Hold on to your butts! I'm predicting another stellar year for Horror in 2021. I've noticed a significant upward trajectory in my favorite genre for the last two years. Longtime Horror fans will emphatically tell you that Horror has always been this good and maybe it has but I think we're living in a special season of Horror where it's spreading out beyond the niche fanbase and baptizing new converts.
Here's what we can look forward to in the month of January.
