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…

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. You’re an author, musician, podcast host, and contributor to The Boston Globe. The best place to start is probably at the beginning. What…

Grimmly's Reel Reviews

Spookshow Sideshows – She Freak (1967)

By Karen Kohoutek | November 30, 2021

Spookshow Sideshows: She Freak (1967) In the heyday of amusement parks, the phenomenon spread from the coasts and throughout the country. In many landlocked areas, however, the attractions they offered were experienced in an inverted form. Instead of traveling to visit a place of pleasures, the experience could come to you, through the long-standing tradition…

Attack of the Cat People – Making a Classic Horror Film Today

By Grimmly | November 12, 2021

We love classic horror and sci-fi films here at The Haunted Cinema. Monster films from the 1950’s like The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Monster on the Campus, and I was a Teenage Frankenstein are some examples of the movies we enjoy. These films and others like them from the era were mostly, low budget,…

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

By Karen Kohoutek | 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…

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.
