Blogtober Day 7: Anthologies

One of the many things I love about horror is the amount of anthologies.

Blogtober Day 2: Lucifer

I started watching Lucifer shortly before The Sandman came out on Netflix – it wasn’t intentional, it had just been sitting on my ‘want to watch’ for such a long time, and once I’d finished what I was watching before that, I realised Lucifer was finally available into it’s entirety to watch on Netflix, comparedContinue reading “Blogtober Day 2: Lucifer”
