Horror Movies that Shifted the Landscape

This was mildly inspired by a recent Kill Count from Dead Meat on the movie 28 Days Later. It was something that was mentioned about how this movie changed the “undead” or zombie genre, even though it isn’t a zombie film but the antagonists were able to RUN.

Favorites: Ranking ANOES Franchise

Overdue for a long, long time. The Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is my favorite franchise in the genre. There are only 9 films under its belt and a tv series Freddy’s Nightmares that will be excluded out of this list for the fact that it is a series. Finally, I am going to rank … Continue reading Favorites: Ranking ANOES Franchise
