About Horrid

HORRID originated as a way to use darkness to fuel creation. Through the discussion of dark and taboo topics, we provide a safe space for the strange and unusual. HORRID is a death-positive brand that focuses on themes of witchcraft, horror, science-fiction and the discussion of mental health. The magazine creates a platform to promote dark artists from around the globe, featuring 20-25 artists in each quarterly issue.
