Not Safe For Work: Top 13 Wtf Moments in Horror

22 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The big payoff moment. The money shot. The Omg/Wtf/Nsfw scene in horror. These are the moments that define films. The moment that either grosses and disgusts or shocks the audience in such a way that they have to come back for the sequel. Here are our Top 13 Wtf Moments in Horror.

We're going to try to keep this to relatively mainstream films. That's not to say that some lesser known indies haven't had some shocking moments, but things seem that much more disturbing when the movie in question reaches a wide audience.

Beginning with our honorable mentions, we've got to include I Spit on Your Grave, one of the most censored and banned films of all times. Camille Keaton played Jennifer Hills who was raped for the better part of the first half of the film. Plenty of Nsfw moments there. Also those infamous shit-eaters in Salo: 120 Days of Sodom were certainly shocking. »

"What Did You Watch This Weekend?" was originally published on Film School Rejects for our wonderful readers to enjoy. It is not intended to be reproduced on other websites. If you aren't reading this in your favorite RSS reader or on Film School Rejects, you're being bamboozled. We hope you'll come find us and enjoy the best articles about movies, television and culture right from the source.

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid), and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I’ve seen Peter Jackson’s fantastic splatter comedy Dead Alive many times over the years, but it’s always been on my television via VHS, DVD »

Ten of the Most Creative Horror Movie Weapons

11 March 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Tonight, March 11th, marks the premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, exclusively airing on Robert Rodriguez’ new El Rey Network. An expansion on the characters and story seen in the 1996 film, the show will center on brothers Seth and Richie Gecko, who find themselves battling off hordes of blood-sucking vampires, alongside the kidnapped Fuller family (above).

If From Dusk Till Dawn, the movie, is any indication of what we can expect from the series, we’re in store for buckets of blood and a whole lot of fun. I think it’s also safe to say that we can expect some pretty creative vampire kills, courtesy of some pretty creative weapons, which were on display throughout the film. From a holy water-spewing Super Soaker to the particularly memorable ‘codpiece revolver,’ From Dusk Till Dawn features some of the most truly creative weapons in horror movie history.

Top 10 Femme Fatales of the 1990s

5 March 2014 12:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Make no mistake about it -- the '90s are back. Myriad people are sporting flannel and backwards baseball hats, Furbys are the "new" hot toys, and even Nirvana seems to have gained popularity again recently. Since one of the most gnarly decades is rearing its grungy head again, how else should one reminisce about the good 'ol days than to list of the baddest Bettys of the 1990s? Read on, and count down the boss femme fatales of the '90s.

10. Vera Cosgrove - Dead Alive (1992)

You may think she's just another crazy old white woman, but Vera Cosgrove is much more sociopathic than the average spinster. She won't let her son go, even after she's dead and walking. When Lionel Cosgrove takes his mother to the zoo, she gets bitten by a Sumatran rat monkey, and immediately feels ill. Her health goes downhill quickly, and after much pain and swelling, »

Seven Movie Monsters So Ugly They're Cute

24 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Cinema is often paradoxical: it's full of situations where opposites attract, or things are so wrong they're right, and we often see good characters go bad. As patrons of the cinema, we are frequently attracted to these paradoxes, and this is especially the case with movie characters so hideously deformed or badly misshapen that they circle back around to being adorable.   We don’t know quite what to do with these anomalies... do we hug them, or run away screaming? With that in mind, let's count down seven of our favorite creatures in cinema (and one runner-up) that are so ugly they're cute. When you wrap up with this one, be sure to check out horror loving kids and the parents who encourage it.     Bad Milo   Sometimes one’s inner turmoil manifests itself as a living thing. And sometimes that living thing has murderous intent and lives in its host »

VidVad Scare's Whacky Horror Art is Sure to Put a Smile on Your Face

21 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

He goes by the name VidVad Scare, and he's a San Antonio-based artist. That's just about all we know about the man whose work we're here to shine the spotlight on today, but if his whacky creations are any indication, VidVad is a dude who enjoys the finer things in life; monsters, madmen, mutants and macabre madness!

All of these things are on display in Mr. Scare's unique artwork, which oftentimes mashes up fan-favorite horror characters with iconic pop culture imagery. Gizmo is riding Slimer in one piece of art while a Ghoulie and Dead Alive's baby Selwyn are doing battle in another. Other pieces include a fun and totally unexpected Curious George/Evil Dead mash-up, a fusion of Hellraiser and Q*bert and a Universal Monsters remake of Where the Wild Things Are.

Check out some of our favorites below and see more, as well as purchase prints, »
