You Can See It Coming…

Posted by Dirck on 8 October, 2021

It is often said that there are only {a relatively small whole number} of stories in the world, and that complete originality is not possible.

This comes into horror entertainment with extra force, since there is so often a cycle of fashionable frights (see 1980s Slashers for a fine illustration) that can quickly descend in to tropes and formulae.

The answer to objects based on this observation is this: we take pleasure from the skill of the execution.

Also, as Alasdair Stuart often reminds us in the outros over at Pseudopod, horror is watching something approach.

Today’s ink, not quite what was expected from the context: Edelstein Olivine
