"Horror Business" was the second 7-inch EP, and third release, by the horror punk band The Misfits. It was released on June 26, 1979 by Plan 9 Records, catalog number PL1009.

The cover art for "Horror Business" featured the first appearance of The Crimson Ghost, from the 1946 film serial "The Crimson Ghost", who would become the band's mascot. The title track, "Horror Business", includes the lyrics "Psycho '78" and "I'm warning you, I'll put a knife right in you". These were inspired by the deaths of the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

These songs were recorded between January 26 and February 5 1979, which is contrary to the insert which claimed February 28, at C.I. Recording in New York, NY as part of a planned 5-track "Who Killed Marilyn?" 12" EP. However, after an acetate of that EP was made, frontman Glenn Danzig realized they could not afford a run of them, so they instead released this 3-track 7" EP. The other two tracks from this session were not released until "Legacy of Brutality" was released in 1985.

"Horror Business" and "Teenagers from Mars" were later released on the "Beware" EP (1980) and "Collection I" (1986), "Children in Heat" was later released on "Collection II" (1995) and all three tracks are on the "Box Set" (1996).
