Horror is a word borrowed by many -- to sell product, to impart strange brands of morality, to create a community of fans, and to deeply scare as many people as possible. Whether or not a comfortable genre tag, or a catch-all for the extremes of emotive story-telling, it has proven a resilient and ever-changing designation.
These pages are our tribute to the horror genre, in many of its manifestations. We have a history of it over the last eight hundred years, detailed looks at particular artists and works, and a tribute to the specifically Australian version.
For convenience we have divided the topic into a number of subsidiary pages, as listed below. Articles about the modern genre that don't fit into these categories can be found down the left hand column.
