THE STATE OF THE GENRE: The Grinning Skull

My latest "State of the Genre" column is up at Fear Zone. This time, I discuss humor and horror, and how I don't understand why some people think they don't mix. Check it out if you're so inclined!

Can you imagine a world without YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN? Or Peter Jackson's DEAD ALIVE? What would FRIGHT NIGHT be without Peter Vincent and Evil Ed? What if Sam Raimi had never made EVIL DEAD 2 and ARMY OF DARKNESS because someone told him he couldn't mix the funny with the scary? We would all be the poorer for it. Plus, a world where GHOSTBUSTERS never happened is a world that doesn't deserve to exist.
