I Can’t Even: Horror Movies I Will Never Watch Again

By: Meg Humphrey   It’s no secret I love horror movies of all kinds. I’ve even sat through Cannibal Holocaust and The Human Centipede 2.

Old Crimes Feel New: BBC’s Ripper Street by Meg Humphrey I was really upset when I stumbled upon Ripper Street (2012) on Netflix and had heard nothing about it. I figured with how crazy the population of Tumblr is over anything BBC that I would at least have seen one or two gif sets or […]

Woman in Horror- A Dichotomy

Woman in Horror- A Dichotomy By: LB Chambers I am a big horror fan. Let me clarify. I am a big horror (anything that isn’t torture porn or slasher) film fan. Which I realize makes me a non-horror fan to many people, but I digress. I read and watch a lot of horror films, and have throughout […]

Can you explain to our readers what exactly is speculative fiction and how it inspires the nerd in you?  It’s a pretty contentious term, speculative fiction.  I like it because it encompasses a broad range of storytelling modes, but that breadth […]
