My Go-To Halloween Film

Halloween seems to be the only thing I like about autumn – part of the appeal behind this time of year, for my age group in particular, is watching Halloween films. Whether you’d prefer a horror like The Conjuring or something more nonchalant, it adds to the feel of Halloween. I am a huge horror…

The Changing Nature of Halloween Costumes

The evenings get colder, the leaves turn brown, and the smell of Pumpkin Spiced lattes is in the air – autumn is officially here, meaning Halloween is right around the corner.

My introduction to the Gothic

I’m a big fan of the Gothic; literature, art, movies, architecture, you name it. The creatives who cultivated this interest from a relatively young age were filmmaker Tim Burton, and by extension, Helena Bonham Carter, and author Marcus Sedgwick. Many people are familiar with the work of the former two, but, in my opinion, the…

What your Halloween costume says about you (and other stupid assumptions)

As the trees shed their leaves and the days grow shorter, there’s a quiet anticipation for the spookiest day of the year. Yes, people, it’s the most wonderful time of the year – Halloween. It means we’ll be witnessing this year’s additions to the pop-culture pantheon. From Princess Leia to your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, Britney…
