I’m over on the Page of Reviews today

Remember when Rick used to be horrified when he used his gun? And because he was, so were we. That’s missing now in The Walking Dead.

Page of Reviews mastermind Adam Shaftoe had been laid low, so he asking me to contribute something.

My piece “Why it’s Hard to Make Horror for TV (or “Why I stopped watching The Walking Dead”)” discusses the topic of horror and what makes something horrifying versus thrilling. I talk about how our tastes in horror have evolved, mostly in response to what we are able to deal with as a society.

And as a jaded society that can get real-time footage from a war zone, what’s left to horrify us? Rather than the extremes, it’s small changes to our assumptions about our everyday life.

Stop on my and give it a read!
