Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what horror is to me. Horror is all of the spooky and scary books and films I’ve read and watched where the protagonist is terrorized by ghosts and ghouls and vampires and monsters. But, horror is also what real people are all capable of behind closed doors. Stephen King said it best, “We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones.”
"Maybe there isn't a way," he said, "Maybe all we can do is wait and hope and endure for as long as we're able. The food will run out. Our bodies will fail. And the vine will do whatever it's going to do." -Scott B. Smith, The Ruins
The Ruins is the perfect summer horror to read while you plan your vacation. Remember to bring the right supplies for whatever adventures you get into.
