The Devils You Know – M.C. Atwood – October 3rd, 2017

Plenty of legends surround the infamous Boulder House in Whispering Bluffs, Wisconsin, but nobody takes them seriously. Certainly nobody believes that the original owner, Maxwell Cartwright Jr., cursed its construction—or that a murder of crows died upon its completion, their carcasses turning the land black. If anyone did believe it all, there’s no way River Red High would offer a field trip there for the senior class.

Five very different seniors on the trip—Violet, Paul, Ashley, Dylan, and Gretchen—have reasons beyond school spirit for not ditching the trip. When they’re separated from the group, they discover that what lies within Boulder House is far more horrifying than any local folklore. To survive, they’ll have to band together in ways they never could have imagined and ultimately confront the truths of their darkest selves.

Horrorific Trivia:

As even casual watchers of Supernatural will realize, Supernatural is particularly fond of classic rock. What often flies under the radar is the fact that their love of music also extends to the episode titles themselves. I had casually noticed it and thought it might make a nice ten episode length list. However, there turned out to be more than I thought so this will be Part One. Please check out my trivia section for This is Horror #21 for Part Two. Looking ahead there may even be a Part Three! I’m leaving off the somewhat generic titles that do have a corresponding song but since their meaning is so broad it’s hard to tell if they do connect the song and episode.

1. In My Time of Dying (S2, E1) – Led Zeppelin

2. No Exit (S2, E6) – Blondie  (This is the only exception to the generic sounding title rule as the lyrics and episode plot with Jo, a blondie herself, argue for their connection)

3. Crossroad Blues (S2, E8) – Robert Johnson

4. Houses of the Holy (S2, E13) – Led Zeppelin

5. Born Under a Bad Sign (S2, E14) – Albert King

6. Folsom Prison Blues (S2, E19) – Johnny Cash

7. What Is and What Should Never Be (S2, E20) – Led Zeppelin

8. Dream a Little Dream of Me (S3, E10) – Ozzie Nelson

9. Time is on My Side (S3, E15) – The Rolling Stones

10. When the Levee Breaks (S4, E21) – Led Zeppelin

Please check out the trivia section next week for Part Two!

  1. I love this feature. So many scary good movies and books! I’m way behind on Supernatural. I start to watch it and can’t seem to get back into it. Plus I’ve been binging a bunch of other shows. A friend just read The Devils You Know and really liked it. That ones now on my list.

    1. I have fallen way behind myself. I think it’s because I like the Monster of the Week thing better and when they start getting into long, drawn-out story arcs my attention lags.

    1. Same here, season 5 is always where my interest starts to flag. I think it’s because they drop a lot of the stand-alone episodes and *everything* starts being about the story arc. The same thing happened with X-Files and me, too. Must be something about the fifth seasons, lol

  2. I love your horror updates. I am drastically behind on Supernatural and think I’m just going to start over from the beginning and make 2018 the year of Supernatural. I also did appreciate how they worked classic rock into the show but never knew about the titles.

    1. I caught most of them so when I originally planned this as a trivia I figured there would be enough for one issue of This is Horror but there are many more so it will be showing up on the next issue as well in the trivia. They seem to have a particular fondness for Led Zeppelin…
