Horror By the Sub-Genres: Dream Horror

There is an inevitability to sleep that makes it frightening in a way that most real-world fears can never quite match. Sharks can be scary, but you can always stay out of the water, and you’re never required to go camping or participate in a séance with your friends. But sleep… that’s an inevitability to which everyone eventually succumbs.

Horror By the Sub-Genres: Humans Hunting Humans Horror

Humans love to stalk, to hunt, to devour. Many of the advancements humanity has found in the world have their roots in the desire to overpower another: weaponry, medicine, knowledge, these are all achievements which place humanity at the top of a quickly narrowing pyramid of superiority. We want nothing more than to know that we are at the top of the food chain.

Horror By the Sub-Genres: Subway Horror

Humanity’s love/hate relationship with the subterranean world has existed since the dawn of time. The caves that ancient man hid in to escape his predators were the same foreboding places that remained in darkness, even during daytime. The fertile soil that grew crops to feed them eventually became their resting place in death. It seems appropriate that we would still find ourselves looking over our shoulder in fear as we head underground for the convenience of mass transit.

Horror By the Sub-Genres: Redneck Horror

Ed. Note: BGH welcomes Chris and Kathleen, who are embarking on a project to explore the many hidden corners of the horror world in the new series: Horror by the Sub-Genre

In 1972, British director John Boorman created the grand-daddy of all redneck horror films, “Deliverance”. Though its subject matter was distinctly American, it was perfectly appropriate that a man from a country almost two thousand years old would remind us that we, at the time barely on the cusp of our two hundredth birthday, were not quite as civilized as we would like to think.
