The Merkins are a musical band dedicated to the horror of all occasions! The holidays rarely rhyme with horror or slasher flicks. But The Merkins somehow make it work.
The Holiday Cheers All Around
That’s right, Biters. I meant to have this article out for October, but I missed that deadline. But that’s okay because, as goths, we let our Halloween spirit run all year long, including the Winter Solstice / Yule / Christmas.
Before watching the new Hellraiser series that looks absolutely fantastic, I wanted to watch the ten movies from the iconic franchise. One strangely stood out, to my surprise. It’s one everyone totally forgot about or doesn’t even know exists!
Before We Start, There Are Sights I Want You To See! Well, No, But Read It!
This is an in-depth review of the forgotten movie HellraiserHellworld from 2005. I rewatched the entire movie franchise and came out with subjects related to the plot of the Hellworld movie or eighth instalment. If you plan on watching the movie, do not keep reading this article, as it might ruin it for you.
This is all personal, and I respect everyone’s view of the movie and the Hellraiser franchise. Also, this is a subjective article and an opinion of the movie.
There are many faces to horror, and some old tricks can become new again if done masterfully. The Hell House LLC trilogy is one of those unique movies that leave a mark and relaunched the found footage style for the better.
The Official Summary
Hell House LLC
Five years after an unexplained malfunction causes the death of fifteen tour-goers and staff on the opening night of a Halloween haunted house tour, Hell House, a documentary film crew visits the scene of the tragedy to investigate what really happened that night.
Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel
It’s been eight years since the opening night tragedy of Hell House LLC, and even so, many unanswered questions remain.
When we think about horror movies or series, we only think about the big screen names. But forced to be inside had me discover gems behind the curtains.
According To The Critiques
Mainstream vs. indie horror is a fair question. If we are talking about horror movies, titles like Halloween and Friday the 13th comes to mind. We can go older with The Exorcist and Psycho. It goes back to the 30s with Dracula and Frankenstein.
Horror is a genre that has been snubbed over the years, over decades! The general public sees horror as a genre without paying attention to all the subgenres. Horror is the tip of the iceberg, it’s what we see but everything underneath are the subgenres.
My favorite horror movie genre is found footage. It’s like I can’t get enough of that style, and I know what many people think, it’s cheap, and it’s cheesy and bad. But, many underrated movies are gaining popularity in the genre. Here are some!
The Found Footage Debate
Many of us believe that the found footage style began with The Blair Witch Project in 1999. Then you have those who argue that Cannibal Holocaust from 1980 is the first of its kind. However, maybe some of us were wrong. The ups and downs of found-footage started in the new millennium for sure!
*** Before we go any further, let’s remind ourselves of a great tool to avoid trauma while watching horror movies: Does The Dog Die ***
While Cannibal Holocaust was part found footage, it wasn’t all found footage. However, maybe they were the first to exploit the marketing method of asking their actors to hide to reinforce the “true story” part. The director was also dragged to court and had to pay a fee for animal cruelty.
For the month of Halloween, our writer, James Vaughan, came up with this great idea of showing you how to make your very own dog bandana for Halloween! No reason to exclude our furry friends out of the Halloween fun!
No Rejection for the Furry Monsters!
Greetings, Biters. For this occasion, I thought I’d do something unique and teach you how to make one of my favorite projects a pet bandana.
After all, every witch has her cat, every demon needs a faithful hell hound, and what’s a Vampire without bats.
Gothic Bite Magazine recognizes that we all have different taste and that is amazing because in our opinion it means that there are no real good or bad movies. It all depends on the taste of each person.
For that reason, we decided not to offer a Top 100 BAD Horror Movies, but Cheesy instead and more about the appearance or in funny manners. So, here are our picks!
Let’s face it, Halloween is all about sweets and candy. Monsters know a lot about cookies and candy.
We know how to make them and where to get the right dirt to haunt them good.
Everyone looking for recipes often ends up on a post on Pinterest called Spooky Cookies. However, not all turn out well. I, myself, had to make some small little adjustments to the recipe to make it work. Working with blog recipes, sometimes seem so easy and too good to be true! It usually is.
