Visual Aesthetics – 10
Dollar Bin Horror’s look is perfect for the theme. The background is black, splattered with splotches of red. The header is customized – a mixture of gore and a dollar bill. The font is in bright red as well, blending well with the rest of the blog’s looks. You will not find a lack for images all throughout the blog. In fact, they serve to whet your appetite for more gory stuff.
User Friendliness – 8
There are no problems regarding load time when you browse through the pages of Dollar Bin Horror. I do have two points to bring up, though. One, the shade of red used for the font makes it a bit hard on the eyes. Maybe a darker and bolder red might be better. Then again, it could just be my eyes! Two, the archives and categories sections could be placed in a more accessible location. The blog has a lot of content and one will have to scroll down a lot to find these two navigational tools.

If you’re into horror flicks and stories, then Dollar Bin Horror will provide you with all the enjoyment that you crave. Rhonny writes in a very conversational manner, making you feel as if you were talking to a friend who just watched or read the story. I am not into horror, but reading her posts kinda got me interested.
