Review Hub - Horror Films

With Halloween fast approaching, Trophy Unlocked thought it would be a good time to re-launch our Review Hub for the Horror films we've reviewed so far on the blog. Horror films were once considered the domain of Universal Studios, the people who brought us such classics like Dracula, Frankenstein and The Invisible Man to name, but a few. But Universal is by no means the only ones who see a market for these kind of movies.

Horror films like to play off the audiences primal fears and audiences seem to love being scared. The genre oft deals with macabre, supernatural, fantasy and thriller themes. We're going to throw in comedy, as many films, dating back to the "Abbott and Costello Meet ..." series  have mixed the two genres together.

Horror films know no boundaries, language or era. They've been with us since the earliest days of film-making and great horror films have been made in countries like Germany and Japan. Audiences, it seems, like to be frightened.

Some horror films are very scary, some are funny, while others simply gory and others merely stupid. And what was once scary 90 years ago, might not even raise an eyebrow now.

But whatever your choice we hope you'll take a look at Trophy Unlocked to help you make your choice. Here are the ones we've reviewed so far and we'll keep adding to the list as time goes by:
