Inspired by a great article on i-D called "How Horror Became Cinema's Smartest Genre", we wanted to take a deep dive on the topic and talk about some of our favorite examples how the horror genre was/is cutting edge, fiercely smart and innovative, and takes on issues other genres may not be comfortable speaking to.

Jon Padgett's The Secret of Ventriloquism, named the Best Horror Fiction Book of 2016 by Rue Morgue Magazine, heralds the arrival of a significant new literary talent. With themes reminiscent of Shirley Jackson, Thomas Ligotti, and Bruno Schulz, but with a strikingly unique vision, Padgett's work explores the mystery of human suffering, the agony of personal existence, and the ghastly means by which someone might achieve salvation from both. 

Halloweekly sits down with this incredibly talented author to find out where his ideas come from, what scares him, and how he feels about the state of the horror genre circa 2017.

Of the major horror movie monsters, werewolves are a rarer breed. Which means a lot of werewolf movies get unfairly missed by the audience at large (and once in awhile, FAIRLY missed, unfortunately). 

In this episode we tackle 2014's Late Phases: Night Of The Lone Wolf and 1981's Wolfen. One of these movies we wanted to hit over the head with a silver-headed cane, and the other made us howl with delight.

Lao Tzu said “To lead people, walk behind them.” That makes Micheal Myers the greatest leader in horror history! This election season has put us in the mood to examine the idea of leadership through the lens of horror movies and shows. 

The concept of leadership in horror is a fascinating one, since most horror movies are just a long unfolding of crisis situations that call for decision-making skills and cooperation. In this episode we name our votes for 3 characters who were the best leaders in horror, and the 3 worst. 

Which movies made our list? Is The Mist an example of good leadership or bad? Who handled the zombie apocalypse best? Has host Nick been recruited by a certain sympathetic gentleman? Let's break it all down.
