Welcome to 2017 on HorrorAddicts.net! We have a great year in store with new authors wanting to kidnap us, and of course our next season! I know Emz has some exciting things planned, and it is going to be a fun season.
We start the year out with Vile Vacations, this month will be full of vacations that were scary, whether to haunted locations, or vacation destinations known for the scary stories. These are true and fiction stories with the Vile Vacation theme.

January’s theme is The Seven Deadly Sins.
Seven little words that can judge, condemn, even damn but…can also be meditative points of introspection giving us a clye to our innermost drives, needs and secret desires…do you dare dive in and explore, write, re-envision them? Claim them even?
We all have our faults but can we really sew our greatest one up in a tidy bundle from a simple list of words? The ‘Seven Deadlies’ have become rote for some or are even unknown to others, a source of secret shame for many or…a chameleon’s deadly dance for others still as we realize we have one, own it, only to sometimes be overtaken by yet another later in life or another…in a litany of faults that few (if any) ever escape.
So…which is yours? Tell us in the comments below, write about it, play with it! Maybe you will be inspired after seeing and reading some different representations and not just the usual bare and spare single-word list!
An allegorical image depicting the human heart subject to the seven deadly sins, each represented by an animal (clockwise: toad = avarice; snake = envy; lion = wrath; snail = sloth;pig = gluttony; goat = lust; peacock = pride).
From Dante’s Inferno, a slightly more descriptive list than the usual single words. Which one is yours?
- luxuria (lechery/lust)
- gula (gluttony)
- avaritia (avarice/greed)
- acedia (sloth/discouragement)
- ira (wrath)
- invidia (envy)
- superbia (pride)

that it was a super hard task to choose our new theme song band.
Some of the bands were so good, we asked them to be featured next season
and they will be reaching your earbuds soon.
However, the HorrorAddicts.net staff narrowed it down to
the song we thought best emulated the show’s spirit.
HorrorAddicts.net is proud to announce our newest theme song band:
