The League of Tana Tea Drinkers has banged together another group post. The topic this time around was suggested by League member and ANTSS fave Absinthe, of the Gloomy Sunday Absinthes (see sidebar).
From the executive summary introduction provided Iloz Zoc (the League's heart and soul):
Why are we attracted to and mesmerized by evil people in horror cinema and novels? Gloomy Sunday's Gothic-romantic, Absinthe, kicks off this round of commentary from the League of Tana Tea Drinkers to explore this question. From Bela Lugosi to Freddy Kruger, the league pokes and prods as only it can do, to unearth the answers, the assumptions, and the contradictions.
Contributors include Absinthe, Chad Helder from Unspeakable Horror, Curt from Groovy Age of Horror, John Kenneth Muir from Reflections on TV/Film, and a little something something from your own favorite blogger.
"Wow, Cory Doctorow posted something?"
No, dammit! I meant me. Sheesh. I'm in there too.
Anywho, pop on over and check it out.
BONUS EVIL HOTNESS, because ANTSS is the blog that freakin' delivers, with a capital DEEE: Check out Top Horror Movies Club, hosted by the lovely and talented Rachel (see their new listing on the sidebar). Rachel and her various co-conspirators dig on horror big time and you owe it to yourself to swing by their blog and see how they do do that voodoo that they do so well.
