So I love October and Halloween and everything spooky and creepy. For some that season ends with November first, however, in my head and life it never does. I’ve studied the supernatural, the occult, serial killers, and any horrifying instance available. It’s been a fascination since I was a kid. Naturally, I would want to write about these things.
Write what you know. Write what you would want to read.
“If I killed them, you know, they couldn’t reject me as a man. It was more or less making a doll out of a human being . . . and carrying out my fantasies with a doll, a living human doll.” – Edmund Kemper
“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow” – Ted Bundy
Since the governments are in the pockets of businesses, who’s going to control this most powerful institution? Business is more powerful than politics, and it’s more powerful than religion. So it’s going to have to be the vigilante consumer. – Anita Roddick
A lot of these types of films – the vigilante or revenge drama – were so popular in the ’70s because there was a feeling in the culture of loss of control. – James Wan
Popular culture no longer craves archangels and new dawns. Pop culture traffics in vampires and deads of night. – James Wolcott
Have a wonderful and safe haunting season!
