Horror - Serial Killer

The Unknown Killer That Inspired Ghostface

Most of the iconic slasher killers of the horror movie genre are based on people that existed or still do. Often, the reality is more morbid than a slasher flick. Here’s one of their stories!

Everyone knows the famous 90s Scream movie franchise, its iconic serial killer, and its name, Ghostface. People could know him from his original franchise with “Do you like scary movies?” or the horror movie parody franchise, Scary Movie.

Daniel Isn’t Real

The real life Freddy Krueger-Jason Voorhees UK slasher killer story!

Favorite Monster Week Starts With Remnants!

What is your favorite Monster? This is the question for this week’s theme of asking the writers of Gothic Bite Magazine questions that well… only they can answer.
