Die Laughing: 50+ of the Most Hilarious Horror Movies

28 October 2011 6:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It's that time of year again - pumpkins line porches, bags of candy fill the drugstore shelves, and children everywhere are encouraged by their parents to ring the bells of strangers' houses and demand handouts.

Halloween season also is the one time of year where it's pretty much impossible to avoid horror movies. If you're a horror fan like I am, there's really no change in your viewing habits because you were probably going to be watching Suspiria and The Abominable Dr. Phibes tonight anyway. But if you're only a seasonal horror fan, it can be a bit daunting to navigate the sea of bloody entertainments that flood the airwaves this time of year.

To that end, we've put together a list of over 50 horror movies that are as funny as they are scary (whether intentionally or by accident). Hopefully with the list below as a reference, even the most »

Blu-ray Review: A Nightmare On Elm Street 1-7 Collection

17 October 2011 7:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Of all the big long-running horror franchises, Nightmare On Elm Street is perhaps the most interesting. Created in 1984 by Wes Craven, the original film and its iconic razor gloved child murderer Freddy Krueger went on to become New Line Cinema‘s biggest cash cow – quickly turning into an unstoppably popular series of films that ran throughout the ‘80s and into the early ‘90s.

While fellow franchises like Halloween and Friday The 13th revelled in repetitive stalk and slash scenarios, the Elm Street films- while just as inconsistent in quality – made frequent attempts to keep things inventive and unique. Freddy himself also changed over the course of the seven films, transforming into an ‘80s icon, known more for his wicked sense of humour than the fact that he‘s a child killer.

Now fans can now enjoy the original seven films of the franchise, in high-definition for »

15 Killer Freddy Krueger "A Nightmare On Elm Street" Quotes!

16 October 2011 2:20 PM, PDT | Horrorbid | See recent Horrorbid news »

Once upon a time Mr. Fred Krueger was a vile son-of-a-bitch with a sense of humor about as thick as fishing line. Of course, that all changed when New Line released A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge. Kruegers character transitioned from a hellish being with menace in his mouth to standup comedian in training, in the short span of one single year. While I prefer my nightmares on the dark side, Ive never had a legitimate proble… »

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Robert Englund

16 September 2011 1:31 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

"You've got the body…I've got the brains." That was the scene that did it for me. We've all got our favorite Freddy Krueger moment ... Nancy in the bathtub, Johnny Depp getting sucked into the bed, the cockroach transformation scene or even "Welcome to prime time, bitch!". But the one that stuck with me was Krueger peeling back the top of his head, revealing a pulsing brain, while reciting that line to a screaming Jesse in A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge.

Thinking back, I can remember sitting in the Gash household with my younger brother (we'll call him Patient Zero), working a remote control that had three buttons and was wired to the Vcr, replaying that scene until the tracking button could no longer control the interference. It was classic.

But whatever your favorite Freddy moment, we have one man to thank for them all. Robert Englund »

Weekend Horror Trivia

4 September 2011 1:06 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Reader and contributor Gemma St. Clair returns this weekend with a new list of horror trivia:

1. Graveyard Shift: The mill in the film is called “Bachman Mills”. This is a reference to Richard Bachman, a pseudonym used by Stephen King.

2. A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2Robert Englund makes a appearance without his Freddy make-up. Look for the bus driver at the beginning of the film.

3. Frankenstein (1931): Bela Lugosi was offered the part of the monster, but turned it down because it was not a speaking role and his idea for the monster design was rejected.

4. Saw 2: The hooded figure who is putting a key in the victim’s eye during the beginning of the film is played by director Darren Lynn Bousman.

5. Doom: Dr. Carmack is named after John Carmack, one of the creators of the Doom video game series.

6. The Ninth Gate: »

Fright Night Retrospective Part Two: How the 80s Damn Near Killed Sequels, Fright Night 2 Underwhelms Everyone and How The Menendez Brothers Destroyed Fright Night 3

23 August 2011 12:28 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

At the time Columbia Pictures was set to release writer/director Tom Holland's Fright Night in theaters on August 2nd, 1985, the horror world was much bleaker than the story created by Holland in the flick, which gave genre fans a change of pace from the endless cavalcade of slasher flicks that preceded its release in the late summer of 1985.

After some heavyweight movies like Cat's Eye, Friday the 13th: A New Beginning and A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge unleashed some very dark and straight-laced genre fare on audiences in theaters everywhere that year, Fright Night managed to make a huge impression in the film world: Not only did Holland's refreshing script reinvigorate the horror world with a classic storytelling approach that hearkened to the Universal Monsters age of cinema, but it also reintroduced the idea of incorporating some heart and respect toward the genre as a whole, »

Fright Night Retrospective Part One: Tom Holland Reflects on the Early Stages of Creating the Seminal Monster Movie

22 August 2011 5:53 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Welcome to Fright Night! Before making his directorial debut in 1985 with the original Fright Night, Tom Holland was just getting started establishing himself as one of the Masters of Horror. Prior to creating his modern twist on Rear Window with vampires, Holland was a genre writer coming off of a hot streak of well-performing scripts including The Beast Within, Class of 1984, Psycho II and Cloak & Dagger.

When Holland created the story of Fright Night, he knew he needed to be at the helm of the project since the film was essentially his love letter to the genre he's always loved. Once Fright Night hit theaters on August 2, 1985, Holland was well on his way to be one of the most respected horror filmmakers of his time.

Despite a somewhat limited release on only 1,545 screens nationwide, Fright Night managed to be the sleeper genre hit of the year, second only to »

Help Freddy Get Revenge with Evil New Neca Figure

30 April 2011 12:37 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge gets a lot of unwarranted shit from fans. Yes, it's riddled with homoerotic overtones, but who gives a damn? Bottom line - it marked the second and only other time in the series (other than the original) that Freddy was at his most evil, instead of wisecracking his way through the proceedings.

And his look was equally as vicious. He was pissed off. He was uglier than usual. His lust for revenge knew no bounds, and it read that way on his face and in his eyes. Below you'll see another entry in Neca's stellar new Nightmare on Elm Street line. This one based on Part 2. He comes with a removable hat and interchangeable heads (regular and screaming face).

One look and you'll be in love! Want. Now.
