I end up having a hysterical breakdown. I had to watch Women in Black (2012 version) in school and I had a hysterical breakdown. For me horror films that contain the jump scenes aren’t considered a horror film”

So you pretty much hate every horror film ever made. Also, if you’re having breakdowns like this, then it’s clearly scaring the shit out of you. Last time  checked, horror is supposed to do that.
