If, like me, nothing excites you more than a nice san-serif or a semi-bold DS Luthersche, and also the movie Alien, you’re going to love this. Typeset in the Future looks at every single font used throughout the movie, and what it possibly means.
This new feature over at Horror News will be looking at horror franchise part threes, beginning with the Michael Myers-less (yes, I know he appears on a TV screen for three whole jiffies when Tom Atkins is getting pissed in the bar!) Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
This rant on the subject of horror over at Dread Central is worth a read.
Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer once sang about how cold it was outside (good job neither of them were homeless), and what better way to spend those chilly evenings than sitting in front of a nice log fire (gas works, too, but you’re more at risk of monoxide poisoning and subsequently death) watching a horror movie. Horrormovies.ca pick their top ten winter horror movies.
At the tender age of sixteen, Richard Chizmar first read Stephen King’s nightmarish – especially if you work in a Travelodge or Premier Inn – The Shining. In this article over at Stephen King Revisited, Chizmar returns to the book that he calls, “Almost too scary.”
