Halloween is nearly upon us, Coventry. You know what that means, don’t you? Yep, aside from an abundance of sugary treats and snacks to feast upon come October 31, it’s also the time of year when you can enjoy the best film genre of all: horror.
Horror films are perplexing little beasts. No matter how much they make us jump, we can’t pull our eyes away from them. Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th… what’s not to love?
