The Allure of EVIL

Although I regrettably didn't have the opportunity to participate in it this time around, the formidable League of Tana Tea Drinkers has put together another group blogging effort that's a damn fine read, and worth a look.

This time around, they're talking about exactly what it is that attracts us to certain evil characters in horror. Gloomy Sunday has a "bad boys" theory sure to make feminists cringe. And Now the Screaming Starts pitches in a classic Hollywood legend about Bela Lugosi and Clara Bow. Unspeakable Horror gets turned on by Tim Curry in Legend. Muir's Reflections on Film and TV reflects upon Vin Diesel's Riddick anti-hero. And The Groovy Age of Horror wonders why certain kinds of evil attract us and not others.

Check it out. And while you're at it, you can also check out the League's last group post on evil kids in horror, to which I did contribute.
