Why So Negative

I recently received an email from someone that told me to positively review all movies in order to entice others to purchase them. They said that after so many reviews, I should be raking in the money and should definitely be seeing four figure income streams at this point. Of course, I thought about it, and how it would be nice to make serious money with this site.

To be fair, I have written about making money with this site in the past. I have ads, I sell a few links here and there, and I try to work with anyone that needs a review. It’s about time I stepped in and spoke up about a few things so here I am on a soapbox for this site, in hopes that you’ll pay attention.

Screeners

I will review any screener sent to me, that I can play. If it plays on my dvd player or computer I will watch and review it. It does not mean that you will receive a positive review; it just means that you’ll get a fair shot. I have tried emailing the top studios, and the low level studios in regards to horror movies. If they don’t email me back, or if they don’t send anything to me, I can’t review them as a screener. Sorry.

Reviews in General

I review things I purchase, rent, and receive in the mail. I do not under any circumstances download or share any of the movies that I review on this website.

Advertisements

The advertisements that you see on this site, if you see any, are for the sole purpose of making money from your purchases. If you click a link, if you go to a site that I recommend I get a small cut and in in way force you to pay anything other than the price you’re already getting. If you shop at amazon, for instance, I do not get an additional amount for your purchase, you pay the regular price and amazon gives me a few pennies…literally….pennies.

Negative Reviews

Hey, I don’t like a lot of the movies I review. I’ve been watching horror since I was 8 years old. My parents were nice enough to introduce me to the genre when I was little and didn’t let me stop watching, even though they deemed some material insane for me. I never had nightmares, and I never cried. I still have an enthusiasm for good horror movies, they are just not always found. If you go through my blog here, you will find movies that I love and you see ones that I hate. Not every horror movie is good, and the over hyped ones are obvious. I’m not going to back down from my opinion to suit sales. I’m sorry.

If you want to support, visit the links, if not, fine. I just wanted to make it clear that this site is a personal passion, not a scheme. If you like horror, if you hate horror, enjoy.

Sir Jorge, at "Anal Base-POV Anal" and "Anal Base-Gaping Anal" you will find literally hundreds of movie clips and pictures of beautiful gorgeous sexy young girls being buggered senseless ! ! !. Could you make any money from telling people to visit those sites ?.

Jorge,
I am guilty of lurking, my friend, and for that I am sorry. All I can say is that your reviews are appreciated by me. I love horror films, but admittedly, I love campy, bad horror films. Bloodsucking Freaks bad.
By the same token, I love when I get a horror movie that is truly frightening, which is so rare for me now. I love when I find one of those late 60's, early 70's movies that is whispered about, where people aren't sure if the footage is real or not, where there are rumors of real satanic ceremonies, blood sacrifices, exploitation, whatever nefarious shenanigans you can imagine. Preferable one that was heavily cut before distribution, but finally released uncut after forgotton frames were restored.
Keep up the good work, and I will try and stop lurking and actually comment for once.

I totally agree with everything you said Ken, with just one minor reservation, make sure the supposedly classic horror film from the late 60`s or early 70`s (that you were talking about) isn't British, because if it is it will ALWAYS repeat ALWAYS be very disappointing, believe me.

Ken said...

Dont worry Jervaise, i would never waste my time watching any British made crap, everything you say about the (so-called) British film industry is completely true, it really is a ludicrous and laughable joke of the lowest order producing nothing but appalling unwatchable celluloid garbage. I watch horror movies from literally everywhere in the world, EXCEPT BRITAIN.

Well done Ken, i wish everyone was like us, then the British film industry would be out of business with-in a few months, and what an incredibly magical blessing that would be for world cinema, and indeed for the world in general ! ! !.

Ken said...

Indeed it would be a blessing Jervaise. By the way, thanks for telling me about "Anal Base-POV Anal" and "Anal Base-Gaping Anal", the gorgeous birds on those sites are truly amazing and the way those girls arse-holes gape wide open is absolutely superb, they`re probably the two best anal sites on the entire internet, once again thanks for telling me about them my old mate.

Thats OK Ken, theres nothing quite like seeing a gorgeous 18 year-old girls arse-hole gaping wide open, its ALWAYS a truly heavenly experience.

Hey there, I have been reading alot of these reviews lately and am a fan. You have been responsible for many an amazon purchase.

Anyway you said in this you would review any film sent to you or at least have a look. Here is a link to a Frankenstein-esque film I made for £500. I am currently remaking it for £20,000 - it played Tromadance, 2011 and did okay there.

Hope you enjoy the gore.

Jorge,
Just for the record, I only wrote my original post. I can only assume Jervaise created the "dialogue" between us to spam his porn.
I am here for the scary movies alone. Thank you.
