My Horror Manifesto

WED // AUG 07

S.A. Bradley is here to remind you that you used to love horror movies...and you secretly still do!

Horror does not deserve your shame! Join S.A. Bradley (author of 'Screaming for Pleasure: How Horror Makes You Happy and Healthy' and host of the "Hellbent for Horror" podcast) on a fun and energetic riff on one of our oldest and most beautiful storytelling forms: the horror genre. Bradley shows how the genre is tailor-made for allegory and metaphor, and how it allows us to have a safe “handshake” with our shadow-selves.

S.A. Bradley is the host of the popular podcast Hellbent for Horror, exploring all things horror across books, film, comics, and music.
Bradley has loved being scared by over 1,600 horror films. He’s turned his passion into purpose, sharing his expansive knowledge on dozens of podcasts and in anthologies like Medium Chill and EvilSpeak magazine.
Hellbent For Horror was a 2017 and 2018 Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards nominee for Best Multi-Media Horror Site and was described by director Guillermo Del Toro as “Well researched, articulate and entirely absorbing.”
Bradley’s first book, Screaming for Pleasure: How Horror Makes You Happy and Healthy, is a thrilling ride through the horror genre and its intense effect on every generation. He shows how you can be enriched by horror.
Prior to becoming a champion of horror, Bradley served in the U.S. Air Force and was a firefighter. He now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and their dog, Fiona, where they can often be found meditating in a death metal mosh pit or dancing around a Northern Californian fire pit drum circle.
