“Horror is a Soothing Genre”

Longreads has an interview with author Sady Doyle on horror, true crime and gender. “I find that horror is almost a soothing genre, because it’s very validating. It’s often not that far [removed] from reality. It uses dream logic to tell its story, but it’s still one of the few genres that’s really upfront about how scary it is to be a woman and how much violence goes into a woman’s life.”
