Essential 1970s Horror

It was the decade that brought you Polaroid cameras, Flokati rugs and The Vietnam War, but the 1970s also offered a plethora of magnificent horror films. While The Exorcist, The Omen and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are now considered some of the best the decade had to offer, there are a few lesser known movies, collected in this article over at FearNet, that are essential viewing for the discerning fan.

Dissecting Actor Jeffrey Combs

Most recognised for playing Dr. Herbert West in The Reanimator and its two sequels, Jeffrey Combs is widely regarded as a legend of the genre. His nervous disposition and intensity have made him a horror staple for almost three decades. This article from Arrow In The Head tells us just what it is that makes Combs’ performances unmissable.

Own The House From A Nightmare On Elm Street

1428 Elm Street holds a dear place in most horror fans’ hearts, so why not buy the place? This article from Daily Dead looks at the house in question, up for sale at a paltry $2.1million. Skipping-rope girls singing tuneless ditties are not included in the price.

5 Top Horror Final Girls

It’s common knowledge that if you’re a horror-movie slasher, don’t go after the virgin, the sensible one, the girl that refrains from drinking while everyone else partakes in drug-fuelled orgies. These seemingly harmless creatures are known as Final Girls, and will most likely be your downfall. Bloody Disgusting takes a look at five of these innocent, yet dangerous, minxes, with not a Jamie Lee Curtis in sight.

Ten Horror Movie Crossovers That Would Be Awesome

With the success of Freddy Vs Jason and Aliens Vs Predator (okay, maybe not), pairing up characters and creatures from horror franchises is an easy way to get fans talking, arguing, and actually killing one another. Who would win in a fight between The Leprechaun and that little street-speaking imp from Sorority Babes In The Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama? Okay, so that’s not one of the crossovers mentioned in this article from What Culture, but here are ten that are arguably more ridiculous, including possible plot-lines.
