A Dark and Scary Place
Are you developing goose bumps?
Are the hairs rising on the back of your neck?
Is someone walking over your grave?
For more than a hundred years horror films have thrilled, chilled, terrified, and even disgusted cinema and home viewers alike.
This is a collection of around 200 reviews written for popular internet websites sci-fi-online and reviewgraveyard.com. Many of the releases are sets or collections incorporating several movies, so you get even more reviews for your money!
There are classics and turkeys on parade here, covering a multitude of sub-genres, including: Slasher, Occult, Ghosts and the Supernatural, Monsters, Psychological, Mechanical and Technological, Vampires and Zombies, and more besides.
Film reviews featured include: The Exorcist, The Omen, Friday 13th, 28 Days Later, The Ring, Basket Case, The Black Cat, The Cavern, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Evil Dead, Village of the Damned, Hostel, Masque of the Red Death, The Grudge, John Carpenter's The Fog, It's Alive, The Devil Rides Out, The Thing From Another World, Horror of Dracula, Quatermass and the Pit, The Abominable Dr Phibes, The Eye, The Legend of Hell House, and many, many more.
With acting legends such as Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi - performing to a backdrop of scripts adapted from such master storytellers as Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Graham Masterton and Stephen King - there is plenty here for the discerning horror buffs to get their vampire teeth into.
However, this is just as much about the surprising little gems and the awful attempts which cause you to laugh or even cringe. So, whatever your own opinion of these films, I very much hope you enjoy reading the reviews and are inspired enough to seek some of these out (no, you can't borrow my copies!).
Oh, the horror of it all!
