THE MODERN MASTER OF HORROR: THE RISE OF JAMES WAN
 
Posted: 13 May, 2016 at 01:32 AM GMT
The Modern Master Of Horror: The Rise Of James Wan

A Malaysian-born, Australian film director, James Wan is most known for his impact on the horror genre since debuting his short film Saw in 2003. Honing his unique style from a young age, the director won Best Guerilla Film at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival for his first film Stygian, before breaking fresh ground with the gore-filled Saw. Wan then became known as the dominating force in quality horror films with the likes of critically-acclaimed and box office hits Insidious and The Conjuring – the latter of which remains the highest grossing original horror movie of all time, second only to The Exorcist.

HOW WE ARE CHANGING FROM THE TRADITIONAL HORROR MOVIE
 
Posted: 5 May, 2016 at 21:12 PM GMT
How We Are Changing from the Traditional Horror Movie

I’m sure we have all watched horror movies, whether that is hiding behind the sofa in fear as you can’t bear to watch the gruesome events in front of you, or if you’re brave enough with popcorn and managing to sit through it all without flinching. Either way, we know the usual sequence of horror movies, we have a villain, we have deaths, and we have fear in the audience. We also have a usual setting for this, at night predominantly, with a lonely victim, in a creaky old house that would spook out anyone, with music slowly beating to ramp up the tension and make you more scared than you ever thought humanly possible.

Murderers, weirdos, sinister bellhops (like the creepy costumed bloody bellhop you can now pick up at Pure Costumes), perverse managers, ghosts and general strange goings-on are the order of the day in most of our specially selected list of horror/thriller hotels and motels here.

The Top 3 Monster Slot Machines You Need to Try

Monsters! Even if they are hiding in a human form, you instantly recognize them on the screen. If not by their empty gaze, or even a criminally insane one, at least because the heroine of the flick starts screaming when they appear. Monsters have been a part of our lives since the early days of humanity - just think of the Egyptian gods with animal heads, or the various scaries of the Greek and Roman mythology. And they served as an inspiration for many novels, short stories, movies and  - why not? - slot machines over the years. And now I'll show you the three best slot machine monsters I've come across.

The Top 10 Cannibals Featured in Horror

In light of today's release of new Western horror BONE TOMAHAWK in to theatres we thought we'd take a look back at some of the more mermorable aspects of cannibalism in horror. BONE TOMAHAWK is a gritty, unpredictable, action-packed Western chronicling a terrifying rescue mission. When a group of cannibal savages kidnaps settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, Sheriff Franklin Hunt and his team set out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission – and survival itself – in serious jeopardy. The new movie from first time director S. Craig Zahler stars Kurt Russell, Matthew Fox and Richard Jenkins opens in UK theatres around the country today.

HORROR RETURNS TO SOUTHEND-ON-SEA'S HORROR ON SEA FESTIVAL
 
Posted: 19 February, 2016 at 15:50 PM GMT
Horror Returns to Southend-on-Sea's Horror on Sea Festival

The second weekend of Southend's horror festival was held at the White Bus Cinema last month and kicked off on the Saturday afternoon with "Dark Awakening" (Dean C. Jones, 2014). This American thriller features a cute young couple with their photogenic little boy who move into deserted mansion in the countryside. Their en famille attempt to live in rural seclusion is marred by the fact the entire town appears to be inhabited by sinister old people who won't stop staring at them. Their little boy starts insisting there are imaginary friends around the place and draws creepy crayon pictures of them, when not investigating the deserted basement against his parents' orders. There's an entertaining backstory of the dad's previous career as a murdering child (pushing a child on a swing then sneaking up behind them with a pitchfork to stick in their back).
