    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'In The Tall Grass' (2019)

    Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'In The Tall Grass' (2019)

    Okay... NEVER base your ENTIRE FUCKING PLOT on something that is considered to be a huge no-no in writing. And what I speak of, is running your plot in circles. Bold effort, I give them that! And I have to admit, there was a lot to like about this movie. But it was—and this really isn't a spoiler—specifically designed to go round and fucking round in giant plot circle. How is it okay to write a plot that is literally intended to go round in fucking circles?!

    Fear and Fiction

    Fear and Fiction

    When we discuss horror in literature, there are several things to keep in mind. What are the cultural currents of the time? What is its era? What characterizes the fear which might be felt by those special few who vie for terror? It is with the mind towards these questions that we should look at horror, viewing it with the strong views that Lovecraft did. He attached horror to several themes present within his own time—in particular eugenics, quantum mechanics, and theosophy. These different themes influenced the way he viewed horror and the way his society would receive his horror. The difficulty of modern times is analyzing how horror should go forwards. We have seen the H. P. Lovecrafts, and Edgar Allan Poes, and Stephen Kings.

    The Black Corridor

    The Black Corridor

    Time is a damned thing. It circles back around on itself, like a snake eating its own tail. Sometimes, events that have transpired, long ago, seem to repeat themselves, as events realign themselves, and tragedy strikes the same spot, on the same date, maybe even at the same hour. A date in time, a day of the year, could draw to it the same mental vibrations that set certain events in motion, long ago.

    Making Monsters

    It’s unlikely that the settlers of the Southern Nevada desertscape expected a museum of horrors to become a cornerstone of their peaceful early-20th-century city. Yet 88 years later, a decorated hearse, a zombified Spider-Man, and a conspicuous sign touting "Tom Devlin's Monster Museum" have been erected as markers for one of Boulder City's hottest roadside attractions.

    The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Written

    The Greatest Ghost Stories Ever Written

    Ghost stories are often called some of the scariest pieces of writing of all time, and they make up a great majority of the horror genre. Written from the beginning of literature onwards, people have always been interested in the movements of those who are already gone and have written many stories for and about them. Some are based on real experiences, some are completely fictitious (well, you better hope they are) and some have grounding in historical or fantastical realities.

    100 Horror Books to Read for the Halloween Season

    100 Horror Books to Read for the Halloween Season

    Halloween is right around the corner and, with the holiday season presenting many spooks, I think it’s good to remember the literature that can also scare the living hell out of us too. There are many ways I like to celebrate Halloween, and one of them is by reading and re-reading some of my favourite scary reads on the way up to the special day. Others ways I like to celebrate are watching scary films and making some seasonal bakes such as things pumpkin flavoured and biscuits normally containing dark chocolate, raisins and toasted nuts. I’ve always been a big fanatic of Halloween because I love dressing up even if I’m not going anywhere. I like to make cookies and give them creepy aspects. Last year, I made my brother a cookie shaped and decorated like the Slenderman. Anyways, this list is meant to be a bit of fun, so we’ll go through one hundred books you can read to celebrate this holiday season. I’ll talk about ones that are particularly special to me. Before you ask, I only ever include books I’ve actually read myself in lists like this, so you can talk to me about any one of them if you’re having a hard time choosing (I don’t blame you because they’re all so good). I’ll mark some of my favourites with a (*) as well, so make sure you look out for them! Oh, and lastly, these books are in no particular order either.

    3 Frightening Clowns Not from the Underworld or Magical Hell

    3 Frightening Clowns Not from the Underworld or Magical Hell

    Don't get me wrong: I get the willies from zombie clowns, Pennywise-s, and certain Violators of a spawn-like comic book hero. They're the stuff of legends and horror, but ultimately we have to remember one thing: it's all fiction. The truth is we often get much more scared at the clown walking down the street in the middle of the night than we do a demon in a sewer drain with a red balloon.

    What It REALLY Means If Horror Movies Scare You

    What It REALLY Means If Horror Movies Scare You

    Human beings love being scared. That's why we watch so many horror movies! But have you ever wondered why we watch movies about scary things that don't exist, like Frankenstein's monster and evil inhuman nuns, rather than stuff that does? In terms of body count, heart attacks beat out Freddy Kreuger so badly that there's not even a contest! Why aren't there horror movies about those?

    Pale-Skinned Succubus

    She appeared in front of him with flaring red hair and pale skin that made it look like hardened milk. She was very beautiful in her gothic creepy sense, as she had this white skimpy dress with cleavage staring right at his wandering eyes that were scanning her beautiful pale arms and legs. Her eyes, thought, were bright red as she greeted him with an enticing smile across her face and her tongue moving exotically upon her upper lip.

    Payne of the Bites (Pt. 6)

    “Those truly in charge of the bio weapon program chose to switch off the defense sequence to the bio weapon specimen. They wanted to test how strong and agile the specimen had become, in the short amount of time of its creation. A slight beeping sound finally gave off the required satellite site of the elemental target. The target's goal is to capture before the killings. Now, one of the scientists planned to use the advanced teleportation technology aimed to launch soldiers into enemy territory, and transport the elemental target into the underground facility directly. This scientist met their death by the bioweapon’s hands, shortly after the transportation processes completion.”

    Nightmare Journal: Gun Boy

    I could feel that he wasn’t as in to me as I was in to him. I sat awkwardly on my twin bed against the window as he stood, vacant, at its side. Conversation had been dull and vague throughout the night and I spent it wondering what was on his mind, even though I already knew. I thought that a boy who charmed me the way he had in the beginning would be the one. I guess I was wrong, and now I’m stuck in this limbo until he voices his feelings, or ghosts me, which I could see him doing after today.

    The Homeless Lady with the Evil Eye

    Joe was delivering a package out in the San Fernando Valley one day and got the evil eye from a homeless lady. Yes he did! The evil eye was shot towards his direction for just being at the wrong place and time. It was quite evil since it had no purpose. It came from what Joe thought was an insane person. Still, after all the crap that went down, Joe thinks that the evil was alleviated with positive praying when the actual curse was being cast at him.

    “Deep within the underground lab facility every known staff and assistant which had embarked on a scientific discovery towards warfare, now faced destruction and extreme danger. Originally thought as a string to the theory of evolution, the test subject designed to mimic the highly trained assassin John Wick, now went entirely rogue among the lab. Slaughtering dozens of armed soldiers occupying the lab, the higher-ups of the facility chose to lock the entire underground laboratory down within hours of the attack. No one understood why the bio weapon specimen decided to turn on its creators, except the higher-ups.”

    12 Classic Creepypastas That Are Still Spooky

    It was during the late-2000s and early 2010s that Creepypastas really started to hit their stride. The name stems from 'Copypasta,' which is, essentially, a copy-pasted meme in comment sections. This makes finding the authors of these stories rather difficult due to how many people reposted them.

    History is littered with odd stories of ghosts and hauntings. People throughout the world claim to have spirits that follow them. However, one story stands out among them as particularly unusual. This is the events that surrounded the Winchester Family and in particular Sarah Winchester. The events that surrounded the Winchester family were so outlandish, that it was the inspiration of Stephan Kings book Rose Red.
