Grimmly's Reel Reviews

Spookshow Sideshows – The Funhouse (1981)

By Karen Kohoutek | February 15, 2022

While not completely forgotten, The Funhouse has never quite gotten the attention of Tobe Hooper films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Poltergeist, often getting lumped in with serviceable ‘80s horrors of the Prom Night variety.

By Kevin Nickelson | December 22, 2021

By Kevin Nickelson For as long as I can remember, my passion for horror films has invaded every aspect of my life and has been known to overwhelm me at some of the oddest times of the year. Even more oddly is my disdain for patterns as to what I watch in the horror realm…

Midnight Mass – A Perfect Horror Series

By Grimmly | December 17, 2021

Midnight Mass is the third Mike Flanagan directed single season, episodic horror story for Netflix. The previous two included The Haunting of Bly Manor, and the amazing, The Haunting of Hill House. Midnight Mass departs from the ghost story themes of the first stories to delve into a more physical horror. Some will argue; however,…

About The Haunted Cinema

The Haunted Cinema started out as a hobby website to display vintage cinema posters, but has grown into a review and interview hub for enthusiasts of the Horror/Sci-fi movie genres. Our content is in the same vein as old-school horror host greats such as Elvira & The Ghoul.

Ghastly

Our Undead, rather, Head Usher. He keeps things running smoothly (mostly) in the cinema and makes sure that our guests are creepy and comfy.

Grimmly

Part Mad Scientist, part Mad Projectionist. He is responsible for the scares on the screen. He puts the “Haunted” in The Haunted Cinema.

Nosp

Nosferella

From dusk till dawn (she’s allergic to sunlight), she handles all of our patron’s snack needs at our candy counter. She’s always looking for someone to stop by for a “bite”.
