Today has unquestionably been a day for reflection, for stepping back and taking stock of how we're feeling not just this far in the week but on this day in particular. If you've decided to take the time to log off today for yourself, that is entirely valid and you wouldn't be faulted whatsoever. However, if your self-care routine extends to distractions on ye olde internet, then I have some links that might be of interest:
- The new Halloween is a slasher with an actual message. (The Verge)
- How The Little Stranger uses its ghost story to mask a study in toxic masculinity. (Vox)
- On the female gaze in horror. (VRV Blog)
- How Wynonna Earp has done right by Nicole Haught. (Bella Books)
