Horrific Recap of December 12 - 18, 2021

Updated: Jun 2, 2022

Welcome back horror fans! How is December treating you? I must say, I'm not feeling the nip at my nose that the month usually brings but that's climate change for you. If you're missing that chill as well, well don't fret because I happen to have a Horrific Recap for you that will chill you to the bone. Let's not waste any time, go on and grab that fright pillow and hold it tight—a little tighter now, as we recap on some of the horror that occurred last week, starting with Sunday, December 12, 2021.


 

December 12 - Sunday



Horror got off to a very sad start last week when it was announced by her son Christopher Rice, that author and horror icon Anne Rice had passed away.


Born in New Orleans in the year 1941, the life that Anne Rice would experience growing up would form the backdrops of her early writing career, starting back in 1976 with the publication of her first novel, Interview with the Vampire. In the 1980s, Anne Rice would continue her writings, expanding on the vampire universe she had created in Interview with the Vampire. What would later become called The Vampire Chronicles, became the platform on which Rice rose in the genre of horror.


In her later writings, Anne Rice would steer away from vampires, focusing more on projects that involved witchcraft, ancient Egypt and some involving fictional tales that took place during the life of Jesus Christ. Still vampires, more specifically the tales of Lestat, are what would make the ultimate legacy of Anne Rice and a well-earned legacy at that. Rice's son Christopher would follow in his mother's footsteps becoming quite the name in horror himself.


Before her passing Anne Rice was still going strong in the genre she has had so much influence in. Earlier this year she was a producer for the television adaptation of her novel, Interview with the Vampire. Anne Rice was 80 when she passed.
