The popularity that horror fiction enjoyed during the 1970s and 1980s came to a stunning halt in the early 1990s.

The narrator finally realizes that the problem with grown people is that they rush around all the time without knowing where they truly want to be and without enjoying the journey at all. An earlier version of this article appeared back in 2012. The majority of these were collected as Fairytales of Gold (1989). “Feel Free” (1980) is also of particular interest. The best label for Star Wars may be "science fantasy," a subgenre that blends elements of sci-fi and the supernatural.

The guide then returns to their camp unexpectedly and behaves quite unnaturally, and in due course we realize that it is not the guide at all but a duplicate created by the Wendigo. The films chosen invite discussion on a mass-market product's ability to convey, via sub texts and sub agendas, serious socio-political criticism.
