Ghostbusters (1984) is first and foremost a comedy. However, there are some horror overtones in the film as well. I mean, it is called GHOSTbusters.
In House of Penance #2, the mysterious horrors of the Winchester Estate continue to produce atmospheric chills and deliver incredibly well-paced horror in a comic that’s ripe with historical interest. Teeming with the otherworldly red masses that made the first issue stand out, House of Penance #2 is quietly becoming a favourite indulgence for horrors of the mind made flesh.
I love smart, original horror. Books like The Haunting of Hill House. Movies like Hellraiser. Videogames like Fatal Frame. I love horror that goes beyond the undead, serial murderer slicing up teenagers and raises questions that aren’t inherently scary like repressed memories or sexual desire. It affects you more and stays with you for a lasting horror experience. So imagine my surprise that I’d yet to hear about Survivors’ Club, a comic series seven issues in that’s dark and twisted and definitely outside the box.
