Elsa Lanchester, Herself (Interview And Book Giveaway)

It’s hard to know when imagery so striking, so wonderfully eerie, so utterly iconoclastic as the one presented by Elsa Lanchester as The Bride of Frankenstein, first becomes embedded in one’s memory.

The previous year is now weeks behind us, but it’s taken me quite some time to process. I feel that for many of us, 2017 was a truly liminal experience: a year of stepping through thresholds of discomfort and sanctity, and diving deep within each of ourselves to find a truer version of what we […]

Stacked: June 2017

image via Crystal lee Lucas Sarah Hunger by Roxane Gay  I feel strange writing that I was “excited” to read this. It’s a rough read. It’s not just uncomfortable, it is intensely painful.

A few months ago Sam invited the staff writers to pen some personal pieces for Haute Macabre.
