BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill

  1. I’m a huge PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS fan, because it’s the most openly political of Craven’s films and also the most fun!

  2. My favourite Wes Craven film is A Nightmare on Elm Street, he breathed new life into a dying genre of films (the slashers of the early 80’s) with this, much like 12 years later when he did the same with Scream. Plus, he created one of the most iconic horror characters of all time with Freddy!

  3. People Under The Stairs for definite. Never gt tired of this one. I always think about it if I hear a creak in my house or inside the piano. It’s like a fucked up borrowers for normal sized people. Love it.

  4. Massive fan single ANOES and love last house in the left and the hills have eyes

  5. Massive fan since ANOES and love last house in the left and the hills have eyes

  6. The Hills Have Eyes it was the first film i ever watched so has a lot of memories ??

  7. Scream, simple concept and excellent execution

  8. ANOES has got to be the one for originality alone… though Deadly Friend does have it’s (ridiculous) moments ha ha

  9. I love people under the stairs, it was the first truly twisted horror movie I saw when I was younger, for me it changed the way I wanted to see horror movies

  10. The Last House On The Left (1972), the first “video nasty” I saw and it didn’t have a supernatural angle.

  11. The Hills Have Eyes is my favourite because it’s the first horror film I saw that actually scared me. Still one of my favourites, to this day 🙂

  12. The Last House On The Left ,loved it

  13. Scream because it reinvigorated the whole teen horror genre.

  14. so loved last house on the left vintage

  15. The Hills Have Eyes. It may be quite dated now but the movie is still disturbing.

  16. Nightmare on Elm Street because it’s the on’y horror film that’s scared me.

  17. Nightmare on Elm Street

  18. Scream, the first of the post-modern horrors. As a slasher fan I love it on release and it’s still great now.

  19. I always watch horror films in bed all lights out and with headphones on so i can have it “loud” ! “people under the stairs” still works every time. Boo !

  20. It’s a real tough choice for me between A Nightmare on Elm Street, on it’s release truly something new and scary, and Scream, but I think that The pre-quip Freddy Krueger beats out Ghostface. So take a bow Nightmare on Elm Street

  21. Scream – a simple theme but able to produce a franchise. A little frighning, a little comedy , good entertainment

  22. It has to be A Nightmare On Elm Street. Just because even though they were slasher type films they still had a story to them and Freddie Krueger was so scary!

  23. My favorite is A Nightmare on Elm Street. It’s an all time classic. I have watched every one of them over and over. Elm street was the highlight of my

  24. got to be a nightmare on elm street

  25. the i love of Wes Craven film is A Nightmare on Elm Street i cpould not sleep as watching this film

  26. Gotta be Nightmare on Elm Street. I watched it on video with my family and just as it got to one of the scary bits I jumped up shouting “Time to put the kettle on”. We had to peel my sister in law off the ceiling. Ha Ha!!!!!

  27. Deadly Friend – based on the novel Friend which I’d previously read, and Nightmare on Elm Street. One was scifi horror, the other supernatural horror but equally enjoyable.

  28. Definitely Scream. Nice simple slasher film with no complicated plot and torture porn you see in today’s movies.

  29. Scream. Brought back the horror movie to the big screen by reinventing the Slasher genre. A mixture of dark humour, endless references, tense scares which opened up horror to a new generation.

  30. Nightmare on elm street, freddy was such a good slasher. He is one of the horror icons that I think will live on forever.

  31. Has to be A Nightmare On Elm Street. At the time of its release it was cutting edge horror. Nothing quite like it had been seen and to this day it is still being copied. One of the best ever of its genre

  32. A Nightmare on Elm Street for sure. Out favourite saying for a while after that was “Freddy’s going to get you”.

  33. The original Nightmare on Elm Street – so cool!

  34. The Hills have eyes, i love it because it scared me!

  38. A Nightmare on Elm Street : Just awesome; created an iconic Horror movie character up there with the best

  39. I like A Nightmare on Elm Street – a film that spawned one of the most iconic characters in cinema history.

  40. It has to be all the nightmare on Elm Street films, however much you watch them they still pack that scary punch even after all these years, pure classics ????

  41. “Red Eye” because it was a very entertaining thriller and Cillian Murphy played a great villain.

  42. I always liked The Last House on the Left to be honest, a really horrible scary film.

  43. got to be nightmare on elm street it still scares me so much to this day and i always think if it scares you that much its a top horror film ( although i am a real wuss )

  44. A Nightmare on Elm Street; because of Freddy.

  45. It has to be Scream for me because almost every sleepover we’d have as teenagers we’d watch this and scare the hell out of each other, so for the memories, Scream.

  46. A Nightmare On Elm Street – such a classic. Loved the unique Freddie Krueger

  47. I thought Last House on the Left was a brilliant film and it still has the power to shock and disturb its audience.

  48. A Nightmare on Elm Street. A classic slasher…..

  49. The hills have eyes could be so real

  50. A Nightmare On Elm Street – just because it’s a classic of the genre, and is still just as watchable and enjoyable over 30 years on

  58. The Hills Have Eyes, not the norm

  59. new nightmare. years ahead of it’s time meta-horror.

  60. The Nightmare on Elm Street series!

  61. Huge fan of A Nightmare On Elm Street – reinvigorated the genre with superb cinematography and an enthralling storyline

  62. The Hills have eyes because of the scary characters and like in real life a small problem can suddenly snowball into a big problem.

  63. A nightmare on Elm street is my favourite, because it was one of the first horrors i saw and it has a young Johnny Depp in it….. 😉

  64. My fave Craven film is Last House on the Left – it’s just so Grindhouse and nasty!

  65. Wes Craven’s “The People Under the Stairs” is my favourite, this film gave me goosebumps in error ’90s and it still does!

  66. Scream – Was my first ever horror that I actually sat down and watched from start to finish. A great introduction to Wes Craven which lead me onto watching the other classic that is Nightmare on Elm Street.

  80. Deadly Friend 🙂

  81. The Hills Have Eyes. Michael Berryman is great!

  98. The Hills Have Eyes

  99. Scream because it totally changed the genre and reinvigorated it for a modern era.

  100. Nightmare on Elm Street is one of the early scary films that left an impact.

  101. Nightmare on Elm Street. Who didnt have nightmares. scariest teem film ever

  102. A Nightmare On Elm Street: Freddie’s progenesis has him at his frightening best before his maturation throughtout a seemingly endless list of sequels that brought him down to a Halloween Party Trick.

  103. nightmare on elm street series were my favourite

  104. Last House on the Left – terrified me when I was little when I heard my big brother and his friends talk about it, and when I was old enough to watch it, it scared the pants off me, and lived up to expectations

  105. the last house on the left so different

  106. A Nightmare On Elm Street. Simply brilliant.

  107. The Hills Have Eyes. Petrifying. Had nightmares for ages!!

  108. A Nightmare on Elm Street – i love Freddy

  109. I love the people under the stairs really underrated in my opinion!


    as everyone else seems to hate it !

  111. A Nightmare on Elm Street for me, I remember being petrified as a youngster of it but watched it so many times anyway and it gave me my love of horror films. I will always enjoy watching this film!

  112. Probably an unpopular choice but I have to say Scream, it just gave a new lease of life to a tired genre. Just the right amount of creepiness, blood and humour 🙂

  113. My favourite is The Hills Have Eyes. With its exhilerating, fast pace you certainly don’t want to disappear to make a cup of tea. Delivering a beautifully gross bloodbath it constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat. I’m always torn between not wanting to blink or to cover my eyes! It’s a master of a remake.

  114. Scream. I think it brought slasher movies back with a vengeance and set a high standard for others to follow

  115. Nightmare on Elm Street. I remember going to the cinema to see it when I was younger and it was the first film to truly scare me!

  116. The Hills Have eyes terrifying one of the only horrors to really scare

  117. Any of the Scream franchise, they are such great fun 😀

  118. Has to be a nightmare on elm street. classic horror that scared the pants off me growing up .

  119. The Hills Have eyes.
    It was the first horror film I watched that actually scared me.

  120. Scream, it was full of suspense and twist and turns.

  121. Nightmare on Elm Street always! I first watched it when I was a kid, I remember having nightmares but I’ve loved it ever since! Hate the remake, it’s awful -_-

  122. A Nightmare on Elm Street – such a classic, you can’t get it out of your head.

  123. The Hills have Eyes

  124. Wishmaster

  125. Vampire In Brooklyn.
    One of my favourite “so bad it’s good” movies.

  126. The whole series of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Brilliant

  127. The last house on the left as it leaves you wondering at every turn what was going to happen next and has plenty of hold your breath moments thoroughly enjoyed it

  128. Not very original but it has to be A Nightmare on Elm Street, I grew up with Freddy scaring the crap out of me. The first one was the best easily although Dream Warriors was awesome too

  129. Last House on the Left, bit different from Scream and Nightmare on Elm Street. A lot more serious and more twisted but a really good story and well produced.

  130. Going to be predictable but Scream – best tongue in cheek horror ever.

  131. Scream. It shock up the genre just when it needed to happen, which co-incided with just the right time I was at the age when these films were allowed

  132. Got to be Nightmare on Elm Street. It takes me right back to my teenage years!

  133. NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET scared me as a kid still scares me as an adult, freddie is the ultimate villian and wes craven is ultimate master of hoorror

  134. Anyone who is familiar with Wes Craven’s films knows that he is a horror legend, making such classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes, and Scream. While those are some of his most famous films, I’d say Starnger in our House is just as good as all of them and doesn’t get anywhere near enough recognition.

  135. I love the scream series especially the first one, it’s just the right amount of scary for a chicken like me

  136. A Nightmare on Elm Street. Has the best baddie in my eyes!

  137. Scream because was the first horror film I saw and loved it it was all people talked about at primary school x

  138. For me, it is Scream. I was so young when Craven’s Nightmare on Elm Street came out and I remember never wanting to watch it or any of those 80s horror series, such as Friday the 13th or Hellraiser, because the characters on the posters were terrifying enough. When Scream came out, it poked fun at the genre and managed to produce both laughs and frights. It made me realise there was humour in horror and I was finally able to sit back and enjoy the genre.

  139. Shocker with Mitch Pileggi, i only brought it as i was a huge fan of The X-Files and its one of the most underrated horror’s in my book great movie.

  140. A Nightmare on Elm Street , iconic !

  141. Has to be sceam, everyone says i look like Drew!

  142. Scream – I like the comedy aspect of the film. Good ham it up acting, good characters and simple plot. Great film.

  143. Scream, was the first scary film I ever watched!

  144. nightmare on elm street….. Freddy scared the sh*t out of me as a kid, still cant get the 1,2 song out my head! xx

  145. Love the scream movies

  148. The Hills have eyes kept me glued to my seat at the cinema.

  149. the people under the stairs its just so freaky i was glued to the screen

  150. SCREAM because it leaves me on edge all the time

  151. Nightmare on Elm street when I first saw the film I found it really really scary

  152. The Hills Have Eyes I was so scared for 2 weeks, its mean good horror!!!

  153. nightmare on elm street because it stands in a class of its own xx

  154. Nightmare on elm street the scene when her feet stick like glue and sink into the stairs is terrifying

  155. The Hills Have Eyes – Michael Berryman is definitely someone you don’t want to meet in the wilderness

  156. My favourite has to be A Nightmare on Elm Street.It brings back great memories of all the fun me and my big brother used to have of scaring each other for days after watching the film!

  162. Scream without a doubt – one of the defining films of my generation and the only 18 rated film my mum would let me watch for some weird reason?? Hahah

  163. Nightmare on Elm Street – although the standard dropped as the sequels mounted up, the original is a fantastic movie

  164. Scream as I grew up with it as a teenager and loved them!

  165. The original Nightmare on Elm Street – I couldn’t sleep for days after the first time I watched that film!!

  166. scream as it just great and in some parts funny xx

  167. Without a doubt it would be Scream – one of my all time favourite films

  168. nightmare on elm street – it really scared me when i was younger

  169. Scream was my favourite if only for the fast paced start that sets the tempo for the rest of the film! How many other directors would willingly have bumped off a big name like Drew Barrymore in the opening scene of a movie?

  170. Scream – once seen, never forgotten

  171. The original nightmare on elm street has to be my favourite. It literally scared me from sleeping! 🙂 x

  183. The Hills Have Eyes – because this was the first film that really spooked me.

  184. Scream is my fave as when I was a teen the horror genre was board and stale and this movie totally revitalised it, by killing off the biggest star in the first 5 minutes, it made me excited for horror films again

  185. A nightmare on elm street 3. As it is the best in the series and Freddy is at his best finding fun ways to dispatch his victims
