Horror is where you find it: in traditions of ancient Japan; during wars; in jaded relationships. No matter the time or place, there is something hideous waiting to put out its head; in love songs or dirges there are unearthly strains to be heard – if you only tune in. Here are horrors from all over: Lovecraftian; dystopian; horrors of the mind, the heart and darker places.
