Top 6 Apocalyptic Movies to Watch at the End of the World

Our countdown to Armaggedon starts with "Planet Terror," a vicious, brutal gore fest full of big named actors and  so many memorable, albeit cheesy, one-liners that would make even the baddest B-movie maker proud.

'Marble Hornets' Writers to Join the New 'Slender' Video Game Development Team

The Slender Man video game, "Slender" is a freeware video game where you have to walk through a dark woods, armed with only a flashlight with limited battery power to help you find eight hidden pages while attempting to avoid being seen and caught by Slender Man. 

The video game was so successful, that the man behind Parsec Productions, Mark Hadley , has decided to do a full remake of the game to make it a more fleshed out experience called "Slender: The Arrival." Back in September, Parsec Productions teamed up with Blue Isle Entertainment for the development of the game. Now, the "Slender" team has got Troy Wagner, Joseph DeLage and Tim Sutton, the geniuses behind the very scary Marble Hornets Youtube Slender Man series, to join them and help them create a more powerful, terrifying storyline for the game.

Beneath the Skin: How they Did the Transformation Scene in 'An American Werewolf in London'

"An American Werewolf in London" has one of the most realistic appearing werewolf transformation sequences that I have ever seen. The movie was made in a time when CG effects were very expensive, and practical effects were king. While some companies now solely rely on CG as a crutch for their movie monsters, I find that those that still do it old school tend to have monsters that are far more real looking and convincing than their digital counterparts.

GLaDOS is in 'Pacific Rim?'

In case you  missed it, the absolutely epic trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim"  hit the Web yesterday. While watching the trailer, when the computer voice over occurred, and it began to count down for the pilots, I thought I heard a familiar robotic voice. And I was right.

GLaDOS, from "Portal" and "Portal 2" is featured in "Pacific Rim." Or more specifically, the voice actress that plays GLaDOS and the unique way that her voice is electronically manipulated to sound like a robot, is used in the film, for great effect.

Top 13 Scariest Ghost Movies

There are a lot of ghost movies in the world, and like ghosts themselves,  some are good, some are bad, and some are downright terrifying. The good ghost movies avoid cliches and get right into the suspense and horror of being haunted by the vengeful dead.

Here's my list of the top 13 scariest ghost movies. Enjoy!

Top 3 Scariest Zombie Mods

Some video games have become so popular and well loved that fans have gone out of their way to create mods, or modified versions of the game. Ever since the zombie mod, "They Hunger" for Half-Life was available for download, fans have been working on creating better, scarier zombie mods of popular games.

The zombie mod trend has caught on, and even the game developers themselves have joined in the fray to create utterly creepy and terrifying journeys into the realms of the undead.

Here's my list of the top three scariest zombie mods for video games.

You Know it's Bad When People are Literally Killing Each Other over Arguments about 'The Walking Dead'

Last year, right around the time that I started my blog in October, I went to an ill-fated Halloween party at my BFF Razor's house. I was sitting on the couch, talking with friends that I hadn't seen in about six months or so. Things were going great until I brought up the ironic fact that "Zombieland" was originally a TV show that was made into a movie, and that it was once again (at the time) about to become a TV show. Talk about a crazy cycle.

There was a drunken, most likely high, idiot at the party that I've never met before. He barged into the discussion and loudly declared that it couldn't be done. You can't have a ZOMBIE TV show and have it be successful. Especially "Zombieland."

I immediately interjected and told him that yes, in fact you could. "The Walking Dead" is a perfect example of such a thing. Not to mention the fact that the narrative of said movie was set up in an episodic format. I mean come on,  it was even called, "Zombie kill of the week."

We went back and forth for a while, and he soon ran out of intelligent things to say to counter my argument with and began to personally insult me, at which point I stood up and got in his face. I honestly was about to punch him, I was that mad.

Last week Cassie Carnage's House of Horror reached an all time 250,000 unique page views! That's a quarter million hits.

If it were money, I could buy a really nice car, or a pet puma. Or... maybe a puma in a car. Or a cat that thinks it's a puma in a Puma car.

Tyreese and Morgan to Appear on "The Walking Dead" Later This Season!

With the roster of characters on "The Walking Dead" constantly changing, it's inevitable that every once in a while, there is the addition of characters that fans have been waiting to see.

Two characters in particular that are going to be appearing in the second half of the third season include Morgan Jones from the first season of the TV series, and Tyreese, a fan favorite from the comic book.

'The Walking Dead' Episode 304: 'Killer Within'

Sneak Peek of 'The Walking Dead' Episode 306: 'Hounded'

After the demise of one (possibly two) major cast member(s), and one minor character last week, we're left wondering if Rick is going to come out of his psychotic rage, or if he has completely lost his marbles. Let's watch the sneak peek to see what happens next.

'The Walking Dead' Episode 303 'Walk with Me'

In this episode of "The Walking Dead" we have the return of Merle Dixon, we learn more about Michonne, and see that Andrea has not grown as a character in the slightest since last season. Sigh.

Return of the Top 13 Funniest Walking Dead Memes

After scouring the internet for the funniest new memes from"The Walking Dead," I have compiled a list of the top 13. Enjoy!

Foul Mouthed Turkie is back in 'ThanksKilling 3!'

There's nothing better than to relax after a long arduous day of frustrating interaction with family members that you hardly know, or like, than to watch a cheesy schlock-fest of a horror comedy. This is doubly so when it comes to the torture that is Thanksgiving.

This year, the foul mouthed Turkie from "ThanksKilling" is back, and back on a rampage. He's pissed because all of the copies of "ThanksKilling 2" were destroyed--except for one-- and Turkie will stop at nothing to get it back.

Watch the Trailer and First Exclusive Clip from 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' Now!

The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" ending with a poor girl running and screaming for her life from the maniacs that lived at the Sawyer house. The locals got together and burnt the Sawyer's stronghold to the ground. They believe that they killed the entire family... They were wrong.

'American Horror Story: Asylum' Episode 2 'Tricks and Treats'

"Tricks and Treats" begins with the lovely Jenna Tatum hysterically running away from Bloody Face while she attempts to find her lover's cell phone in order to call for help. She is chased into the room where her hubby had his arm ripped of, and manages to get the phone just as Bloody Face stabs the love of her live to death. Well, sort of.... Even after being repeatedly stabbed in the chest, and bleeding profusely from the gaping wound where his arm used to be, he manages to muster up enough strength to body check Bloody Face later on in the next episode. Must be all that adrenaline.

Top 5 Reasons Why 'Resident Evil 6' is a Train Wreck

Dear Capcom, You Can't Please Everyone, 
so why not just make a game that appeals to your own fan base and not another genre's?

While it is understandable for a video game company to attempt to create a product that sells to the broadest audience as possible in order to make the most money, what Capcom did with "Resident Evil 6" is a dismal attempt to make a game that panders to several audiences that exist outside of its survival horror niche.

'Silent Hill: Revelation' Review

"Silent Hill: Revelation" is a continuation of the first "Silent Hill" movie, and unfortunately, it pales in comparison to its predecessor. The ending was good though, with a monster fight that would make most Silent Hill fanboys have a geek-gasm over.

When we last left off in Let's Play Silent Hill Part 2, we had solved the clock tower puzzle and had just entered the Nightmare Realm of Midwhich Elementary School... man is this place creepy. You just never know when something is going to lunge out of the darkness and try to chew your ankles off.

'In Fear Of' Director Mike Polizzi Talks About 'Selenophobia'

Very seldom do I come across a werewolf movie or TV show that is unique and entertaining. "Selenophobia: Fear of the Moon" is an episode of the "In Fear Of" Web series that tastefully portrays a woman's struggle to fight the best within, and the choice her lover has to make to end her life with silver bullets. I liked "Selenophobia" so much, that I decided to interview the director, Mike Polizzi. Check it out!

'In Fear Of' Youtube Web Series Director Scott Perry Talks About 'Achluophobia'

Scott Perry directed three episodes of the new horror Web series on Youtube called "In Fear Of." They are "Thanatophobia: Fear of Death," "Achluophobia: Fear of the Dark" and "Monophobia: Fear of Being Alone." All three are very well done and manage to create a suspenseful atmosphere full of dread and terror. "Monophobia" is about a serial killer who acts a little like Ted Bundy, killing people just to prevent them from leaving her. It is full of dark humor and has a twisted ending that I just loved. "Thanatophobia" has a twist ending that is not easy to predict, something that is extremely hard to pull off and shows just how talented Perry is. "Achluophobia" is by far the best in terms of creating a suspenseful atmosphere. It has a way of getting to you that very few short horror films do, and is definitely a must see for anyone who loves to be scared.

New Youtube series 'In Fear Of' Director Jeremiah Kipp Talks About 'Podophobia'

"In Fear Of" is a horror anthology Web series that goes live this week on Youtube on Halloween. I had the chance to catch a sneak peek at the series, and was really impressed with how truly terrifying this series is. In fact, I was so impressed that I decided to interview three of the directors from the series. My first interview was with Jeremiah Kipp, who I interviewed last year and reviewed his wonderful short horror films, "Contact" and "Crestfallen."

'The Walking Dead' Episode 302: 'Sick'

Previously on "The Walking Dead," Hershel had been bitten by a walker and Rick had brutally hacked off his leg with a hatchet. Hershel is bleeding out badly, and it may kill him, so time is of the essence to get the wound treated by Carol. Hershel taught Carol first aid, but she isn't a trained doctor, so her medical knowledge is limited.

Red Band Trailer for 'Evil Dead' Remake is Here and It's Not Safe for Work!

I have to admit, I was really skeptical when I heard that there was going to be a remake of the cult classic horror film "Evil Dead." But after watching the red band trailer for the movie, I have to say, I'm impressed. It looks like the movie took itself seriously, and is much darker in tone than the original. Check it out!

But be warned, the language and violence on this video isn't appropriate for children, or your boss, so don't watch this one at work, OK?

Preview of Episode 302 of 'The Walking Dead: Walk with Me'

Well, after a very hair-raising encounter with a small bunch of prisoners, it appears that this week's episode of "The Walking Dead" will focus more on Andrea and Michonne. Unfortunately, the sneak peak provided to us this week doesn't really tell us much, it just shows Andrea and Michonne walking towards a plume of black smoke. Talk about disappointing.

'American Horror Story: Asylum' Episode 1: 'Welcome to Briarcliff'

"American Horror Story: Asylum" can best be described as a horrible hodge-podge monstrosity of "Fire in the Sky" meets "The Island of Dr. Moreau" meets "Freaks" meets "The Magdelene Sisters" meets "Girl Interrupted" meets "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Throw in any title of a bad B-horror slasher movie with a killer that has an unimaginative name from the 1980s to get a premier episode that is just jammed to the gills with clashing fictional archetypes that have no business being in the same room together, let alone in the same episode, and you'll have the first episode of "American Horror Story: Asylum."

Preview for 'American Horror Story: Asylum' Episode 2: Tricks and Treats

Check out the preview of "American Horror Story: Asylum" for a taste of the craziness to come. Since last week was so incredibly hard to follow and had more WTF moments than a donkey wearing a black leather vest at a gay parade, I just can't wait to see what ridiculous things they do this week.

Here's a fun fact:
In the video below, when Dr. Arden says "Our Sapphic reporter" here's referring to the term Sapphic love, which is a phrase used to describe the love felt between two lesbians. The term comes from the name of the Greek poet Sappho, who lived on the island of Lesbos. Yes, that island, where the term lesbian is derived.  Sappho wrote homoerotic poems about her love of women, which may or may not be autobiographical in nature. And now you know.

'The Walking Dead' Season Three Episode 1: 'Seed'

With much of season two of "The Walking Dead" being wasted on filler episodes and the search for Sophia (who was hiding the barn the entire time, tee hee!)

The Top Six Best Found Footage Horror Films

Found footage films are the darling of the horror industry. The roots of the style can be traced all the way back to "Cannibal Holocaust"-- a mockumentary (i.e. fake documentary) that featured the real slaying of animals on screen.

In the 1990s the found footage film really started to make its mark with made for TV productions such as BBC's "Ghostwatch" and "Alien Abduction: The Incident in Lake County." Shortly thereafter, "The Blair Witch Project" appeared in theaters, and horror has never been the same since.

With so many found footage films being pumped out by studios nowadays (mainly because they are so cheap to make) we have many examples of movies that are really freaking scary, and ones that are so bad that they're boring to watch.

Here's a list of the best found footage horror films of all times.

'Dead Island: Riptide' to Have Same Characters as 'Dead Island'

The latest news about "Dead Island: Riptide" is that it will pick up just where the first game (and the novelization of said game) left off, with the gang riding in a helicopter on their escape from Banoi as a powerful monsoon started to pummel the region.
