From Roald Dahl to Goosebumps: Horror in Children’s Lit
Slow Burn Horror

8M ago
“The witching hour, somebody had once whispered to her, was a special moment in the middle of the night when every child and every grown-up was in a deep deep sleep, and all the dark things came out from hiding and had the world all to themselves.” ― Roald Dahl, The BFG Horror is already a controversial genre. Horror for children is doubly so. Children in horror is fine, a staple even. They symbolise the true nature of the threat, the fragility of innocence; they stare at you creepily, but are never in any real danger. After all, children are the thing we are meant to rescue from the horro ..read more

The Top 6 Sensory Deprivation Horror Movies
Slow Burn Horror
by stuartthamanbooks
8M ago
For most people, their introduction to sensory deprivation horror was likely in 2018, either through Bird Box or A Quiet Place. These movies are perfect examples of sensory horror: movies that take away one of our main preceptory senses. In A Quiet Place, we have limited sound; in Bird Box, the characters aren’t allowed to see. To be clear, both Bird Box and A Quiet Place are phenomenal movies, and they both make the list. But they certainly weren’t the first in the genre (which is where we’re going to start). You probably wouldn’t expect to see an Audrey Hepburn film here, but here we are ..read more

What is Body Horror?
Slow Burn Horror

“At first I thought it was a spale. There was just this little ink line on the index finger nail of my right hand. I tried pulling on it with a pair of tweezers then picked at it with a  match sharpened by my teeth. All to no avail. As it started to protrude from the nail, I constantly poked and agitated it until it overhung my finger by about 2mm.” Nail, Laura Hird When I recommend the movie Mad God to my friends, I give them the heads up that it has a lot of “body horror.” They understand what I mean, no further context needed. When someone says they don’t really like Saw because t ..read more

October is the perfect month to watch horror movies. Unfortunately, it’s also the perfect month to go apple picking, check out a haunted house, roll up to a pumpkin patch, take a hike among the falling leaves, hunt down the best hot chocolate in the state, perform a ritual, pray to an Elder god, become acquainted with the unknowable. With so much to do, it can be easy to let your horror movie watching fall by the wayside.  All October, we ran a daily horror movie watchlist. In case you fell behind (not that I think you did – how hard can it be to simply watch 31 movies in as many days), h ..read more

The Best Scene in Phil Tippett’s Mad God
Slow Burn Horror

“Rising, street-car, four hours in the office or the factory, meal, street-car, four hours of work, meal, sleep, and Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday and Saturday according to the same rhythm… But one day the “why” arises… It awakens consciousness and… at the end of the awakening comes, in time, the consequence: suicide or recovery.” Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus, and other essays Phil Tippet’s Mad God is a ride I was not prepared for. Created over the course of decades by an industry titan that brought us everything from Robocop to Starship Troopers, it sets a high bar for it ..read more
