15 Horror Porn Parodies For The Sleazy Horror Fan

Horror is known for being sleazy and we owe that to the horror films from the 70s that broke the mold by giving the viewers some boobs with their blood and gore. However, the 70s also saw the beginning of the horror porn parodies with films like Peeping Tom, The Mad Love Life of a Hot Vampire, Dracula Suck, and so on. This is something that continues to this day with companies like Burning Angel leading the charge. So many classic horror films have fell under the money shot but here is 15 of the most popular!

Ranking All 12 Friday the 13th Films for Friday the 13th

Every Friday the 13th, a new best-of ranking emerges from Crystal Lake…

It all began with a killer title: Friday the 13th.

Producer Sean S.Cunningham was riding high off of the success that producing Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left (1972) brought him. And then John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978) gave Cunningham the highly-profitable idea to jump on the spooky date bandwagon.

Before Victor Miller was even finished with the screenplay (working title: A Long Night at Camp Blood), Cunningham commissioned an ad in International Variety magazine that showcased his soon-to-be prolific title in big block letters with the claim of “THE MOST TERRIFYING FILM EVER MADE!”

And here we are, 12 movies later, anxiously awaiting the arrival to what will undoubtedly be another half-assed, hacky, wonderful installment in this blood-soaked franchise—the 13th installment to be precise.

For reference, here is a chronological rundown of every Friday the 13th:

  • Friday the 13th (1980)
  • Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
  • Friday the 13th Part III (1982)
  • Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
  • Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985)
  • Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
  • Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
  • Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
  • Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993)
  • Jason X (2002)
  • Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
  • Friday the 13th (2009)

While most Friday the 13th fans would recommend you watch the franchise in order in its entirety to fully appreciate its ridiculousness, here is my personal ranking of the Voorhees saga to help celebrate this most unholy of days.

Ghostflowers Book Review

Some books really take you back to a particular place and time and make you feel as though you were there. Rus Wornom’s Ghostflowers is such a novel. Ghostflowers is set in the summer of 1971, centering on the July 4th weekend, in Stonebridge, Virginia (as far as I can tell, a fictional small town near Natural Bridge in the western part of Virginia). It’s clear that Wornom is a native Virginian who’s been around the block as long as I have, and that shines forth in ways big and small throughout the novel. Though it’s set just a few years before my time, I do remember the late ‘70s in Virginia, and well, Wornom has nailed that place and time like very few other writers have. As a small example of this, he gets the names of the drugstores and other stores right, and we’re talking about small regional chains that haven’t been around for decades. I mean, who remembers Miller & Rhoads department stores, or Peoples Drug Stores? (I do, because I was dragged to Miller & Rhoads for clothes shopping back then and worked at a Peoples in high school.)

The Phantom Melody

The Phantom Melody is a 1920 American silent drama film directed by Douglas Gerrard, and starring Monroe Salisbury, Henry A. Barrows, Ray Gallagher, Charles West and Jean Calhoun. The film was released by Universal Film Manufacturing Company on January 27, 1920. The film's "premature burial" plotline tilts it in the direction of being a horror film as well as a melodrama. Director Gerrard emigrated to Hollywood from Ireland in 1913 to become an actor, but quickly gravitated to film directing in 1916 with his The Price of Victory, but gave up directing soon after filming The Phantom Melody.

About All Horror

We <3 Horror Movies

The first horror movie I watched was the original Nightmare on Elm Street back in 1984 when I was just a kid. That movie really messed me up, I was afraid to sleep for weeks. The image of Tina calling to Nancy from inside that bloody body bag… damn, my 8 yr old brain was not prepared for that. And it seems every fellow fan of horror has a similar story. There’s always that one movie, that one scene, that worked on us like a drug. Sure, it took some time to get over the initial shock, but it resulted in a lifelong chase for that same feeling, that next thrill. This is what makes horror so great. Everyone had their own first experience that started their quest. And there’s so much depth to horror (eras, styles, subgenres) that seeking out the next thrill can become a hobby in itself.

This is also what makes horror so frustrating.

Nobody can tell you what's good or bad, scary or not, disturbing or tame. We all have our own taste and levels of experience with horror movies. Movies I find predictable might blow the mind of a new or casual horror movie fan. This creates a fundamental problem when clicking around looking for movie recommendations. You can spend hours looking for that next great horror, reading reviews and eventually becoming totally sold on a particular movie… that you end up hating!

“How could they possibly find this scary (or disturbing, or original, or whatever)?!!”

Sound familiar? If so, then you’ll appreciate why we created All Horror. All Horror was designed to give enough insight to help you determine whether or not you might personally enjoy a movie. We worked to identify the 10 core elements that people use when determining the value of a horror movie. By rating each movie on these 10 elements we’re showing you what you can expect of a movie. We’re helping you determine for yourself, ahead of time, if you’ll personally find a movie scary or intriguing or predictable or frustrating. All Horror was designed to help you find that next great horror, that next great thrill.

Every Crawling, Putrid Thing Book Review

I will always appreciate JournalStone bringing me the work of many horror authors I wouldn’t otherwise have been exposed to. That’s certainly the case with Every Crawling, Putrid Thing (what a great title!), which is David Busboom’s debut collection of fourteen short stories and a wonderful novella, “Nightbird,” which closes out the collection.

The Island Of The Dolls

What is the story of The Island of The Dolls?

Just south of Mexico City, between the canals of Xochimico you can find a small island with a sad background which never intended to be a tourist destination. The island is known as Isla de las Munecas (The Island of the Dolls – photos here).

It is dedicated to the lost soul of a poor girl who met her fate too soon in strange circumstances.

The area has thousands of people, but this small island is home to hundreds of terrifying dolls. Their severed limbs, decapitated heads, and blank eyes adorn trees.

Shagging the Boss Book Review

Shagging the Boss could not be more in my wheelhouse. It is the type of story I truly enjoy because it contains three of my favorite elements: the uncanny, a synthesis of the setting and theme, and monsters.

Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre

WHAT'S A "LORD BLOOD-RAH" ANYWAY?

Lord Blood-Rah is the geeky creation of Frank Wallace-Ailsworth, himself a life long horror and sci-fi geek.

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 60's/early 70s, Frank was introduced to genre films, both classic and not so classic, through the legendary TV horror host show Creature Features hosted by Bob Wilkins.

The combination of monster classics like Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, as well as lesser cult films like The Beast of Yucca Flats and Attack of the Mushroom People, with Wilkins' dry witty commentary became the inspiration that would drive the creation of Lord Blood-Rah in 2009.

In that year a close friend, Damian Chouinard, wine maker at the Chouinard Winery in Castro Valley, Ca., decided he would like to start showing horror and science fiction films at the winery. It was suggested he should have a host for these events and, when no other host was forth coming, Frank got the job.

Relying on his study of voice acting and improvisation, Frank created the character of Lord Blood-Rah; the self proclaimed High Lord of Geekdom, a proud Geek who lives to spread the love of off-beat and imaginative genre films to all those ready to "Geek Out".

On September 12th, 2009 Lord Blood-Rah took the stage at the Chouinard Winery to host the original Roger Corman camp horror film The Little Shop of Horrors, and Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre was born.

Since then, Lord Blood-Rah has hosted Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre LIVE at the Chouinard Winery every Friday Night each September, as well as many other live genre film events throughout the years including: The 80th Anniversary of Frankenstein and Dracula at the BAL Theatre, San Leandro, Zombie Day at the Rheem Theatre, Moraga (with special guest John Russo, screen writer of Night of the Living Dead), a run of genre shows at The New Parkway in Oakland and countless more each year.

In 2010 Lord Blood-Rah became the official host of the annual Drunken Zombie International Horror Film Festival in Peoria, Illinois.

In 2013, Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre made the leap to television and the web. Now Geeks, Geekerellas, Geekulas and Geekeritas all over the country, and the world online, join Lord Blood-Rah in Blood-Rah Manor each week as he presents the best, worst and wildest horror and sci-fi films ever made!

We Can Never Leave This Place Book Review

In the last few years, Eric LaRocca has developed a cult following that originated with his viral hit Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke (among other works), but he was a new author to me. LaRocca has a sick mind, and I mean that in a highly complimentary way.

5 Summer Camps That’ll Make You Earn That Survival Badge

Let these babies stay home this summer!

Summer camp is not for people like me. I had to go to a day camp once and complained the whole time. Because I almost drowned that summer, I never had to go back. I also never learned to swim, but that swimming streaming guide has passed. My bitter feelings towards summer camps might be why I enjoy watching summer camp slashers. Those who can’t do it, stay salty after all. There is something about watching 30-somethings masquerade as 15 year olds catch hatchets with their chest that helps me sleep at night. While I’m not going to unpack that, I am using it as a theme for this week’s streaming guide!

My water trauma in a two-piece that I didn’t want to wear is nothing compared to these deadly summer camps. These places are so dangerous that some don’t even get to open their doors for the “kids.” Some are so lethal that almost no one makes it out alive. They all prove that no one is doing background checks on camp counselors. I present to The Midnight Society: Five Summer Camps That’ll Make You Earn That Survival Badge. Because if I lost my shit over having to use a porta potty, then I was never going to be metal enough for this shit.

10 Horror Movie Sex Scenes with Terrifying Consequences

Context is everything! I’ve often found that horror films that push nudity or sex into a film just for the sake of the cheap thrill. Whilst there are many horror films that are filled with gratuitous nudity and wild sex scenes, much of which is completely unnecessary to pushing the films story forward, there are many films that use sex as a lynch pin to a terrible consequence later in the film. In the following list, we look at those moments of passion that gave way to terror. Here are 10 Horror Movie Sex Scenes with Terrifying Consequences.

A Bucket of Blood

Nerdy Walter Paisley (Dick Miller), a maladroit busboy at a beatnik café who doesn't fit in with the cool scene around him, attempts to woo his beautiful co-worker, Carla (Barboura Morris), by making a bust of her. When his klutziness results in the death of his landlady's cat, he panics and hides its body under a layer of plaster. But when Carla and her friends enthuse over the resulting artwork, Walter decides to create some bigger and more elaborate pieces using the same artistic process.
