“Chibi Vampire, Volume 1,” by Yuna Kagesaki, reviewed.  Although it’s not very ‘horrific’ it is about vampires, so it still falls into Horror Month as far as I’m concerned.  Go horror! Go vampires!

One Minute Carrie

“Carrie,” by Stephen King, reviewed for Horror Month!  Stephen King seems to like using young people as the central characters of his horror novels – do you feel that this device makes it easier to create a feeling of horror for the reader?
