Clover in her novel, Men, Women and Chainsaws: Gender in the Modern Horror Film circa 1992 and since then, we have used the term for the “last standing” girl (or sometimes … Continue reading Favorites: Ranking the Final Girls

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

Top 10 List of Horror Icons (new & classic)

So this is somewhat inspired by a vhs/dvd of Boogeymen but in my own opinion. If you do not know about Boogeymen, it was a compilation of “icons” of horror but it was most 90% popular and then 10% of unknowns (which is great for exposure) put together with classic scenes and some trivia about … Continue reading Top 10 List of Horror Icons (new & classic)

Children & Horror: The Loss of Innocence

There is something inherently off putting when children are the main focus in a horror film. We see children as a source of innocence, naivety, we want to protect them and shield them from all the evil in the world as much as we can. But what horror (or the other sub genres like thrillers, … Continue reading Children & Horror: The Loss of Innocence

The Beauty behind Giallo: A Visual Journey into Italian Horror

2019 is the year that I dove into the deep end of Italian horror, especially older films. I've swam in the shallow pool, only seen Suspiria, Demons and Demons 2. But nothing prepared me for what Italian or "giallo" horror is really about, the depths of how unique it is and at the opposite end … Continue reading The Beauty behind Giallo: A Visual Journey into Italian Horror

SoH Reviews: Blood Rage aka Slasher

"It’s not cranberry sauce." Hold the cranberry sauce, what this movie is, is actually kinda fun. I had a good time watching this. I was also slightly confused but that takes a backseat to the fun.
