A Crash Course In Horror Part 1



When it comes to tracing the roots of the horror genre, one need not look any further than their local library. The foundation of everything we know and love about horror can be found in the pages of some of the greatest literary works. It’s also no surprise that most of the classic horror films are based off of those outstanding works. If not for the imaginations of long dead writers, we would not be blessed with the films of the early twentieth century. And if not for the brilliance of those early filmmakers, we would not have the likes of Freddy, Jason or Michael on our movie screens. Literature feeds into film and film feeds into literature. Inspiration, imagination and terror… Mmmm, a recipe horror fans can savor. Step on up to the buffet of butchery as we serve a double helping of horrific history on 2GuysTalking Horror!

What is 2GuysTalkingHorror?



It is a genre that transcends age, sex, color and culture. It can be found in literature, art, music, and film all over the world. Whether it’s located in the blade of an all too real attacker or the razor clawed glove of a sadistic dream demon, the end result is the same…Horror! The mounting tension as we page through the newest Stephen King novel. Our grip tightening on the arms of our seats because we know a jump scare is imminent. The feeling of dread and anticipation we get from hearing two little notes “Da Dum”, knowing our hungry villain is near. Why does Horror give us such a thrill? Why are so many fans torn between what makes up good horror and bad horror? Can one man’s passion for the Horror genre change the worlds narrow perspective? Let’s find out during the inaugural episode of 2GuysTalkingHorror and be sure to tell us what you think!
