Movie Review: 'Raw'
I hate the movie Raw. I hate every second of the movie Raw. This challenging cannibalistic French horror movie put me through the ringer for 99 challenging minutes and I hated it. And yet, I can’t say it isn’t a damn brilliant film. Director Julia Ducornau directs this movie with such surety, such confidence and with such undeniable wit that I have to admit my appreciation of the film as a work of art, even as I will never watch Raw ever again.

Scariest Paranormal Movies on Netflix
Oftentimes, you can find a great underrated horror movie on Netflix, but they might get lost within the myriad of provided genres. When it comes to finding any specific type of genre on Netflix, sifting through the range of offered titles can be daunting and time consuming, when all you want is a good horror to put you to bed.
Best 80s Horror Movies of All Time
Some of the most infamous horror movies of all time came out of the 1980s. As movie producers in the 2010s run out of ideas for scary movies, they frequently default to creating remakes of huge 80s franchises (like the ones we're about to tell you about). You might not have realized it before now, but today's pop culture (shoutout to Fabolous and Jadakiss's new single) is largely influenced by the best 80s horror movies.
Don't Go in There
6:45 AM My alarm clock jolted on. I groaned and buried my head under my pillow trying to ignore it. Why on earth would I set my alarm this early on a Saturday? The upbeat song that was playing ended and the local morning show hosts began cracking jokes about a marathon that is taking place today. Now I remember. I smile as I pulled my head out from under the pillow. I had entered in today's marathon. I had started running as a way to cope with a bad break up. Exercise had become an outlet to relieve my stress and depression.
A boat sailed steadily along into the open waters of an unforgiving sea. Waves pulled the boat onward, water spilling over the sides. It was a mid-sized fishing boat, meant to carry just a few people and a lot of equipment. The engine sputtered to a stop, conserving gasoline for the long trip ahead. It was an older vessel that groaned in protest of the heavy load it carried; almost double that of its suggested occupancy. It was just after sunset.
Best Horror Comedy Movies of All Time
Horror is one of the most serious genres there is, but horror comedy movies are hellbent on turning the genre inside out. Writers, directors, producers, and actors pay homage to the horror films that came before them by flipping the script, and the results are fun, thrilling flicks that satisfy both our curiosity, and our need for laughs. And don't assume all of them are stupid, either; actually, many of these movies are rather clever.

Balloxtor (Part 1)
"Is it ready, Dr.Nelson?" Nurse Joy Reeds said cautiously. A devoted employee and dearest friend. I'm surprised she stuck out with me this long and another Doctor with this experiment, most of the staff left during the project, who needs them anyway? People don't see the vision when it's in front of them I guess.
When Did Horror Become Mainstream?
“What is love, but a kind of creature waiting to be unbound? A malady. What does it bring any of us but…confusion and bedevilment?” says the prolific Dr. Victor Frankenstein on the gothic galore series Penny Dreadful. Gothic fiction will always have a place in our obsessions. Something about death, tragedy, horror, and batsh*t craziness is far too intriguing to pass up. Penny Dreadful reveled in these gothic fiction tropes while also reintroducing some of the most iconic characters that gothic fiction has to offer. A fraternized hyperbole of characteristics that range from madness, mystery, the supernatural, and, of course, creatures; these are the four legs that make the gothic fiction genre stand nice and tall.
Until Dawn (2)
Chapter 1: Symptoms 15 Years Later I sat there on the hard wooden chair with my head between my legs. I felt my stomach cramp up. I thought I was going to die, the pain was so intense in my stomach. Taking a deep breath, I waited for the pain to pass. It seemed to take forever for the pain to pass as I shut my eyes.
A Christmas Nightmare
The cold now on my bare feet, trying to melt beneath me. My lungs trying to get air as I run, my breath trying to steady. I end up hitting the tree branches on my way to safety, looking behind me every so often; it was still coming after me. One wrong step and I fell, hearing my own heart race as the monster screeched. How did this happen?
