The views and opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of 52 Weeks of Horror, its affiliates, or sponsors. Lorraine Warren has passed away at the age of 92. Half of the husband and wife paranormal research team made famous by the Amityville haunting of the 1970's, their reputation for exorcising evil spirits was exceeded only by their relentless self promotion. I've always been told not to speak ill of the d
If you were a child of the late 80's and 90's your first experience into the world of horror may very well have come from the shelves of your elementary school library. Alvin Schwartz's classic series, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark no doubt entertained, terrified, and inspired a number of us as children and finding those well worn paperbacks on the shelves or during a book fair was no doubt a highlight of our grade school careers. Even as I write this the Scary Stories Tr
From New Year’s Eve to Valentine’s Day, from Easter to the Fourth of July and from Thanksgiving to Christmas, Universal Studios Hollywood adds a demented twist to life’s biggest moments in the all-original Halloween Horror Nights maze, “Holidayz in Hell.” Inspired by the popular scare zone of the same name, the “Holidayz in Hell” maze will feature an original score by Electronic Music Artist and Producer Figure and offer guests new reasons to dread the holidays. A tortured T
You are going to die. No, it’s not a threat, just a friendly reminder about your own mortality which horror all too cheerfully helps you cope with on a regular basis. What separates us in many ways from other animals is the realization of our own mortality and the ability to make decisions based upon that knowledge. In horror, we tend to focus a bit much on the fantastic without stopping for a moment to think of the mundane. Horror in itself as a genre and cultural tradition
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, today announced initial casting for its upcoming horror anthology series, Creepshow, based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), and Tobin Bell (Saw) will star in the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed b
Oh, Netflix, how you love to create short seasons of incredible shows that must be binge watched and reviewed. Season 3 of Santa Clarita Diet is available to stream on Netflix now and it's everything we've been waiting for since the season 2 finale last year. Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) continue to get themselves in way over their heads in a series of murders, lies, and deceptive schemes that continue to spiral wildly out of control. Add to this the w
I’m always hesitant when a film is adapted into a television series. So often there’s just something about it that feels diminished, toothless compared to the cinematic original. What We Do in the Shadows is quite possibly one of the best horror comedies I’ve seen in the last five years and hearing that it was being turned into a series for FX was disconcerting to say the least. The mockumentary style antics of a group of vampires living together as roommates in the suburbs o
I have had a few people ask me lately what the big deal is over the #horror embargo that's happening on Instagram. "Why not use another tag?" and "Who's it hurting?" As for another tag, currently you can tag anything with the prefix of #horror (i.e., #horrorauthor, #horrorblog, #horrormovie, etc...) and it doesn't throw any flags or stop you. But what happens when that changes and, more importantly, why should we be okay with being warned repeatedly that what we love is "harm
It came to our attention last week that something unfortunate is happening on social media. Instagram in particular (but Facebook, Tumblr, and YouTube as well) has begun censoring posts with the hashtag #horror. When you search for #horror you’re immediately greeted with a message asking if you’re okay and offering links in case you need some kind of emotional or psychological help. If you proceed to search for #horror anyway, you’re only allowed to view the Top Rated posts u
