This is cool. I sorta forgot about CHUD. Used to visit them all the time back in 99.

This is nice. I have, for some reason, no interest whatsoever in watching horror films, but I find reading about them inexplicably fascinating.

Then don't come crying to me when you get eaten by one.

Huh, no article on "Final Girl"? (yet?)

I like this - especially the horror movie that he's writing as he goes. From Lesson 3:
...looking up at the burning library he quips, “Well, I don’t normally support book burning, but in this case…” Ah ha ha. They all laugh as we pull back into a crane shot and Harry Manfredini plays us into the final credits crawl. The end.
I'd watch that film.

Also, something weird is going on - the link to Lesson 4 and Lesson 5 don't go to the same place, but they have almost the same content - both say Lesson 5 The Jokester. The link to Lesson 5 has screwed up formatting but the right pictures. The Link to Lesson 4 has better formatting but no pictures (copy paste problems?) And I'll never learn about the guy who knows things!

Oh, weird, muddgirl. Thanks for the heads up. Those were fine when I looked at them a few days ago. I'll drop them a line.

They just did a complete site redesign a few weeks ago, well after that series began. Odds are something didn't migrate properly...

Looks like they've fixed lesson 4.
