The Friday the 13th films are some of the most enduring of any horror series. Jason has been to Hell and back, beyond the confines of the planet Earth, and yet, he never dies, eternally returning to kill again and again. Jonathan Clode concludes his feature columns over at Horrornews.net, arriving at the beginning with the first films of this iconic franchise.
The tales may have been retold a few times, but Alvin Schwartz and Stephan Gammell’s collaboration created a classic series that is still sought after today. With the Guillermo del Toro produced adaptation soon to hit theaters, there’s renewed interest in the original books. Bloody Disgusting’s Wesley Lara talks about his first experience with the series from the Scholastic Book Fair.
Jon Bassoff, author of Corrosion, Factory Town, and The Incurables, among others, talks with Gavin Kendall about writing his latest release, The Drive-Thru Crematorium over at Kendall Reviews.
Originated by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, then taken over by the legendary Alan Moore (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Watchmen, V for Vendetta), Ginger Nuts of Horror shares this guest post by David Court about everything that makes Swamp Thing such an iconic character.
Tony Jones guest posts at Ink Heist for an engaging conversation with Andrew Cull. Cull is the author of Remains, his debut novel. Here Cull talks about his writing process, influences, and inspirations, as well as discussing his film work.
