The Horror Exchange
|||||Phantom of the Opera||]|
Hey, my name is Sam. I generally like the horror genre, specifically Poe/Lovecraftian horror. Its hard to get my bearings in current visual media since its difficult to find a good horror movie that doesn't have parts that are bad just to be bad. Not that there's anything wrong with, say, Army of Darkness or the such, but shouldn't that be more comedy than horror? [/tangent]
So to get things kicked off, I just wanna ask what people's favorate "sources" of horror are. Zombies? Vampires? Atavistic Degenerates? Ghosts? Demons? Black Magic? Unspeakable Horror? Werewolves? Giant Mantids? Aliens? Possessed Washing Machines? Clowns?
I think I personally enjoy the horror of atmosphere, where its an act, rather than a creature. The Cask of Amantillado comes to mind.
Bwahahaha! I vant to pick your brains!
I haven't got too much in the way of horror, yet, but here's one thats kinda bloody
