I know what you’re thinking. Horror? Relaxing? Surely you kid. Nope! Though horror films are meant to thrill, scare, and discomfit us, there are a handful of movies I enjoy watching in my downtime. As everyone who reads this should know by now, I’m a big rewatcher, and familiarity breeds comfort. Each of these five […]
Confession time!! I would spin this article as a companion piece to our recent review of Irish horror, Sea Fever, but this article has been in the making since before Underwater. Aquatic horror pretty much died off in the 90s, so getting two films about the danger of the big blue this year is a […]
Sometimes the best horror movies, the ones that get under our skin and leave us flinching at shadows, are the ones with the strangest ideas behind them. If you do a double-take after hearing the premise of these movies, you’ll be doubly surprised at how good the films turn out to be. A Haunted Video […]
Horror movies often draw their inspiration from books. It takes a lot of talent to make a book truly terrifying; without jumpscares and music scores to offer cheap thrills, books have to do a lot of work to horrify an audience. When a book horrifies, it’s much more likely for that book to end up with a movie deal. Out of this list of terrifying horror movies with scary basements, consider these, which were all based on books.

Sleepaway Camp (1983) – 5.12.2020 I have this movie on DVD as part of the “Survival Kit” including the first two sequels.

Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) – 5.2.2020 I have the 30th anniversary DVD of this film and decided to buy the 40th anniversary Blu Ray for better picture quality. Although this is a grainy movie and rightfully so, I could still see the difference in sharpness and color between the two versions. I think this […]
Night of the Comet (1984) – 5.5.2020 I first saw this movie when I was a kid one day after school. I came home and my mom was watching it already so I missed what happened before the comet appeared. I loved the movie right away, though. Night of the Comet came out at the […]
The Stepfather (1987) – 5.22.2020 I had never seen this movie before. I saw that there are a few sequels and I have seen the 2009 remake. I remember liking the remake, it was chilling. The original is probably more of a thriller rather than straight horror and I probably should have known this prior […]
