Written by Jason McDonald, January 21, 2019
Doing horror comedy is a difficult balancing act.  It’s easy to lose your way and wind up with a zany mess that deals exclusively in juvenile humor.  If it goes the other way you can wind up with an unfunny dry mess.  However, when done right, a horror premise can make for an excellent backdrop

Growing up as a kid in the ’90s I never really left the confines of California.  And for the most part that was totally fine.
