The Daily Beast’s Karen Han talks up the Insidious franchise for its ground breaking inclusion of a septuagenarian heroine.
With the DVD released last week, Valerie Ettenhofer of Film School Rejects argues the case for a second viewing of the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, directed by Andy Muschetti. She explains how the film gets better the more you watch it.
With the recently revitalised market for horror at the movies and on TV, followers of genre fiction may have suspected it was only a matter of time until the enormously popular anthology format finds its way to TV. Daniel Holloway of Variety has more information on this exciting development.
Michael Gingold of Rue Morgue catches up with Rob Galluzzo of Dread Central Presents to discuss the morphing of the Dread Central brand into one now associated with film distribution.
The horror legend, Brian Keene has pulled together a blog with a comprehensive list of the best books of 2017, with a little background on each. There is so much gold on this list, so if you have any leftover book tokens or gift certificates, this list will help you spend them.
