Thanks for visiting. I’m a horror fan and have been for as long as I can remember. Well almost. When I was seven or eight my parents allowed me to watch the Hound of the Baskervilles. The original of course, the 1939 movie with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. What a treat, I remember vividly hiding behind the sofa and screaming with a mix of genuine fear and absolute delight when the Hound rose up from the misty moor.
I never looked back. I’ve loved horror ever since and whilst I read some, I watch lots. This is a blog that focuses mainly on horror cinema. It’s my little attempt to help get more movies in the spirit of that first one I saw made, and less mindless splatter pics. Don’t get me wrong, gore has its place but horror shouldn’t be synonymous with buckets of blood. Horror should be about buckets of atmosphere. It’s about the creeping quality of fear.
It’s about not knowing what’s around the corner.
