Pop culture for horror junkies; all about the famous films, creepypasta tales, trends and tropes that bled from the fringes of fright into the macabre mainstream.
Rosalie Hale Deserved Better
When I read Midnight Sun last year, something bothered me on my re-read of the Twilight franchise that dominated my adolescence. No, it wasn’t just Edward’s stalker tendencies trying to be justified as romantic - the lowest point was him taking the time to oil Bella’s creaking window while she slept and then hide while she got up to go to the bathroom - it was the way Edward’s perspective undermined and patronised Rosalie’s character.
Elena Gilbert: The Death of the Protagonist
For six seasons, Nina Dobrev starred as the protagonist (as well as several other characters) of the CW show The Vampire Diaries - her character was often at the centre of many dramatic and tragic storylines. However, as a protagonist Elena Gilbert was more of the damsel archetype. A valid argument for this character could be that for the majority of the series, she was human and by default a weaker character in comparison to the supernatural counterparts.
What It Means To see 1313,
Is 1313 meaning evil or angel number? So exactly what does see number 1313 mean? The number 13 has been portrait as an unlucky number in most pop culture and some cultures. This makes people believe that when you see number 1313 means something bad or negative may happen to you.
I'm in Love with a Zombie's Daughter
I have always thought zombie stories were stupid with a capitol S, until something ordinary happened to me right in my own home. Yes, I said ordinary. I was minding my own business when our new neighbors knocked on our door and my mom invited them in. She then proceeded to call her children from the four corners of the earth to present her brood in polite fashion once the neighbors had removed their government issued radiation prevention suits. I tried to ignore her as I usually would, but she was unrelenting. “Fedar Elias Ouray!” she repeated. So, I slunk from the basement to see what the issue could be. Could anything be more earth shattering than the radiation released from the nuclear power plants when our President demanded they be ratcheted up beyond maximum capacity?
5 Horror Films Based On True Events
Truth is stranger than fiction. As a horror fan, I have seen my share of movies that claimed to be based on true stories.

Welcome back to the creepiest page on the internet. I’m your narrator, Kevin and today I will be counting down my top picks for 5 Horror Films Based On True Events. From the infamous shark movie that kept swimmers out of the water for decades to the slasher film that made you never want to sleep again. I will be talking about some of the most famous horror films that were based on real life occurrences. Let’s begin.
9 Horror Movie Cliches
Let me start by saying that I love horror movies; they are my favorite kind and I would watch horror and action all day, every day if I could. I hate romantic comedies and I have no desire to watch tearjerkers. I think there's enough real stuff to cry about in this world without crying at things that haven't really happened.
5 Fairy Tales With Dark Origins
For some of us, our parents would tell us bedtime stories like Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs to help us to go to sleep at night. They made us feel safe and secure because they all lived happily ever after, right? What if I told you that the stories we know from childhood were actually so unsettling that they kept children up at night? The Brothers Grimm were well known for collecting traditional folk tales throughout Europe in order to keep the stories alive and the stories that they collected were not actually meant for children. They were obviously made to be more appropriate for younger audiences as they became more popular among children. What’s up guys? Welcome to the creepiest page on the internet. I’m your narrator, Kevin and today I will be counting down my top picks for 5 Fairy Tales With Dark Origins. From a man with a magic flute who lures children to their deaths to a mermaid who severs her own tongue to become human, I will be talking about some of the most disturbing fairy tales that would make Disney tremble with fear. With that being said, let’s get started.
What Happened to Horror?
Horror movies have gotten weird lately, huh? It seems like they always either have some gimmick or they’re attached to existing franchises. We haven’t gotten a really solid, classic horror movie in a while.
Top 10 Cursed Videos
10. Internet – Rubber Johnny This is one of the first cursed videos to haunt the early days of YouTube, and in those days, sneaking it into hidden folders and renamed URLs was a popular way to prank friends. Created as both an experimental art film and a music video for the song “Afx237 v.7” by electronic composer Aphex Twin, the film is wall-to-wall disgust and discomfort.
Top 10 Horror Films of the 1970s.
The 1970s IMHO was the greatest decade of cinema which produced timeless classics. In fact most films mature with time. The horror genre turned it up so many notches that it reshaped the way we would view horror movies for many generations to come.
Writing: The Evil Mother
Since the beginning of storytelling, one trope has been recognised through fairy tales into adult fiction - an Evil or Wicked Mother. A mother is one of the most central figures that a character can have growing up, and her influence can have an impact on that character even as an adult. If the character is lucky, that mother will be a loving one - but in many cases, The mother figure is truly evil in a traditional sense, and is one of the worst villains one can face, especially if one of the Heroes or Love Interests is one of her children (or if she's married into his or her family as a stepmother).
Snagging The Exorcist
In the 1980s our home was rushed into the 20th century with the arrival of a VHS recorder, this arrival awoke something I had missed for several years, a love of horror. My love of horror began in the late 1970’s watching late night double bills of horror on BBC2, I’d love to say I remember the first films I saw, but I cannot. This love of horror drifted as my mother and father divorced, my Saturday night horror partner (my father) leaving home and my passion for horror while it remained, was forgotten until the arrival of the recorder. Suddenly I was taken back, through the power of recordings I was able to watch all the late-night horror I could get my hands on, which was not a lot, one film a week to be precise. As my passion of horror grew, I became acquainted with the video library just up the road from my home. I spent many days hiring movies and watching them, broadening my love of horror. But one day my visit to the video library led me to a mysterious list on the counter, the list said “horror movies for sale”, one title on the list stood out it was called The Exorcist.
