Author Glen Robinson asks about Christian Horror

In a short post to his blog, author Glen Robinson poses the question is there such a thing as Christian horror?

Since it happens to be the name of this here blog, I’d have to say certainly there is such a thing.

But just as Gandalf asked Bilbo Baggins, what do you mean, good morning? it is reasonable to ask what one means by Christian horror. Horror as a viable genre for Christian writers and movie makers? Horror literature and films a reasonable environment to explore Christian themes, to interact with Christian iconography, to pose theological questions, to examine the world through the lens of a Christian worldview? Like Bilbo, we have to reply, “all of them at once.”
