My critical essay, “Home Is Where the Horror Is” has just been published by the academic journal, Studies in Gothic Fiction. I wrote the piece while at Wilkes University for my final MFA project. The article concerns the role of visiting a house of horror, and focuses on the cinematic likes of PSYCHO (1960), THE LEGACY (UK/USA, 1978), DOG SOLDIERS (UK, 2002), and many more.
Thanks to my mentor, Ross Klavan, the man who wrote TIGERLAND (2000), starring Colin Farrell, for his wise counsel in navigating me through the project, my colleague, Dr. Curt Herr for recommending the publication, and for Franz J. Potter and the editorial board for choosing my work. Of course nothing would be accomplished without the constant love and encouragement from Ally Bishop, as well as friends and family.
