Editorial: An In Depth Look At Why TV’s SCREAM QUEENS Matters by Leonel VHS


Lately I’ve been reveling in the fact that horror has made a huge resurgence on the small screen within the last few years. Back when I was a youngster in the late eighties, horror had a small presence on television, but albeit in a different form. Most of what was on the air then were […]
