Horror Community Highlights – October 22, 2010

  • Halloween Poems
    Poetry Foundation
    A short collection of poems from a variety of poets who prove that “whether you say ghost, genie, or djinn, the tingle in the spine is universal.”
  • Review if Parasomnia (2008)
    This Girl Digs Horror
    Any review that can work in references to Lewis Black and Hypnotoad is alright with me.
  • The Bedbug Horror Movie and 4 Others We Can’t Believe Haven’t Been Made
    The Moviefone Blog
    “We don’t know for sure, but we’d be willing to bet studios are currently shopping scripts concerning these recent newsmakers: bedbug infestations, oil spills, miners trapped in mines, a vampire-obsessed couple drinking a homeless man’s blood and hoarders.”
  • Stock Background Characters 101: Nerds, Geeks & Dorks
    Vegan Voorhees
    This is part of an ongoing look at often ignored background characters is slasher films. The introduction to this installment is particularly good in its careful delineation of the differences between Nerd, Geek, and Dork. Sadly, it turns out that I have attributes of all three types.
  • Halloween Top 10 Lists List
    Zombos Closet of Horror
    In addition to candy, constumes, and creepy movies, Halloween is the month of horror fan lists. I can’t keep up with them all. But that’s ok, because most of them are listed here.
  • Why Horror?
    Flowers of Flesh and Blood
    “Why do I, or you, or we, variously enjoy sitting through depictions of torture, murder, agony, fear, unequal threat, malevolent supernatural forces, unstoppable foes, psychological trauma or insanity?” My short short answer is this: Because we ain’t right in the head. For a far more intelligent answer, check out this terrific post.
  • Musical Moments In Horror History
    In it for the Kills
    With only three entries, this is a very short history, but I loved every bit of it.
  • The Great Slasher Research Project of ’10: End of Step 1
    And Now the Screaming Starts
    The first entry in this completely worthwhile and noble scientific experiment is a list, compiled by horror fans, as to what exactly constitutes a “slasher film.” I can’t wait for stage two!
