I figured you might be tired of reading overblown appraisals of the significance of a website, so here's something you might enjoy.
A Lifetime In Dark Rooms is to horror films what Trial By Ordeal is, in some ways, to metal. Handled solely by Cliff Evans, the blog contains some of the best reviews/analyses of horror films that I've ever seen. With a keen understanding of film-making's elements as well as an intuitive grasp of what makes a truly great horror film, he dissects horror films in an unapologetically academic manner, treating them as art first, films second, and "horror" and the grab-bag of stereotypes the word invokes last. His writing is intelligent and analytical but eminently readable, and of five or so films he's recommended that I've managed to check out so far, every one was excellent and unique. In another parallel to Trial By Ordeal, though, he doesn't let the academic tone of his work prevent him from analyzing work typically dismissed as prurient or exploitative: check out his brilliantly lucid two-part analysis of "A Serbian Film" for a firsthand example.
If you're into horror or intelligent analysis of film in general, you owe it to yourself to check this out. My only complaints are his somewhat erratic update schedule and perhaps consciously restricted article length- frankly, at the end of just about any of his reviews, I want to hear more about his interpretation of symbolism, cinematography, and atmosphere.
And though it's mentioned infrequently, he's a metalhead, too.
