At some point we have all sat in a cinema or relaxed with a film at home, something you’ve never seen only for something to suddenly scare the living crap out of you. These moments can be terrifying, shocking or actually quite funny. We have all seen some poor audience member jumping out of their [...]
Lists are important. Real men are defined by lists and I cannot emphasise that enough. Lists exist to bring order to the world as well as setting the bar for what every might follow. With films, lists are a means to explore the true quality found in film-making and the worst crud available.
Sci-fi and horror have [...]
For many of us talking about movies is something we just can’t help ourselves from doing. Sure, we love talking about our favourites and recommending some lesser known features. Just as enjoyable though is discussing what we hate and slating the movies that for a short time made our life a misery, possibly even questioned [...]
No horror website or tribute is complete without mention of one of its finest exponents, Stephen King.
His work is admired by so many and has influenced so many more that it is mandatory he be recognised on AndyErupts. Something I am more than happy to do. In my lifetime I list him and Roald Dahl [...]
All movie lovers out there enjoy checking out the latest in the cinema or having a flick through SkyMovies but for the real obsessives the straight-to-DVD releases are where some real gems and personal favourites can be found. Granted, there is a lot of dross to get through. It is however worth it when you [...]
Zombies. Those shambling, shuffling, moaning and groaning, undead bastards.
I know a lot of people who find the concept of zombies terrible and horrifying. Why? Because zombies are us. Instinct driven, single minded and US.
Imagine running from a crowd of zombies. Go on. Now imagine this. They corner you. You try to fight back. Their numbers are overwhelming. You try [...]
As a fervent believer in ghosts and the supernatural, I find tales of haunting and malevolent spirits far more delightfully terrifying than any axe wielding psycho killer, vampire or ghoul that cinema has to offer simply because it is more likely to happen.
Ever since I was a kid, I have revelled in ghost stories and [...]
I like when the mundane becomes terrifying. When everyday, inanimate things we take for granted show their deadly side. When Nature bares its teeth and bites back at man. What could be more inconspicuous than the common tree??? It is estimated that there are approximately 60 trees to every one person on earth. Can you [...]
Slasher movies. The ugly child living in the basement of horror.
Love them or loathe them, you simply have to accept that they exist and in doing so embrace the impact that these much maligned and shunned movies have had on horror. Formulaic, they may be. Predictable is also a fair description. In my opinion, they [...]
The Human Body. Absolutely marvellous thing. I defy anyone to dispute the claim that these constantly moving bags of muscle and bone are anything other than marvellous. The Human Body can take immense amounts of damage and keep on ticking. You could have your arm hacked off. Inconvenient, definitely, but you’d most likely survive it. [...]
