Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction and Film
Hmm. I wouldn't describe it as a homage--except perhaps in the sense that all such stories are riffing on Dante's work, in some way.
When I think of actual homages to Dante, I think of things like Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's Inferno
and its sequel, Escape From Hell
An illusion--with intelligence! A malignant vision, with a will of pure evil!
