Mission Statement

Culture Crypt is dedicated to bringing thoughtful and unbiased viewpoints to all of its media reviews and articles.  While major studio releases are covered, Culture Crypt concentrates on independent genre films.

Not limited strictly to horror or to films, Culture Crypt also offers episode guides and reviews of television shows along with photo galleries of notable filming locations and events.  The focus is primarily on genre entertainment, but Culture Crypt also aims to provide noteworthy items on other areas of popular culture appealing to an audience with similar interests.
