JULIA'S TOP 5: a video made especially for the blog

This was made especially for me and the blog by a young woman named Julia (Jvideostyle1 of you tube) and lists her top 5 horror movies. As you can see the majority of these were made after my specialist era mentioned in the about me part, meaning no reviews (sorry!). Once again thanks to Julia for the fantastic video and i hope you all enjoy!


KILLER KIDS!!!: why do we find evil children so terrifying?

Village of the Damned (1960), The Exorcist (1973) and The Omen (1976). What do all these movies have in common? For a start they all achieved success at the box office and are all considered classics of the horror genre. What else do they have in common? At the centre of each of these films is a child that is, or has become, evil. Why do evil children fascinate and terrify us? At a young age I can relate to these characters more than an adult fan. But they still scare the hell out of me.

Why can children be so frightening?: the Innocents 1961

A TRIBUTE TO DR TERROR: the BBC's own horror host

Although it may seem unusual, the BBC did at one time have its own horror host, Dr Terror (pictured below). This delightful chap was the host of many a classic horror film in the mid 90’s but sadly has not been seen since then and remains mostly forgotten. If you are one of those people who has forgotten or indeed has never heard of the good doctor, come with me on journey to the latest late night schedules of years ago and discover some more about “Dr Terror”.

Brides of Blood 1968

Here it is Young Bloods first ever review! You might be asking yourself “why then didn’t he pick something a bit more classy?” The reason is simple. That is what every other blog would have done, we are different. I want to give a young person’s view on classic horror movies but not just the best, on the obscure as well. I could have started with a review of a great like Quatermass and the Pit (1967 and a personal favourite) or Slasher genre starter Halloween (1978), but I decided to start with a film that I thought need more attention, just like the youths opinion (sounds sad I know, since there are few young classic horror fans to give an opinion!).
