What's the "First Kiss?" The First Kiss is the event that hooks you into your passion and obsession.  Budding horror fans are carefully fed safe increments of scares by kiddie movies with frightening edges that end up with happy endings.  But what are the moments we stumble upon that aren’t carefully supervised?  What movies, books, stories are the first reveal of the shock and surge that good horror can produce in its fans?  We talk about that first thrill, that first shock, that first kiss.
