A couple years ago the first Woman in Black movie snuck up on everyone. It was a quiet and well done horror movie that Daniel Radcliffe used to show the world that he was more than just Harry Potter. On Tuesday the sequel arrives on DVD and BluRay. If you haven’t checked out this franchise, I highly suggest you take a chance with this movie. You won’t regret the two hours you spend on the first one and I am hoping that holds true on the second one. I will have a review on it soon. Follow the jump for more info and a behind the scenes clip. Read more »
Whenever the subject of a zombie apocalypse comes up in conversation (it happens quite a bit for me, does it not for you?) it seems there are usually two directions it goes. First is hoping that all the assholes we know because zombies so we can shoot them in the head. The second one is either acknowledging that we could probably run from zombies for about 2 blocks and be sucking wind OR imagining ourselves as the badass of the apocalypse. The person that Daryl looks up to. Coming May 8 Arnold Schwarzenegger shows us the human side of a zombie apocalypse. Follow the jump for the trailer of Maggie. Kudos to the film company for making a trailer that teases without spoiling.

Today I wanted to take a minute to spotlight Chesya Burke. She has been writing in the horror genre for as long as I have known her. There are lots of her short stories on the market and a recent collection called “Let’s Play White.” Find out more about her on her FaceBook page
The suggestion from Lynne Hansen was to spotlight Tonjia Atomic. She is an independent filmmaker with several projects under her belt at this time. Currently she is working on a film called Raw Meat with Bill Oberst Jr. (You may know him from Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies!) Raw Meat has a little bit of a KickStarter going on now. Follow the link to learn more about it and her.
One of the things I wanted to do with Women in Horror Month was to create a chain, so I was asking all the women I talked to for a suggestion. Courtesy of Naima Haviland today we are looking at Mari Biella. Mari is a writer with one novel and one collection under her belt at the moment. At least according to Smashwords.
Monica has been the managing editor and webmistress for the magazine Rue Morgue for almost a decade now. During that time, there is not any aspect of the horror genre that she hasn’t touched, tasted, heard, seen or eaten! In addition to all that, she has been writing her own fiction and taken the time to produce Tiny Human although the years to come will be all the more a juggling act for this already busy horror maven. You can check out the latest with Rue Morgue or look for her on facebook to find more about her writings.
Back in the 80s and 90s there was one name that was thought of when you heard the term Scream Queen. Linnea Quigley. I propose to you that in the 00s and 10s there is a new name. Tiffany Shepis. She has been working the indie horror film genre for quite a few years (which is hard to believe because she only looks like she is about 23.) With some of the biggest names alongside her at times. Some of the absolute highlights which you should check out of her work. Dark Reel. Bonnie and Clyde vs Dracula. The Violent Kind. Frankenstein Syndrome. Wrath of Crows. Oh yeah, and she was in Sharknado 2.
You can always find out more about her on her FaceBook page.
Up today we have Lynne Hansen who has been writing YA horror stories for years now. But her most recent foray into horror is the movie Chomp! She wrote, produced and directed this award winning movie short. She won Filmmaker to Watch at the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival, and just this past weekend Chomp won Best Short and Best of Fest at the GeekFest Film Festival at Shock Pop Comic Con. Chomp is playing this coming weekend at the Nevermore Film Festival in Durham, NC.
You can find more about Chomp and Lynne at their respective websites.
A few years ago I got a book for review called Allison Hewitt is Trapped. A zombie book with a slightly different flair to it. The book was written as blog entries. It was innovative and interesting and well written. And it launched Madeleine into a career as an author. What more could you ask for. Well, more books from our perspective, and her follow up Sadie Walker is Stranded was a zombie follow up. To read more about her, go to her FaceBook page or try her author page.
