Website & Team
Horror on Screen is born on November 2012, from a frustration of mine not to be able to rate, comment and discuss about the horror movies I just watched.
Ok, there is IMBD and Rotten Tomatoes for rating and commenting, but they are not horror specialized and overcrowded. Other horror-related websites are usually very good, but they offer a poor interactive experience.
So I decided to create this website, which does not intend to concurrence the big websites (best-horror-movies.com, horror-movies.ca, fangoria, bloody-disgusting.com, etc) but intends to offer a different experience. Horror on Screen aims at being some sort of a “Facebook of horror”, a place where users can truly interact with the content by voting for films, building their horror profile, check out statistics and getting ranked amongst each others.
For this reason, I invite you to register if you haven’t done so yet, and visit the review list to start rating the movies that you’ve seem. Don’t forget to comment too, whenever you feel like it. Horror on Screen is meant to be an interactive experience, so please, go ahead and share your thoughts, whether it serious or funny, one word or 20 lines!
This website will start with a basis of 50 reviews, to which some reviews will be added weekly (probably 5-10 per weeks). Reviews are written by either me (Raoul), Eloise or Dylan. The rating is given by the reviewer and do not represent the overall team opinion (which you will usually find in the comments if we disagree with each others, ahah).
I also intend to publish some miscellaneous posts about whatever comes to my mind, but this is not the first objective of this website.
The huge team of Horror on Screen is made of:
RAOUL aka Admin (Creator of Horror-on-Screen)
I’m 30, French. I have been into horror/fantastic and science fiction since ever, but only started to get heavily into the horror genre since 5-6 years ago. I have seen around 800 horror films so far. Not a writer or into the film-business at all, I am instead a scientist in real-life, and maybe I can use some of that to bring a scientific point of view to the horror world.
