Trailers to Die For–A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

I LOVE movie trailers. My favorite part of going to the theater is seeing the previews, and as my family will tell you (much to their annoyance), I have to be in my seat before the previews even start, or the whole theater experience is ruined for me. Obviously, my favorite kind of trailers are horror movie trailers, and most of my all-time favorite horror flicks had me hyped for their release with a killer trailer. In this series, I'll be looking back at some of my favorite trailers, and I'm starting with a classic--A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. h[...]


The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a Living Horror History Museum

Over three years ago on this very blog, I was gushing about what a fantastically scary comic series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was. Well it's 2018 now, and thanks to a very successful Riverdale TV show, we have recently just experienced the first season of the live-action Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series. And what a season! Not only did I love the storytelling and how the tone got progressively darker as it went, but I was blown away by the multitude of Easter eggs in this show. I mean, this is beyond few nods here and there to the movies and stories[...]


The Summer of Screams Is Ending, But the Frightening Fall Has Just Begun!

We here at the Midnight Society had a blast celebrating the Summer of Screams. Not only was there an amazing writing and art showcase hosted by our amazing founder Jolene Haley (which you can check out here), but my fellow Midnighter Kathy Palm and I live-tweeted three flicks from my favorite franchise ever, Friday the 13th! In fact, we had so much fun that we can't stop just because summer is over. So, welcome to the Frightening Fall. We'll be live-tweeting more Friday the 13ths, as well as some of our favorite '80s horror flicks, throughout the next few mont[...]


Freddy Krueger Is One Badass Ghost

This week is Ghosts Week for Midnight Society's #OctFearFest, and today I want to talk a bit about the ghost of the Springwood Slasher. Perhaps you know him by a different name--Freddy Krueger. When people think about what Freddy is, the word ghost doesn’t immediately jump to mind. And over the course of the Nightmare on Elm Street series, he became something much more than a ghost (we can chat about the Dream Demons another time). But at the start of the Elm Street saga, Freddy Krueger was definitely a ghost. Specifically, a vengeful spirit. Like the spiri[...]


Horror Clothes – They Are Killer

My fabulous friend Ezekiel shared the BEST website with me today. Have you ever said, “I wish I could feel the warm embrace of Jason Voorhees.” How about, “I desperately want to wrap Halloween around my neck.” What about, "If I looked like Freddy Krueger, I'd get all the girls." Well, your life is about to change! Especially if you're one of those on-it people who do all of their holiday shopping before October and you've got a horror lover on the list. It appears that MondoTees.com has anticipated this and already has the COOLEST clothing and a[...]
