In Blood Splattered Cinema the Horror Guru reviews the bloodiest, wildest and weirdest horror cinema has to offer.


  1. lol that picture

  2. No Romero?


    I am glad to see Carrie on there. It’s one of my favorite films, in general.

  3. Could you do a full review of Nightbreed please? I watched it and was a bit underwhelmed but I’m open to hear the opinion of someone who really liked it.

  4. I preferred Hostel 2, which I probably saw first actually.

    From Dusk Till Dawn just…never really did anything for me.

  5. Surprised Hellraiser didn’t make the cut.

  6. Snorgatch Pandalume

    Nice list. I’ve only seen about half of the movies on it, so I’ll make an effort to catch the others.
    Of course, the purpose of lists is to start arguments (how could you possibly include/omit X?), so I’ll just throw in my suggested additions: Psycho, The Exorcist, The Shining, Alien, Evil Dead 2, Re-animator, Night of the Living Dead, and Duel.
    Some people might argue that Duel is not a horror flick, but I would disagree. Despite the near total lack of blood, in Duel director Steven Spielberg creates an atmosphere of tension and fear that few gorefests can match, and IMO, the truck qualifies as one of the greatest movie monsters of all time.
    Not sure if Battle Royale qualifies as horror. It’s certainly brutal and disturbing, but it’s not especially scary, except in the philosophical sense (could this actually happen?).

  7. Thank you HG, and Jackula too, I like both of you guys. And gosh darn all of your friendly interactions.

    I am shocked about Nightbreed being on a list such as this.

  8. I was hoping for The Thing to be number 1, but it’s good to know Halloween was top dog.

  9. I wholeheartedly agree with the idea of Gojira being a horror movie. Honda drove through bombed out Hiroshima after WWII and was able to really convey that sense of devastation and human loss in the scenes of Tokyo after the Big G’s rampage in a way that no other giant monster movies of that era understood. The music playing during Godzilla’s attack is also pretty unsettling. Awesome movie, and an awesome list.

    Because of your differing views on horror, I now want to see some kind of crossover duel between you and Phelous. It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s fun to imagine.

  11. I’ve met Tony Todd… and I can tell you this, he’s a scary fucker irl as much as in his roles.

  12. Love the older video but jonesing for some new material man! You’re the only reason I still come to this website.

    Furgy Krueger

  13. I have seen Black Sunday, its so good….Barbara Steele is excellent! 😀

  14. WTF is this shit list? Seriously You have a comedy at #7 2 found footage films for an “ALL TIME” top ten horror movie list??? Seriously no Nightmare on Elm Street? Hellraiser? Candyman? Dead Alive aka Brain Dead??? I mean WTF you should be banned from making lists.
