Haunted Habitats
Watching The Others the other night and part of Rosemary's Baby yesterday got me thinking about why I have so much more interest in the haunted house subgenre than other cultural manifestations of horror.

In addition to having lived in old and possibly "haunted" houses, as I mentioned in a previous entry, the historical dimension to haunted spaces intrigues me.

I had a lot of fun with Kim at the Winchester Mystery House -- Skylar would love it, now, I bet -- back in our California days.

My friend Annalee wrote a piece on the house around the time of our visit that does a nice job of saying what I would otherwise try, haltingly, to articulate here. As Frederic Jameson famously put it, "History is what hurts."

Happy Halloween. . .
