Horror Film Page 2 Back to Start Page
On this page i will highlight some films from my absolute favourite film genre - Horror, and the more hideous the better.
And forget about pompous snore fests as The Shining or puerile teenage orientated commercial stuff as Scream.
Here we talk about horror from the Euro Golden Age 1960-80's, US 1980's slashers, and some fun US indie horror done
Non-Hollywood style. DVD and Blu-ray's, beautiful media that soon will be obsolete and forgotten due to streaming
