Shay Loves Horror

Fueled by Coffee and Horror Movies.



Newest Addition!


I welcome the newest addition to the Shay Loves Horror family, the beautiful baby Aspen! She came into this world early December and has stolen our hearts ever since. And our sleep!

For the next few months uploads are going to be sporadic (nothing new) until we can get a schedule in place, but hopefully this future explorer is just as obsessed with scary movies as we are! Welcome to the family little girl!


Life Update!

I’m here to apologize for being on hiatus for as long as I have been. Seven months ago I became pregnant! My husband and I have put all of our time into getting things ready for the baby arriving in December, as well as me switching jobs, getting a business running and some slight house remodeling.

All that aside, we’ve just about finished, and just in time for Spooky Season!! I plan on coming out of hibernation this month and getting to all the movies I’ve seen this summer as well as some that have been sitting on my list for a while now. Get ready for some horror! 👻💀🦇


The Knowing (2009)

Why Though?

I wanted to write a thing, just to kind of explain why I’m doing this.

The short answer is: I LOVE HORROR!

The longer answer is because it was something that I just really wanted to do, and could see myself enjoying for a long time. I saw a post online somewhere of someone making a movie journal and had an entire notebook of it and I just thought it was the coolest thing! I wanted to make my own and the second I started, it quickly became my favorite hobby. I have almost gone through an entire notebook and am working on my next. I also have a list, pages long, of more movies that I want to watch and write about. I didn’t even think about putting them online until my husband mentioned that other people might like to see my notebook and my opinions on the films, and I knew that if I did, I would want to find a way to keep it handwritten. I just really like the way the journal looks handwritten, as well as it makes it a lot easier to draw pictures with the entries as well.

And so now we are here! I have never done anything like this before, but I love it, and maybe someone else will enjoy it too! 🙂


Horror Movie Blog!


Bare with me as I watch and talk about my favorite movie genre (and honestly favorite genre in general) … HORROR!! Up until about a year ago I would get scared at the smallest things, like when I heard a creak in the house, or when I was told that Renee Zellweger was in a horror movie (lol) but now I literally cannot not get enough of horror movies, scary games, creepypastas, podcasts like NoSleep, Lore, and Darkest Night, YouTube channels like Rob Dyke, Cayleigh Elise, and Mr. Nightmare, and anything else that gives me the creeps.

I love it when the main character goes crazy, when the movie fucks with your reality, the supernatural (less of the slasher shit, unless it’s the Evil Dead), and I have a real soft spot for found footage (whoever said that found footage is dead can eat it). I have some favorites, but my goal is to watch and absorb every part of this genre, from the big box office productions to the C-list filmed-with-my-iPhone-in-my-basement home movies. Let’s binge them all.
