Hair-Raising Reservations: The Top 5 Hotels of Horror

Hotels, motels and Holiday Inns, these are all locations that typically should be synonymous with luxury, comfort and untroubled accommodation.

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).

The Gloaming is the debut short horror film by award-winning, IFTA-nominated filmmakers Souljacker. It was written and directed by Sean Smith and is an atmospheric piece that owes as much to the eerie bogland captured by cinematographer Brian O'Brien (Souljacker) as it does to the chilling story of a father and son stalked by an ancient evil. And you can watch it below.

The Top 5 Monster Games You Must Play

RAMPAGE (1986)
Long before home video gaming was commonplace players were forced to hide away down at their local arcade feeding machines quarters all afternoon. One such monster-based offering from Bally Midway that arrived in arcades in 1986 as well as on some of the earlier consoles available on the market was ‘Rampage’. Players could pick from a giant gorilla, lizard or werewolf in order to terrorise cities and the general population whilst trying to cause as much destruction as possible and avoiding military forces.
