‘Indescribable… Indestructible! Nothing can stop it!’
MOVIES & MANIA is the handy online way of exploring the world of horror, thrillers, sci-fi and fantasy culture. No other website covers as many new releases as well as so many classic and obscure films. We are passionate, relentless, and aim to be as methodical as we can be.
Aside from movies, we have also posted entertainment and information-based entries relating to:
- Adverts and advertising
- Artists, illustrators, and painters
- Comic books
- Computer games
- Folklore and mythology
- Food and drink
- Radio shows
- Short stories
- SFX and makeup artists
- Toys, games, and novelties
- TV series
- Video and computer games
- Writers and authors
Surely I can look things up on the web myself?
You obviously can. However, the advantage of MOVIES & MANIA is that there is lots of information, a range of aggregated review quotes and links to full reviews, trailers and teasers, and masses and masses of fantastic images relating to horror, sci-fi, and cult movies all in one convenient location.
The site offers clear and uncluttered layout (important, as more and more of us now choose to access the web via their mobile phone or a tablet device) and offers convenience amidst the internet information blitz.
The vast number of entries and links means that you can find out about lots more cult movie culture in a few easy clicks. We’ve done lots of the work for you which makes searching easier.
MOVIES & MANIA includes a growing number of our own reviews, masses and masses of images, trailers and teasers, plus links to a growing number of movies that can be watched free online (currently over 650).
Links to aggregated reviews of films, DVD, and Blu-ray releases from the world’s most informed reviewers (whether they be from internationally recognised publications such as Variety or from savvy fans who run their own blogs) are also included for each movie posting and we constantly update and add more links.
Thus, for example, if you want to look up whether Pet Sematary (2019) is worth watching at a movie house or wait till it receives a home video release, we have aggregated over 30 review quotes/links that represent a wide range of opinions. In this case, reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Not all entries have multiple review quotes/links but more and more are being added daily, for movies from both the present and the past (especially important as Blu-ray and 4K reissues now offer the best way to enjoy dark fantasy films that were often only previously available in inferior quality VHS or DVD versions).
How often is the site updated?
New entries and updates are usually added every single day, often several times per day. All previous entries on MOVIES & MANIA are subject to continuous information updates – such as newly written and YouTube reviews, and information on digital downloads, DVD, Blu-ray and 4K release dates.
How can I interact with the site to make it even better?
The easiest way is to make a comment on any post or page. You can remain anonymous if you wish. Obviously, all comments are moderated to avoid abusive or offensive remarks and spam.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have something you’d like reviewed/profiled. That said, we are currently unable to review any short films – because there are still 1000s of features we still need to cover – or promote crowdfunding projects. Hopefully, in future, when time permits we can begin to cover these again.

NB. Unlike some other leading horror sites, we don’t accept product-placement articles, especially those paid for by cigarette manufacturers or gambling companies. This is underhanded exploitation that is widely rejected by most serious websites. Real-life is horror enough without cancer or gambling addiction.
16.6+ million website hits
Hey! Wasn’t this website called something else before? Horror… pedia?
Indeed it was but everything changes and we felt that having the word ‘horror’ in our name was simply too restrictive. We had already started to cover a wider range of genres anyway and didn’t want to confuse people. So, we went for MOVIES (cos we love movies) and MANIA to cover anything and everything else that we’re passionate about. With no announcement, no fuss and no fanfare, we suddenly changed the URL on July 17th 2019. No looking back. Just moving forward!
