Watch The Horrible Beauty Of “The Eyes Of Hitchcock”

I’d say that “The Eyes of Hitchcock” from video essayist kogonada is right in time for Halloween season, but let’s be real, here, Hitchcock season is all year round.

Yes, Please: I Want To Go To The Great Horror Campout

I never much liked horror movies until I took a class in college called Gender and Sexuality in Horror Films (I was a Women’s Studies major, so it didn’t seem that weird at the time).

20 Non-Horror Movies That Are Absolutely Terrifying

Shakira Has Lost Her Head

Now that’s gotta hurt. UK street artist The Decapitator set about making a wackadoodle pop culture statement when he cut off Shakira’s head. Posters featuring the cover of the November issue of Rolling Stone were decimated in this rather gory fashion.

Jennifer’s Body,” a horror flick starring Megan Fox and written by Diablo Cody, is out September 19, which means it’s time for another article postulating: “Why Do Women Like Horror Movies?”
