Whatever Happened to Horror?
WHAT THE HELL happened to the horror genre?
Whatever happened to menacing monsters, vicious vampires, lethal lycanthropes, ghastly ghosts and monstrous mummies?
These days our bloodsuckers are more likely to show their romantic nature, werewolves work for covert government organisations, phantoms are private investigators and the walking dead can be found sipping tea amongst the polite society of a Jane Austen novel.
These are not the iconic figures of fear and wonder that we grew up with. These are not the Creatures of the Night
“The abundance of talent will provide ample delights and frights for anyone in search of true classic horror” –Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
