    Guest Post: Everyday Horrors by Kathleen Kaufman

    When I was sixteen, my friend Emily was summarily dumped by her long-distance boyfriend.   Emily decided the best way to deal with her angst was to burn all his letters, pictures, valentines, and notes.  In an age before the internet, this amounted to quite a lot.   It was so decided that I, as her trusty sidekick, would accompany her to a local park, at night, alone, with a bag of sentimentally charged paper products and burn them in the barbeque pit, and Emily’s grief  and anger would be released back into the night sky.   It was going to be beautiful.     We pulled into the bottleneck parking lot (important to note for later…) and parked at…

    Horror Directors for WIHM

    It’s February and cold outside! But let’s ignore the snow and snuggle up with books and films to celebrate Women in Horror Month.

But it is not the case that women aren’t creating horror. The ladies are deep in the trenches of the terrifying and they are bringing us some incredibly scary and brilliant films. Here are a few female directors who are making waves in…
