Fifth in a series of posts reviewing the stories in Richard Dalby’s 1992 anthology Horror For Christmas. #TheChristmasThatDrippedBlood #horrorforchristmas ⁣ ⁣ "The Crown Derby Plate" by Marjorie Bowen⁣ ⁣ Easily the best story in Horror For Christmas so far, and the first to provoke anything stronger than an eye roll. This is a ghost story in the M.R. James tradition, but where James's antiquaries tend to be drawn to the supernatural by peculiar relics and mysterious books, Bowen's forthright heroine Martha Pym has her sights on a single china plate.⁣ ⁣ Thirty years ago at an isolated house on the Essex marshes, Miss Pym purchased a Crown Derby dinner setting, unaccountably missing one plate. Having returned to the area, and hearing that the house has new owners, Miss Pym resolves to pop in and see if the misplaced item has turned up - and if it might be available to purchase.⁣ ⁣ The house is an uninviting place; even its fruit trees are grim: "their crucified branches, rotting under the great nails that held them up, looked like the skeletons of those who had died in torment." Then there's the new owner, a decrepit and pathetic old thing given to ominous mutterings that the no-nonsense Miss Pym contrives to take at face value.⁣ ⁣ The reader, who has presumably read a few ghost stories before, has an idea what is happening here. The suspense - and humour - comes from Miss Pym's obliviousness: we are waiting for the spectral shoe to drop. "The Crown Derby Plate" is brief, skilfully told and provides a gratifying shiver: a classic ghost story.⁣ ⁣ 🌲 How Christmassy is it? "Martha Pym said that she had never seen a ghost and that she would very much like to do so, 'particularly at Christmas, for you can laugh as you like, that is the correct time to see a ghost.'"⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #horrorstories #horrorfiction #horroranthology #horror #christmasstories ##bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #books #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksofig #booksbooksbooks #libraryofbookstagram #booksofinstagram #instabooks #igreads #literature #readersofinstagram

Finally caved and subscribed to @hulu just to watch Pooka! @blumhouse latest installment of its holiday themed anthology series Into The Dark...and it did not disappoint. It’s off-the-wall absurd, and I loved every minute. - - - - #horror #horrormovies #pooka #intothedark #horrorseries #christmashorror #holidayhorror #ilovehorror #instahorror #hulu #blumhouse #horrorfan #anthology #horrorstories #horrorjunkie #goth #christmascarol #horrorshow #horrorlover #igdaily #supernatural #naughty #horrorgeek #demons #horroranthology #igdaily #witches #horrorfamily #horrornerd @nacho_vigalondo
Finished this Christmas themed horror anthology from my @night_worms box and while I felt it was pretty light on the scares, overall the stories were well written and enjoyable. I do think I was expecting the stories to feature more traditional Christmas tropes, like Santa, elves, reindeer, or Krampus (really?!? no Krampus?!?) but instead the Christmasness comes from the stories taking place *near* Christmas (there are a couple creepy toy tales though!) . So while not as scary as anticipated, nor as Christmassy (is that a thing?) as I had hoped, I still enjoyed the collection. Some stories were properly creepy, some were terribly sad, and a couple were even pretty funny (one I'm not sure if that was the intent, but funny nonetheless). The standouts for me were Absinthe and Ants by Kelly Armstrong, Home by Tim Lebbon, Honor Thy Mother by Angela Slatter, and The Hangman's Bride by Sarah Pinbrough (this one more so because it would make a great novel, so much more potential there!) . . . . . . #nwscaryxmasreviews #hark !theheraldangelsscream #creepychristmas #christmasbooks #christmasreading #christmashorror #horrorfiction #horrorbooks #horroranthology #nightwormsbox #averyscarychristmas #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookgram #readergram #readmore #readmorebooks #readallthebooks #bookreview

Fourth in a series of posts reviewing the stories in Richard Dalby’s 1992 anthology Horror For Christmas. #TheChristmasThatDrippedBlood #horrorforchristmas ⁣ ⁣ "Tarnhelm" by Hugh Walpole⁣ ⁣ This one has a classic set-up. A young boy, neglected by his bohemian parents, is passed around the family until he winds up one winter at Faildyke Hall, a grotesque edifice inhabited by his father's elderly brothers, sweet Uncle Constance and creepy Uncle Robert. The Hall has its peculiarities, in particular a forbidden tower where Uncle Robert conducts "experiments". Never a good sign.⁣ ⁣ Uncle Robert turns out to have gotten his hands on a "tarnhelm", a Wagnerian relic that allows its wearer to shape-shift, in this instance into the form of what sounds like a bedraggled labrador. Like all who play with elements beyond their ken, Uncle Robert has been slowly corrupted by the helmet’s power. ⁣ Nothing unexpected happens in "Tarnhelm", but it is a well constructed and enjoyable tale. Walpole was a bestseller in his day, although his critical reputation waxed and waned. Walpole's pal and fellow mostly-forgotten writer J.B. Priestley claimed Walpole occupied literary territory somewhere between Trollope and Dostoyevsky, which is not something you hear every day.⁣ ⁣ 🌲 How Christmassy is it? The denouement plays out on Christmas Eve, but otherwise not at all.⁣ ⁣ #horrorstories #horrorfiction #horroranthology #horror #christmasstories ##bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #books #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksofig #booksbooksbooks #libraryofbookstagram #booksofinstagram #instabooks #igreads #literature #readersofinstagram

*Review Post* 5⭐ . 'Hark the Herald Angel's Scream' is a Christmas themed, horror anthology, consisting of 18 short stories. These tales, edited by Christopher Golden, are written by bestselling, acclaimed authors that aim to prove that there is still darkness lurking during the Yuletide season. This is a fun mix of stories that ping pong from heartbreaking, to quirky, to hilarious, to twisted. Some get straight to the scares, where others are more of a slow burn, which showcase each authors individuality and unique writing styles that set them apart from one another. Each story offers a series of macabre and fiendish delights that will remind the reader that horror is suppose to be fun. If you are looking for some great Christmas time horror tales that are told by a bunch of amazing horror authors, sitting around the table at Christmas dinner, then this book is for you! . @night_worms . #NWSCARYXMASREVIEWS #nightworms #subscriptionbox #promotehorror #thehauntedfaereviews #ladiesofhorrorfiction #harktheheraldangelsscream #horroranthology #joshmalerman #bookphotography #bookpics #photographedit #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstagramcommunity #bookstagramunites #bookstagrammersunite #bookstagramfamily #bookstagramfriends #bookstagramhorror #supportsmallbusiness #supportsmallshops

Holiday Horrors #6 : All The Creatures Were Stirring (2018). The best parts of this anthology were the wrap-around story taking place in the theatre, and the part entitiled "In a twinkling". That part gets 8 Santa hats out of 10, whilst the film as a whole gets 6. #allthecreatureswerestirring #christmashorror #horror #horrormovies #horrorfilms #horroranthology #christmas

Third in a series of posts reviewing the stories in Richard Dalby’s 1992 anthology Horror For Christmas. #TheChristmasThatDrippedBlood #horrorforchristmas ⁣ ⁣ "The Sinister Inn" by F. S. Smythe⁣ ⁣ Two Englishman are on a cross-country skiing trip through the Swiss Alps. On Christmas Eve a storm blows in and they seek shelter at a sinister inn. The sinister couple who run the sinister inn proceed to behave in a - let’s just say it - sinister manner. During the evening sinister noises are heard, and as the sinister storm rages outside, the two men are forced to confront the sinister inn's sinister secret. (Incest.)⁣ ⁣ In his perfunctory introduction to Horror For Christmas, editor Richard Dalby offers the commonplace that "horror literature continues to reflect the primitive fears extant in our society". "The Sinister Inn" certainly reflects a concern with vaguely eugenicist notions of blood and breeding. The innkeepers are the product of a shallow gene pool, with the result that their son was born deficient, and therefore, in Smythe's imagining, monstrous. The young man is depicted as a literally foaming-at-the-mouth lunatic - pitiable, perhaps, but never to be considered fully human.⁣ ⁣ 🌲 How Christmassy is it? Not especially, although the implication is that the occasion amplifies the family's tragedy.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #horrorstories #horrorfiction #horroranthology #horror #christmasstories ##bookstagram #bookstagrammer #book #books #bibliophile #bookish #bookworm #booknerd #bookaholic #bookaddict #booksofig #booksbooksbooks #libraryofbookstagram #booksofinstagram #instabooks #igreads #literature #readersofinstagram

25 Days of Xmas Horror Day 6: All the Creatures were Stirring (2018). A fun lil Xmas Anthology. None of the stories were mind blowing but a couple had really kool premises. With that said none of the stories weren’t unwatchable either. I had fun with this one. I give the creators credit for putting together some interesting ideas even though this isn’t gonna blow your stocking up this Xmas its still worth a watch. #allthecreatureswerestirring #horror #25daysofxmashorror #horroranthology
