Halloween: Our favorite horror books

Horror novels are good any time of the year, but the best time for them is right around Halloween. With the weather getting cooler and the nights getting longer, there’s nothing like curling up in a dark room with a cup of hot chocolate and a great horror story and scaring the hell out of yourself.

It’s also interesting how much of horror has a sci-fi or fantasy element to it. The exceptions are true-crime books or novels about gritty, urban violence, and those are great, but Kathryn and Elizabeth really prefer the ones with some kind of otherworldly element. So they’ve whittled down their list of favorites and each picked three books they think you’d like, if you’re looking to sleep with the lights on tonight.

Review: Afterlife with Archie

Review: Afterlife with Archie

The elements of the story are all familiar: a tragic accident, a grieving loved one, a forbidden magic spell to bring the dead back to life. What starts out with the best intentions ends with an entire town under attack by a hoard of zombies. The difference here is that this isn’t Stephen King or another Night of the Living Dead clone, it’s Archie and the gang, with Sabrina the Teenage Witch breaking the rules to raise Jughead’s beloved pup Hot Dog from the grave. Afterlife with Archie has been running for a few months now, but a reprint run started on October 22 and I stumbled across the graphic novel for the first time a week before Halloween. How could I not pick this up?

Video: The Evil Within Episode One and Two

It’s finally October, my favorite month of the year. I love October because not only is Halloween at the end of the month, but my birthday is also at the end of the month. That’s right, my birthday is on Halloween! To celebrate this month, I decided to start a play-through of Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within.

The Evil Within is the spiritual successor to Resident Evil 4, arguably the best Resident Evil in the series. Shinji Mikami was the director of Resident Evil 1-4, which probably explains why Resident Evil 5-6 kind of went off the rails. But luckily, The Evil Within is sort of a return to form. In any case, hit the jump button and enjoy the first and second episode of my play-through! Read On
