Happy Horror New Year!


Happy New Year, one and all! May 2012 be full of horror for one and all (that's a nice thing to wish, right?).

Fingers crossed this will be an exciting and action-packed year for both horror and this blog. There should be some exciting things afoot, along with the odd interesting tidbits I stumble across.

I would like to give you all a big thank you for making it the most successful year for This Horror Is Your Face (mind you, it is also the first full year it has been going!). The last few months have been exciting with the blog gaining more and more readers every day. Thank you for reading, and please, join in. This is a place for horror and film fans. Opinions are always welcome!

To kick off a fresh new year, let me put to bed some bits from last year, namely the five most popular articles. 

5. Dear Victor, your Hellraiser film is a disgrace to cinema
I wasn't what you would call a 'fan' of Hellraiser: Revelations, and I had to be honest. Nothing personal, Victor, but what the fuck!?

4. Top 10 WTF?! Films
Some films are challenging, some are confusing, some are just out right out there. This is the top 10 list of the ones that will make you ask WTF?

3. Top 10 Criminally Overlooked Horror Films
A list of horror films you might never have seen, but should give a second look at. I'm not saying they're all classics, but they do deserve a second look in.

2. Cannibal Holocaust: The Grindhouse Edition Review
One of the most controversial films of all time with an in-depth analysis, plus a thorough look at the special features of the most definitive release of the classic to date. Not an article everyone will agree with, but a topic that will come up again and again in light of situations like the censoring of the Human Centipede 2.

1. Peter Jackson's BAD TASTE Made Good Taste
We are now officially on the run-up to the release of the first part of The Hobbit, and it seems a lot of people are looking back at where it all began with soon-to-be-legendary filmmaker Peter Jackson. Bad Taste is a crazy film, and the documentary Good Taste Made Bad Taste shows just how ingenious Jackson was in the making of a cult classic.

I hope you all enjoy a bit of a look back, just before we head forward! Have a horror new year!
