I’ve been watching horror movies since I was… well, too young to be watching them. So coming up with my favourite is no easy feat. It’s like trying to decide which one of your kids you love the most. At best, I can tell you what my favourite horror movie is right now. Actually, it makes my top spot most days.
Villains & Monsters Week – My Favourite Horror Villain: Ian Rogers on why he doesn’t go into the woods at night
