Ryū Murakami
“They needed a reason why a little kid would commit murder, someone or something to point the finger at, and I think they were relieved when they hit upon horror movies as the culprit. But there's no reason a child commits murder, just as there's no reason a child gets lost. What would it be - because his parents weren't watching him? That's not a reason, it's just a step in the process.”
Ryū Murakami, In the Miso Soup

“When I was cooking I enjoyed a sense of being ‘out’ of myself. The action of dicing vegetables and warming oil made my hands tingle and my thoughts switch to a different hemisphere, right brain rather than left, or left rather than right. In my mind there were many rooms and, just as I still got lost in the labyrinth of corridors at college, I often found myself lost, with a sense of déjà vu, in some obscure part of my cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that plays a key role in perceptual awareness, attention and memory. Everything I had lived through or imagined or dreamed appeared to have been backed up on a video clip and then scattered among those alien rooms. I could stumble into any number of scenes, from the horrifically sexual, horror-movie sequences that were crude and painful, to visualizing Grandpa polishing his shoes.”
Alice Jamieson, Today I'm Alice: Nine Personalities, One Tortured Mind

Clive Barker

Carrie Vaughn
“You know why horror-movie characters always get killed? Because they've never seen horror movies. They don't know how it works. Right? But we do. So no one go into the basement alone. No one go screaming off into the woods alone. No one has any sex.”
Carrie Vaughn, Kitty's House of Horrors

“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
things.”

“They don’t,” Joe grinned.”
Jay Williams, Danny Dunn and the Weather Machine

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

“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

“況且你知道嗎?根據好萊塢數十年來的恐怖電影定律,落單的那個,總是第一個被宰掉。”

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

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
