Exactly one year ago today I wrote my first ever entry for Rhino’s Horror, and now, 355 posts later, my blog is officially 1-year-old! I thank each and every one of you for stopping by every day and sharing the same passion as me with your love of all things horror. I went through and picked out a handful of my favorite articles that I’ve written over the course of my first year for the readers who have been here since the beginning to revisit along with me, as well as for the newcomers to enjoy for the first time.
Thanks for such a great year. It means the world.
We all have a fear of something. For some people it may be the fear of the dark or heights, for me however, I’m terrified of sharks. I owe that fear to none other than Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Jaws. In this post, I wrote about one of my favorite horror films, Jaws, and of course… my fear of sharks.
This next post is an amazing time-lapse video of Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window. In it, Jeff Desom created a truly remarkable look at the film with a panoramic view of the entire backyard. It’s one of my favorite videos ever and one that I revisit regularly. So if you happened to have missed it, give it a look.
Many horror films out there are considered to be cursed due to unfortunate circumstances that may have happened on or off set to the people who were working of the film. Probably the most infamous movie curse belongs to the Steven Spielberg written and Tobe Hooper directed Poltergeist. Whether you believe in curses or not, this is a fascinating story that revolves around the actors and the mysteries that surrounded them while shooting the film.
Whenever a movie uses “Based on a True Story” as part of their marketing ploy, it perks up a few ears. And rightly so; what is more terrifying than a horror story that is actually based on some truth? When ‘The Possession’ started it’s marketing strategy, they played heavily on the idea of it being “based on a true story” so I decided to take a look at just what “true story” actually meant.
While there are certainly many ways to destroy someone’s childhood, not many of them are as colorful and ridiculous as what Dominic Deville’s “Evil Clown” service offers. I loved this story and it is easily one of my favorites because it is exactly what nightmares are made of.
Thanks again guys for making my first year a great one!
