[45 photos] Good Horror Movies Every Fan Has To See If you ask people on the street for some suggestions of a great horror movie, odds are you'd get a wide range of answers. You’d get everything from the scariest slasher film to horror comedies and even b-rated horror movies that barely classify for the genre.

Horror Cinema 2011: 20 Best, 20 Worst, and 13 to Watch Out for Next Year Not very long ago I was commenting (ok, whining) that 2011 was one "weak-ass" year for fans of horror cinema. But then I sat down to write a top ten, which became a top twenty ... plus a bunch of "honorable mention" titles left over. And after I finished cobbling together a Bottom 20, just to keep things even, I was irritated to notice that I've already seen at least 13 2012 horror flicks that also deserved a mention. So here's the whole package, courtesy of me, Movies.com editor and resident film critic for FEARnet.com.
50 Greatest Independent Films 50. El Mariachi (1992), d. Robert Rodriguez Robert Rodriguez may be a household name, but back in 1992 he was an impoverished would-be filmmaker who raised $3,000 of the film's $7,000 shooting budget as a volunteer for experimental drug testing. The Ten Best Horror Movies You Haven’t Seen October means Halloween, and Halloween means horror, and horror? Well that means some damn good movies. I presume many of you are searching for a good horror flick to curl up with this month, and while I will advise you to first consult my 10 Best Horror Films of Decade list, I thought I’d compile a new one made up of films that aren’t quite as widely known. Yes, I love The Ring, The Orphanage and The Descent, but there are smaller, more niche movies that are deserving of your attention, and really, once you’ve been scared or grossed out once, it’s not quite the same if you watch the same film again. Here are some new titles that some of you may have seen, but I predict most of you will have not.
The Best Science Fiction Books (According to Reddit) Recently, someone asked Reddit for a list of the best science fiction books of all time. Being a fan of sci-fi, and wanting to expand my own reading list, I thought it would be helpful to tally the results and preserve them here for future reference. I've also included selected quotes from the comments, as well as my own notes on the books I've already read. PS: All book images in this post are copyright Amazon, and were retrieved using my Big Book Search Engine. 5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain...
Nerd Blerp - 10 Great Horror Films Youve Never Seen Being a fan of all things horror, I thought it high-time I showed some love for the genre on this site. Horror films are great because they appeal to our most base natures, but also because they are allowed to be as loopy and imaginative as they want...well, at lest they used to be. These days, imagination has been replaced by lots of gore and cheap 'jump-out-of-your-seat' shocks.
You Missed It: The 10 Most Unfairly Overlooked Movies Of 2011 This time of year, everyone looks back on the last 12 months and takes stock, of what went right and what went wrong, what we're going to do better next year. When you write about movies for a living or even see a lot of them, that list usually is just a bunch of film titles-- what you loved goes into a top 10 list, what you hated gets passionately derided, and everything in the middle can sometimes slip away entirely. But everyone knows that movies aren't just "great" or "awful," and every year there are movies that are perfectly good, maybe even great, that get overlooked entirely.
