WRITE FOR US

Thanks for your interest in writing for Nightmare on Film Street! Please note, though we do consider each and every application, due to the volume of applications we receive, we are not able to respond to each individual applicant. We invite previous applicants to re-apply using updated writing samples once per calendar month. Nightmare on Film Street is Horror for the Casually Obsessed; a place of genre/horror film celebration and appreciation. Cultured Vultures is a pop culture website established in 2013 covering all things gaming, movies, and more. Plus, any other article types or ideas that you may want to contribute.

Ideally we could go back and forth with some ideas, but generally open to whatever you might want to contribute. When you introduce yourself, please briefly explain to us why you would like to be involved, and what you think you’d bring to the team. We’d also like to see a 500-word writing sample, and/or links to your other published or personal work. If we like what we see, we will bring you onboard, introduce you to the team, and provide you with the general house rules.

Keep your writing clear and easy to understand. Don’t use too much technical filmmaking jargon, and make your language crisp and accessible. When you name characters in your plot summary, list the actors’ names directly afterward in parenthesis.

News Writer – Covering the latest news, articles, features and trailer for the site. We can offer preview screenings (London & Glasgow), interviews, film events and festivals. Most of all, we will let you unleash your creative side. Structure is very important; try categorizing the different parts of the film and commenting on each of those individually. Deciding how good each thing is will help you come to a more accurate conclusion.

General film articles and current movie reviews. Occasionally we will ask for submissions on specific topics. If you are up for a fun challenge and want to be part of a constantly evolving project, then let us know.

 

We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.

Many communities within the world of the internet cater to specific interests, from movies to music, games to sports, and much more. Cultural analysis is preferred over devotional or first-person stories (unless you’re reviewing an event like a film festival). An article is not a review but uses film as a jumping off point to talk about something related. Check out a piece on Terrence Malick or immigration in District 9 or the theology of The Shack. A feel for what you’d like to contribute to NOFS – whether it be List posts, a monthly column on Cyclopses, Release Reviews, Anniversary Retrospectives, a One-off pitch, etc.

Give the review some closure, usually by trying back to your opening fact or thesis. Does the film seem to have a message, or does it attempt to elicit a specific response or emotion from the audience? You could discuss whether or not it achieves its own goals. The article must be lie between 250 to 1000 words and it would be free from copyright infringement. It would be great to connect with you through your unique article. Your name will appear as an Author, hence we’ll also need a short author bio of 50 words.

Submissions for one of our blog sections should range between 400 and 800 words, while Complete Movie Review or Movie Explaination generally starts at around 1000 words. For original reporting in particular, we recommend first pitching ideas to the editor. FilmSpell is a diverse and bottomless well of information about movies. If you care about an issue, chances are someone else does, too. Short reviews but very concise and innovative writings. High on Films’ selling point is content and nothing else, a backlink on HOF is going to bring quality traffic to your own website.

For example, things like acting, special effects, cinematography, think about how good each of those are. This answer was written by one of our trained team of researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness. Does the film reflect on a current event or contemporary issue? It could be the director’s way of engaging in a bigger conversation.
