HorrorScope: The Australian Dark Fiction Web Log is a news and review webzine dedicated to horror literature and movies. The zine was created by Australian independent publisher Brimstone Press in August 2005. HorrorScope and its editors have won two Ditmar Awards (Australian Science Fiction Achievement Awards) and attracted several award nominations.

Heather Gammage joined the staff in December 2006.

The Australian Horror Writers Association's news service was amalgamated with HorrorScope in March 2007.
