It’s the dead of winter and a sleet storm has just coated the Tavern in ice. Every blade of grass is frozen solid on the lawn. Arctic winter days put me in the mood to revisit Carpenter’s The Thing and Kubrick’s The Shining. I want to grab a blanket and read Tim Lebbon’s White, one of the scariest novella’s I’ve ever encountered.

But before I delve into cozy, fireside terrors, I have to let loose this roundup that’s been barking all night for some fresh meat…

It has been a groin kick of a week for me, leading to a Sunday where all I want to do is lay on the couch and watch Charles In Charge (while trying to ignore the fact that in real life Charles started banging one of the girls he babysat). But there truly is no rest for the wicked, and I try to make the weekly rounds actually weekly.  So before I go back to sleep let’s launch into the latest in the ‘sphere!

YEAR-END ROUND-UP: THE BEST AND WORST HORRORS OF 2012

This Sunday, we’re putting the final nails in the coffin of 2012 by doing the Tavern of Terror’s very first year end roundup. So, simply enough, we’re picking out what we liked best for this year in horror as well as what we thought were the most noxious of runny dumps.

This isn’t the easiest thing for an old soul like me to do, by the way. While I am a hardcore horrorhound, I am also as old school as Archie Bunker. I prefer the entertainment of yesterday and admittedly pass on watching most of today’s mainstream schlock. There are also some that I simply haven’t gotten around to yet, seeing how I am employed and all. But I have delved in just enough to be a blowhard with my own opinions as any blogger should.

So let’s start our look back on 2012, the year that was supposed to end it all but of course didn’t. (Thanks for nothing, Mayans).
