Top 5 Holiday Horror Films by Tyler Shainline
Trees, that shed their leaves months ago, reach their spindly fingers up into the cold winter night air, grasping at passing flakes until an entire blanket of snow covers the area. Other trees that were of a better class are cleaned up, brought into the warm indoors, and garnished with garish lights and ornaments crudely constructed by tiny wishful fingers. Lovers find each other behind locked doors in office buildings and will forever equate the scent of eggnog with a mistake made at a past office party. The influence of the holidays can reach out and touch almost anyone this time of year, even horror fans.
Not a year goes by that I don’t Irish up a cup of coffee, get all snuggly on the couch, and enjoy the Christmas staples; “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, “A Christmas Story”, the Rankin/Bass classics, and my personal favorite, “Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas”. But as the evenings grow longer and the nights get darker, the horror fan in me needs a little something more than even The Riverbottom Nightmare Band can deliver. So here’s a little X-Mas gift for you horror fans; the Top Five Holiday Horror films of all time!

|My Editors Note on Lloyd Kaufman...
||[Dec. 3rd, 2006|09:23 am]
Just my last words on the Kaufman deal, then we will move on...|
[Editor’s Note: We have supported Troma for free from day one at HorrorYearbook.com. I have personally handed out flyers (That I printed at my own cost) at various other events for the Poultrygeist movie, tried to help them get the movie shown at various theaters in San Francisco (Which they offered little or no help. My last E-mail about an interested theater has still not been returned at the time of this posting). I have also posted thier trailers and links to their website numorus times on our site, and our My Space page. They were even the only movie company with a banner on our ‘Friend’s of Horror Yearbook’ link page. I did these things because of my love of their movies and never needed anything in return. But one would believe that with all of Troma’s and Lloyd’s begging to ’support independent cinema’ they would be the first not to waste our time, a small, struggling website that makes little to no money.]
Read Mock Interview Here

Can I tell you something. If I as a writer for a website contacted an author or director and set up a phone interview, then didn't call or answer their call I would be deemed unprofessional. They would tell their friends and contacts not to deal with HorrorYearbook.com. So why should it be O.K. to do it to us? |
Lloyd Kaufman wasted my writer Molly Celaschi's time and money blowing her off not once but twice. Read all about here at HorrorYearbook.com and tell us we're just bitter.
|Two articles you may of missed at Horroryearbook.com
||[Dec. 1st, 2006|09:44 am]
Don't you love that our LJ is just a spam section for our website? But we do take the time to write original articles over at Horroryearbook.com and on our My Space Blog just too many damn things to update.|
The Other Side of Morning by Patrick Green
Well as close as we're going to get, anyway.
When I started HorrorYearbook.com I wanted to have a very diverse staff, from all different walks of life. Most horror websites are either guys with tattoos and lame facial hair, a bunch of nerds or some loser with long black hair and some dumb name like Mr. Darkness.
The horror genre is so much more than that.
The idea was to look at all sides of horror, the sleazy side, the fun side, the intellectual side. I wanted articles that ranged from Linnea Quigley's boobs to a "a feminist look at horror films" or something like that. So thank God we have Patrick Green to break up my drunken rants & temper-tantrums with some actual, real writing and interesting articles.
So I beg of you come on over and read The Other Side of Morning by Patrick Green and learn a little about the art of Seven then read the I Tried! I Lost! George Romero's 'Diary of the Dead' 1st Pictures by ME (WIL Keiper) and see what I'm talking about.
One is a well written article about art, one is a poorly written article with a picture of a zombie biting somebody's penis off.
Maniacal Motivation: Jason Voorhees by Chris Cooper
Orignally posted on HorrorYearbook.com.
I'm not lying when I say this. I have friends from all walks of life, Waiters, Lawyers, even a doctor of science but Chris Cooper may be my best friend for the longest. He's may not be the most desirable person in the world, but I've know him a long time and he's a dedicated friend. An ex-heroin addict, homeless, squater (and not those squaters with dogs and camping gear. This guy was really homeless), who I don't think ever brushes his teeth. He has been every where, even lived in a trailer park in Alabama and in my broke down van behind a Pizza Hut, but now he is sedated and tucked away in boring-ass Florida. So since he is a horror fan I asked him to write some stuff for me. I figured it would be a perspective not really seen on a horror website before and we would have everything covered at HorrorYearbook.com. Offering the most diverse staff on the net, we have a woman's perspective, a gay guy, a black guy, 2 whites guys and a certified, scumbag who has better grammar skills then me. Top that!
I don't expect him to write much but when he does, it sure will be fun and informative, trust me. So here is part of his 1st article. You can read the rest HERE
We all know (or at least should) that Pamela Voorhees sought vengence for her retarded son's death by punishing teenage fornicators and/or drug and alcohol users. And that when she died, Jason rose from the dead and killed her murderer. Now, with his mother avenged, why did/does Jason continue to kill anyone who tresspassed in the Camp Crystal Lake area?
Sure, that sounds like a stupid question.. but what's even more stupid is the common answer you would recieve, which is to punish teenager's illicit behaviour as did his mother.
However, Jason is not his mother, nor did he ever really know her after his childhood death drove her to insanity. Glimps of her final hours isn't going to teach one as mentally retarded as Jason his purpose in life.
I feel, Jason has proved to the observor that he kills indiscriminatly. f his victim is a teenager that happens to be drinking and is promiscous, it..s not even a coincedance, because guess what? that describes every single teenager in America. Not to mention that he does always try to kill the straight laced virgins as well.. they just run too fast. Jason has also killed many ..innocent people.., even some mothers....
Also feel free to talk about it over at our Message Boards

The first Dark Arts Books release is a compilation of 12 “new and used” horror stories by four Chicago authors: Jay Bonansinga, Bill Breedlove, John Everson, and Martin Mundt. This volume, featuring an introduction by another Chicago horror veteran, Mort Castle, was released at the World Horror Convention in San Francisco in May 2006.
“…And though each is a unique perspective and unique voice, they all have that “tongue in cheek” (not necessarily one’s own), satirical, never say ‘die’ when you can say ‘maim’ kind of thinking that we find in those works of horror likely to reside and resound within the reader’s consciousness for a long, long time.”
- From the Introduction, By Mort Castle
Includes 3 of John Everson’s stories, one previously unpublished and two
reprinted from his first Delirium Books collection, CAGE OF BONES & OTHER
