*What does “A Sophisticated Anthology of the Unknown” mean?

Back when Alan Moore was writingThe Saga of the Swamp Thing comic books, the phrase “Sophisticated Suspense” appeared on the cover. It was a remarkably succinct and accurate description of the stories within. Characters were complex and compelling. Plots challenged readers to delve further into their darkest fears. Those stories stand to this day as a great model of the kind of shows that Ghoulish Delights aims to produce. That's the why the company uses the word “sophisticated” to describe its work.

The horror anthology appears in every conceivable medium: magazines (Weird Tales), radio (Suspense), comic books (Tales from the Crypt) television (The Twilight Zone), and movies (Creepshow). There is a tradition in presenting tales of terror in a format that includes several unique stories and distinct points of view, each of which can stand on its own but collectively come together to create a larger sense of the world’s mysteries. We value diversity both in the content of stories and in the voices that tell them.

Horror is an important genre. We constantly push forward from the safety of what is known into shadowy worlds of uncertainty, a journey that is both exciting and terrifying. Enjoying stories about such journeys is a way to practice being courageous. In sharing our fears, we can overcome them. In fact, we can be delighted by them.
