Trashy 80s Horror

There's something magical about 1980's horror movies that simply can't be found in any film made before or since. They were your cheesy movies full of giant monsters, gross special effects, and some of the most incomprehensible plots you'll ever find on the big screen.

Return of the Living Dead

Psychological Horror

Sometimes the scariest things come from our own minds. Psychological horror creates a sense of terror in both the characters and the audience. These films build up paranoia and suspense. You don’t know who you can trust. Most importantly, you don’t know if you can trust your own brain.

Paranormal Horror

Paranormal horror preys on our fears of unknown entities. This includes ghosts, spirits, and apparitions. These films typically take place in haunted houses, or other haunted locations such as abandoned buildings, mental health facilities, and cemeteries.

Extreme Gore

Also known as torture porn, this sub-genre depicted bouts of extreme violence and explicit scenes of torture and mutilation. The sub-genre inherently indulges in sadism delivered by an often-motiveless villain, granting audiences satisfaction, and gratification when it comes to gore and physical violence.

Shot On Video

Shot-on-video films emerged in the wake of the release of Sony's professional-grade Betacam and consumer-grade Betamovie camcorders in 1983. Many shot-on-video films are low-budget and belong to the horror genre. This does not need to be shot on video but needs to look like it in post. 


Woodchipper Massacre
Video Violence



Vampires have been a staple in the horror genre long before any other movie monster. Vampire films all have different sets of rules for their vampires, but they always keep one thing the same—they need blood to live.

Home Invasion

Everyone loves being at home. It is our safe space and a place of comfort. Home Invasion horror movies use this sense of security to scare their audiences. People breaking into our homes is a common fear. These films bring that fear to life.

Horror Comedy

When combined correctly, the blend of horror and comedy can make for a great film. Many horror movies are campy by nature, and comedy can help elevate and enhance those aspects. Also, most comedy movies do not deal with horror-based settings and characters. Horror comedy creates a unique spin on these genres.

Witches and occult

Films that feature witches or cults tend to play on the tropes that have been given to the characters long ago in history. Some movies depict a hierarchy with other lesser magical beings, but the goal of the cults and witches tends to be the same—serve a higher being.

Horror Spoof

While parody and spoof are often conflated, a spoof has its own characteristics. Unlike parodies that mock a specific work, spoofs mock an entire genre. Spoofs use humor to imitate a particular genre, such as horror films or romance novels.
