Ghastly's Bloody Interviews

Horror Host of Many Talents – Halloween Jack

By Ghastly | January 21, 2022

The Haunted Cinema (THC) – Thanks for stopping by The Haunted Cinema for a chat. Ghastly and I have been dying (well technically Ghastly is already dead, but you get the point) to talk to you. Before we get into your Horror Hosting, it’s kind of a tradition around here to get to know our…

Searching the Stacks at The Haunted Library with Glenn Tolle

By Ghastly | January 11, 2022

The Haunted Cinema (THC) – When I told Ghastly that we were interviewing the Glenn Tolle, Head Librarian at The One Room Haunted Library, he was so excited I couldn’t get any work out of him (although now that I think about it, I rarely get any work out of him). Were books your gateway…

A Man of Many Talents – Nick Zaino; Author, Musician and so much more

By Ghastly | January 5, 2022

The Haunted Cinema (THC) – Ghastly and I are happy to welcome Nick Zaino to The Haunted Cinema. You are as close to a horror renaissance man that we have ever had.

Uncle Sam (1996)

By Grimmly | July 19, 2022

Directed by William Lustig (Maniac, Maniac Cop franchise) and written by Larry Cohen (It’s Alive franchise, God Told Me To), this odd slasher/zombie film arrived on July 4th, 1997, to the video market. Lustig and Cohen were the Director/Writer team that brought you Maniac Cop and this film seems to be a rehash of those…

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. It never got a sequel, and didn’t produce a fan-favorite villain, but it does include a lot of amazing,…

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.

Grimmly1a

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”.

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.
