"There are still islands of greenery between the barren lava flows. In the warm moist climate of the late Cretaceous period, the vegetation has transformed" - Kenneth Branagh
About Scary Minds
G'day and welcome to ScaryMinds.com, horror's last colonial outpost on the net. Please note this site contains horror images, concepts, and content
that less well adjusted members of the community may found disturbing. So if you are a Kylie or Farnham fan then get the hell out right now! Be warned,
we enjoy going off the main pathway, and into those dark woods that are seldom traveled.
We aim to be the net's leading authority on the dark genre Down Under
For those who simply have to have their OS fix we do have a review section called "Ring-Ins" and a "Foreign Cousins" one. While we do cover foreign movies and the like in these sections, reviews tend to be "Downunder friendly", i.e on occasion you may need some sort of translation guide. If after a more generalised horror or movie site then check our links section "Linkenstein" to see some of the sites we regularly view and abuse. There's a whole section there dedicated to OS internet sites.
ScaryMinds has a strong committment to the discussion and promotion of local horror literature. we will regularly review novels, short story collections, etc, and interview the Writers working in horror in this region. Hey horror fans who can read this can't be a good sign friends and neighbours. If after something to read over the holidays then check out our "library of the damned". Where possible we have included links to source copies of the reviewed books.
Currently the site includes Reviews, Interviews, Box Office Results, and Essays on a variety of subjects pertinant to the Down
Under horror community. In the medium term we aim to introduce a members area, where you can comment on whatever strikes your fancy, a guest book for
visitors to abuse us in, and whatever else we can think of that wont be too taxing to our limited technical abilities. Long term we are developing our
own software to add all the features we would want in a site. Those will include a quiz module, an actual review module, blogs maybe, and if enough
people demand it even forums.
If you have any news, want a movie or book reviewed, or are looking to source that hard to get Downunder horror outing then use the contact form. We will answer any and all inquiries sent our way to the best of our abilities. Before asking for advice remember this is a regional horror site. If you want information about a Downunder non-horror book or movie, or want information on the latest movie out of Hollywood then you are asking the wrong people.
Check back regularly we have a strong work ethic, read we love us some horror, and will be updating most sections of the site on an ongoing basis as we drive toward a complete coverage of the dark genre in our region of the planet. Hey you can even bookmark us, which is kind of like telling your browser to "get in behind", so we will always be just a couple of clicks away. End of day hope you enjoy the site and you either found something to entertain or got some fresh insights into the Movie Makers and Writers living and working down here.
