NightmareFeed: Horror News and Entertainment

Joseph Kernozek

(He/Him) I previously ran a small publishing company, ARTPOST magazine, that published a wide range of fiction from horror to mystery to the whimsical and everything in between as well as artwork, photography and poetry. I’ve run several review websites including DailyReview. I am also Twitch affiliate under the name ko_zenker and stream retro classics from the golden age of video games. My first brush with the horror genre was through literature and started with R.L, Stine’s Fear Street series and then progressed to Bram Stoker’s Dracula and the novel that introduced me to my new love…Stephen King’s Cujo. After that it was all Stephen King, all the time for the next few years for me. My favorite novel of his being Needful Things with Misery being a close second. When it comes to horror films my first real experience with the genre was when, as a kid, I found a VHS tape in our house simply labeled “Psycho Cop” which I watched and then re-watched dozens of times. Only a few years later, after watching more horror, did I realize this movie wasn’t the defining standard of the genre and was, actually, not well regarded at all. Since then my tastes have evolved and below you will find the list of top five horror movies. My All Time Top Horror Movies are: 1. Dracula (1931) 2. A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) 3. The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988) 4. The Blair Witch Project (1999) 5. Misery (1990) This list was very tricky for me to put together and when doing so I actually composed a list of my top 50 horror movies to make sure I was considering all possibilities. I suspect that if you asked me last week or next week this list may look different with the exception of Dracula, this will always be my number one.
