The Pan Book Of Horror Stories selected by Herbert van Thal (book review).

There is implied racism in certain stories but that has to be taken in the context of the time when they were written. For example, in ‘His Beautiful Hands’ by Oscar Cook, the manicurist is vengeful partly because of her Javanese […]

The Monster Of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht (book review).

A difficult thing to decide is exactly what a monster is? In horror, it is often as a term to describe a hideous, dangerous and probably supernatural creature that menaces from the shadows. The word ‘monster’, though, just means big. These are recognisable monsters but more scary are those that are not outwardly recognisable. They […]

Stephen King and Joe Hill seed some horror for Netflix in, ‘In The Tall Grass’ (trailer).

Here’s the scary ‘ol movie for Netflix’s adaption of the Stephen King and Joe Hill short, In The Tall Grass. Looking at it, you have to think … genius; they shot a movie so cheaply all they had to do was find a field and ask the cast to wander around lost in it for […]

The World Of IT by Alyse Wax (book review).

I’m glad I watched the first IT (2016) film before reading this book, ‘The World Of IT’. Considering the current lack of availability, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a boxset coming out any time soon.
