BECAUSE HORROR is the virtual launch of a new horror publication, with readings from authors Johnny Ray Huston + Bradford Nordeen, video by Michael Robinson and music by Romy. Hosted in partnership with Roxie Theater for the week of HALLOWEEN!
BECAUSE HORROR is a collection of 13 essays (incl. one poem) that mixes critical writing and memoir to explore horror movies and how they haunt memory. Bringing the glee of fandom into cinema scholarship, BECAUSE HORROR promiscuously sways through titles like MESSIAH OF EVIL, PULSE, MANDY, DANTE’S COVE and SCRE4M, with prose that spreads sticky like louche gore over the history of a genre and its mutating sites of broadcast.
