The chill of autumn is in the air, and an eerie excitement stirs as Halloween draws near. Here at HorrorGenre.com, we relish this most hallowed of seasons, when the veil between worlds wears thin and all things macabre take center stage. This October marks a milestone for our community – the first Halloween since the site’s revamp. Needless to say, we plan to celebrate in spine-tingling style.
To herald the month’s creepy festivities, we will unveil our new Scream Queen of the Month on October 1st. This iconic actress, whose vulnerability and steely strength has graced countless horror classics, is the perfect patron for our inaugural Halloween.
We will also revisit the timeless Halloween franchise, exploring its later installments may have lost their way, but the original films evoke an indelible atmosphere, from the unnerving stillness of Haddonfield’s streets to the haunting white mask that launched a cultural phenomenon. We will analyze Myers’ primordial evil, Dr. Loomis’ obsessive crusade, and of course, Jamie Lee Curtis‘ seminal portrayal of terrorized babysitter turned tenacious final girl, Laurie Strode. Relive where it all began, and discover the franchise’s enduring impact.
While we unleash this barrage of hair-raising content, eerie flourishes will haunt each post – flickering jack-o-lanterns, creeping cobwebs, and other disquieting decor. Consider it our gift to fellow devotees of the macabre.
Halloween is a sacred time for horror fans and creators, when our dark fantasies are embraced and our deepest fears exalted. Here at HorrorGenre.com, we invite you to celebrate with us, indulging in chilling tales, excavating the genre’s roots, and communing with kindred spirits. As the veil thins, we will revel together in the eccentric, the sinister, the terrifying. Stay scared, and savor the strange…Halloween has arrived at last!
