“Then Joe said, “I know what it was — split personality — when a man is two people at once.”

“Huh?” Danny grunted.

“Sure. I saw it on another TV horror show,” said Joe. “There was this good guy, and when the moon was full he turned into a monster—”

“Don’t be silly,” Danny said. “The moon isn’t even out now.”

“Is that all you watch on TV, Joe?” Irene asked, pursing up her lips. “Horror movies?”

“Nope.” Joe shook his head. “I only watch those before going to bed.”

“Hmf,” Irene sniffed. “Your parents shouldn’t allow you to watch such

Christopher Lombardo
“With apologies to Judy Garland and Cole Porter, all the world does NOT love a clown. John Wayne Gacy might have been the final nail in the coffin in terms of anyone associating clowns with funny (if a bunch of clowns die, do they all fit into one coffin?)”
Christopher Lombardo, Death by Umbrella! The 100 Weirdest Horror Movie Weapons

John Kenneth Muir
“Punks are nihilists who see no tomorrow at all, and dwell in a culture of death music and death imagery. Appropriately, Return focuses on a group of punks who bear names like Trash, Suicide, and Scum, their very names indicating their lack of respect for the world, and themselves. They see themselves as nothing in a world that doesn't value them, and won't survive an apocalypse.”
John Kenneth Muir, Horror Films of the 1980s

“Lindsay’s right,” Izzy says, collecting the leftovers. “Billie Jean is coming back for her. With a little help from his friends.”

“So . . . so is this a horror movie now, or a teen comedy?” Brittney says.

“It’s an afterschool special,” Izzy says, Hoddering her head over to study Billie Jean. “Know what the take-home message is? Don’t fuck with Izzy Stratford.”
Stephen Graham Jones

Kat Stiles
“After watching too many scary movies it was hard not to have an overactive imagination, along with an inherent distrust of seemingly benevolent (and sometimes inanimate) things, like lawn gnomes.”

Katherine McIntyre
“We deal with so many nightmares on a regular basis. When I’m watching a horror movie, there’s a pattern, a sense of control in them. I’m just an observer, not having to deal with any of the repercussions. It’s a nice dream to think monsters play by the rules, that they’ve got a pattern you can unlock and follow. Real life’s messy, and the chaos leaves you devastated in the wake.”
Katherine McIntyre, Rising for Autumn

“There were rat footprints in the dried lard in the frying pan. Sometimes the rats woke me, but this time I had slept through their visit. They were now a fact of life, like dogs or pigeons.

It was Raeberry Street, Maryhill, Glasgow in 1975. The cleansing department was on strike, and mountains of plastic bags full of garbage were piled in the back courts of the crumbling tenements. The flats didn’t have bathrooms or hot water, just closet-sized toilets.”
Barry Graham, When the Light-Bulb Is Bare: Essays on Horror and Noir

Stephen Graham Jones

“那你更應該和我在一起了,畢竟我是女人。”
黑潔明, 夢魅

Stephen King
“Here is the final truth of horror movies: The do not love death, as some have suggested; they love life. They do not celebrate deformity but by dwelling on deformity, they sing of health and energy. By showing us the miseries of the damned, they help us to rediscover the smaller (but never petty) joys of our own lives. They are the barber’s leeches of the psyche, drawing not bad blood but bad anxiety . . . for a little while, anyway.”
Stephen King, Danse Macabre

“If my dreams came true I'd be living in a horror movie.”
Marty Rubin

Stephen King
“Wasn't that what most of the bad stuff in the world was about, staying when you knew damned well you should go, pushing on when you knew you should cut and run? Wasn't that, in the last analysis, why so many people liked cheap horror movies? Because they recognized the scared kids who refused to leave the haunted house even after the murders started as themselves?”
Stephen King, Desperation

“I was seven years old when The Exorcist came out. I remember the grown-ups talking about it. I remember one grown-up saying she had to sleep with the light on for months after seeing it. I remember another saying he had to go on pills for his nerves after he saw it.”
Barry Graham, When the Light-Bulb Is Bare: Essays on Horror and Noir

“I feel like the soundtrack to Silent Hill is my personality through music”
Dean Mackin

John Kenneth Muir
“A former Hollywood actor and a senior citizen when he first took the oath of office, Reagan was a revolutionary in many significant ways, but not necessarily in the fashion one might expect. His two terms, and the term of his successor as well, might well be described as the greatest chasm between image and reality that this country has ever witnessed.”
John Kenneth Muir, Horror Films of the 1980s

John Kenneth Muir
“Motel Hell is a black comedy about hypocrisy, about the way in which every person, even serial killers like Farmer Vincent, tell themselves little lies to get through the day. It's easier to do terrible things, one concludes, when you believe you're doing good.”
John Kenneth Muir, Horror Films of the 1980s
