8 Deadly Horror Websites and Blogs for Horror Dreamers

8 Deadly Horror Websites and BlogsWhat does this title have to do with my dream to be a popular horror writer?

I believe you should always look for inspiration in people who share your same dream. The Internet is a great place to find inspiration. Putting your dream genre into Google search can return lots of information on your dream subject.

It may spark an idea to help you get started working on your dream.

The horror blogs and scary story sites that help me get in touch with my  horror story muse –

1. Drunken Severed Head

On this blog his blog he claims to love to laugh, love to be scared. Fascinated by all things dark and monstrous. Wed on Halloween to a Voodoo Queen. And still looking for his body!

2.World Horror Stories

They claim that they share the most scariest stories and photos obtained from worldwide. They allow readers to also submit their horror stories or photos for sharing. Are you ready for the scariest stories ever?

3. The Groovy Age of Horror

This blog was formerly devoted to ’60s-’70s horror in paperbacks, fumetti, Groschenromane, comics, and movies, but is now devoted to all that and more.

4. Zombos Closet of Horrors

They claim to always deliver on this blog spine-tingling pleasure to roll with the Cultured Horror Heads and have the best overview of the horror genre, presented with wit, style, and wickedly refined whimsy.

5. Slasher Speak

This is the blog of Vince Liaguno, the Stoker Award-winning editor of Unspeakable Horror: From The Shadows of The Closet (Dark Scribe Press 2008), an anthology of queer horror fiction.

6. Dinner With Max Jenke

The blog of Jeff Allard, once a fanzine publisher who is currently a contributing writer for the online horror news outlet Shock Till You Drop.

7. The Cobwebbed Room

They claim to showcase monsters and horror in British popular culture.

8.Behind The Couch

behind the couch

A blog featuring horror film reviews from behind the couch with some spoilers and red wine. Plus his logo banner is hilarious – love it!

Exploring these sites should keep you busy for the week.

In closing I’ll leave you with the following quote –

“He seemed like a completely normal individual. But at some during the winter he must of suffered a complete mental breakdown. He ran amok and ahh… killed his family with an axe. Stacked’em neatly in one of the rooms, in the west wing, then he’ya… put both barrels of a shotgun in his mouth. Police ah… they thought it was what the old timers used to call ‘cabin fever’. A kind of claustrophobic reaction which can occur, when people are shut in together, over long periods of time.”

Can you tell me what horror movie this quote is from?

Until next scare –

    I went over to your Killer Yarns site and read through your story, but you haven’t updated it since October. Are you updating it any time soon? I’d love to read more.

    This dream blog is too cool.

    Sandy B.

  • V Boutet

    Ladies, this is a stunning blog. I’d like to see more pictures of all of you in your everyday lives living your dreams. -V

  • Pale rider

    There’s Dread Central at http://www.dreadcentral.com and Fangoria at http://www.fangoria.com!

  • Bob

    What about a list of your top Horror movies of all time and why you like them. I see that you are away from the group but maybe you could post again with an update about what you are doing and the list of your favorite movies? >B

  • After dark

    There’s also the horror guy at http://www.horrorguy.com!

  • Episode on http://www.killeryarns.com that is.

  • Your last episode is October 16th – are you planning on posting more any time soon?

  • Hey Dawnda – there’s also the Boneyard at http://www.theboneyard.org and then I think you would like Mathieu Bauer at http://www.mathieubauer.com. Go check them out and tell us what you think. Maybe you should start a 2nd set or 8 – even though you are on leave from the group?

  • Catherine

    Yes, we miss you too – and your funny stories over wine.

  • Heather

    We miss you too! You need to come over for wine and scary stories ;-)

  • Dawnda

    Thank you all for your feedback and support! I miss you all.

  • Damn. I missed this article before the holiday. These would have been fun to check out before tonight. I was actually searching for some photos to help with my son’s make-up for a ghost – we are whiting his face and darkening the eyes – trying to find an idea for the mouth area – and stumbled upon your site here. My wife had me bookmark it so she can come back and look at it later. Cool idea for a website. Happy Halloween ladies. Gotta go make my son a ghost. It’s definitely Stephen King.

  • Bev

    I love these websites and how perfect for Halloween. I even got an idea for a costume and a way to carve my pumpkin. Happy Halloween everyone!!

  • Caroline

    I’m sure one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post (because you all seem to write so well). I am always left trying to decide who had the best post for the week. I like this post. When I blogged all the time, along with watching the new comments, I was always checking out the rss feed registrations and watching them grow (or shrink sometimes) in readers – do you do that? This is such an excellent site – better than mine.

  • Edward Lane

    Ladies you have a very nice blog here and some pretty great writers. I’m an instant fan. It will be interesting to see how much all of you change as this blog gets more and more fans. Or, who leaves because dreaming becomes too difficult. – Ed

  • Interesting that there are horror websites like this on the Internet beyond renting movies. I would have never thought to go look for them, especially the idea of reading a scary story online, but then do I really want to sit at my desk at work and get freaked out?
    OK, the people I work with already do that so maybe it isn’t such a stretch…

  • Max (The Drunken Severed Head)

    Thank you, Dawnda, for the great words–

    I know that October, the Halloween season, must be a special month for you as it is me. Beast witches of the season!

    “8 Women Dream” is inspiring.

  • Carl V

    I found your blog in a directory of horror blogs. I didn’t quite get why your blog came up, I thought it must have been a typo, but now that I am here and reading the post I see why. This is a cool blog, I bookmarked you before realizing Dawnda here has left the group, bummer. Good luck with your dreams girls. Carl

  • Hey good stuff – keep up the good work! I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    A definite great read.

  • Kim

    I pulled your name for commenting and I’m sorry to say that I haven’t read any Killer Yarns stories because I’m a wimp and get creeped out easily and they scare me but this post was a great idea finding the top horror blogs and you’re doing such a great job posting keep up the great work!

    (run on sentence)

  • I’m so glad I found this site ladies. You are going to be famous girls with this idea. Artistic site, entertaining posts and beauty – a killer combo. Keep up the good work. Dawnda, have you read Robert McCammon’s Boy’s Life? You should think about reviewing your favorite horror books and movies every now and then here. That quote is definitely The Shining by Stephen King, where the book was better than the movie.
    Bill

  • Catherine, Site Admin

    Oh and by the way, my guess for the movie quote is The Shining…

  • Thanks so much for the mention, Dawnda, and best of luck with your own writing!

  • Well, thanks for the kind shout-out, Dawnda! And best of luck — to all of you — with achieving your dreams! I’ll have to check out the rest of your blog now, as well as Killer Yarns — which sounds delicious!

    For those of you considering a career in horror writing, I’d recommend joining the Horror Writers Association (HWA). Even if you do not have professional credits, there are ways to join as either Associate or Affiliate members. That will put you in close proximity to top horror writers in the field — of particular interest to you might be talented ladies like Sarah Langan, Deborah LeBlanc, Alexandra Sokoloff, and Ellen Datlow (the preeminent editor of horror short fiction today). I’ve been a member for 2+ years now (and am the current Secretary) and have found the networking opportunities invaluable.

    Again, heartfelt thanks for the kind mention ~ and the very best in your creative endeavors!

  • Hello sister horror fan! I love all scary shit. These sites are fun, but I notice we are waiting for your next Killer Yarns installment. That moving eye is the best. I think I have to download it. Thanks for list of sites. I shared them with my roommate. Have a nice day scary lady.

  • Veronica

    I scrolled down to the bugs bunny flick…it was great.

  • Catherine, Site Admin

    I was brave enough to go to those websites and I can even look at that eye, but I will let you know if I have nightmares tonight. I can relate to the guy hiding behind the couch with wine one – he sounds like my kind of guy – maybe we should date.
