    Books that horror film fans will love

    By Ian Simpson

    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… MORE

    Friday Favourites: painfully cool vampire films

    By Fleur Clarke

    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. MORE

    How to Write a Point Horror Novel in Ten Easy Steps

    By Cynthia Murphy

    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. MORE

    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.

    8 novels that’ll truly horrify you

    By Alan Kelly

    8 novels that’ll truly horrify you The compilation of a literary nasty list is no easy feat – how does one put together a collection of controversial novels in our desensitized world? The film and publishing industries are saturated in blood and gore, bookshelves are weighed down by misanthropy and severed heads and Simon Cowell routinely disembowels contestants during X Factor on a Saturday evening. Okay, so that last one is a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean, right? Below is a list of novels that have haunted me, horrified me and truly stayed with meMORE

    8 horror films that will make you feel dead inside

    By Emily Kitchin

    8 horror films that will make you feel dead inside There exist those horror films which disgust even horror aficionados. Merely mentioning them has the power to deeply offend. They make you feel a little like a small yet important part of your soul has withered, blackened and died, like Dumbledore’s horcrux-cursed hand. You will never quite be the same again after watching them. MORE

    Sarah Lotz on Good Holidays… that go Bad

    By Sarah Lotz

    Sarah Lotz on Good Holidays… that go Bad If you’re a horror or thriller movie fan, you’ll know by now that going on holiday is a sure-fire way to end up eaten, imprisoned, chopped up, skewered, drowned, haunted or chased by a tyrannosaur. Jaws and The Poseidon Adventure ruined the ocean for my entire generation, The Blair Witch Project and Willow Creek tainted camping trips forever, and thanks to The Descent and Frozen (not the animated one with brain-searing songs and dresses, the one with ski lifts and carnivores) adventure holidays will never be same. Horror novels are no exception. Here are four cracking holiday-themed holiday reads that will ensure you’ll need a vacation to get over your vacation: MORE
