Now, on to a few of my favorite horror links.
Horror Film Reviews:
“Horror obsessive reviewing the best and worst of what the genre has to offer.”
“Tackling all things horror with a slash of analysis and research, horror journalists and occasional academics Andrea Subissati and Alexandra West are your hosts for brain plumping discussions on all things that go bump in the night.”
“These tales of supernatural suspense by Soren Narnia adhere to the most primal element of storytelling: a single human voice describing events exactly as it experienced them. The stories, stripped of even proper titles, spill forward as taut, uninterrupted confessions.”
“Founder David B. Silva began Hellnotes in 1995 as a weekly email newsletter with a hardcopy component and a paid subscription base. Since then, it’s gone through a number of transformations and today delivers the same horror genre news and information several times a day for free.
Hellnotes, owned by JournalStone Publishing, remains dedicated to bringing you the best information on the internet, covering horror movies, horror fiction, horror comics, horror writers, and more.
