The End is Near

The End is Near

This is not the easiest article I've ever had to write. On June 15th, 2012, the site's 13th birthday, Classic-Horror.com will cease updating. We will continue publishing biweekly reviews up until that point (on Fridays instead of our usual Mondays), but after that, the site will remain up only as an archive.

There are a number of reasons for the site coming to a close in three months, but none of them are particularly important. Basically, it's time to move on. Thirteen years is a good run.

I wanted to give a little warning rather than cease out of nowhere, because I want to point out that we will have some incredible reviews from our staff, who are some of the best writers I have ever known. We're going to go out on some of our strongest material.

There will be another post on June 15th, a final farewell post, where I talk about more about the closure. This post is just a friendly notice that the end of the book is drawing near.

So sorry to hear that - this

So sorry to hear that - this is, by far, the most comprehensive and articulate site I have found when it comes to reviews.  I'm glad to hear it will the archives will continue.  Thank you for all of the hard work and great information throughout the years!

I'm very sorry to hear this Nate, but I wish you and the other writers of this fine site the very best of luck in your future endeavours. Glad to hear that Classic Horror will remain online as an archive - it's one of my go-to sites for research, recreation and recommendations. I can't believe its 13 years old! A great run indeed. Best wishes and luck. :)
