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.

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 […]

Kickstarter Campaign for Mobile Horror Bookstore

UPDATE — Unfortunately, the Kickstarter campaign failed and a new one has been launched here. It’s been a while since I posted about a horror-related Kickstarter campaign, which is sad because we love Kickstarter ’round here, but in my case at least, I haven’t been keeping up because I don’t have any disposable income that […]

Beyond the Gates — The Horror Version of Jumanji

I can’t say that Beyond the Gates is a great movie, but for a low-budget indie, it’s quite enjoyable and the theme of the movie is fun. In fact, it feels more like an anthology segment than a proper movie really, which I actually mean as a compliment. Not sure how I missed it growing […]

The Last of Us: Part II — Reveal

The Last of Us was a watershed moment in video game history. Gaming had become more cinematic for a long time, but nothing quite at the true level of a substantial dramatic and emotional film had been achieved in video games. Like what Breaking Bad did to raise the bar for television, The Last of […]

Interview with Krillbite: Developers of Among the Sleep

Lately, I’ve been on a bit of a binge playing exploration/walking simulator games. While I’ve enjoyed them all, I was most compelled to reach out to Krillbite Studios about their game Among the Sleep, because I could relate to it so much on a personal level. HL: Let’s get the dark stuff out of the […]
