Twenty-Two Words explain why watching horror movies with your loved ones can be good for your relationships
Twenty-Two Words’ Ugne Rinkeviciute explains what we horror fans have always known, that horror movies are indeed good for your relationships. Here they have the science to back it up, too.
Dan Coxon, the person responsible for the weird, uncanny fiction anthology series Tales from the Shadow Booth, enlists the help of friends from Undertow Publications, Nightjar Press and Gehenna & Hinnom Books to explain the motivations, difficulties and more of publishing outside of the mainstream.
The Washington Post features an article reflecting on how differently horror affects people after becoming parents
In a feature article for The Washington Post, former actor and new parent Aaron Pruner talks about how being a father has changed him and made his long-term relationship with horror one that is much more difficult.
As part of their ‘Haunting the Halls of Horror’ segment, Rich Duncan at Ink Heist peels back the skin of Kathe Koja’s seminal 1991 debut, The Cipher. This article contains spoilers, but is a fascinating deep dive into the novel’s subject matter.
