    9 Horror Movie Sets That Experienced Real Hauntings

    There’s something fun about watching a horror film. If you’re like me, you’ll probably view it from behind the nearest cushion/friend’s shoulder, but nonetheless, fear-factor aside, it’s always an exhilarating experience.

    Quest Factory: The Clinic

    What’s up everyone? It's Dannis here covering the horrifying Clinic by Quest Factory. I have heard a few different things about this room, being that one: it is pretty scary, and two, it’s more of a walk through with a puzzle here and there. So I gave my team up to the demented doctor to find out what this place was all about. I just didn't think the doctor would take me too. However, before we get into the review, here are some details about the Clinic by Quest Factory.

    Can We Have a 'What We Do in the Shadows' but With Every Mythological Creature?

    Can We Have a 'What We Do in the Shadows' but With Every Mythological Creature?

    As of recently, FX confirmed a 10-episode TV series adaptation about the acclaimed Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement's What We Do in the Shadows (2014), and both of them are working on a spin-off of the movie called We're Wolves. The horror comedy focused on the lives of a group of vampires that live in Wellington, New Zealand, recorded as a mockumentary. So, think of The Office but with vampires, which is the best concept possible. If they approached vampires, and now wolves, it raises the question: why not every single creature possible? To take a myth or creature, add comedy and an unusual setting for them, and somehow make it work. As a contribution, here are some of the endless possibilities I've thought about.

    What Frightens Us in Films and TV?

    What Frightens Us in Films and TV?

    The Oxford dictionary defines “horror” as “a literary or film genre concerned with arousing feelings of horror” (Oxford Dictionary, 2018). The horror genre has been a staple of entertainment since before the advent of the moving image. Authors such as Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Stephen King are all proof that images aren’t a necessity when eliciting emotions of fear. Yet directors have created many landmark pieces of pop culture within the horror genre, using the medium of film to create new and equally enticing works of art. But why do people enjoy scaring themselves? Dr. Jeffrey Goldstein argues that “people go to horror films because they want to be frightened… you want it to affect you... entertainment products like horror films... have big effects” (Psychology Today, 2015).
