The Union of Independent Horror Bloggers


Inspired by THIS POST by B-Sol, as well as THIS POST at Zombo's Closet of Horrors, I have decided it's time to create The Union of Independent Horror Bloggers.

Want to join?  It's simple, there are no fees, and no salesman will call - but there are some rules:

BY POSTING THE UIHB LOGO SOMEWHERE ON YOUR BLOG YOU AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
  • You Will Never Agree to Post a Positive Review of a Film, or a Television Program, Solely Because you received a Screener / Advanced Copy or Passes to see a Screening of Said Film or Television Program.
  • You Will Not Post a Positive Review of a Book, Solely Because You Received an Advanced Review Copy of Said Book.
  • You Will Not Post a Positive Review of a Piece of Pre Recorded Music, Solely Because you Received a Free Copy/Listening Copy of Said Piece of Pre Recorded Music.
  • You Will Not Post a Positive Review of a Movie, Stage Play, Book, or Piece of Pre Recorded Music Based Solely on The Fact that Said Movie, Stage Play, Book or Piece of Pre Recorded Music was Created by a Friend/Relative/Husband/Wife/Partner/ or Someone You Are Generally Infatuated With.
  • You Will Not Accept One Thin Dime To Post a Positive Review - Ever!
Them's the rules, kids - and while we can't offer health insurance yet, being a member of the UIHB will let the world know that you can't be bought!  Remember, In Union There Is Strength!

I'm in as well! I've had my screeners dwindle into nothingness due to my honest reviews.

Proud to put this on my site.

Pax, I see you as Sly Stallone in F.I.S.T., and yes, feel free to riff on that title at will...

Matt-suzaka said...

I thought I left a comment already?! I probably didn't do it right, which happens when you're dumb.

I have the badge displayed proudly at the bottom of my page! I couldn't put it on my sidebar because it would've looked shitty all shrunken down, but it's there!

Prospero said...

Just added the the badge to my blog.

Elwood Jones said...

Finally someone has decided to make a stand. I'm so with you hombre!!

Carl (ILHM) said...

That being said, joining doesnt prevent us from posting a positive review of films we do receive a screener or advanced copy of if it is, in fact good, right? =D

Im all in, integrity > all!!1

Pax Romano said...

Carl, of course!

C.L. Hadden said...

I totally meant to do this before and forgot, but I totally agree. I will put the badge on my blog pronto.

"THAT" Girl said...

Theron Neel is a one man horror show. He is a chronic liar, manipulator, cheater, has abused his pet dog, cheated on his wife for the entire duration of their marriage, and is guilty of plagiarism. He emotionally preys on women he meets online and was e-friends with a 14 year old girl that included emails, texts, and exchanging pictures. Would you want a middle aged man having an "online friendship" with your younger sister or daughter? He lies about his marital status and availability and convinces them that he has genuine interest and feelings for them in an effort to gain favors. He creates an image of being a supporter of women in arts when in truth he treats many women like trash. http://theronsweboflies.wordpress.com/
