Richard Chizmar rereads Pet Sematary over at Stephen King Revisited, and gives us the lowdown on a book he first read back in 1983.
There was a time when horror films were only available from your cool mate at school, on third-generation VHS tapes with the words ‘Coronation Street” scrawled on them and a piece of Sellotape plastered over the bit in the corner. Skip forwards twenty years and you don’t even have to leave the house to get the latest horror film, thanks to VOD. Vodzilla looks at how the industry is changing.
The Lovecraft reread continues over at Tor. This time, Anne M Pillsworth and Ruthanna Emrys take a look at Joanna Russ’s ‘My Boat’.
Stories from the Borderland #10: “Who Goes There?’ by John W. Campbell and “The Crawling Horror” by Thorp McClusky
A fantastic article from Scott Nicolay in which he delves into John W Campbell’s Who Goes There and its many adaptations.
Horror loves a kick-ass female, and they don’t come any more kick-ass than the ten compiled in this article over at Fangoria by Kate and Tab, the hosts of The Girls in the Back Row.
