I cut my teeth on The Shining so that needs to be here. This is going to take me awhile to think about what's scared me the MOST recently. For movies I am more interested in the growing fear rather than gore and cheap jumps but - of let's face it - I love that shit too. When it comes for horror mags I prefer Rue Morgue to Fangoria and the others.
My dream come true scenario: find a movie based on a book that's based on a real story with a great website. That way I can get totally obsessed on the subject matter and experience it from different angles. I love when something like Masters of Horror comes around and that introduces me horror writers I did not know about so I can discover and explore. I've also really enjoyed short horror stories the last few years, and of course I'm a sucker for Lovecraft and Poe. Scary fairy tales - I loooove that.
Alamo Drafthouse Denver to see the opening of WWZ - the the zombie shorts and makeup! not the actual movie.
Hey, I'm Betsy. I love horror books, movies and TV. Zombies, serial killers, but no vampires (we all know why). I also used to write movie reviews.
