  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Twisted Contemporary Fairy Tales

    ,,

    The line between horror and fantasy is so easily blurred that it can be hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. Even children’s fairy tales, intended to be magical instead of scary, can be chill-inducing. Think of the living puppet Pinocchio, originally from Carlo Collodi’s 1883 children’s book. Pinocchio meets with a happy ending when he is turned into a human boy at the tale’s end. But are any of us really comfortable with inanimate objects like dolls coming to life in the first place?

    ,,

    While the US may be the leading exporter of horror films, it hardly has a corner on the market.  Many other countries have thriving horror film industries. Canada, UK, Australia, Japan, and more all have a fascination for fear which plays out in their native film genres. These horror films sometimes differ greatly in source materials, often taking from local myths and legends that are regionally specific. But where these films may differ thematically, they all share a global love for the macabre.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Films Where Terror Takes Place Outdoors

    ,,

    Summer is finally here. The air is warm, the sun is bright, and it’s time to enjoy the outdoors. With this time of year comes swimming, hiking, camping, and exploring. Back are the days when it feels great to simply stroll along under the trees in your neighborhood. There’s something peaceful about being away from other people, alone or with a few friends in the calm of a park, the cover of the woods, or in the seclusion of a hiking trail.

  • Found Footage… For Real: Vintage Horror Teasers!

    ,,

    The art of the trailer has certainly been lost over the years, as the need to sell a film often leads to showing more and more crucial footage, spoiling surprises, or even worse: cutting something to look as generic as possible. Gone are the days of clever teasers; instead, we now have teasers for teasers, red-band trailers and TV spots that just show way too much. So for this week’s edition of Found Footage… For Real, we’ve dug up three vintage horror teasers to show the new generation of trailer cutters how it’s really done.
