Horror Bound started as a little baby blog over at horrorbound.blogspot.ca but two years ago moved over to an official domain. We devour everything horror from podcasts, movies, books, comics and more!
Horror Bound believes in the positive review of everything - too much time, sweat, and tears goes into making content and we will be respectful of that. We want to create a safe space on the internet where you can read positive reviews of movies and books. Articles that weren't created for the click bait but for the honest to god love of horror.
This is also a space to support and encourage women in horror. Please reach out to us if you are a woman in horror and would like to be spotlighted on this site.
If you would like to contact us to have your project reviewed or to be spotlighted/interviewed please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Would you like to write for Horror Bound? We’re always looking for new writers to join the team as we quickly expand. If you are interested in joining as a writer, please email us at email@example.com with a little blurb about yourself. Also please include an example of an article you have written if you have one :)
