Happy Bloody Birthday, Behind the Couch
|Cake by Emma/Photo by me.|
Thanks so much to everyone who has swung by. While this year has been slightly quieter than usual on the blogging front - mainly due to another Argento related project I’ve been working on – I still found time to dander down Elm Street with a movie marathon, swoon over Vincent Price, talk about Italian horror cinema with a pop star, and loiter in graveyards with prematurely buried maidens…
There were of course also the usual reviews of old favourites, new favourites, obscure gems and obscure trash, as well as chats with fairytale experts and authors of creepy poetry for children. Behind the Couch was also invited to join LOTT D and get nerdy over horror with its lovely members.
This year not only marked the 30th anniversary of Dario Argento’s Tenebrae, but also my (hopefully endearingly) bumbling foray into the world of podcasting; the results of which included helping to put together Paracinema’s first podcast (on the music of John Carpenter) and chats about Italian horror with Aaron (The Death Rattle) Duenas and Jon (Shocks to the System) Towlson, which you can listen to here and here.
Away from blogging and podcasting I continued to contribute to publications such as Paracinema and Exquisite Terror - which, if you’re not familiar with, are really worth checking out – as well as embarking on a Photo A Day For A Year project.
Thanks again for stopping by, reading my scribblings, leaving comments and inspiring conversations about all things horror. Here’s to another year!
