“Danse Macabre” and Christian Horror Fiction
Gordan & Joyce Runyan
“We enter the dark and slimy world of Stephen King’s chosen genre by discussing his book on the topic, Danse Macabre. Why is Horror fiction even a thing to begin with? What makes it work? What keeps audiences coming back for more, and for gore?
Our “hot take” on the topic is this: Horror fiction is a genre that can and should be used to the glory of Jesus Christ and the advancement of His Kingdom. We know that’s the opposite of what Evangelicals have always said. That’s why we get paid the big bucks.”
