From the 1950s to the 1970s, the United Kingdom’s Hammer Films company produced movies that thrill horror lovers even today. Iconic stars like Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing became nearly synonymous with the films particularly in their recurring roles in Hammer’s series of Dracula movies with Lee as Dracula and Cushing as vampire hunter Van Helsing.
Other Hammer classics include “The Mummy” and “The Curse of Frankenstein,” both of which also starred Cushing and Lee, and the popular series of Quatermass movies Read more… »

Ever since I ordered satellite TV service through WWW.SATELLITETV-HQ.COM, I’ve been on a movie-watching marathon. As a huge fan of horror flicks, I was stoked when I got to watch The Ring again. I remember being scared out of my mind when I went to see this film in the theaters about 10 years ago.
The Ring, an American remake of the Asian horror movie Ringu, was originally released in October of 2002. It went on to become the highest-grossing horror remake to date, almost tripling its production budget at the box office and reaching 2 million DVD sales on the first day of its release.
The Ring is a spine-chilling tale that follows Rachel Keller (Naomi Watts) as she investigates the strange death of her niece, Katie (Amber Tamblyn). Ultimately, Keller uncovers a video tape which shows a very sinister series of black-and-white images. Soon after watching the tape, Keller receives an ominous phone call telling her she is going to die in seven days. As the plot continues to unfold, the viewer learns more and more about the origin of the cursed videotape through a number of shocking revelations. The movie is brilliantly written, directed and acted and keeps the audience plugged to the screen throughout.
I’ve seen a lot of horror films over the past decade, and I can’t think of a better one than The Ring. It may just be the best one of the 2000s.

When it comes to horror, Stephen King is definitely the master. With 49 chilling novels under his belt and nine short story collections, not to mention the many movies that have spawned from his stories, he has covered it all.

Dracula is not only one of the most famous of all movie monsters. He is one of the most famous creations in literature. However, most people know The Count through his appearances in film. This should not come as a surprise since he has been a character that has appeared in countless (pardon the pun) films for decades. The most recent appearance of Dracula in a major film was the big budget film VAN HELSING. However, many will point to the cable TV/DVD series DRACULA 2000 as being the most popular new vehicles for Read more… »

Who has the bigger bite? Is it a vampire or a werewolf? From a forensics perspective, the answer is the werewolf. The classical vampire simply bites deep with two fangs to suck the blood from the living. Werewolves literally bite chunks out of their quarry. Wolves don’t drink the blood of their prey. They eat prey in the same manner of real feral wolf would. That requires a big bite.
Now, the newer comic book inspired vampires are depicted as apex predators which huge rows Read more… »
