Horror Classics: The House on Haunted Hill
Welcome back to the Horror Classics series! Last time we discussed Twins of Evil, the third entry in Hammer Studios' Karnstien Trilogy. Now, there are many more Hammer films to discuss but I can't only do those; I have to do other films too. With that in mind, I thought I'd share a personal favorite of mine: House on Haunted Hill.
‘Candyman’ (2021) Movie Review
Candyman (2021), the latest in the current trend of belated sequels to classic movies, is about Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II), an artist in Chicago who visits the now-gentrified Cabrini Green housing project and learns the legend of Candyman, a hook-handed, fur-coated supernatural killer who appears if you say his name five times while looking in a mirror. Inspired by the legend, Anthony creates an art installation meant to invite viewers to summon the titular killer. But of course, people around him begin to die, and his grip on reality starts to slip.
Once Touched, Twice Scarred
Mila was a kind soul. A tall slender woman, with soft African features complimenting her chocolate skin tone. She wore her hair in a parade of coloured braids, often donned by one of an array of colourful headscarves. Alongside interpretation of lost languages, she practised as a spiritual healer, often using crystals, homemade candles and herbs of which she would recommend different methods of use, dependant on the client and their purpose. Levi had always been fascinated with his mother's tattoos. They were an intricate mesh of beautiful patterns, wording that he could never read, images of distant lands and the strategic placement of constellations, decorating her skin. "Words and symbols of love and protection" she'd reassure his puzzled face "The truest words of the soul"
10 Horror Villains Who Have Emerged Since the Birth of the Millennium
While it can be argued that a lot of horror offerings since the year 2000 have been sub-par or have been reboots/remakes of classic horror stories, there have been a decent amount of villains that have really demonstrated how the film industry has changed the genre. Although not all of the villains we've been introduced to could be considered "original," we can all agree that the portrayal of them over the past 20 years in film and television has definitely given villains a resurgence and given audiences something to love or hate. They also give us a promising look forward into the future of the horror genre.

Broke Down House
There is something red on the lawn. It glistens below the pyrifolia tree. There is something red on the lawn. Coarse, bristling nettles. It glistens below the pyrifolia tree. There is something red on the lawn.
Driver for the Dead
She came to me while I slept. I was blurry eyed and still half asleep when I agreed, fetching my keys and wandering to the car. It was once in the car, with only the moon and the green of traffic lights scattering color across sodden blacktop, that I realized what was happening.

But it turns out that the killer alien creatures aren’t the only adversaries they’ll have to face.
The Last Josh
I've been in a coma for the last six months. I was fortunate, they say. The semi-truck that hit my car killed my mother and my fiancee but spared me. Well, not spared, I guess. I had two broken legs, a shattered collar bone, and I was in a persistent vegetative state for six months, three weeks, and two days. I awoke on April twenty-sixth, two thousand twenty-one.
I obsessively watched her standing there alone in the dark. The silver moonlight flickered on her dark, raven hair like a million tiny diamonds. Her pale blue eyes were thoughtful and attentive to the darkness before her. Her succulent, pouting lips had the appearance of a fine, red wine. I had forgotten just how well-formed and beautiful she was. Knowing that I would never see her again made her seem even more captivating.
Blood ain’t red when it runs down a sink. In the movies, they always make it bright, bursting red, but it’s not actually like that. It goes a little yellow once it starts slipping away, retreating like a coward.
