Headed to the mountains (of madness), hipsters!
Regular postings will resume in slightly more than a week.
April is a strange month for horror fans. It is exactly half a year away from October--the month in which our beloved genre gains some semblance of mainstream authenticity--and its major holiday is April Fool's Day, a day dedicated to mirth and Tom Foolery. Not exactly the stuff of horror--1986's and 2008's films of that title notwithstanding. As such, the blogosphere was overrun with a pair of different memes this past month--The 30 Day Horror Challenge and The Cinematic Alphabet--which proved both fun and interesting when enjoyed one at a time, but turned into overkill when all of your favorite blogs were doing the same thing. So this month's issue of Spatter Analysis will be 100% free of Challenges, Alphabets, and Practical Jokes. What it will have is the same quality content you have come to expect, from a range of very talented and diverse writers who have taken their love of the genre to the interwebs. Who needs an overpriced magazine? We've got the goods right here, and all it will cost you is the amount of time it takes you to make with the clickity-click. So click on, hipsters!
As always, I'm just one man with only so much free time. Meaning that there are way too many great blogs out there for me to keep track of them all. If you have a blog post, article, review, or frightening prom story that you are particularly proud of and would like to submit for inclusion in an upcoming issue of Spatter Analysis, just e-mail me the link, and I'll be glad to give it a look-see. There is no restriction on content, only on timestamp--meaning that the post must have been made during the current month in order to be considered for the next month's issue. May's issue is just around the corner...so direct all submissions to JonnyxMetro[at]hotmail[dot]com.
NOTE: None of the articles below are hosted on my blog, and the authors retain sole ownership. The links are provided here without explicit permission in many cases, because, as far as I know, linking with proper attribution does not go against proper blogger etiquette. Consider this the Midnite Media equivalent of an award, only rather than be awarded for your blog overall, it's for a specific post. You know what that means, don't you? More chances to win! But, if for whatever reason you would like the link to your post removed, just let me know and it will be dropped faster than an American Idol contestant with a sex tape scandal in her past.
