In 1987 they worked together for the first time. That movie was The Lost Boys, a modern classic that combined humour and horror perfectly. The Two Coreys have starred in plenty of horror movies throughout their careers, and this article from Movieweb examines those worth checking out.
We all have to start somewhere. Before I became a writer I was a fluffer for Warwick Davis, back when he was making porn, and before that I was the guy that put the bubbles in spirit levels. This article from The AV Club proves that the same can be said of these now-infamous and award-winning actors, who began their careers in made-for-TV horror anthologies.
We’ve all seen the TV shows: When Good Animals Go Bad, I Was Eaten By A Giraffe, and This Snake is Poisonous – Let’s Poke it With a Big Stick, and you would think that these would be warning enough not to mess with the forces of nature. Horror films often utilise flora and fauna to scare the living shit out of us, as this article from Sound on Sight investigates.
This article from Den of Geek looks back at Wes Craven’s 1991 suburban shocker, The People Under The Stairs, and why its residential setting has become a Craven trademark.
It’s a very good question. Haven’t we seen it all before? Watching people hacked to death no longer cuts it, and if I see one more ghost with a dislocated jaw I’m going to…probably switch the television off. So what does scare us in horror movies these days, other than seeing the words ‘Directed by Uwe Boll’ on its poster? Those lovely people over at The Dissolve discuss.
