Psychological horrors are all well and good (and equally as effective in many respects), but sometimes we need some a good, old fashioned, relentless horrorshow to truly keep us lying awake at night unable to sleep. Of course, few movies get it right, with many going so over the top that they become laughable instead of horrifying.
Narrowing down the greatest and goriest horror movies to just ten is no easy feat, so below you’ll find simply a selection of some of our favourites. All of them handle fear in extremely different ways, some to enhance the story and others to simply shock the audience to a point where they’re left truly horrified.
Let’s fire up that chainsaw and head into it.
10. The Evil Dead
This is a franchise so bloody that it’s near impossible to single out just one of the movie’s as the goriest. »

Mondo has released some awesome poster art for Sam Raimi's Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. They were created by artists Randy Ortiz, Richey Beckett, and Tom Whalen. I love each of these poster designs, and they are a must-own for any fan of the cult classic horror films.
All posters will be available for purchase online sometime today. Follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement.

During Comic-Con, the collectible arthouse Mondo unveiled some awesome posters for Guardians of the Galaxy, not to mention announcing their foray into collectible toys with figures for The Iron Giant and more. Now Mondo is back to their regularly scheduled programming (via Badass Digest) with great artwork for two of the most revered cult classic horror films. Evil Dead II is given a stylish poster by Randy Ortiz while Army of Darkness is given two different prints by Tom Whalen and Richey Beckett. Technically there's six posters since each has a variant to go along with it, but if you like Mondo, you know the drill. Randy Ortiz's poster for Evil Dead II (variant on the right): Richey Beckett's poster for Army of Darkness (variant on the right): Tom Whalen's poster for Army of Darkness (variant on the right): My favorite is probably Tom Whalen's, »

One of the complaints many people have about the pop culture poster scene is that the same handful of movies keep getting posters. It’s a valid argument. Massively popular films like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, The Big Lebowski and Kill Bill do have infinitely more posters than their smaller counterparts. The reasons, though, […]

Mondo is revisiting Sam Raimi's sequels Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. If you recall, the company recited incantations from the Necronomicon in 2013 and brought forth two great prints. This time, artists Randy Ortiz, Richey Beckett and Tom Whalen are involved and, come tomorrow, Mondo will be dropping the prints you see here onto the public. As usual, you'll need to follow Mondo's Twitter page to find out when this will go up for sale (usually in the a.m.). There will be variants as well. Check 'em out!

Fede Alvarez’s grisly Evil Dead remake had us equal parts grossed out and engrossed, but Sam Raimi’s ever-shifting plans for the future of the horror franchise, which will now include a TV series, might mean that we’ll never see a direct follow-up to that film.
To be clear, that would be a real shame. Evil Dead, among its other strengths, worked to establish Jane Levy’s Mia as the new series’ protagonist – and the dramatic chops the Suburgatory alum showcased in the movie had me completely behind that, at least until Bruce Campbell’s Ash came into contact with her. But recent comments from Levy to Aith suggest Mia may end up being a one-and-done:
“I don’t think they’re gonna make it. I mean, they’re always coming up with a new thing- now I hear they’re making a TV show. I was like, »

All right you primitive screwheads, listen up. Sam Raimi ("Oz the Great and Powerful"), the father of the Evil Dead franchise surprised everyone at San Diego Comic-Con when he announced that a new Evil Dead television series was in development. The only concrete information that he provided was that he was currently in the process of writing it with Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert and his brother Ivan Raimi. Once news hit the web everyone wanted to know if Bruce Campbell would reprise his role as 'Ash,' and according to this tweet from the actor, he will! “@DeaditeBill: Only if @GroovyBruce is the Star of this new tv series will I accept. That's the plan. pic.twitter.com/m7EkBFpl1b — Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) July 27, 2014 Campbell previously starred in the original Evil Dead, the sequels Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. He made a "groovy" cameo in the Evil Dead reboot, »
Sam Raimi announced at San Diego Comic-Con that he is writing, along with his brother Ivan, a television show based on the “Evil Dead” series of movies. Even better, it purportedly involves Bruce Campbell, though it's unclear if he'll appear on-screen or behind-the-scenes. Also read: ‘Spider-Man’ Director Sam Raimi to Produce ‘The Last of Us’ Movie for Screen Gems The original film trilogy (“The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead II,” and “Army of Darkness”) ran from 1981 to 1992 and introduced the world to Campbell as Ash Williams. Cambell, most recently seen on “Burn Notice,” may be too old to play Ash these. »

Doris the Deadite greets us atop the stairs leading to Planet Hollywood’s V3 Theater in Las Vegas. Wearing a blood-splotched white dress with a matching white hat nestled on her curly blonde hair, Doris smiles through the peeling gray skin of her face. Teeth bared, eyes darting from sunken sockets, Doris cackles and beckons us closer for a photo. Welcome to the immersive atmosphere of Evil Dead The Musical Ultimate 4D Experience.
A tasty slice of horror heaven from director/producer Sirc Michaels that’s based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy, as well as the book and lyrics of George Reinblatt, this Vegas production is packed with nods to its beloved source material, but also boasts buckets of blood-drenched originality.
After our photo is snapped with Doris, we hang out in the bar area for a bit before another Deadite calls us into the theater. As we walk down a short hallway, »

Here's a crazy radical piece of poster art for Sam Raimi's classic horror film Evil Dead II. It was created by Jeremy Wheeler and comes in a regular metallic edition of 50 and a bloody variant edition of 25, which is the one I prefer. I'm all about the blood. The posters are available for sale today from Fright Fest Originals. If you want to purchase one, click here.

The good folks behind some of the coolest yet most painfully priced collectibles in the world, Sideshow Collectibles, have announced that they have scored the license for Evil Dead II and will be releasing more Friday the 13th goodies.
There was no press release and no additional information available at press time. All we have to go on are the following two images.
Now let us be clear; even though Comic-Con isn't mentioned anywhere on the images, given the timing of the announcement and the time of year, we'd be shocked if the company didn't have prototypes ready for San Diego's big dance.
Check out the images below, and look for more soon!

Ravenous is a film that is deceitful above all things. Almost from the outset, and certainly from the trailers, it portrays itself as a horror comedy in the vein of perhaps Evil Dead II or Cabin Fever. However, as the film comes together, the viewer quickly begins to see it for the maddening Frankenstein’s monster it truly is.
Ravenous tells the story of two outcasted men. The first is a disgraced former soldier, Calhoun, struggling with his “heroic” past, while the second, Ives, is the sole survivor of a wilderness trek. Both mens journeys ended bad and bloody, and because of this, there is a kinship among them. They seem to know and understand one another.
Oh, and one other thing, they’re both cannibals.
And so, in the quiet California snow of the 1800s, we find these two »

I've recently been revisiting a lot of my favorite action movies that I watched as a teenager in the '90s. They seriously just don't make action films like that anymore. Filmmakers were still using lots of real explosives and blood squibs in these movies. Most of the films these days create those things digitally. Action films in the '90s were a sweet spot between the '80s and the '00s where the way action movies were being made really started to change with the advancement of technology. On top of that, the stories that they told were fun and completely over-the-top.
So here's a top ten list of my favorite action films from the '90s. Obviously these movies are all insanely action-packed. This is an action movie list, after all, so I'll talk about some of the other reasons I enjoyed these films so much.

To survive in the world of The Walking Dead, you have to be smart, skilled, and swift. And as Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop app shows, it doesn’t hurt to have a sweet and deadly set of wheels to drive around and through herds of walkers. Derek Arzoo, the Associate Creative Director for Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop, launched a website that features intriguing looks at what went into making the popular app and its related materials.
For those who aren’t familiar with it, Hyundai’s The Walking Dead Chop Shop is a free app in which users build the ultimate survival machine out of three Hyundai vehicles and over 900 parts. At your disposal are machine guns, blades, barbed wire, and much more: think the kinds of vehicles that prowled the landscapes of The Road Warrior and Doomsday. The challenge is to create a »

A pair of one-sheets to share with you before we close out the week. The first is a piece of art from the famous poster artist Graham Humphreys (who has done Evil Dead II for the UK and various other titles). He applied his talents to Soulmate, a gothic thriller that is on the way from director Axelle Carolyn. Anna Walton (Hellboy II) stars as a young woman who, following a suicide attempt, retreats to a cottage haunted by its previous owner.

On tap right now is some beautiful artwork for Dread Central alum and fave Axelle Carolyn's latest film, Soulmate. This artwork comes courtesy of the uber-talented Graham Humphreys (who made the well-known UK posters for Nightmare on Elm Street and Evil Dead II). Dig it!
The supernatural thriller stars Anna Walton (Hellboy 2), Tom Wisdom (300), Nick Brimble (A Knight’s Tale), and Emma Cleasby (Dog Soldiers) and marks the feature debut of director Axelle Carolyn, who has acted in Neil Marshall’s Centurion and Doomsday. Carolyn also penned the script.
Soulmate follows a young woman who retreats to a remote cottage after a failed suicide attempt. She soon discovers the cottage is haunted by its previous owner but decides to remain, hoping to find comfort in the ghost.

As we prepare for Liam Neeson's latest action film Non-Stop, a movie in which an entire plane full of people learn it's not a good idea to mess with Liam Neeson, it seems like an opportune time to inventory the many reasons why this is a guy you're better off leaving alone. Just in case you were thinking about maybe lifting his wallet or something. Even His Superhero Is Lethal After Evil Dead II and before Spider-Man, Sam Raimi made an R-rated superhero movie called Darkman. For those who have yet to see it, Darkman is not a nice superhero. He has severe rage issues and unlike wimps like Batman, does not hesitate to kill his enemies. A lot. To help make sure everyone knows this character's severity, Sam Raimi wisely cast Liam Neeson in the role. Because...

Darkman is a movie I have a lot of affection for, as it was one of the first R-rated movies I snuck into with friends back in junior high. Undoubtedly one of Sam Raimi’s most ambitious projects, Darkman goes for gusto with its wacky sense of humor firmly intact.
While its imperfections are numerous, there’s a lot I will always admire about Darkman. It still remains one of Sam Raimi’s most ambitious projects to date and it’s hard to do anything but admire the kind of lofty ambitions Raimi tosses at the screen with his self-created superhero crime thriller/dark comedy mash-up.
In Darkman, Liam Neeson plays lovesick scientist Peyton Westlake, who gets caught in the middle of a dangerous political cover-up when his well-meaning girlfriend Julie (Frances McDormand) leaves an incriminating document at his lab connecting a corrupt developer to maniacal mob boss Robert Durant (Larry Drake, »
