    Guest Post: Women in Horror by Annie Neugebauer

    I’ve written for Women in Horror Month more times than I can keep track of anymore, and I’ve still scarcely scratched the surface. How could I, when women are such an expansive group—when horror is such a wide-ranging genre? I talk about feminism, history, and contemporary badasses I adore. I talk about books and movies and shows worth seeking out. I talk about my own experiences being both lifted up and quietly pushed to the side. How, then, have I never actually talked about women in horror as its own titular topic? Seems simple enough. So, what do I have to say about women in horror? I mined the depths…

    Tables come in all shapes and sizes, but every table has finite places. What are you supposed to do when that table is occupied, and no one wants to give up their seat? Do you sit on the floor and hope to hear from a distance what is being said?  Do you try to interject as loud as your voice will carry despite gazing at a row of backs? Maybe someone in a seat will hear what you have to say.  Do you try to wedge yourself between two seats, hoping there is enough space for your body before the ones seated become too uncomfortable with your proximity as you stand…
