THE PROBLEM

We love them, but horror

classics can often feel remote, and looking up historical, literary, and

cultural references can burn up time

and ruin your experience of a 

masterpiece.

THE SOLUTION

Don't feel lost - be empowered.

We will guide your reading with notes that shed light on the symbolism, history, and different interpretations

of every single story.
