I have been a fan of horror from a very young age, reading the likes of James Herbert and Stephen King long before I should have. For me, horror encompasses all the genres - you can have action, romance, drama - all while going up against the bad guy or monster.
I remember visiting the video store as a kid, yes videos, I'm old, and always rushing to the horror section which was always disappointingly small. Friday the 13th ,Halloween, Critters, The Lost Boys were just some of the titles I watched.
When it came to books I read Goosebumps and Point Horrors, tame in comparison with some books, but still great fun to read.
I think that horror novels and movies give us a scare but they also tell us stories of good overcoming evil.
If you are not a horror fan I suggest you give it a go. It's not all gore, there are some great psychological horrors available. Be sure to check this blog for some great horror authors.
