[Editorial] A Note on the Current State of Horror Television to All Our Twelve Year Readers

    Man, it truly is wild thinking about how well off younger horror fans are. I too would wander off at Video City and marvel at the awesome box art of the horror VHS.. I think it took till 7th grade for my parents to go weak and finally let me rent the good stuff on my own (they put me on the account w a no ratings ban, there was no porn at our small town store) and I started with Cemetery Man because the trailer had accompanied an action movie my dad and I watched.

    I will always be thankful for Joe Bob Briggs.

    Thankfully, when I was a little kid I wasn’t restricted from watching horror films. Sorry that you had to sit through TCM 2, though. Damn, that movie is horrible lol. So happy that you mentioned Supernatural on this list. It’s still one of my favorite shows on TV right now, even if it is suffering from the “close to running out of ideas, too many seasons” syndrome. Same thing happened with Charmed. That seems to happen to all my favorite shows on the WB/CW. Anyway, great article, man.

      Thanks. I was really in love with Supernatural until season six began. But for those first five years it was great.

    i have to call foul on this article. first off, it’s not like our generation has a plethora of quality horror shows to choose from like this article might suggest. true blood has gone off the deep end and the above mentioned american horror story has taken a nose dive with asylum. my favorite show of all time is dexter, which admittedly has horror tropes, and supernatural is a worthy addition to horror tv but what this article is insinuating is far from accurate or ideal
