    By Heather Keane

    6 of the best Irish myths and legends

    Irish folklore goes deep when it comes to weird creatures, spooky old women and epic tales of magic and wizardry. Leprechauns barely scratch the surface, and you’re more likely to bag yourself a horrific generation-spanning curse than a pot of gold when dealing with legendary Irish figures. Here are some of the best myths, legends and folklore from the home of Halloween, along with where you might spot them in contemporary fantasy and horror.

    Books that horror film fans will love

    Books that horror film fans will love

    Take a walk down a scary path into the woods. It’s getting darker. The shadows seem to move, take shape, become almost human. You hear a noise and you run. Is that a cabin up ahead? You hear a howl, something moves at the edges of your perception and the dead start to rise. You’re in a book, or a film, or maybe both…

    Friday Favourites: painfully cool vampire films

    In Season 3, Episode 13 of The Greatest Show of All Time Xander Harris voices a time old lament: ‘It’s just that it’s buggin’ me, this ‘cool’ thing. I mean, what is it? How do you get it? Who doesn’t have it? And who decides who doesn’t have it? What is the essence of cool?’. Well Xander, your best friend is in love with one and you’re on a show about them. It’s vampires.

    How to Write a Point Horror Novel in Ten Easy Steps

    I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic for my youth recently.  Perhaps it’s the fact nineties fashion is back with a vengeance (yes, I wore those slip dresses and tattoo chokers first time around, thank you very much). Or maybe it’s the endless Buffy re-runs I’ve been treating myself to.  Chiefly though, I think it was the discovery of some old Point Horrors on a dusty shelf at my parents’ house.

    Ah, Point Horror – my sole means of entertainment in the early nineties.

    A Connoisseur’s Guide to Modern Creature Features

    By Karen Munro

    A Connoisseur’s Guide to Modern Creature Features

    Some of the scariest horror out there is ambiguous and subtle, creeping you out with lingering unanswered questions. And then there are what we might call creature features – gloriously gross, sensationally shabby, no-holds-barred celebrations of (wo)man vs. nature. But today’s creature features can have finesse too.  It just takes a little time and patience to search out the really good ones from the wonderful mess of low-budget space aliens and post-atomic giant termites (and tornado-borne sharks) crowding your Netflix queue.
