Hidden Horror - Lifting up the Rock

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 22, 2020




On our last Quackcast I had a realization about one of the recurring elements that shows up in a lot of horror I like.

Choosing Your Genre

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 1, 2020




For better or for worse, we are creatures of categorizations. We love to label things, and to sort them into neat little boxes so that we are absolutely certain we know what to expect when dealing with each one. It is that sense of familiarity that we are looking for ...
