HORRORPEDIA is a unique way of exploring the world of horror, sci-fi and fantasy culture via the internet.

We post entertainment and information-based entries related to all significant horror-themed culture — mostly movies because they are the obvious way that people experience horror — and also for horror culture in the widest sense, including:

What is there for visitors?

We sometimes use Wikipedia for the initial basis of the information for our entries (available for all to share and remix under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License), hence the name HORRORPEDIA. Then we add lots more additional information, masses of images, links to reviews online and from books and printed media, plus a growing number of our own HORRORPEDIA reviews and comments.

Surely I can look things up on the web myself?

You can, but the advantage of HORRORPEDIA is that there is lots of information, a range of reviews, trailers, and teasers, and masses and masses of fantastic images all in one convenient location, with relevant review links provided without you having to search further. The site offers clear and uncluttered layout (important, as more and more people access the web via their mobile or tablet) and offers convenience amidst the internet information blitz. In fact, the clarity of HORRORPEDIA is why Google has chosen to develop a singular project to present the site to a wider audience.

The vast number of entries and links means that you can find out about lots more horror culture in a few easy clicks. We’ve done lots of the work for you and it’s all on a massive database.

Anything else? 

HORRORPEDIA includes a growing number of our own reviews, masses and masses of images, trailers and teasers, plus links to a growing number of movies that can be watched free online. Links to selected reviews of films, DVD, and Blu-ray Disc releases from the world’s most informed reviewers (whether they be from internationally recognised publications such as Variety or from savvy fans who run their own blogs) are also included for each movie posting and we constantly update and add more links.

How often is the site updated?

New entries and updates are usually added every single day, often several times per day. All previous entries on HORRORPEDIA are subject to continuous information updates – such as new reviews, and information on digital downloads, DVD, Blu-ray and 4K release dates.

How can I interact with the site to make it even better?

The easiest way is to make a comment on any post or page. You can remain anonymous, if you wish. Obviously, all comments are moderated to avoid abusive or offensive remarks.

  1. Hi Mondozilla,

    My name is Anuj Agarwal. I’m Founder of Feedspot.

    I would like to personally congratulate you as your blog Horrorpedia has been selected by our panelist as one of the Top 50 Horror Movie Blogs on the web.


    I personally give you a high-five and want to thank you for your contribution to this world. This is the most comprehensive list of Top 50 Horror Movie Blogs on the internet and I’m honored to have you as part of this!

  2. Hi Anonymous,

    Thanks for your positive feedback.

    We’re an information site and so include links to buy DVDs from Amazon affiliates only. If you’re looking for particular hard-to-get movies I’d suggest you try eBay or Amazon resellers, for sold out discs.



  3. I love your site. Being a published horror writer, I would like to contribute articles to your site on all aspects of the genre. How do I do this, and am I permitted to include the url of my website in my posts?


  4. I think your website is fantastic and a wonderful resource for all Horror fans. I also admire all the work that is done by your team of dedicated enthusiasts. Carry on the good work and my mouse is always just a click away.

    P.S. if it is okay with you and yours I would like to save a Horrorpedia link to my diary to co-inside with the films I have watched and remembered.

    Many thanks for the excellent website.

    Rob Holmes


    • Hi Rob,

      Many thanks for your positive words and support. Please feel free to add any links you wish to Horrorpedia!




      • G’day mondozilla, how are you? New to the site, and I think it’s great. I have a question for you. Do you carry/sell DVD’s? I don’t seem to see any mention about it. If you don’t, you should. lol. I find that a lot of these type of movies are rather hard to find.
