About Bat 7665 Articles
I 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: GTA Online & Mortal Kombat 11


  1. The Descent. Watching this on dvd in the comfort of my own living room I jumped so much at one scene that I involuntarily stood up and took a step towards the door. Never had a reaction like that before or since.

  2. It would have to be the big screen version of Stephen Kings “Misery” with a great and scary performance by Kathy Bates.

  3. The original Carrie! The calm, sinister rage simmering under the surface just waiting to lash out and destroy is so intense. Loved it!

  4. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane – dead rat on the dinner plate, Bette Davis in full blown mental breakdown, wickedly creepy and could really happen. Love it but daren’t watch it at night.

  5. Alien. A brilliant horror movie that had me shaking the first time I watched it. And Sigourney Weaver is great as Ripley.

  6. the hand that rocks the cradle = the thought of a crazy woman standing over your baby in its cot not knowing what that person has in mind to do with your child.i think that is everybodies worst nightmare,because a parent would give their own life to save their child

  7. Misery with Kathy Bates as ‘THE number one fan’. OMG. She was so creepy in that film and what she did to poor James Caan with the sledgehammer……….

  8. The Exorcist starring Linda Blair. that was truly a scary film! that was one of the first films I saw, & it was scary. (did you know the original book starred a boy in the lead!). 😈

  9. Carrie as it was one of the first horror films I watched and Sissy Spacek’s performance was chilling to the core.

  10. Carrie sticks forever in my memory as the film that most effected me emotionally. I didn`t know whether to feel sorry for her or scared of her,

  11. The Japanese version of ‘The Eye’. There’s a part where she’s in the elevator and a ghost is just hovering in the corner,omg gives me chills.

  12. It depends on the era really.
    Whatever Happened to Baby Jane with Betty Davis was probably one of my most first memorable female led horrors, Betty’s performance was fantastic and her character is totally insane…but as far as modern horror goes, I have to say Sheri Moon Zombie as Baby Firely in The Devil’s Rejects. She is scary and sexy.

  13. I guess Scream, because you don’t know what’s happening next or whether to jump with fright or jump with laughing at it.

  14. Caught ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ on TV the other night. The little girl’s (Bailee Madison) performance was brilliant. Those little ‘fairy creatures’ were horrible, Katie Holmes performance was really ‘scary’ as usual 😉

  15. Very few people in the world would agree with me but The Blair Witch Project.

    I loved the fact that you never saw anything graphic, it was purely psychological. As someone who loves the great outdoors I imagined what it would be like to follow a compass in the same direction all day and end up back where you started.

  16. It has to be The Descent as I went caving/potholing once as a teen and was freaked out by feelings of claustrophobia -I would never,never do it again not even for a large amount of money. So to be stuck underground with… THINGS!!! There are NO words…!

  17. Fatal Attraction – Helps me keep in mind “a woman scorned”, and reminds me not to get complacent of how sweet and gentle my wife appears to be! ????

  18. I would have to say American Mary, the way in which the film portrays a possible outcome of what could actually happen ( keeping her professor alive hanging on hooks) and its revenge style, I won’t ever be pissing off a surgeon

  19. Aliens.
    The first one was a classic but the sequel took it up another level in term of suspense.
    They mostly come at night, mostly.

  20. the Descent it scared the crap out of me something about being underground with no place to go really freaks me out.

  21. It’s gotta be Halloween for me. The original classic horror. From when Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode first sees Michael Myers to her battle for survival later on in the film. A fantastic character and it still holds up to this day as a frightening, tension-laced slasher movie.

  22. Watched ‘Orphan’ years ago and still find the plot twist disturbing (shan’t spoil it for those who haven’t seen it)

  23. Stephen King’s Misery, Kathy Bates is chilling to watch and it’s one of those movies that you never forget!

  24. It has to be poor Carrie-what a creepy chilling film yet i also feel so sad and sorry for her as it was out of her control 🙁 My pet hate is bullies so glad they got their comeuppance and she also inspired my Halloween costume last year!

  25. Misery by Stephen King. Kathy Bates’ performance was so good. It’s not the scariest film I’ve ever seen, but the way she acted that part was so bloody good it’s remained my favourite for many years.

  26. I would have to go with Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby. Not only was it chilling, but Mia Farrow gives one of her greatest performance. It’s a very convincing portrayal; honest and visceral. It also proves that the leading lady in horror films don’t have to be mangling and maiming to chill an audience. Rosemary’s reaction to her demonic offspring still sends a shiver down my spine.

  27. Poltergeist – I still can’t watch it, it scares the living daylights out of me, after my friend and I watched it in the dark when we were 16 🙂
