Spooky movie releases to anticipate this month

Posted on

True horror lovers know that the fun doesn’t stop after Halloween. In fact, it’s just about to get ramped up with the addition of so many creep-tastic installments this November. Who knows, maybe you’ll even be able to add some horror movie pops to your ever-growing collection after you see the scenes from these unsettling new horror films?  

Doctor Sleep (November 8)

Who can forget the classic, psychological thriller that stole our hearts back in 1980? “Sometimes human places, create inhuman monsters,” and Jack Torrence’s supernatural character possessed such a spine-chilling performance that fans of “The Shining” have notably collected horror movie Pops!, living dead dolls, and time-honored props from the gruesome film. Now, casting a new shadow on a vintage horror story is the upcoming adaptation, “Doctor Sleep”, taken from the 2013 novel written by Stephen King. The contemporary movie follows Danny Torrance into adulthood as he struggles to cope with his childhood trauma following the events at the Overlook Hotel. Battling the effects of alcoholism landed him in a small Massachusetts town, where he becomes “Doctor Sleep”. It’s also where he meets a young girl who possesses the strongest shining capabilities he has ever known. “The world is a hungry place, a dangerous place” and Danny is forced to face the demons of an evil force known as the True Knot to save her from a horrifying fate. 

Koko-di Koko-da (November 15)

As fans of the macabre, we can never get enough twisted tales of devastation, which is why a plot like “Koko-di Koko-da” will have fans flocking to the theatre this month. While you might need some subtitles for this one (unless you speak Danish) you shouldn’t let it discourage you from enjoying this dramatic horror film. When a family is forced to cancel their vacation plans because of a simple case of food poisoning, three years later their derailed plans resurface and forever alter their fates. The once happy, married couple Elin and Tobias, along with their daughter, find themselves reliving the same nightmarish events on an infinitive loop — a sideshow artist and his crazy entourage of malicious minions inflicting torment. So, if you like elevated hauntings, surreal, dark fantasy and a ghastly blend of ominous tunes then you’ll want to watch this story unfold. 

The Lodge (November 15)

Those who’re looking for a horror film that’ll rattle their brains will love the relentless sense of realism that’s portrayed in “The Lodge”. A resented, soon-to-be stepmom is struggling to form a loving relationship with her fiancé’s two children and insistent on molding a new family dynamic dad Richard organizes to spend Christmas at the family’s upscale winter lodge in the woods. Although having to leave unexpectedly for a few days, the three are left less enthused about spending quality time alone in such an isolated place. While Richard is away, strange happenings start to occur that seem to have no explanation, just as the cabin is hit with a fierce blizzard that traps the family. While it seems that Grace is battling the demons of her past, it’s evident that as implausibility creeps in that she must also fight for their lives against this unseen evil force. It’s the perfect cabin-in-the-middle-of-nowhere chiller to get your fix of haunting mysteries and it’s safe to say that this hair-raising movie brings on an extra layer of horrific charm. horror movie pops

Our 5 favorite films to binge-watch before Halloween

Posted on

Whether you prefer stand-alone films or haunting franchises with a grisly cult following, there are so many movies to go batty over as Halloween night inches closer. Needless to say, to the fans who’re obsessed enough to buy horror movies online to watch them year-round, or those who may be on the haunt for some horrifying tales to bewitch the senses, here are some of Nightmare Toys’ most cherished, binge-worthy contenders.   

The Conjuring (2013)

While there are many alarming choices from The Conjuring Universe, none make the same bloodcurdling impression as the first installment in the creep-tastic franchise. For those who have it on their horror bucket list, The Conjuring is a supernatural film that follows a real-life telling of the experiences of the Perron family while living in their Rhode Island farmhouse in the ‘70s. It also gruesomely intertwines demonologists, Lorraine and Ed Warren, as they attempt to investigate these paranormal events. 

Fans of the film should be pleased by our devilishly delightful collection of The Conjuring horror keepsakes, including Annabelle, The Nun, and The Crooked Man.    

Coraline (2009)

Although Coraline is an animation that’s not particularly known for being frightening or gory, the reality is it has some grisly terrifying scenes that were inspired by age-old folktales. So, why hasn’t it been added to your must-watch Halloween list?

Of all the nightmarish monsters in this quivering horror film, none are more brilliantly creepy than, Other Mother. Thanks to Pop! Movies and Pop! Animation, we’ve got an otherworldly collection of Coraline mementos that add alluring diversity to your ever-growing horror collection. Ultimately, who can resist those button eyes? 

Terrifier (2016)

Those looking for a slasher that’s bound to fog their dreams with frightening nightmares should relish in the bizarre darkness exhibited by the film, Terrifier. After all, who wouldn’t want to watch as an unnerving clown maniacally terrorizes his prey on all Hallows eve? Those who’re fans of the homicidal, Art the Clown, can even reanimate the beloved murderer with some of his cult collectibles — including a full-bodied costume, chilling mask, and even a dreadful tee designed to cloak their ghoulish charm.

Carrie (1976)

The days leading up to Halloween wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t include watching one of Stephen King’s iconic cult classics. That’s we recommend that you add Carrie to your list of alarmingly, bone-chilling horror films. An oldie, but a goodie, Carrie is an adaptation of the famed horror novel which follows a teen who faces bullying at school and parental abuse at home. Equipped with supernatural powers, she takes a malevolently dark turn for the worst, making the violent plot sequence a cackling good time for horror lovers. 

If you buy horror movies online and haven’t already acquired this eerie addition, we’ve got an impressive DV that contains all the chilling bonus features. Although if your devotion extends beyond basic film collection, a bloody coffee mug or mini figurine may be enough to tame your loathing heart. 

Chucky (1988 – 2019)

Whether you binge-watch the series or select a slasher favorite from the famed horror franchise, no countdown to Halloween could ever be complete without a heavy dosage of Chuck! After all, his voodoo-chanting is rather mesmerizing to worshipers of the notorious serial killer. So, grab yourself some popcorn and start decorating your crypt with your collection of Child’s Play action figures, pillows, and dolls, dead-icating your evening to the Good Guys! 

Note that some of the above collectibles may be pre-order items and will be shipped on their scheduled dates.

The film, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, at a glance is absolutely terrifying, showing a haunting, scarecrow-like figure as the main image for the upcoming flick. While lately there have been many successful reboots to fuel the fire within horror fans, this movie poses a unique take on a favored novel series.

Another fiercely beloved character from The Conjuring Universe is Annabelle, the demonic, porcelain doll that’s based on an allegedly possessed, real-life Raggedy Ann toy.

Which recent horror production was scarier? Child’s Play or Annabelle Comes Home?

Posted on

**WARNING, THE FOLLOWING BLOG CONTAINS SPOILERS**

The ambiance of movie theatres across the country has been bursting with bloodcurdling terror as two new installments joined the dreaded library within the horror genre. The Child’s Play (June 21) remake and the most recent chapter in the Conjuring Universe, Annabelle Comes Home (June 26) brings a mix of suspense and laughs to believers in supernatural occult. Needless to say, while each film presents its own bizarre story about killer dolls plotting revenge, fans still grasp at the edge of their seats taking in the fresh, unpredictability of the genre. But the real question is, which chilling, cinematic flick is a more startling specter?

A review of Child’s Play

It has been over 30 years since the original Child’s Play film was released, so, horror scriptwriters have dipped their pens into the ink of nostalgia to create another iconic installment.

In our opinion, the modern-day retelling was partially an imitation, since it did cover the same main points of the novel feature — Andy Barclay receives a doll named Chucky as a present from his mom, the sinister toy becomes a problem and he goes on a murderous rampage — although how the story segues from A to B is what sets the two films apart.

What we found most shocking about the remake was that nothing supernatural actually occurred. In fact, the plot failed to follow the hair-raising tale of a cursed, voodoo-chanting serial killer and instead rewrote a story about a piece of artificial intelligence. Notably, the sociopathic murderer is far scarier than a robot going rogue. Nevertheless, the Buddi doll (not Good Guy doll) was the result of a mere upset factory worker neglecting to program the standard safety and non-violent features within the doll. It kind of takes away the aura of magic that the franchise casts. And while there were a few other notable changes, the most powerful one is represented through the obvious change in times. Today’s society is much more in tune to technology, allowing to play a role in how the retelling framed the Chucky doll as a technological robot that was designed to improve our lives. Although, in our opinion, it will not be easy for fans to miss the volatility and gory backstory that’s represented in the many alarming horror collectibles currently on the market. Easily put, a smarter, more advanced Chucky leads to a duller, less scary plot.

A review of Annabelle Comes Home

In only six years The Conjuring Universe has managed to carve their horror installments into chilling genre classics, although, Annabelle has been spotlighted as an eerie-sistable fan favorite. Based on a true story, the real Annabelle doll is kept inside the famous occult museum that was once run by paranormal researchers, Ed and Lorraine Warren. All the installments within the franchise fluidly depicted the real history of Annabelle.

The newest film, however, adds something very different to the mix of supernatural flicks. In fact, Annabelle Comes Home is a riveting addition and quite frankly, the scariest one yet. Embodying all the jump scares, creepy, signature effects and ghostly, drawn-out scenes are all elements that true horror lover’s dream of. After all, isn’t it enticing to watch a movie where around every corner, something goes bump in the night?

Situated in time after The Conjuring, the Annabelle doll is now sitting “safely” behind a locked glass door in the home of the Warrens. Of course, there’s a new, foolish character that decides that they’re brave enough to mess with supernatural forces. Upon entering the room that contains alluring items of the occult, the Annabelle doll is awakened to abrupt a stir of terror within the rooms of the home. Needless to say, you can really feel the grim fear that intensifies when multiple evil spirits begin to terrorize the young, impressionable characters. The best part is that the newest film provides a dim-witted relief trickled within the suspenseful story giving the flick some gentle humor.

So, which installment is scarier? For us, we can’t decide! Now, it’ll be up to you to watch each film and see for yourself.

Can you arm each horror psycho with their iconic weapon?

Posted on

While the satanic personalities, chilling catchphrases and grim appearances of otherworldly horror villains make them alarmingly easy to pick out from a crowd, there’s also another creep-tastic characteristic that embodies their devilish darkness, the bloodcurdling weapons that they use. After all, horror lovers continue to binge-watch the classics in order to see all the gory kill scenes and to keep tabs on their favorite villain’s body count, but only the true fans of the genre will take note of their signature murder tools. So, let’s test your undying devotion to horror!

Jason Voorhees

No one really knows if this ghastly ghoul is a supernatural spirit, a demon-human hybrid or a malicious zombie, but fans love the mysterious franchise and continue to gather up horror collectibles just the same. That being said, while Jason’s frightening eyes are eerily always seen staring at his soon-to-be, lifeless victims through the eyeholes of a hockey face mask, he’s notably been made famous for his ruthless skillset that leads to the hacking, slashing and on some occasion’s decapitation of unruly teens at Camp Crystal. So, how good is your fandom really? What weapon of the macabre does he use?

Freddy Krueger

While a cackling serial killer who stalks your dreams sounds terrifying enough, evidently the mutilation of his burnt flesh is truly something nightmares are made of. So, although there are horror collectibles that attempt to mimic his appearance, the chilling story of Freddy Krueger has been really been made famous through his unique, undead abilities — like paralyzing and killing his victims while they’re in a deep sleep state. Bringing forth night terrors that are so alarming frightening, it’s rare that anybody escapes from his clutches. That being said, what weapon does Freddy use to scrape and slash his victims?

Leatherface

Notably, Leatherface is one of the few iconic killing sociopaths that lacks any pristine supernatural abilities. In fact, he’s just a maniac that lives in the boonies, making his facial expression masks out of the skin of his victims. Driven to kill out of fear rather than malice, you would think that this he would be a little more in touch with human emotion. Needless to say, you wouldn’t want to be caught dead when this villain decides that you’re a threat to him, his family or his livelihood. While there are some graphic horror collectibles and insanely iconic keepsakes that embellish this beloved villain, are you able to remember his favorite weapon of self-defense?

Alright! Drop a comment below to test your fate at the weapon guessing game.

What’s the story behind the villain, Jason Voorhees?

Posted on

It may be hard for you to believe, but the famous Camp Crystal Lake killer actually has many layers that can be peeled back to find an awe-inspiring backstory. While most fans know that Jason Voorhees is a machete-wielding, counselor-slaughtering, hockey-masked zombie, at least this is what all Jason Voorhees horror collectibles convey, there are quite a few fun facts about the how his character, and the Friday the 13th franchise, work to establish an extensive history. So, why exactly is this villain so vengeful?

His mask covers his insecurities

While there are many mischief-makers in the genre that cover their devilish visage as part of their antihero identity, Jason Voorhees wears his illustrious hockey mask to cover up his severe facial deformities. And while fans applaud him for his undead abilities, the franchise reveals that it was because of this disfiguration that he was bullied, and eventually, drowned at Camp Crystal Lake. So, can you blame him for resurrecting from the dead to become a professional, supernatural serial killer?

But, why the hockey mask?

Although we would love to say that there was some in-depth, sentimental imagery behind the time-honored hockey mask, the reason that it became ingrained in Voorhees’ iconic look was simply that the director, Stever Miner, was obsessed with hockey. In fact, the critically-acclaimed hockey mask became so wildly popular that almost every Jason Voorhees horror collectible feature it.

He wasn’t the original killer

While many people believe that Jason Voorhees is just a bloodthirsty monster, with no moral compass or drive behind what he does, that simply isn’t the case. After Jason was drowned at Camp Crystal Lake, his mother, Pamela Voorhees, murdered all the camp counselors. Pamela blamed the lustful teens for her sons’ death because they were too focused on having sex, neglecting to see her son face down in the lake. I guess you could say that he is merely continuing the legacy that she left behind?

His body was never actually found

There are quite a few fandom predictions about what happened to Jason at Camp Crystal Lake — after his death, he became a demon demi-god with the spirit of Jason, he never died, but managed to live in a shelter in the woods or that he’s a rotting, fleshy zombie corpse whose only function is to murder all who he crosses. You get the gist of it. But, since his body was never found in the lake, almost any theory is humanly possible.

What are the most common fears that inspire horror movies?

Posted on

While there are many notable horror movies that creatively craft their plot sequences from pure imagination, there are also those who take inspiration from the primal instincts of the human brain. Whether it’s an emotional reaction to pure darkness, built up tension leading to a striking moment of terror or a simple, unexpected jump scare, these elemental details are what keeps fans of the genre gripping their seats with fear and suspense. Since filmmakers feed on these emotional reactions to create a powerfully, spooky movies, you can pretty much guarantee that screenwriters and directors are known to recycle the same heightened phobias. Whether it’s a time-honored horror flick or a crummy addition to the dreadful genre, you can rest assured that the following horror hang-ups will continue to find their place into the chilling timeline of future films.

Fear of spiders (arachnophobia)

While arachnophobia can range anywhere from mild to severe depending on the person, psychologists believe that it is a fear that is instilled by the conditioning from a loved one. This means that most people who say that they’re fearful of spiders do not necessarily undergo an experience that instills “spider trauma”, but they have been told by a close friend or relative to be scared of creepy crawlies. So, it’s not the fear of being bitten, but rather the fear of their erratic movements and their abundance of legs and eyeballs that fuels this phobia fire. Needless to say, horror movies like Arachnophobia and The Exorcist have really taken the fear of spiders to a whole new level.

Fear of clowns (coulrophobia)

The concept of a creepy, evil clown is nothing new. In fact, horror movies like Stephen King’s IT and the Killjoy franchise have capitalized on it. While coulrophobia is more common in children, this intense fear is known to build up into adulthood. But why are so many people scared of clowns? Psychologists believe that this familiar fear is usually the result of a traumatic childhood experience and since humans rely on facial expressions to understand each other, the exaggerated, distorted, painted-on faces of clowns are something we become fixated and fearful of. Not to mention, clowns are mischievous, uncertain and in many cases portrayed as tricksters. It’s their appearance and unpredictability that makes you wallow is discomfort at the sight of them in horror movies.  

Fear of puppets (pupaphobia)

Although pupaphobia is not as common as some other fears, there are still many people who’re scared of these uncanny hunks of wood and plastic. Although the fear of puppets is also generally developed through a case of childhood trauma, which makes it such a unique phobia is the fact that puppets are not real. Although they’re human-like and realistic in their appearance, the very notion of them moving or talking in any way has the ability to invoke suspicion and uneasiness in anyone. This is probably why Goosebumps’ Slappy and Saw’s Billy Puppet have become such wildly popular horror icons!

A few old but grim horror movies that are worth a re-watch

Posted on

With the breathtaking realism brought on by today’s special effects, it can be difficult to get the jitters while watching the faintheartedness of an old horror movie. But, that’s the thing about this chilling genre, even without the illusions and visual tricks of modern animation, these classics have the ability to haunt you long after the credits roll out. Maybe it’s because they can tap into our deepest fears of the unknown or perhaps the clever suspense gives us this intuitive outlook at what goes bump in the night? Whatever it is that gets your devilish desires wired at the thought of a dark, bloodcurdling plot sequence, since your love of horror only seems to grow with time, honor its gruesome expansion by re-watching a few time-honored thrillers.

Amityville Horror (1979)

This chiller follows the story of a family who becomes terrorized by the supernatural forces tied to their old, 18th century home. If strange voices, violent, wide-spread illnesses and unexplained sores to the body weren’t enough to scare away these homeowners, what was? As the couple, George and Kathy Lutz, experience the unseen forces and malevolent nature of the home, it’s clear that someone or something wants them out. The best part is that this spine-tingling, paranormal film was inspired by a true story, the legend of the Amityville Horror.

The Evil Dead (1981)

This daunting tale commences when five friends take off for a little getaway to a cabin in the woods. Encountering strange noises shortly after arriving, they come across a peculiar book (Book of the Dead) and audio tape in the basement. In playing the tape, they release an evil force that’s hell-bent on murdering them all and they’re forced to try and survive the night by defeating the evil dead. Maybe a re-watch of this horror-ific film would reawaken your deadly senses for your love of horror classics?

Children of the Corn (1984)

While there have been several, contemporary adaptations to Stephen King novels and short stories, Children of the Corn remains untouched by modernity. This spooktacular horror movie tells the story of the Town of Gatlin, a small agricultural community residing in the state of Nebraska. Relying solely on their corn crop for their survival, after a failed reaping, the townsfolk must trust that their religious sacrifice will ensure future prosperous harvests. Following the orders of a demonic god, who is referred to as “He Who Walks Behind the Rows,” the children of Gatlin kill all the adults of the community and maintain their ritual of human sacrifice as each child transitions into adulthood. Already 35-years-old, this classic film is still as riveting and grim as the day it hit the big screen!

Space Day: The perfect excuse to abduct these extraterrestrial must-haves

Posted on

While National Space Day (May 3) is usually dedicated to the extraordinary achievements, benefits and opportunities in the exploration and use of space, as a horror lover you absolutely must dedicate your first Friday of May to all your killer favorite, intergalactic franchises that have abducted your creep-tastic heart over the years. That being said, aside from binge-watching out-of-this-world movies and TV shows you could use this day as an opportunity to browse the web and start adding to your vivid compilation of horror collectibles.

The Star Wars franchise

Not only is today National Space Day but tomorrow is coincidentally enough, Star Wars Day, so, it only seems appropriate to let the force awaken with some extraterrestrial Star Wars merchandise. Why not start by dressing up as your favorite unique franchise character? After all, there is no set calendar day to tell you to join the wise Jedi master Yoda or Darth Vader’s dark side… although getting prepared early for the ultimate Halloween costume is never a bad idea. While you’re at it, why not top off your celestial purchase with a durable lightsaber and a fearsome costume for your canine pal? The deals are strong with this one!    

The Alien franchise

Although this cosmic, interstellar space series is not quite as popular as Star Wars, it’s arguably one of the most terrifying franchises in horror history. That’s why it deserves to be a part of your collection! As someone who can’t get enough when it comes to gathering a number of gruesome and petrifying keepsakes, it seems rather fitting that an assortment of Alien franchise items should be made a part of your spook-tacular assemblage. So, regardless of whether you’re more of a fan of Xenomorphs or Neomorphs, there are plenty of otherworldly horror collectibles that would make frightful additions to your ever-growing collection.

The Killer Klowns from Outer Space

This wacky film plays on two very common fears, clowns and aliens. While the movie is not super well known to mainstream moviegoers, the fearsome gang of killer clowns is about as creepy and common as they come in the horror world. Especially with their objective is to invade, kidnap and kill human inhabitants in order to consume their flesh. Needless to say, no out-of-this-world compilation could ever be complete without the faces of Slim, Fatso, Klownzilla or shorty as gruesome, unique horror collectibles.

Horror movies based on frightful written works

Posted on

While it’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the bloodcurdling excitement of horror movies, in our opinion, it’s equally as riveting to read a mysterious horror novel if you’re looking for a literary fright-fest. Needless to say, while many horror-ific productions actually come from unique, creatively written scripts, there are also quite a few scares that have taken inspiration from some alarming written works. So, since you’ve probably seen some classic horror films that have clawed their way into a special place in your mind, how about immortalizing their plot sequences by reading the delicately detailed novels as well? Although, do you know which of your creep-tastic favorites were horror novels before they sprang to life on the big screen?

Hellraiser

Clive Barker’s seminal horror film, Hellraiser, was actually inspired by the writer/director’s novella that was first published in 1986. Entitled, The Hellbound Heart, this horror page-turner was actually the third installment in a trilogy about an extradimensional realm that contained inhabitants that were dedicated to sadomasochism and human torture. Just like the movie, sexual deviant Frank opens the puzzle box portal and unleashes the gruesome cenobites who begin by tearing his body limb from limb. Whether you’re feeling torn between binge-watching the franchise or simply binge-reading the series, both adaptations have a unique combination of words and imagery to get your chilling imagination stirring.

The Exorcist

William Peter Blatty first published The Exorcist, in 1971 detailing the fictional story of character Regan MacNeil’s demonic possession. Having also written the screenplay for the movie with the same name released in 1973, both adaptations offer almost a word for word conversion between the book and film. Needless to say, although the book was widely popular, it did not possess the same shock factor as its film counterpart. Many critics labeled The Exorcist the scariest movie for its time and to see the spiderlike demon crawling with her body arched was far more horrifying than ever reading about the scene — not to mention the distinct voice and personality that roars and thunders from the girl’s body. That being said, as impressively powerful and traumatizing as both adaptations were, they set the bar pretty high for the horror genre.

Psycho

Whether you enjoy relishing in killer cult film classics like Psycho or you’re more into the A&E network series Bates Motel, you still can’t help but wonder where the inspiration for the story came from. Well, the reality is that author Robert Bloch paved the groundwork for the monumental film in his novel entitled, Psycho, which was published in 1959. One year later the famous slasher by the same name was born and Alfred Hitchcock brought Norman Bates to life on the big screen. All in all, the bones of the book remain intact throughout the film but the movie took on a whole entity of its own.

What’s your favorite horror sub-genre?

Posted on

While last month you may have torn your way through our eerie-sistable blog submission entitled, “What type of horror fan are you? this gruesome go-around we wanted to shed light on some hair-raising specters that may have enchantingly been missed. So, now that your eyes are peeled back into their sockets, join us on the haunt for your favorite horror sub-genre.    

While demonically possessed beings, unstable killers, supernatural realities, unexplained encounters caught on film and obscenely bloody gore may delight your demonic soul, remaining are a few other frightening, gruesome horror sub-genres that are equally as horror-ific and bizarre.

Unearthly Beings

This particular horror sub-genre focuses on the evolution of powerful monsters and the abolishment of the human race. So, if you love films that revolve around the widespread outbreak of a deadly virus, characters who transform into otherworldly beasts or the invasion of apocalyptic survival then you’re probably a fan of this widely popular sub-genre. After all, who couldn’t be obsessed with creatures like zombies, werewolves and vampires? That being said, Dawn of the Dead and The Walking Dead would be the perfect zombie-fired, cinematic terrors for the insanely obsessed.    

Urban Legend

Now, this horror sub-category is incredibly interesting considering how these types of horror movies always seem to claw their way into historical and cultural significances of urban legends. If you’re a person who knows the verifiable chronicle of Dracula’s ties to Romania, how the saga of Frankenstein came to be known or you simply look to the stars for supernatural lifeforms, chances are you’re a fan of urban legend horror. Whether it’s classical or mythological beings that incite a frenzy of emotions, this type of intoxication can only truly be satisfied when you watch haunting horror movies like 30 Days of Night and any installment from the Alien franchise.

Survival & Home Invasion

While this horror sub-genre does not possess the wild popularity of its latter cult followings, the survival and home invasion category of horror, without a doubt, deals with the most overwhelming dose of probability and reality. So, if you get excited at the thought of protecting yourself from a group of crazy burglars or relish in the idea of natural selection in the streets, then this horror sub-genre may be the favored one to rise to the ranks of your horror library. That being said, horror movies like The Strangers and any chapter from the Purge franchise or the Saw franchise are bound to have your heart pumping from pure excitement.

You wouldn’t want to SPRING into these 4 horror movie icons

Posted on

What is it that’s so absolutely chilling and alarming about the dark facade behind our favorite horror movie icons? Is it their damaging upbringing that makes us feel a connection to them? Is it the menacing terror that’s bestowed upon their victims that hooks us? Or is it this shrill element of fear that gets our hearts pumping? Regardless of how we choose to analyze the horror genre, horror movies and their dreadful villains are incredibly terrifying and lovable for so many reasons and best of all, they come in different ghoulish forms — disturbed people, demonic entities, grueling monsters or something utterly unexplainable. Needless to say, these iconic killers, despite their eerie-sistable performances in horror movies, are not the dark souls that you would want to be bumping into while out on the streets. Since the days of darkness are dwindling leading up to the Spring equinox (March 21), let’s take the last few precious days of darkness that we have left to pay our respects to the darkest horror movie icons in the business.

Michael Myers, Halloween  

No one quite knows what makes this psychopathic killer tick, but with a hit list that’s surely miles long, we simply wouldn’t feel comfortable asking him. Horror fans know Michael Myers as one of the most cold-blooded, faceless, motivation-less killers in the genre, so they probably wouldn’t want to run him unexpectedly. After all, he is the essence of pure evil and once he becomes fixated on a victim, he will stop at nothing until they’re in his clutches.

Pinhead, Hellraiser

Now, a run-in with this ruthless villain would result in the bloodthirsty harvest of your soul, so it would probably be best to avoid the leader of the Cenobites. Though Pinhead appears to be a quiet 80s horror movie villain, don’t let his presence fool you, this demonic entity is swift, ruthless and has several supernatural abilities. Needless to say, if you manage to spring yourself from the clutches of Pinhead, it’ll be short-lived escape before his unearthly attack methods will have you hanging by a hook and chains prior to mutilation.

Jason Voorhees, Friday the 13th

If you were to combine the emotionless evil of Michael Myers with the cutthroat, superhuman strength of Pinhead, you would get the machete-wielding killer Jason Voorhees. Needless to say, have you ever noticed the compassion that envelops Jason’s character? While he has no problem slaying adults or teenagers who he comes into contact with at Crystal Lake, Voorhees is never seen carving an animal or a child. Perhaps this evil villain is only concerned with teaching a lesson to those who enjoy breaking the rules. So, you better hope that he doesn’t discover your deepest, darkest secrets if you cross each other’s path one day.

Xenomorphs, Alien

Probably not one of the horror movie icons that you were expecting, but a shout out to the Xenomorphs, better known as the aliens from the Alien franchise, for their ferocious, otherworldly nature that’s so unrelenting when they come across any human form. How do they torture their victims? Well, they attach themselves to their victim’s face, embed an egg into the person’s stomach and once the supernatural life form is finished growing, it bursts out of the chest of the casualty while they’re still breathing. Yeah, there’s no witchcraft that’s going to get you out of their malevolent encounter!

Out of all the horror movies out there, which bloodthirsty villain are you most afraid of? Tell us in the comments section below.

Do you know the legend of Dracula?

Posted on

If you’re a fan of Gothic horror novels than you have probably read Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) from cover to cover. There’s no denying that the bloodsucking protagonist, Count Dracula, has formulated the conventional appearance, motivations and backstory of many typical, modern-day vampires — feeds on blood, immortality, heightened senses, ability to morph and is weakened by sunlight — but it’s also believed that the inspiration for these fictional beings has derived from a part of ancient Romanian history. So, horror fans rejoice! It’s time that you learned about the legend of Dracula.

Who was Vlad the Impaler?

This medieval ruler (Vlad III) was born around the year 1428 in Wallachia — the geographical region of modern-day Romania. He was the second son of Vlad Dracul (meaning dragon) and was a gruesome warrior that had a conflict with Transylvanian Saxons — another group of people that called Romania home. When Vlad III plundered the Saxons villages, he was known for taking prisoners captive and bringing them back to Wallachia to be impaled. This was the inspiration behind his historical surname, Vlad the Impaler.

How did he inspire Dracula?

He had a reputation for cruelty, carried out mass murders and was considered to be a bloodthirsty madman that had many ancient stories and poems written about his injustices — some even spoke about him drinking the blood of his enemies, which was the perfect characteristic to create a vampire story.
Stoker’s title, Dracula, literally translates from Gaelic (Celtic language of Scotland) into the phrase bad blood and also translates from Roman into the son of Dracul, which is why Vlad III was often referred to as, Dracula.

Was there other folklore to pull from?

There an aura of mystery that surrounds the region of Transylvania. Some locals even believe that it lies on one of Earth’s most powerful magnetic fields. Vampires are believed to hang around the crossroads near Bran Castle, a fortress that sits at the end of winding roads, through a dense, thick forest and over atop a mountain pass.

What type of horror fan are you?

Posted on

If you’re a true horror fan then you probably crave a myriad of classic, cult and thriller films in order to satisfy your devilish desires. Maybe you love the horror movie genre because you’re obsessed with otherworldly folklore or perhaps the psychological terrors of a potential apocalypse trigger an intense, instinctive response that cranks your creep-tastic wheel. Although you’re a horror fan through and through, even the most dead-icated worshiper can be convinced to make a deal with the devil. So, what we’re really asking is do you know what kind of horror fan you are?

Possession

If you find yourself fiercely drawn into plot sequences that involved demons, ghosts, scary, haunted motels and animate objects that have a mind of their own than you’re the type of horror fan who relishes in films about bloodcurdling possession. It could be the unpredictability of the genre, the strange, unexplainable outcomes or the ambiguous characters, but this horror sub-genre has a supernatural power to invade you and take control. That being said, The Exorcist and The Blair Witch Project are the perfect films to question your faith and beliefs.

Psychological Thrillers

This particular horror sub-genre revolves about the practicalities of characters who are unstable or delusional. So, essentially people who are pushed to their limits. Many people are drawn to this particular niche in horror because of the mystery, drama and twisting perspectives…not to mention the paranoia of potential for these stories to be based on true events. Thrillers deliberately use tricks to create tension within the audience which maximizes their anxious suspense. That being said, Silence of the Lambs and Psycho are the perfect films to satisfy your horror cravings.

Hauntings

While possession movies may spark your interest, you’re fonder of films that dabble in the supernatural. Whether it’s a haunted house, bringing the dead back to life or zombie-fied motion pictures, you tend to steer in the direction of the distorted, but familiar, reality films that revolve about the intrusion of evil or haunting presences. That being said, The Shining and The Grudge have the ability to offer you the right kind of cinematic terror.

Found Footage Horror

If you’re the type of horror fan that relishes in the idea of watching an entire movie from the perspective of a camera recording, then you’re a lover of found footage horror. By far one of the toughest sub-genres to keep the audience involved, these movies often offer the extra thrill of spooky encounters caught on film. Not to mention the potential that’s left behind for the characters who find the footage later. That being said, Paranormal Activity and Unfriended are a couple frightening found footage films that might tickle your fancy.

Slashers

This is probably one of the most actively followed horror sub-genres and usually involves some sort of psychopath stalking and murdering a group of people. If you’re obsessed with blood and gore, as well as unprovoked killing using bladed tools and weaponry, then slasher films are probably the right horror movies to rack up your body count…I mean movie count. That being said, Friday the 13th and Halloween would be the right franchises to follow if you’re insanely obsessed with graphic murders.

Cemetery culture: Mausoleums, crypts, tombs and burials

Posted on

Are there any horror lovers out there who possess a grave interest? And yes, we really are talking about an interest in mausoleums, crypts, tombs and burials. Perhaps it’s only in your devilish nature to wonder how mankind has chosen to enter the afterlife. While this realm of the dead may have been decided due to religious upbringing or the deceased may have just lived under a cloud of superstition, but regardless of how or why they were laid to rest, your restless soul can’t help but wonder the history of cemetery culture. Blame it on the horror movies, don’t you think an eerie wander between tombstones is just as immortal, tranquil and intriguing as visiting your everyday museum?

What’s the difference between a mausoleum, crypt and a tomb?

While many of your favorite horror movies probably contain a scene with an unearthly mention or a shocking visualization of a mausoleum, crypt or tomb, strangely enough, you’re probably too petrified by the gruesome, moonlit sequence to notice where or what the corpse is reanimating in. So, let’s break down the grave distinction between these three types of burial plots.

A mausoleum is an aboveground structure that was built to hold the remains of a deceased person and sometimes their entire family. This burial formation supposedly dates back to Queen Artemisia II of Caria — a Greek naval commander from 353 BC — who had a special structure constructed to house the remains of her husband/brother, King Mausolus, who inspired the origin of the name mausoleum.

A crypt is a burial spot that has been built to hold a casket in a concrete or stone chamber. Often times they are placed beneath the floors or within the walls of a church, chapel or cathedral, but crypts can also be housed within a mausoleum. This burial formation dates back as early as 600 A.D. — one of the most famous ones being the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

A tomb is a container that holds the remains of the deceased. There is no particular size to the enclosed compartment and it is usually dependent on the burial method of choice — a casket, an urn or a burial vault within a crypt or mausoleum. A tomb can be simple or elaborate.

Burial tourist attractions

While you might not be the type of tourist to explore the notions of the afterlife intentionally, there are many famous historical monuments around the world that are actually burials. After all, mausoleums were built to be impressive structures — classical, gothic, Egyptian or modern style.

  • The tomb of Cyrus: This important monument houses Cyrus, ruler of 6th century Persia, in Pasargadae, Iran.
  • Lenin Mausoleum: This burial plot in Moscow, Russia houses Vladimir Lenin, the founder of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks).
  • Taj Mahal: Located in Agra, India, the Taj Mahal was built to honor the favorite wife of emperor Shah Jahan.
  • Terracotta Army: Housed in Xian, China, this mausoleum houses the first Emperor of the Qin Dynasty. His tomb, though unfound, contains 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots and 520 horses.

Are you compelled to know everything about the Exorcist franchise?

Posted on

There’s something incredibly scary about the in-depth sense of realism that is embodied within exorcism films — levitation, speaking in tongues and superhuman strength — after all, the Roman Catholic Church is still performing exorcisms. Maybe it’s because the fundamental portrayal of demonic possession has the potential power to make non-believers question their non-conformity and even give individuals with a more religious upbringing a hair-raising dose of authenticity. Regardless of how you look at it, the fact is that demonic possession isn’t the most impossible, far-fetched concept, which is probably one of the many reasons that have contributed to the high-grossing success of the Exorcist franchise.

The Exorcist franchise (1973-2005), consisting of two sequels and two prequels, has grossed nearly $500 million worldwide to date and is considered to be the scariest possession-based film of all time. It has paved way for many other eerie films to join this sub-genre and dictate the casting of evil spirits, demons from hell and ancient religious beliefs. Although this incredible horror movie still has the power to bring forth a few spine-chills — even with its 70s special effects — there are quite a few frightful facts that many fans still do not know about the Exorcist franchise.

The original film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards

While you probably already know that The Exorcist (1973) was an incredibly popular — there were numerous reports of widespread hysteria, people fainting and even needing to be institutionalized — you most likely didn’t know that the blockbuster film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards (Won for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound) as well as four Golden Globes (Won for Best Director, Best Film, Best Sound and Linda Blair won Best Supporting Actress). The truth is that this 1973 movie is still considered to be one of the most profitable horror movies that were ever made.

It was loosely based on a true story

This is actually a common theme for many horror movies, as screenwriters often find themselves faced with inspiration after watching a shocking news story. William Peter Blatty, the producer of the original film and writer of a novel of the same name, admitted that his inspiration came from a true story of a months-long exorcism of a 14-year-old boy from Missouri in 1949. Many of the detailed parts of the ritual — including the prayers spoken, the use of holy water and the satanic seizures — that were reported were rewritten and used as highlighted material for both the book and the film. Although, the case was re-examined many years later and it was presumed that the boy likely suffered from a mental health issue such as schizophrenia or Tourette’s syndrome.

Regan MacNeil was possessed by a mythological demon

Although it was never mentioned in the film, Blatty told fans that the demon that possessed the 12-year-old protagonist was named Pazuzu. While he could have simply invented a new evil spirit with no connection to human history, he chose to conduct research about ancient lore and connect Pazuzu to his possession story — this demonic entity is known as the king of demons in Assyrian and Babylonian mythology.

Check out these 4 wild details about the Scream franchise

Posted on

Since most devilishly devoted fans of horror films possess strong, fearless stomachs, binge-watching a few grisly slasher movies, that emerged to life during the 90s, is a challenge that’s easily accepted. The contents of the decade embellish everything from bloodcurdling gore, gruesome visual effects and some frightfully realistic stabbings and sudden impalements. Although not as hyped about as the initial 80s horror boom, the 90s has paved way for some truly horror-ific creations to the dreadful flick category. That being said, there’s no denying that the Scream franchise took horror in a whole new direction when everyone started asking the question, “what’s your favorite scary movie?” A funny and clever, yet dangerously terrifying franchise that played on our undying fears of being helpless and alone. This franchise not only re-invented the wheel, but it also revitalized horror with something fresh and modern, only managing to do it in a way that had the audience laughing and covering their eyes at the same time. Now, we already know that you love the Scream franchise, but how well do you really know it?

Where did the idea for the iconic mask come from?

Surprisingly enough, the classic Ghostface mask wasn’t actually created by the costume department. In fact, when the producers were out looking for filming locations, they came across it in a random person’s attic. The mask reminded them of a famous painting by Edvard Munch entitled, “Scream”.

It was based on true events

Like many horror films before its time, the Scream franchise was loosely based on true events. Screenwriter, Kevin Williamson, followed the media coverage of the Gainesville Ripper case, found the story to be a little creepy and reached out to a friend over the phone. After their discussion about the case, they started discussing elements of their favorite scary movies and BAM, the idea for the franchise emerged.

A quick and painful death

While most horror movies show the protagonist slowly slipping into madness over the course of a few days, the Scream franchise is notoriously known for offing their characters within a blink of an eye. Needless to say, these punchy movies are loaded with lots of action, but answering a simple text message may leave you lost and confused as to which character was brutally slashed.

The Scream franchise and Halloween franchise possess a connection

Aside from the obvious part — where both villains have a reason for going after the protagonists in the films — both Halloween and the original Scream movie share a couple connections. For starters, during the Scream party sequence, the teens are drinking, dancing and indulging in a horror movie binge. One of those movies is actually Halloween. The best part is in one of the Halloween sequels — Halloween H20 — the favor is returned when a foursome of characters is sitting around watching Scream 2 during the plot’s downtime.

Pet Sematary

As another Stephen King novel to come alive on the big screen next year, this modern-day reboot may even give the original a run for its money. Taking a more supernatural approach to the haunted woods, rather than a simple old wives tale about a powerful burial ground, this new horror film carefully follows the plot of its original counterpart aside from a few spook-tacular added touches. It looks absolutely terrifying!

Child’s Play

Another reboot that comes to life in 2019 will take you back to the good ol’ days of 1980s seat-clenching thrillers.

Four of the worst horror movie sequels of all time

Posted on

Whether you’re a horror film lover who indulges in the bloodcurdling nature of horror movies year-round or you simply binge-watch to your heart’s content for the entire month of October, there’s no doubt that everyone has their opinions when it comes to the most gruesomely awesome tales and the ones that are just plain boo. That being said, regardless of whether you prefer the slow moving torment of psychotic killers like Michael Myers rather than the demonic possession of dolls such as Chucky, there’s no denying that these pop-culture slasher films have earned a rightful place in our horror loving hearts, but how sequel movies that are so incredibly terrible that they their nonsensical plotlines make you stir in your grave…or on your couch.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

There’s no arguing the spine-chilling originality behind the notorious Leatherface and his home of relative minions, but why did producers have to ruin the story of our favorite chainsaw wielding maniac by redefining his character in an otherwise terrible prequel? Let’s be real here…real horror fans don’t care about his sob story as to why he peels back the skin of his victims and turns them into masks. They only care about his daunting persistence when it comes to catching his prey. So, if you’ve seen this film, we feel bad for you, and if you haven’t please don’t even bother. Please just stick to the cult classic from the early 70s. After all, the masks are absolutely brilliant in their ingenuity.

The Fly 2

When it comes to unsuccessful sequels The Fly 2, in our opinion, is unable to stand tall next to its prior memorable masterpiece. The whole mutant father passes his genetic to mutant son has been so abused by horror movies that it lacked any sense of imagination and creativeness.

Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows

Maybe it was just the positively nauseating camerawork or potentially the boring scripted documentary style, but this sequel film definitely didn’t do its predecessor any justice. It lacked the edgy appeal of the original film, which predates this one by only a year. Maybe the producers should have given it a bit more time in between or maybe the pointless storyline could have used a few more rewrites? Regardless of how you feel about the second film in this horror franchise, we can probably both agree that when it’s compared to other horror movies, it lacks any true depth or supernatural appeal beyond a sense of mass hysteria.

The Exorcist II

There has to be a correlation between poor horror movies and badly written sequels. While the original Exorcist movie did incredibly well at the box office, notably becoming one of the most popular supernatural horror films of all time, it also set the groundwork for future possession-type films. However, the second movie didn’t really serve a purpose in aiding the originals already high horror status. In fact, as one of the otherworldly five film franchise, it investigated the death of the priest who was killed during the original exorcist. Luckily, horror movie lovers have continued to re-watch the first film without tarnish their connection to its legacy through the poorly executed sequels.

Do you know of any other sequels to horror movies that simply don’t make the cut? Tell us in the comments section below.
