By pwsadmin | November 19, 2021

As collectors ourselves, Ghastly and I always like to see other people’s collections and how they display them.

We love to see great…

Grimmly's Reel Reviews

By pwsadmin | November 12, 2021

We love classic horror and sci-fi films here at The Haunted Cinema.

Spookshow Sideshows: The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)

By pwsadmin | October 24, 2021

Many films that deal with carnivals and amusement parks—which have the word “amusement” right there in the name—will eventually run into the Paradox of Hedonism, the idea that the pursuit of pleasure is ultimately counterproductive, leading to less enjoyment than is found in more selfless or productive activities, and even a sense of emptiness. This…

Ghastly and I love Horror Anthologies. Any typical Halloween season will see us watching any number of them in The Haunted Cinema, however, just like any movie or anthology, some are great, and some are not so great. That can also be said of Horror-Comedies, when they work, they are amazing. Films like Abbot and…

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.

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



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



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”.

The Gallery

The Haunted Cinema is more than just movies. We also have a wonderful and spooky collection of posters, sculptures, masks, and more. We are passionate about the genre in all its forms and want to share that love with you. Check back often as there is always something new to see.
