“It’s October…Which means slasher flicks, vampires, satanic cults, zombies, giant worms, cabins in the woods, stupid, frisky teenagers, lots of screaming and an unrealistic amount of blood that no human body could actually contain.” -The Midget
My sister over at Inevitably Revised is starting a new series on horror. Being ‘big sister’, I remember when she wouldn’t watch LotR all the way through because it had decapitated heads, now she has become quite the horror fan, and as she does with most things has turned an interest into a fine tuned passion. With this series she means to delve into the horror genre and what exactly ‘horror’ can mean.
“The point of fiction should be to stretch your thinking, and to come up with more questions to find more Biblical answers to and strengthen your faith. Each time you read a story, you are reading someone’s worldview from their heart. This applies to horror as well.” – The Midget
While my personal tastes tend to the most ‘horrific’ horror movie I like is The Mummy or World War Z, I have been learning to appreciate this genre more through her interest. There are good stories to be found here, even amongst some movies which will find me slipping my glasses off for some of the scarier scenes.
