Comfort Horror

I haven’t done this in a while, let me brush the dust off!I came up with this idea on the fly yesterday (this is being written 5/9/22) after essentially a month of no updating, writing (except poetry), reading comics, working on myself and taking a very interesting and long break but I think this is … Continue reading Comfort Horror

Favorites: Found Footage

This subgenre is hit or miss, in my opinion. You can have underrated ones, popular examples or ones that miss the mark and it can be because of something minor. I think what makes these films in general scary is that it is possible, more possible than anything else. You can come across old tapes … Continue reading Favorites: Found Footage

Horror Deep Dives

I was listening to a podcast and they were discussing horror movies (it is a horror podcast, if I can remember the name) and they were mentioning the popularity of horror versus the under the radar, you need to be a bit of a cinephile kind of horror movies that the general public doesn’t know … Continue reading Horror Deep Dives

School is Hell: Horror in the Formative Years

I’m glad I’m not in school anymore. Just school in general and definitely during a pandemic. I don’t know how anyone is surviving in schools during these times, student or teacher or employee. It’s a lot, and it’s going to change those formative years for students as young as they are. And that got me … Continue reading School is Hell: Horror in the Formative Years

Comedic Horror

I’m not the biggest fan of this subgenre of horror. I don’t mind them but I wouldn’t immediately rush to these types of films. I love supernatural, thriller, and even slasher horror but I wouldn’t go to comedy. But when you do it well, you do it very well and it has an impact. So … Continue reading Comedic Horror

Dysfunctional Family Horror

I’m shocked I hadn’t thought about this sooner. I guess I can give a writing generator prompt credit for bringing up a similar topic on what to write about or coming up with something fresher and left field. And boy this is left field. Families in film in general can shape the overall experience of … Continue reading Dysfunctional Family Horror

Favorites: Top 10 Films With Demons

We know how much I love supernatural horror with witches, ghosts/hauntings, vampires but I haven’t talked about movies where demons are at the forefront. Comfort films maybe but I love seeing how different cultures and filmmakers go after a topic like ghosts or in this case, demons and what the beliefs are. A lot of … Continue reading Favorites: Top 10 Films With Demons

Power Wielding Horror

Horror fulfills a certain itch within me. I’ve always wanted to have powers. But I didn’t want to be a superhero (or villain) but I wanted to do cool, amazing, unique things. I thought it would make my life a bit easier if I could make things move with my mind or go invisible or … Continue reading Power Wielding Horror

Atmospheric Horror

This has been brewing in my head for quite some time. Ever since I was watching through October with the 31DayHorrorChallenge, I’ve encountered movies that did some things quite effective. And by that, I’m talking about immersing myself into that world. The pacing, the cinematography, the acting, the atmosphere… and that’s what inspired me to … Continue reading Atmospheric Horror
