The Best Found Footage Horror Flicks

There is a lot of found footage style horror movies that have been successful in putting the viewer into the horror film, starting from 1999's The Blair Witch Project, and getting a resurgence in 2007 with Paranormal Activity. But there is also a lot of found footage flicks that miss the mark too. To help you avoid those, and settle in for a good scare, I've put together a list of the best found footage horror films out there: Quarantine You will see the remake of the Spanish film [Rec] gracing many of my lists because it's just such a damn good movie! Quarantine follows a day in the life of a reporter who is covering a fire station when it is called out to an emergency in the apartment buil

The Best Pop Culture Witches Of All Time

Witches have fascinated and scared the world for centuries, and their depictions of strong, witchy femmes have been characters in TV Shows for ages. Here are some of the best pop culture witches that have ever graced our TV screens: Piper, Phoebe, Prue Halliwell and Paige Matthews on Charmed One of the OG of modern pop culture witches, the Halliwell sisters on the long-running TV Show Charmed charmed audiences to the idea of good witches and helped paved the way to creating the witch themed shows we love today. Originally starring Alyssa Milano as the love-lorn free spirited baby sister Phoebe (with the powers of premonition and empathy), Shannon Doherty as the strong and responsible Prue (w

Fantasy Island Is The Classic Horror Reboot 2020 Needed

Fans of classic TV shows will recognise Fantasy Island as the 1977 show the follows the accounts of visitors at a unique resort island that can fulfil any fantasy requested, but rarely turn out as expected. It had a very H.G. Wells' The Island of Dr Moreau vibe, and The Simpsons fans will recognise the Treehouse of Horror special where guests were turned into animals ala H.G. Wells' novel by the white clad Dr. Hibbert. There's a lot in the backstory that surrounds the pop culture of Fantasy Island, but this 70's TV show was more of an action/adventure/fantasy show rather than a horror. So when deciding to reboot the show into a movie like everyone in Hollywood seems to be doing nowadays, hor

Iconography: Beelzebub

He sounds like a character from Beetlegeuse, but Beelzebub is no smack talking poltergeist. With a name derived from a Philistine God, worshipped sometimes as Ekron, and associated with the Canaanite God Baal, Beezlebub is a predominantly Christian icon, who is sometimes referred to as the Devil and Satan. In Christian demonology, Beelzebub is actually one of the seven princes of Hell, and is second to Lucifer, the actual Devil. In fact, Beelzebub is actually directly referenced in the bible in Mark 3:22, where the scribes accuse Jesus of driving demons out by the power of Beelzebub, which seeing as he was a demonic entity, was the scribes of the time accusing and insulting Jesus Christ duri

We Need To Be Talking About The Creature From The Black Lagoon

When you mention the Universal Monsters what typically comes to mind is the black and white old school horror characters of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy and The Wolfman. These creatures, who had their start in novels, have been re-created, hailed and popularised in many ways, and stand firm as the best horror characters ever written. But there's someone who is missing in that list of Universal Monsters, someone who gets overlooked quite a bit from the less die-hard horror fans. I'm talking about the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and honestly we need to bring this fishy dude into the spotlight more! The Creature from the Black Lagoon was immortalised in a 1954 American black and white U

Two Unique Takes On Found Footage Horror

Found footage film burst onto the scene as a new genre of horror, and while it was the filming method of the cult favourite The Blair Witch in 1999, it didn't really hit it's stride in popularity until the 2007 horror Paranormal Activity. What came next was a rush of found footage type horror situations to put the viewer firmly within the action, and while some were successful others just succeeded in making the audience feel motion-sick. Since everyone started doing found footage the trend got outdated quickly. The idea behind why production crews wanted to make found footage films was sound - less production costs, more successful scares etc. - but the flood of the market and the rapid upd
