Old Websites You Miss
A lot of us have been using the internet for a while. My family first got it in the mid 90's.

It got me thinking about old websites that are no longer available.

What are some of your favorites that you miss?

And I miss the old Joblo before it became littered with ads every 5 centimeters.

Well before l joined this forum l used to be on another one

It was called Cinemablend and it had so much going for it and the volume of different areas not just about movies was so interesting
I met quite a few people there good and bad
I was there for over two yrs which was remarkable but the only problem there was that the place was so close nit and if you were not one of the clan you were excluded
But here it is good because people are welcome and it makes it inviting to stay and post
Cinemablend decided to close its doors earlier this year because members were not posting

Waaaaay back there was a website called where users could sign up and give mini-reviews of horror movies. It was really cool because it wasn't about long, drawn-out essays, but just folks getting in their two cents. It was by horror fans, for horror fans, then it just disappeared. Too bad.

I agree with this. Not for the ads, but because back during my "lurking" days, there were a lot of Schmoes who had once posted frequently that seemed pretty cool, but alas, are here no more. It's my own fault for not having posted earlier, though. :o

^^This. I also used to go to an old Horror Review site called The Flesh Farm when I was maybe 12. There wasn't much to do but read reviews this dude called "JP Butcher" wrote up, but I remember having a lot of fun reading his 2 cents. Then one day, it just stopped getting updated.

There used to be a site called

It was a site based off my home town of Peterborough and essentially how its a town of drunks cause there is little else to do at night be party or goto a bar.

So essentailly this site was submitted stories and pics of ppl who had gotten way to drunk and ended up doing something that was pic worthy i guesss. There were pics of ppl passed out on park benches (one was of a chick who had nothing but panties on!) or shots of how dishevelled ppl can get at parties when they truely stop caring.

Was a funny site for a while but it got taken down a couple of years ago now, i think. Not surprising though as any time i ever found myself back on that site there were always old pics that suddenly had the ppls faces blurred, lol.

The old Arrow in the Head. No staff. No news (that I can get from five other sites). Just a couple of reviews every week written by Mr. Fallon. And he didn't limit himself to new releases.

Just revisited AITH. I must retract one of my complaints. It seems that he has gone back to reviewing older films. I loved the review of Night of the Lepus. That's my kind of flick!

Scott Renshaw was an internet critic I always use to enjoy reading. Don't know what happened to him.
