|The Ritual - I'm never going out in the woods again!|
But is that really the case? There have been some huge successes in recent years. The movie of The Woman in Black brought Susan Hill's book to the supermarket shelf. Then there is Bird Box by Josh Malerman, or The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey - both books and their movies were incredibly successful. In fact, horror movies seem to be going from strength to strength, no longer relying on the slasher gimmicks of the 90s, but a deeper, more poignant horror, such as Midsommar, or the surreal powerhouse that was Mother.
|Midsommar - wow! Just... wow!|
Hopefully, this is a good sign. I would love to see a horror revival hit the bookshops and resurrect the horror sections. Only one way to find out...
Which means, it's submission time.
