[video] the top 5 horror tropes of all time


“movies like this end when the final girl kills the main bad guy.” a whole lot has been written and said about the inherent tropes found within the horror genre, and even horror films such as scream and the cabin in the woods have brilliantly deconstructed them. what more needs to be said? well, nothing […]






‘game of thrones’: why the white walkers and wights represent the best and worst


here's what goes wight and what goes wrong when "game of thrones" plays with zombie tropes.






‘the mask’ was originally going to be a horror movie?!


chuck russell has made some pretty cool movies throughout his career. he’s of course known in the horror world for directing a nightmare on elm street 3: dream warriors and the blob (1988), one of the best horror sequels of all time and one of the best horror remakes of all time. he subsequently directed jim […]

what was the final horror film officially released on vhs?


we love useless fun facts. so let’s explore this one. for many horror fans, the first introduction to horror cinema came courtesy of the video shops that sadly closed down long ago. the vhs era is downright synonymous with the horror genre, the lurid box art that we still hold so near and dear responsible […]

[review] ‘clowntergeist’ doesn’t have enough fun with the premise


one of the horror genre’s most famous and long-lasting tropes is the perversion of seemingly innocent iconography in an attempt to scare the audience when they’re at their most vulnerable. at this point, however, we seem to be more familiar with the “scary” perverted image of clowns than their kid-friendly roots, so it’s no surprise […]






5 highest-grossing horror films of all time


how much do people really pay to be scared out of their mind at the movies? the short answer: a lot! director m. night shyamalan really knows how to bring in the bucks, as he directed two of the top highest-grossing movies that hit theaters: signs and the sixth sense. the latter scored the top spot and brought in a whopping $672 million in ticket sales, while signs raked in a cool $408 million. jaws chewed its way to second place on the list and cashed in for over $470 million. for the full breakdown of the biggest horror moneymakers of all time at the box office — see where hannibal and the exorcist land on the list — watch the video above, courtesy of coinage, time inc.’s personal finance video company.






tv review: archer: dreamland indulges in a taste for noir


it’s 1947 los angeles. or at least, that’s the conceit. in truth, it’s an imaginary l.a. made up of gumshoe noir tropes, from the femme fatale torch-song singer to the sharp-talking gangsters to the mysteries that grow more byzantine with each passing moment. into this world of smoky nightclubs and back-alley double dealings comes a private eye, one hand firmly around a flask, the other on the handle of a gun. he’s got a single-minded purpose, and nothing will keep him from getting to the bottom of the case. unless he sees an unattended cop car—then, he’ll take a little time from his zealous cause to draw a penis on the back of the vehicle.that’s archer: dreamland at its essence: a chance for one of tv’s more outrageous comedies to indulge in its penchant for old-school tropes while doing






‘the cabin in the woods’ getting 4k release in september!


after scream wrote the book on meta horror, several movies that came in its wake tried to subvert the genre in their own way. but perhaps none did it better than drew goddard’s the cabin in the woods, released in 2012. the film cleverly tackled the genre’s tropes, while also uniting many of cinema’s most iconic […]






porn-themed horror comedy ‘deep murder’ gets a legit cast


much like sports, porn and horror don’t really mesh well, which is probably why porn-centric genre films always end up on home video. but when was the last time we saw one that had a really good cast? deep murder, nick corirossi’s horror comedy set inside the world of soft-core pornography, has landed christopher mcdonald, […]

dario argento writing new horror movie and “book of black fairytales”


oh good, so dracula 3d won’t be his last horror film. as we noted last month, dario argento is working on a new horror movie that he’s been particularly coy about. all argento really said at the time was that he was he developing “something new” that falls into the horror genre, and he expounded […]






‘xx’: horror anthology clip features terrifying creature mayhem


the new horror anthology xx features a quartet of stories from directors karyn kusama (the invitation), annie clark (a.k.a. singer-songwriter st. vincent), former rue morgue magazine editor jovanka vuckovic, and roxanne benjamin (south bound). the latter serves up a bite-sized terror tale called don’t fall, which stars angela trimbur (so great in the final girls) and breeda wool and concerns a camping trip which goes horribly awry when a group of friends attract the attention of desert-dwelling something-or-other. “the idea for don’t fall came to me at a time when i’d been thinking a lot about the conventions of the classic around-the-campfire tales we all heard as kids, and more often that not fell for,” says benjamin, who previously directed a segment of last year’s southbound. “the shor






[tiff review] ‘veronica’ is a stylish, albeit familiar, possession film


as a subgenre, it’s hard to find a possession/exorcism film that stands out. veronica, by famed spanish director paco plaza (one-half of the original rec team), doesn’t earn its stripes as a dramatic reinvention of familiar genre tropes, but the film is a solid effort with some pretty effective chills. like so many horror films, […]

overlooked indie horror films you should watch: volume 5

why ‘amityville ii: the possession’ is superior to ‘the amityville horror’


of all the horror franchises in existence, the amityville horror series might be the strangest, with very loose connections between them. spanning 18 films, most direct-to-video, that spawned from the bizarre case of the defeo family in amityville, new york in 1974, and subsequent book based on the site of the murders. released in july […]

[sxsw review] ‘game of death’ is a subpar entry in the millennial horror subgenr


all too often horror fans (myself included) demand more gore in horror movies. the pg-13 rating is condemned for watering down one of the most enjoyable aspects of the genre. the r rating is often wrongly associated with high-quality horror. after all, if a horror film is gory, it has to be good, right? as many of you know, that […]
