Horror New Releases
Horror fiction is fiction in any medium intended to scare, unsettle, or horrify the audience. Historically, the cause of the "horror" experience has often been the intrusion of a supernatural element into everyday human experience. Since the 1960s, any work of fiction with a morbid, gruesome, surreal, or exceptionally suspenseful or frightening theme has come to be called "horror". Horror fiction often overlaps science fiction or fantasy, all three of which categories are sometimes placed under the umbrella classification speculative fiction.
“ Though I walk through the valley of death I will fear no evil, for I am the evilest motherfucker in the valley ”

[close] Consider the horror sub-genre of the werewolf. Werewolves are different from all other supernatural beings of myth or legend. They aren't generated in a laboratory, or powered by electricity. They don't suck blood or rise up from graves their flesh decaying from having been dead. Nor are they gigantic or mutated. Werewolves are men and women, mortal human beings who just happen to be cursed. By day, werewolves walk among other humans, completely unsuspected. Most nights too. When the moon comes out things begin to happen. Fur and fangs grow; feet turn into pads, fingers into claws. The standing human transmorgifies into a creature on all fours. To the extent they're conscious at all, these tortured beings are unhappy werewolves. They tend to be hungry, so they hunt, and when they do the innocent become fair game as prey. Fiction writers have spun tales of this creature for more than three centuries. We are here to find out about those tales, the earliest as well as the best, and then read them together.
