Talking Horror on the Nocturnal Emissions Podcast

A few weeks ago I was a guest on Isabella Price‘s highly entertaining Nocturnal Emissons podcast! We talked about how our passion for horror films started, feeling both welcome and unwelcome in horror fandom, and why we need more women’s voices in the genre. Listen here and subscribe to her podcast and YouTube channel for

Take a listen to it here; I’ve transcribed the first part before the Q&A

All Killer, No Filler: Horror Curation Panel at Emerald City Comicon

I got together with a bunch of friends to talk about streaming horror movies, horror communities, and a ton of other stuff related to splatter at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend! The panel was sponsored by Shudder, and we had a blast hanging out and engaging with our audience. You can watch the whole

The Narrow Caves

I haven’t listened to that many narrative podcasts, but I kept seeing ads for The Narrow Caves, written by Director S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk & Brawl in Cell Block 99) brought to you by FANGORIA which promised an “ear-movie” experience, so I decided to give a try. The Narrow Caves starts out in 1923,

Fantastic Fest 2018 Wrap-Up

This year marked my first time at Fantastic Fest, which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed! Sitting in a dark theater with so many like-minded genre fans was an amazing experience, and though I can’t really afford to make it happen every year, I’ll definitely be back. Here’s a quick rundown of all the feature films I saw

Suspiria (2018)

Suspiria 2018 Dakota Johnson

It’s been almost a full week since I’ve seen Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria at Fantastic Fest, and I’m still thinking and rethinking and contemplating and dissecting and wanting to watch it again SO BAD it almost hurts. Before you ask (as many men I ran into did, after I told them how much I LOVED this

The Nun

Whelp, the folks that dreamed up The Conjuring universe have FINALLY made a movie that I like. Actually, not just liked: LOVED. The Nun is dripping with Gothic Horror goodness, doesn’t take itself too seriously, and watching it feels *almost* like you’re watching a classic Hammer Horror flick. The action takes place inside a giant, mysterious castle in fog-covered

Revenge

HolyCRAP. I was not expecting Revenge to live up to its amazing hype, but it is absolutely worthy of every single bit of praise its getting from critics and fans. Aspiring actress Jen (Matilda Lutz – who was great in the otherwise dreadful Rings, but is AMAZING here) arrives with her super-rich, married boyfriend at his lush desert estate

It {2017}

{cross-posted to Three Imaginary Girls} Remember those heady, lazy days with your friends on summer break? The long, sunny bike rides, music blasting from your boombox, picnics by the lake … and that time an ancient soul-eating demon tried to pick you off one by one while masquerading as a terrifying circus clown? It introduces us to “The

RINGS

{cross-posted to Three Imaginary Girls}  It’s been 12 years since The Ring 2 (TWELVE?!?! YEARS?!?!) so I suppose it was about time for Samara and her f’ed up psychic video feed to resurface, because we need something other than reality to terrify us in 2017 – amirite? Terrify isn’t exactly the word I would use
