How the Horror Genre TRULY Began: By Opening a Book

Remember that film THE NEVERENDING STORY? Bet you never realized that it was, in fact, based on -- yes, you guessed it -- a book. A tremendous children's book, actually. That should tell you something.

So I'll Go Out on a Limb Here and Take a Risk, Given the Digital Age, the Culture of Video Streaming and Film: It All Started With a BOOK!

We Love Books. They're the Heart and Soul of Story -- and YES, HORROR IS A BIG ONE


DRACULA. FRANKENSTEIN. Edgar Allan Poe. All sorts of writings snatching us by the collar and pulling us into the darkness just for a moment -- so we can appreciate the light when we reenter it. That's our story time.

I have to admit I get a little guilty tossing a lot of news around about the latest film review, or project, or TV show, and the latest digital sensation out there -- but none of it wouldn't even have existed, that passion, if it wasn't for the fact that when I was a kid, I picked up a book called BUNNICULA and fell in love with the genre.

Than I went to a Haunted Mansion at Wisconsin Dells. And loved monsters for the rest of my life.

Undoubtedly, books are a part of our hearts -- and I URGE YOU GUYS to CLICK THIS LINK.

And rediscover your childish monster once again.
