Why So NegativeI 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.
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.
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.
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.
