Spoilers: Bloody Disgusting feature an at times difficult analysis of new horror film, Relic‘s portrayal of dementia
Bloody Disgusting’s Kim Faul writes on the new horror movie, Relic, and draws comparisons between the film’s portrayal of dementia and her own experience of loss through Alzheimer’s disease.
Sam Reader, writing for Tor Nightfire, selects five books on the subject of cursed films. From Gemma Files’ masterpiece, Experimental Film, to lesser known titles, there is something here for every videophile who leans towards the weird or frightening.
Horror DNA’s Ryan Noble has never played the original Silent Hill. Until now. Too young when the game first hit shelves, now he playtests it as a firm fan of horror gaming in 2020. He comes up with five takeaways.
The Ladies of Horror Fiction continue to do incredible work for the genre, lifting up female authors and helping their work to get the recognition it deserves. Their awards shortlist for 2019, along with some outstanding entries in the honourable mentions, to boot, would make a great reading list for any horror reader.

Leza Cantoral, writing for LitReactor, interviews Kathe Koja (Velocities, The Cipher) about two godmothers of horror fiction in Emily Brontë and Mary Shelley, and much more besides.
