A great tribute video by GoreyBits of the best horror scenes in The Omen, released in 1976:
Nightmare on Elm Street III is one of my favorite horror movies, and I love this spooky behind-the-scenes image with Freddy, Patricia Arquette and a decapitated prop head.
Today in 1981, David Cronenberg’s Scanners premiered!
One of my favourite moments in horror cinema, well, in cinema in general.
A trailer for The Boy II was recently released. The Boy is one of my favourite horror movies (see my review Horror Cinema: The Boy), and I am really excited to see the sequel. What I enjoyed the most about the first movie was that it wasn’t a paranormal narrative. I am curious to see how the sequel handles the doll because it looks like the story will turn into a paranormal tale. But, maybe, like the first, that is simply a misdirection.
According to actress Shelley Duvall, the infamous “Here’s Johnny!” scene took three days to film and the use of 60 doors.

A family dinner from a horror classic:
Gunnar Hansen, the actor who played Leatherface, said about filming this scene:
In one of the film’s final—and most memorable—scenes, Sally (Marilyn Burns) is tied to a chair at Leatherface’s dinner table while the family of cannibals taunt and mock her for well over five minutes of screen time. In real life, those five minutes took approximately 26 hours to shoot, according to Hansen. “The whole dinner scene is burned in my memory, I think just because of the misery of it,” he says. “At that point we were really just on the verge of mental collapse. And Marilyn told me about how awful it was for her, because she was terrified… Just being tied to a chair and then having these men looming over her constantly, she said it was really unnerving. I think that whole scene was certainly the most intense part of the movie and I think all of us were slightly insane by then.”
