Creeptastic Costume Ideas

Obviously, here at The Midnight Society we are huge fans of Halloween. It’s full of Horror movies, haunted houses, and scary costumes! What more could we ask for! But, if you’re like me, sometimes coming up with all the details of a creepy costume can be tough. That is where I turn to Pinterest! As everyone knows, Pinterest is the place to go for creative ideas. I browse the app on my phone just about every spare chance that I get and I find endless writing ideas. It’s a great site for inspiration of just about any kind. Writing tips and quotes, hair and m[...]


American Horror Story: Hotel is Bizarre and Sexy…

...and I love it. **Caution: slight spoilers ahead**     In case you missed it, American Horror Story Hotel premiered this week and it was UH-MAY-ZING!!

Horror History: Laughing in the Face of Danger

Welcome to The Midnight Society’s #OctFearFest! You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants. - Stephen King When I sit down to think of the history of horror, lots of stuff comes into my mind (Frankenstein, of course) but if there's a type of horror I love best, it's comedy horror. There's nothing better than looking at something terrifying, and having a laugh. I'm sure that when people were first on this planet they were out there clubbing their dinner and laughing over the spray of blood, so the h[...]
