“Four more years, four more years…..” Way more exciting than the presidential election, we think you’ll agree, is the fact that our little website turned the grand old age of four this month. What started as a modest outfit of just three horror loving pals, has turned into much more than we could ever have [...]

Atmospheric, creepy and filled with foreboding, The Last Will & Testament of Rosalind Leigh (or TLW&ToRL as I’ll call it… catchy, huh?) has a helluva lot of style seeping from its pores. It is genuinely well crafted and beautifully directed by Rodrigo Gudiño, who manages to eek out tension and uneasiness from one man and [...]

Hot on the heels of their Amnesia : The Dark Descent reaction videos, and by that we mean almost an entire year later, those lazy swines are back with their take on the now infamous Slender Reaction Video. Everyone and their Nan has done it so we’d be remiss not to give it a bash. [...]
