Mark Gagne horror art interview

The work of artist Mark Gagne strongly resonated with me on first impression, particularly the placing of shadow figures into a decayed landscape through photography. ‘Shadow people’, have become a staple of horror film, literature, and art, through instilling a sense of dread in many. However, there is a more personal view and analogy of […]

Since his conception, Slender Man has been a popular figure among creepypasta consumers, including myself. Strangely enough, there doesn’t seem to be any big name novels out there that actually capitalized on the Slender Man boom until recently.

Sophie reading from the titular book

I adore independent film, escaping the usual clichés that are all too common in Hollywood. Consequently, small, independent companies are a good way to experience a fresh take on film making and storytelling.
