5 Notable Actors In Classic Horror Movies

5 Notable Actors In Classic Horror Movies

For me, the golden age of horror movies ran between the 1920s and the 1960s mainly in the USA and then 1960s to 1970s in the UK . The movies produced in this timeframe were classic films that stood the test of time and stand up against any of today’s contemporary offerings. Some of the finest actors in horror movies were introduced by Warner Brothers, Twentieth Century Fox and Paramount followed by the British studio, Hammer Film Productions. Here I…

5 Nostalgic Horror Computer Games of the 1990s

5 Nostalgic Horror Computer Games of the 1990s

Growing up in the 1970s and ’80s means I was fortunate enough to be present in the early days of home computers and games consoles. It was, however, the 1990s that saw me discover and explore the horror genre to the full via video games. Through video games I was able to slake my thirst for all things horror via the games being released. Games that blew me away with their cutting edge graphics, atmospheric audio and immersive story telling….

Is The Pandemic A Hoax?

Is The Pandemic A Hoax?

Is the COVID-19 pandemic a hoax? MY OPINION (from FACTS I know): I don’t blindly follow the media, the government or social media ‘experts’.

Video: The Man Who Made Witchcraft (Pagan Documentary) – WICCA

Video: The Man Who Made Witchcraft (Pagan Documentary) – WICCA

A fascinating documentary from 2011 about Gerald Gardner (13 June 1884–12 February 1964) and the religion he created in England during the 1940s – Wicca. Personally, I feel this documentary would be better titled, ‘The Man Who Made WICCA’. Anyone in the know will tell you witchcraft predates Wicca by quite some time and while the two compliment one another, they are separate entities. Then again, the followers of Wicca are used to non-believers holding misconceptions about them. Some of…

Public Libraries & COVID – My fear for the future.

Public Libraries & COVID – My fear for the future.

We’ve all feared for the future of public libraries in the past following the cutting of already meagre budgets that funded public libraries and their services followed by devastating closures. Then there was the proliferation of the electronic publications and online resources for readers which many saw as a serious threat to the physical printed word in the form of books and newspapers. It now seems that the death knell for the public libraries we all know and love could…

12 Funny Horror Movies Worth Watching Tonight

12 Funny Horror Movies Worth Watching Tonight

We all love horror movies (or why else are you here?) and many of us enjoy comedies too but rarely do the two genres come together with any level of success. When I’m talking about less successful film attempts at horror/comedy alliances, movies that simply failed to achieve much horror or comedy when combining the two, I’m thinking of the deplorable ‘Scary Movie’ franchise as a prime example. The original may have been a fresh spin on things but after…
