Analysing Horror on emailcollege.com

Hello again!

Something recently came to my attention that I just HAD to share with you all.

A few days ago I signed up for a few online courses on emailcollege.co.uk. (A result of boredom and unemployment!) One of the courses was Analysing Horror Stories. This course focuses on several authors, a few of them being Clive Barker, Stephen King and yes, H P Lovecraft. Here is a list of the course sections, including Fear, Nightmares and Religious Themes.
All courses are free, lessons are sent daily around midnight and a certificate is provided on completion of the course. I have not yet completed said course, but so far there’s been a lot of focus on H P Lovecraft in the Fear and Religious Themes sections.

While this course may amount to little more than a poorly recognised certificate, it’s free and definitely worth a look. As you can see, it is based in the UK, I don’t know how it works with overseas applicants, but for those of you who would like to take a look without signing up, I can email you a few parts so you can see what I mean. It’s free and worth a look.

Or as always, you can message me.


Del Toro’s At The Mountains of Madness

Ladies and gentlemen, greetings from myself, Nyarsetna. For my first post, I’m going to try and revive interest in Guillermo Del Toro – does – At The Mountains Of Madness.

Here is an MTV Movies Blog interview with Guillermo posted in January of this year. So far it seems to be the most recent mention of his pet project.
This is a link to the ATMOM page on the official Del Toro Website.

I found these links lurking in the Forums, they will serve to help catch up on what is pretty much hype at the moment.

Link One and Link Two

Thanks Torwaechter for posting those. On the same thread, Hodgson posted the following link, an extremely positive review of the film script that gave it an A*. Here

If anybody has any links to add, maybe I missed something more recent, please post on the At the Mountains of Madness Movie Update page on the Forums which can be found here.

Or send a message to me.

Thanks for reading!
