Is Horror Dead?

scary clown- how redundant

The Guardian ran a very interesting editorial asking if horror was dead?
I’m of two minds. Our world is so ripe with things that should scare the hell out of us, even more if you watch Fox news. So there should be lots of good horror oozing its way up from the collective unconscious.

The turmoil, the angst, the uncertainty, should be ripe for the picking, but where’s our Shelly or Lovecraft to tune into its frequency?

Maybe we’re so numb to horror all we can do is watch zombie porn. What do you think?
