What is Horrorpedia?

The Horrorpedia website is a unique way of exploring the world of horror, sci-fi and fantasy culture via the internet. We post information-based entries related to all significant horror-themed culture — mostly movies because they are the obvious way that people experience horror — but also for horror culture in the wider sense, including:

What is there for visitors to this website?

We often use Wikipedia for the initial 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?

Yes, 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 and convenience amidst the internet information blitz.

Plus, 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 databased, so easy to use on a tablet or mobile device without searching and searching.

Anything else? I’m not convinced…

Horrorpedia includes a growing number of our own reviews, masses of amazing images, trailers and teasers, plus links to whole movies in the public domain. 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 day, sometimes several times a day. All previous entries on Horrorpedia are subject to continuous information updates – such as new reviews, digital downloads, DVD, Blu-ray and 4K release dates – and we love image updates.

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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.

      cheers,

      • 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.
