Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction and Film

I've been meaning to check out Night of the Demon, which is a (very loose) adaptation of M.R. James' classic ghost story "Casting the Runes."

Speaking of which, I've been reading James Hynes' Publish and Perish, a set of three satirical horror stories set in the academic world. The third is a modern take-off on "Casting the Runes." I'm looking forward to it.

I've also been reading The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton. They're pretty good ghost stories in the classical mode.
Egg, I dreamed I was old.
