If you read my blog for very long, then you’ll discover I’m slightly addicted to horror films and literature (novels, novellas, short stories, etc.).
I saw my first horror movie, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), while spending the night with some church friends, when I was about 9 years old. I was scared outta my mind but I was hooked. I dig ’em all–the creepy, the gory, the cheesy, the psychological, the “smart”–you name it, I’ve probably watched it. Or I have it on my “must-watch” list, which is currently at about 500+ movies.
Below is a list of blogs and web sites that pacify the horror junkie inside me.
