Make it to the Sequel: Horror and the Fight for Survival

I have a dark sense of humor. I once joked that if I woke up in a Saw trap, I wouldn’t play the game… I would just give up. I couldn’t see myself chopping off an arm or putting myself through some other bodily harm in hopes of making it out alive. Then again, I’ve

Horror and the Communal Experience

What is it about seeing something so scary we have to show it to our friends? Or maybe you’re too scared to see it alone and you have to drag someone along? This is not a new phenomenon, but it’s still a curious one. Depending who you see a horror movie with, it creates a

In Love and Horror

If surviving a horror film wasn’t tough enough – try being in love as well. Love is not always an easy matter, whether it’s finding love, maintaining a relationship, or overcoming a breakup. But serial killers or evil entities don’t consider this when executing their massacres (unless they’re manipulating you and your partner, or the

Why I Choose To Get Scared

Since this is a little bit of an introductory piece for me, I figured, why not start at the beginning? Scream famously asked: “What’s your favorite scary movie?“ I want to recall how and why I got into horror and what it means to me now, and what I would like to see coming from

Real Nightmares: Drinks Are On Us

Although the surroundings are different, the nightmares that I’ve been having the past few years involve some of the same things. It starts like a regular dream, but turns nightmarish when a glass of liquid, varying between full to 1/4 full, is randomly sitting there. Without thinking, I grab it and chug it down. As

Real Nightmares: Knock, Knock

I’ve had this recurring nightmare as long as I can remember. I’m sitting in the living room of my parent’s house, and even though I’m 30 years old now, I’m always a child (perhaps seven or eight) in this setting. Someone knocks at the door and I go through the kitchen and into the laundry

Adoration for Nightmare 4

What hasn’t been said about the fourth Nightmare? It’s certainly the “MTV Nightmare,” drenched in a 1980s timestamp that can’t be ignored. One would argue this is when Mr. Krueger jumped the shark and became an icon for one-liners and pop culture references for horror, before Charles Lee Ray took up that mantle. Freddy mania
