Seven more horror stories masquerading in other genres
Roberto Bolaño’s powers of horror (I read 2666 through a Kristevan lens)
Jonathan Littell’s The Kindly Ones: lurid, horrific, abject
28 Weeks Later is a good film, but it hates children
I hated Justin Cronin’s The Passage, which I suppose counts as a horror novel
Yoko Ogawa’s novel Hotel Iris is subtle, Lynchian horror
David Lynch’s film INLAND EMPIRE is subtle Lynchian horror
Playing online bingo games: Horrific?
Bedknobs and Broomsticks: not scary but who cares
Cormac McCarthy’s Child of God is scary, obscene, etc.
What I liked about that Zodiac movie (spoiler: everyone in the comments section tells me I’m wrong!)
