A Special Halloween Top 5: Spirits, Ghosts, and Dead People – With Luminous Mongoose

Luminous Mongoose has had a busy month organising a number of collaborative top 5 lists for the spooky season.

Tuesday’s Top 5: 90’s Horror Movies for Halloween Binge Watching

Tuesday's Top 5

Now we come to the final Halloween top 5 post and while I'd love to do another anime binge list, there just aren't enough new horror anime to really justify it this year.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Horror Anime Released in the Last 5 Years

Tuesday's Top 5

It is seriously hard to find a good horror anime and that isn't surprising given how few are released in general (when compared with the plethora of isekai stories or cute girls doing whatever anime). But it does make it hard to do a Halloween anime list each year when very little has changed. So … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Horror Anime Released in the Last 5 Years

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime With Blood and Gore

Yes, we have more Halloween list fun this week as I count down my five favourite anime that have a lot of blood and/or gore.

Tuesday’s Top 5: B Grade Horror Movies

Continuing on with the Halloween theme for the month and today I'm counting down something that has nothing to do with anime and everything to do with a deep love of terrible horror movies.

Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Moments That Make Me Flinch

Tuesday's Top 5

So Halloween today and this year I have put together a top 5 list of anime moments that make me flinch. I am not a squeamish person by nature and when it is happening in anime, I'm even less likely to flinch because anime characters don't look like real people, and yet there are some … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Anime Moments That Make Me Flinch

Friday’s Feature: Facing Fear – The Unseen Is Always Scarier

Welcome to the last feature in October and the last horror focused feature for awhile.

In Case You Missed It

Well, another week and another round of blog posts that have caught my interest. This week has seen me really struggling to find my routine again after the mayhem of the past few weeks but it's been great to be forced out of my comfort zone briefly (and out of the house for purposes other … Continue reading In Case You Missed It

Okay, I know Halloween was yesterday and I know it is mostly ignored in Australia as a day in general, however I just felt that this list was needed. So what criteria did I use to determine what I should be watching on Halloween?
