I've tried to collect horror here with positive (or at least, not damaging) portrayals of disability.
High school was not the greatest time of my life, which must be why horror stories set in high schools are so common.
If there's one thing I fear, it's the coming of winter each year. I hate being cold, and I know I'm not alone - which is probably why this list was so easy to make!
It's one of our earliest fears, the boogeyman in the closet. This creature goes by many names, but a few things remain the same: he is a shadowy entity who preys on children.
I'm coming at you with a few more book/movie pairings. I chose not to pick book-to-movie adaptations, but rather books and movies that complemented each other.
Dolls are totally creepy, even when they aren't in a horror movie. And when they are, you'd better watch out...
Dark fairy tales are one of my favorite things. I love taking a familiar story, especially one that ends "happily ever after" and, well, making it not end that way. Some of the original fairy tales are pretty horrific on their own, actually.
Discovering the unknown can dredge up a variety of fears, and where best to meet the unknown than on a road trip? Instead of snacking on gas station food and singing along to the radio, these stories take us on a literal journey as the characters try to escape the monsters that follow them.
Being a horror lover, I am always excited when I find a horror novel with my name in the title. It has happened more often that I thought it could. There are plenty of scream queens named Katie too!
Little kids are usually pretty creepy in horror. One of their creepiest habits is having an imaginary friend, who usually turns out to be a ghost or a demon.
