Witzke in the morning

The best writer on horror movies blocked me on social media some months ago, which is fair enough - the only way to survive on social media is to go heavy on the blocking - but it means it takes me ages to find their work now.

But Sean Witzke's piece about the history of fashion horror is so fucking good, and incisive and personal, that it puts all other horror writing to shame. There's so much trash articles about horror movies on the internet - making tedious arguments about obvious cases, talking about all the movies you expect them to talk about - that things like Witzke's piece are to be absolutely treasured. And are worth the fucking wait.
