Once a staple on network television, horror hosting has gone underground. This cultural phenomenon survives on the fringe with a loyal cult following. In this documentary, entitled I. Zombi, cable access television personalities discuss the Horror Host Underground. This social network spans the United States, promoting their programs and enriching their lives.

This year’s conference theme invites papers at the
