31 Days, 31 Links - Day #11

There's a heck of a lot of horror blogs out there and very few of them stand out from the pack. While most focus on reviews of the same movies every other horror blogger out there is reviewing and talk about the same topics every other horror blogger out there is talking about, there are a few exceptions and one consistently unique and entertaining blog has always stood out the most for me....

KINDERTRAUMA


"YOUR HAPPY CHILDHOOD ENDS HERE", exclaims the banner you see when you first enter the site. This banner, surrounded on both sides by the creepy smiling face of a clown with the site name printed out letter by letter on the wooden blocks you played with as a kid, pretty much sums up the aim of Kindertrauma. As the site's manifesto states, "KINDERTRAUMA is about the movies, books, and toys that scared you when you were a kid. It’s also about kids in scary movies, both as heroes and villains. And everything else that’s traumatic to a tyke! Through reviews, stories, artwork, and testimonials, we mean to remind you of all the things you once tried so hard to forget...". Hosts Uncle Lancifer and Aunt John not only bring the goods themselves but they also have a great recurring feature on the site called 'Traumafessions', where readers write up little pieces on the things that scared them as youngsters. But enough talking from me, go check out the site and relive all those horrible nightmares from your childhood!

I just visited Kindertrauma and went straight to the poltergeist 3 section (well i would wouldn`t i). It was great to see some new pictures of heather and her co-stars on the set that i hadn`t seen before, looking at those pictures is always such a strange and surreal experience, its like its june of `87 all over again and she`s still alive.

Kindertrauma never fails to amuse ...love those scalawags (Aunt John and Uncle Lancifer ). They always make me smile when the trot out another thing that ruined someone's childhood.

I just started checking out Kndertrauma recently, and it is one of the most original horror sites I have seen around. Very cool pick!
