Ken B | 6482 comments Splatterpunk was a movement within horror fiction in the 1980s, distinguished by its graphic, often gory, depiction of violence, countercultural alignment and "hyperintensive horror with no limits." The term was coined in 1986 by David J. Schow at the Twelfth World Fantasy Convention in Providence, Rhode Island.

Corey | 4 comments I just finished Off Season myself and it was definitely the craziest thing I've ever read. Equally crazy to think it was successfully published in 1980.
