The Monsters and Ghouls Aren’t The Scariest Thing Here
Traveling Into Lovecraft Country
One of the genres that have been underplayed in the New Golden Age has been horror. Horror is played for camp value (mostly in the world of Ryan Murphy) and for sexual value (True Blood comes to mind) but there have been very few series that I’ve seen that are genuine terrifying (Evil has come the closest). Then a few weeks ago, Lovecraft County premiered, and we got not only monster horror, but the horror that is eerily appropriate to the era we are living in.
