I ♥ Halloween. I am the creator, editor, and keeper of Halloween Love. Although you'll find new creeps about helping me to maintain these macabre archives of dread. Reach me at black@halloweenlove.com.

Vestron Video Collector’s Series: The Gate

The Gate is one of those special kinds of high concept movies that could have only come out of the ’80s. I first discovered it as a child and then tracked it down again years later from the deep recesses of my nostalgic psyche. While this movie is actually on my Scream Factory wishlist, I […]

Twin Peaks Homework Done — Ready for its Continuation Here in 2017

I don’t think there’s any body of work, in either film or television, that has quite the same cult following as Twin Peaks. Despite knowing this for many years, only now, 27 years after its release, have I finally made the journey. In just the past few days, I binged my way through the first […]

Help Kickstart a Live Tour for Shriekback

Shriekback is a band of nutters from the ’80s, who make music outside the bounds of any easily-defined genre. Like many fans, I first discovered their diverse, haunting, atmospheric, and ultimately, experimental music, through the soundtrack of my favorite film Manhunter, and by extension, becoming my favorite band. With that in mind and the fact […]

Let’s Play Killer: A Party Game for Adults

Make-believe has always been important to me. I loved dressing up as a kid, chasing my friends around, coming up with and playing games. So, let’s make it official and define some rules. The game, we’ll simply call it Killer. Intended for Ages: 18+ (if younger, please seek supervision from an adult) Recommended Players: 4+ […]

Extrasensory Interviews: Open Invitation

I love learning, about everything really. Sometimes, what you’re after can’t be satisfied by simply reading and requires more exploration. And sometimes, like in this case, you’re not even really sure what you’re after and are just exploring for exploration’s sake. Originally, I planned on creating this interview series by seeking out and interviewing individuals, […]

Horror Site Spotlight: UHM (Upcoming Horror Movies)

Here at Halloween Love, we truly are about the love of it all, including other horror sites. No matter how big a site is, sometimes people miss it. So, we wanted to create a new segment where we give a shoutout to some of our own personal favorites. For me, my pick definitely had to […]

The OA is a Masterpiece in its Vision

When I say “The OA is a Masterpiece in its Vision” as opposed to simply “The OA is a Masterpiece,” I choose those words very carefully. Even though I personally consider it to be a masterpiece, I can’t tell you, the reader, that it’s a masterpiece to you or as some objective, universal truth. However, […]

Interview with Steve Barton: Creator of Dread Central

In my continued desire and curiosity to understand the changes the horror community is going through right now, including our own site here, I wanted to talk to someone else who had created a horror website, to see how their experiences related to my own. With the recent news of Dread Central joining Patreon, something […]

The Depressing State of the Horror Community

The horror community, we’re a ferociously passionate bunch. And contrary to what most outsiders might think of us weirdos who are obsessed with horror movies, we’re not violent, evil people. We’re often very sweet and kind people. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we push ourselves to be […]
