Holy crap do I hate blocks.

This site might become unusable. Why does everybody have to make unnecessary forced changes? This is so unwieldy and I can’t do anything I used to, or want to do.

Things to do in October when you Dread

Here’s a few quick suggestions

The Kasturi/Files on Speculative Chic

Follow Sandra Kasturi and Gemma Files as they recap a bunch of movies.

There have been 3 so far. The Haunting, The Thing, and Midsommar. If they recap Viy and The Boxer’s Omen, it’s because I asked nicely enough.

Watch Draug, which is finally available on many streaming services after several years in production. It’s got beautiful lighting, but unless you speak Swedish, you’ll need to be in the mood for subtitles. Medieval witch horror.

Listen to some of the many episodes of the Outer Dark podcast. The latest is Female, Binary, and Queer Bodies in a Weird Space (#55) with Sunny Moraine, Craig Laurence Gidney, Damian Angelica Walters, Laura Blackwell, Zin E Rocklynn

Dim Shores has a new book available from Brooke Warra

Dig into this history of ballet in horror (and please share all your dance horror titles for literature and film).
