West Virginia Horror Movies

I’m deeply fond of our adopted state, but it’s not a fondness the rest of the country always shares: most of the movies set in West Virginia are hixploitation schlock. As frustrating as that can be at times, there’s still something to be said for honoring the small bits of attention that West Virginia gets.

Codex Mortis

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
