Scooby-Doo taught us that the real monsters in life are human, but that didn’t stop the show’s creators from making the villains into truly terrifying monsters (even if they were costumes). Many true-crime and horror/mystery fans got their love for the genre from Scooby-Doo at a young age. I know I did!
Darkness creeps up behind us everywhere we look. It lives in every part of us. Wherever we go, darkness is there. When the sun sets, when we turn off the lights, and even when we go to sleep, we submit ourselves to the blanket of darkness. But why are we afraid of it? Is it because we fear the unknown, the inescapable, or simply because that’s what we have been taught to fear?
