To say 2020 was a bit of a shit show is an understatement of horrific proportions (see what I did there?). I’ve made it my personal mission to not to dwell on the past, especially with 2020 being what it was. That said, I’ve been doing these “Look Back” posts since the site’s inception and I’m not going to stop the tradition now.
I’m always interested to see what content our readers are interested in. In 2020 we knocked out 124 posts which was up from 98 in 2019. As always there’s a lot more to come, especially when we factor in the fact that hopefully, we’ll be returning to theaters sometime in 2021. Stay tuned to the site and social media for all the latest from the ScareTissue family!
And with that…
