shroud 11

Long time staff book reviewer and he of the floppy man-breasts, Anton Cancre has two new stories that are currently available for your perusal and enjoyment. If nothing else, it stands as an opportunity to critique the critic, if he has talked a little sh*t about you in the past. “Beautiful Things”, a touching little tale of the straining relationship between a father and son in a world where the much lauded zombie apocalypse has … Continue reading

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

Oh hey there hot chixxx and sweet dudes I am quite comfortable at this stage of my life telling you that my favorite horror sub-genre is the zombie film. Killer aliens on spaceships are probably a close second, but I go through long stretches where all I’ll watch is zombie-horror.  Now, I’m sure there’s some psycho-analyst out there who can spout on and on about the flesh-eating subtext, but I assure you it’s not the cannibalistic … Continue reading
