Creepy Catalog is a digital magazine covering television and cinema with a primary focus on the following genres: horror, sci-fi, fantasy, crime and arthouse. Our editorial is steeped in academic rigor, but it packs a punch — we write in quick, digestible way with a plethora of visuals to enhance the reading experience.

Creepy Catalog writers are meticulous researchers and culture vultures.

In terms of editorial standards, we have a peer-review process of review for all articles published on the site and we’re constantly reviewing and updating older articles to improve them as new information becomes available.
