Hi.  I'm Caitlin, and this is my blog.

Quite honestly, I have wanted to start a blog for quite some time, I just never knew where to start.  Finally I decided, instead of waiting around for inspiration, I should just bite the bullet and dive right in.  I want to take my passion for the scary and the mysterious and use it to inspire that same passion in others.  By connecting old Gothic works to more contemporary pieces like The Skeleton Key or The Ring, I am hoping to be able to open a revolving door between the two realms.  Those originally interested in the Gothic can discover their favorite elements in modern selections, and those coming from the horror world of today can explore the old works and get a glimpse at where their current favorites were born.

While I often find myself at odds with my peers over this unusual eagerness I have towards the strange, I think this blog will be a perfect platform with which to share my excitement with the world and hopefully attract readers who share in these feelings.  First and foremost though, I’m doing this blog for me.   Because when it comes down to it, if I’m not happy with it or I don’t want to do it, the content will suffer and then no one will be satisfied.  And if no one is satisfied, then what’s the point?

  1. I like the use of multimedia in you blog. Its a a good way of breaking up the prose which, while in-depth, is quite lengthy.

    I have not personally seen The Skeleton Key. So while I do appreciate the detailed synopsis. I think more of the post could be spent on comparing the two pieces. For instance, I particularly liked the comparison between race and haunting in the two works. How exactly are they similar/different though?
