The Terror – Initial Thoughts

This is what I knew about the Northwest Passage before I started watching the new AMC miniseries The Terror. Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage To find the hand of Franklin Reaching for the Beaufort Sea Tracing one warm line Through a land so wild and savage And make a Northwest Passage to the sea Westward from the Davis Strait ‘Tis there ’twas said to lie The sea route to the Orient For which so many died Seeking gold and glory, Leaving weathered, broken bones And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of stones And as soon...

Charlotte McKinney Topless….Seriously

I know that sounds like click bait but it isn’t.  Charlotte really did post a topless pic on Instagram today.  It is in black and white so you know it is arty, and while it is a good pic and all, I could not get past the fact that somehow she made herself look like Taylor Swift.  How even?  Look for yourself. So now I am legitimately confused as to whether this is a horrible picture of Charlotte or I think Taylor Swift is beautiful.  This is difficult stuff. Oh and there is ZERO reason for her to be...

Women in Horror Contest Drawing this Sunday!

As you know, the big Women in Horror Giveaway ran all through February and we got a TON of entries.  So I thought it would be a good idea to televise the drawing of the winners so you can see I am legit.  So this Sunday afternoon (March 11) I will do a live Hangout on Youtube so there is proof that I am not corrupt.  At least that I am not corrupt about this one thing. Watch the Facebook for more details as they become available!  I’m not corrupt; that I can tell...

5000 Times We’ve Done This

So WordPress tells you how many posts you have published and I noticed the other day that it was getting close to 5000.  This is how many it is as I type this: So I guess I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at how the site has performed over the years, and let you see the former glory.   As you can see, things have taken a BIT OF A DIP.  And while I like to tease some people on the team, the decline did coincide with some Google changes as well as...

Women in Horror Q&A with Aalya Ahmad

Tell us about yourself: I started researching horror in university because I’ve been a lifelong fan. I completed my Ph.D. dissertation on horror fiction in 2010 and, along the way, developed and started teaching a course called “The Monstrous Feminist,” which focused on women in horror, representations, gender roles, etc.. It became a very popular course and I adapted it for different disciplines. You can read about it in my online Offscreen article (link below). I’ve also done public lectures on horror and media interviews, especially on that creepy clown phenomenon and around Halloween. I write short horror fiction...
