A catalogue of horror memories

If you grew up on horror films and books this is an incredible walk through of everything in the genre from years gone by. Nostalgic, warm and wonderfully comforting. Jim Moon is a legend for putting this together, he has a style that makes you feel like you are sitting by the fire in an old pub

Horror and pop culture

A great podcast looking at horror stories and how they’ve influenced pop culture.

I’ve been following it for a few years now, first on the Hypnogoria blog and now here. It’s always fun and interesting (even when I don’t always agree with it.)

The recent episodes looking at the history of Universal Studios have been really good, and have helped me find some fun old B-movies that I hadn’t known about.
