More often than not, horror films are filled with decapitations, amputations, disembowelment, and more. Particularly with the introduction of the ‘torture porn’ subgenre, we are seeing more and more violence and excess in horror cinema. Sometimes it’s effective. Sometimes, watching the film’s cast of characters endure the kind of violence we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy is a turn off to audiences.

Truth, Justice, The American Way… and turning on your friends! That, apparently, is what all good heroes are up to from time to time.

Jason Voorhees has been laying dormant for a while, and we think it’s high time he took a stab (pun intended) at a new set of slaying circumstances.

We're taking at look at some of our favorite horror comic crossovers. Some are awesome, some are… not so awesome, and some are just plain weird, but we love them all!

Sure, every comic villain has delusions of grandeur, or a god-complex (some more than others, looking at you, Thanos), or a raging vendetta they need to exact upon an unsuspecting hero. But here at FEARnet we've got a laundry list of our favorite, most disturbed, weird, and demented villains. And yes, yes, yes, the Joker's the most disturbed, etc. Let's just get him out of the way in the intro! We're on to bigger, better, weirder, and more evil things!
