Is Anyone There – A Poem by M.C. Adams

Is Anyone There – A Poem by M.C. Adams

I can’t hear anything I can’t hear anyone The silence is not only deadly but deafening I’m screaming for help But no- no one is listening I’m afraid of the blackness Not darkness because that’s just the start of the black First the chill that runs down the spine is clinging to my back like a demon in the night trying to attach its spirit to mine; A shadow always creeping behind every step I take. I fall. Can someone…

I started to cross the busy road, when I misheard my friends’ older sister say, “go now”. I started to cross and was inadvertently hit…

Interview with Valeska Griffiths of Grim Magazine and Anatomy of a Scream

Interview with Valeska Griffiths of Grim Magazine and Anatomy of a Scream

Where did the idea to start Anatomy of a Scream come from? I’ve always been pretty fascinated with the darker side of life. My mother loved horror, and I have vivid memories of both hiding from the films she used to watch and sneakily trying to see them for myself. I grew up obsessed with Stephen King novels, 90s teen horror and slashers, ghost stories, and the paranormal. AOAS began as just a quiet, personal blog, where I could practice…

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins Condemned is a first person survival horror game released in 2005 by Monolith Productions. I have been excited to play this game ever since I found out Monolith was the developers: they have a pretty good track record with horror games, having developed the F.E.A.R. series as well as the criminally underrated 2.5D FPS BLOOD. Needless to say I was wielding a hefty bar of expectations going into this. You play a member of the FBI’s Serial…

Castlevania: TV Review

If you’re on this site, you loved monsters as a kid. Probably even had a “Monster In My Pocket” or two. And during those days, you probably held that familiar Nintendo controller in your hand and threw down on some Zelda, Mario, or Metroid. But, as a monster lover, you inevitably found yourself playing one of the earliest horror games the NES had to offer. But no, that’s not the game I was talking about. Released by Konami back in…

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie

Papercuts: The Eyrie By Ryan “HB” Mount   The Eyrie is an independent horror comic from creator/writer Thom Burgess and art by Barney Bodoano.  The tale is one of a troubled photographer, enters into a creepy British town and creepiness ensues. The overall story telling was well done and while not on a level of modern Scott Snyder horror tale like Severed, but compared to current horror anthology comics, it stands up and is on par.  Most of the heavy…

Papercuts: Marvel's Chamber of Chills

Papercuts: Chamber of Chills from Marvel Comics By Ryan “HB” Mount   In the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s DC Comics was not the only producer of many horror genre comics.  Marvel seemed to be in an arms race against DC with the amount of horror comics they were producing at the exact same time. Chamber of Chills was just one of Marvel’s titles and it was published from November 1972 through November 1976 and ran for 25 issues….
