Stephen King once said, in the original foreword to Night Shift, that “the great appeal of horror fiction…is that it serves as a rehearsal for our own deaths.” With Halloween around the corner, scary stories are everywhere – on TV, on the bookshelves at your local indie, under your bed – but why do we get so excited about stories that give us goosebumps that we turn into something resembling brain-hungry zombies?

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly released exclusive on-set photos from the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children movie. In The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Leah Gallo takes us behind the scenes to show how the Ransom Riggs' photographs were crafted into a book, which then Tim Burton turned into a movie.
Tim Burton's first step into the Peculiar world was with his collaborator and concept artist, Dermot Power. Powers' early artwork reminded us of all the wonderful fan art we received during our #5PeculiarYears contest and we just had to share with you.

It has truly been a super(natural) summer thanks, in large part, to My Best Friend’s Exorcism and Stranger Things. These two pop culture sweethearts are truly a match made in hell. They have given us an eerily similar glimpse at the world of demons and aliens with an ace 80’s twist. They both are heartwarming stories about friendship that scared the living daylights out of us. Maybe most importantly though - they both would have killer soundtracks. Thankfully, the folks over at Stranger Things have promised us a soundtrack is lurking right beyond the next corner, but what we MBFE + ST geeks are really waiting for is the perfect 80’s mixtape that combines both.
Wait no more.
Tons of Spoilers Ahead.
