This time around there’s a lot of surrealism.
There’s also classic slasher horror, such as an instalment from the Friday the 13th franchise, and new horror, like the 2018 horror anthology The Field Guide to Evil.
You’ll also find Stanley Kubrick again— he’s always sneaking around, isn’t he?
There’s clown horror, witchy horror, and downright queasy weird horror, too.
Some of you will even find a bit of obscurity.

Edition #18’s here. Who needs any more rambling?
Take a look at these gruesome, awesome, and visually compelling cinematic parallels. And, as always, look out for the next edition— there’s so much more to come! You can find the previous edition here.
