I was asked recently to hop on Huffington Post Live to discuss the rise in horror fare on television. Shock readers know, of course, that horror is huge with The Walking Dead drawing huge ratings and Hannibal pushing the limits of what’s acceptable for “gore on TV.”
That discussion happened this morning and, after the jump, you can watch the segment which includes critic Maureen Ryan, Professor of Psychology Frank Farley Ph.D. and author Stephen Graham Jones.
What begins as a timid chat turns into a thoughtful clash about horror entertainment’s impact on society. Basically, I found myself in the same old arguments that I used to read about growing up as a horror fan in the ’80s. Fun!
