3 Super Stories on ‘Halloween’ and Horror That’ll Make You Want to Wear the Mask

Because William Shatner’s cool.

There’s no doubt the horror genre’s gellin’ these days. What with stunners like Get Out and A Quiet Place reaping and sowing like newborn Children of the Corn, right? Don’t even get us started with Us, Ma, and other bizarre yet masterful two-letter titles in the genre. But Halloween? Wow… Who would’ve thought that a genre could somehow rake in the cash with something typically considered B-horror shlock cult classic, yet these days similar titles somehow resonate with viewers (and readers) in ways even the more “intelligent” stories and films pine for.

Did You See the Recent ‘HALLOWEEN’ “Remake”?

We’re hoping you did. Technically it wasn’t a remake. It was, wholeheartedly, a sequel to end all sequels (literally) as it completely devoured the previous sequels following Carpenter’s original back in the late 70s. But you already know that, don’t you? Of course, you do. You dig the Myers and the Strode struttin’, killin’ and cashing it all in.

We do, too.

And there will be more to come. You can count on it.
