My name is Susannah. A born and raised Texan, I live, work, and play in Houston.
I love reading, writing, and watching movies. While I’ll read or watch just about anything, I have a particular fondness for horror.
At the risk of alienating those around me or coming off as “weird,” I’ve always been drawn to horror. Recently I decided to explore my attraction to the genre, to the macabre and morbid threads running through these stories. They grip me with fear and refuse to let go. And yet I keep coming back.
I realized that I was and am, quite by accident, an avid horror fan. Ghost stories, urban legends, horror movies, and scary books entertain me, as they do millions. But I also find that much of what these stories do is art. They aspire to explore the human condition in a way that deeply resonates with me.
I want to examine how such horrific and terrifying stories shine a light into the dark corners of the human psyche. How the show us truths about the world we’d rather not face.
I want to share my findings with you.
Come explore the dark corners with me.
