At this point, not only have horror fans totally embraced the infamous Germanic holiday demon known as Krampus [thanks in part to eye-opening articles like these, thank you very much], but popular culture has also managed to catch up with the Krampus Kraze… but in the process, the monstrous hell-spawned punisher of naughty children might […]

Japanese anime has proven to be a very flexible medium — especially when it comes to animated violence and gore. That may explain why the horror genre has found a nice little niche within the anime domain, as opposed to western animation.
