I know a few of you are hard at work already conjuring up some words on the spooky genre known as horror. As Halloween quickly approaches, then, I am looking to cram the site with some fine horror movie writing. And I can’t do it all myself. I’ll be brief, but if anyone has something they would like to contribute I am open to discussion. And will likely publish accordingly. To give you an idea, here is the sort of thing I am looking for:
Masterpiece Memo – The random series here where anyone can write a piece praising a movie that they consider to be great, a review, only this month it would have to fit somewhere within the horror genre – I’ll be spilling my bloody guts on Suspiria and The Exorcist.
Movie Lists – 15 Bloodiest Deaths; 10 Spookiest Villains; 20 Films That Made Me Wet My Bed – you get the idea. I may also throw in a list of 10 or so rare creepy movies from the epic horror film marathon the wife have embarked on since late September.
Analysis / Critique – Fancy writing a think piece on the evolution of the horror film? An essay on the portrayal of women in the genre? An analysis of a particular period in cinema’s history? Anything you have to say, I will likely listen.
I’m happy to cross-post anything you may have already written / published, and will consider any other kinds of horror film writing you may have in mind. I may if I can muster up the courage attempt to put together a horror film quiz myself. We’ll see. All ideas welcome.
