October 5 in Goth and Horror History

Clive Barker: The Dark Fantastic - The Authorized Biography, on Amazon

October 5, 1952 - Clive Barker - Writer - Born

Happy 60th birthday to Clive Barker!

I saw him speak at World Horror Con years ago in Eugene, Oregon. One of the funniest speakers I've ever listened to, which surprised me. Anyway, most people probably know him because of Hellraiser, but he's done so many other dark things.

October 2 in Goth and Horror History

Near Dark Blu-Ray, on Amazon

October 2, 1987 - Near Dark - Movie - Released

I need to re-watch this to see if it's held up. At the time, I thought it was the scariest, darkest, most depressing vampire movie I'd seen. Which is a good thing.

A year before I was born, George Romero almost singlehandedly created the zombie genre. Texas Chainsaw Massacre shocked viewers with its violence.
