How to Make Your Own Short Horror Film for Halloween

Halloween is coming up in a few months (yes, I know everyday is Halloween around these parts), so it’s time to start preparing. I’m sure you’ve got your costumes ready, but why not put them to good use – not just for the party you’re planning to attend with that special person you’ve got your […]

Crispin Hellion Motherfuckin’ Glover

Crispin Glover, who finally made an appearance on the latest episode of American Gods, is indeed one of my own personal American Gods. I love that guy. While American Gods is one hell of an interesting show all on its own already (which you should check out if you haven’t yet), and the latest horror […]

Horror & Sci-Fi: Helping Us Cope with Reality

I don’t think any other genres can cover social commentary and widespread fears the way storytelling in horror and sci-fi are able to. There’s just something so rich about these genres that allows for the best palette. I think the heightened reality and poignant themes really illustrate complicated issues and ideas well. As pattern-seekers, we’ll […]

Why Do We Have Such a Powerful Emotional Reaction to AI in Science Fiction?

I’ve always been deeply, deeply affected by AI (Artificial Intelligence) in fiction. Blade Runner, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, and Humans are especially important examples because they express the potential for goodness and connection more so than the dangers of enslaved humans as depicted in films like: The Terminator and The Matrix (also very important AI movies). […]

Creator Corner: New Segment on HL for Creators

Requests We Dislike I get emails each and every single day with review, promotion, and advertising requests. With that in mind, you would think that HL might be making money. Unfortunately, because we have to turn down about 99% of those requests, it just doesn’t work that way. The biggest problem is that we get […]

I’ve Been an HL Reader for Years and All I Got was this Lousy Shirt

I’ve been struggling to find a reasonable and affordable way to sell shirt designs. I’ve tried Zazzle, CafePress, Teespring, Spreadshirt, applying for Amazon Merch (no response yet), asking other sellers for advice, you name it, and nothing has been a good fit yet. The problem? Mainly, it comes down to price. These services all start […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
