what we’re looking for
Nightmare on Film Street is Horror for the Casually Obsessed; a place of genre/horror film celebration and appreciation. We’re looking for enthusiastic voices, those who are eager to contribute their perspectives in a fun, upbeat, and unique way. Those who don’t take film criticism too seriously. We’re looking for weirdos. For outcasts. For champions of the B-movie and the Scream copycat. We want your silly takes, your humorous musings, and for you to sound like you when you gush about the genre that you love. We want to ooze positivity and enthusiasm to newcomers, those who are first dipping their toes into the horror space, and those that want to expand their horizons and horror knowledge without being overwhelmed by academia, elitism, or claustrophobic takes. (not that those are a bad thing, they’re just not NOFS)
We want the strangest recommendation lists you can conjure, a recurring column that only you could write, fresh-take retrospectives that will leave fans desperately clicking for more. We want your joy, your appreciation, and your undying love of this genre.
Those are the voices that make up Nightmare on Film Street.
Nightmare on Film Street is a hub for horror addicts, enthusiasts, and casual creeps. We’re inclusive of all humans, monsters, and sub-genres.
