The Horror Honeys: Friday Favorites ~ Body Horror!

Friday Favorites ~ Body Horror!

Body Horror is a very special sub-section of the horror genre, and the fans that love it, well, they love it for different reasons. For your Head Honey, the most intriguing thing about body horror is the "point of no return" - no matter how much corrective surgery, physical and psychological therapy the victim undergoes after being rescued, nothing in the world will be able to repair the trauma inflicted on them. Body horror is the kind of horror that makes you cringe, makes you wonder if that itch on your shoulder might be something other than just an itch, makes you swallow a little harder during certain scenes... and that's why we love it. 

Whether the change is brought about by a personal choice, or a mishap in a lab, an old wive's tale come to life, or the most natural of human activities, you never see body horror coming. But it will leave you forever changed. This week, we celebrate the kind of horror that turns US into the things that go bump in the night.
