Review – Behind You: One-Shot Horror Stories

“It’s so funny to discover you’re made of meat and at any moment the world might take a bite. Our species comes wired with a great sense of humor. It’s one of our best traits.”
– From the introduction by Joe Hill

Brian Coldrick’s Behind You (collecting many of the images from his web series) is a fantastic mix of horror and very, very dark humor. If you like “two sentence ghost stories” you’ll love these, because each one only has a sentence, maybe two, to tell the story, with the picture on the next page. So you have a second to absorb the words, and then you get a little jump scare when you turn the page.

Binary System Podcast #98 – Horror movies with special guest Hannah

The nights are longer, the air is cooler, there’s pumpkin spice everywhere, so you know what that means? Time to break out our favorite horror movies and scare ourselves silly. (Hey, could you leave the light on in the hallway tonight? Why? Um, no reason…)

Special guest Hannah Wallace joins Binary System as we put flashlights under our faces and discuss our favorite horror movies: it was supposed to be one apiece, but that plan went out the window fast as we touched on (*deep breath*) In the Mouth of Madness, Blair Witch Project, The Ring, Event Horizon, Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Warriors, What Lies Beneath, and The Descent.

We also talked about a few of the gorier films (Saw, Drag Me to Hell, Silent Night Deadly Night) and why the hell we watched them, and then we finished up with moments from Snap Judgement “Spooked,” The Orbiting Human Circus of the Air (well, the one bit that we actually liked, starts right at 17 minutes), two sentence horror stories, Texts From a Jack O’LanternThe Black Pumpkin, and a cartoon Hannah remembers that had gargoyles in it. No, not that one, a different one.
