HorrorGirl Problems x ShoutOutLA Interview

I had the opportunity to chat with ShoutoutLA a couple months back and the article is now live on their site. Thanks so much for having me and letting me talk about horror, community, representation and my fave spots in my beloved city, it was an honor. You can check out the full article HERE.

Here’s a small preview of the article:


Harbinger – An Original Screenplay By Marco Mannone Offering A New Perspective On An Old Favorite

I had the privilege of reading this script and it’s one of those concepts that is so perfect it seems it should have been done a thousand times before. The best ideas tend to feel this way, and the best ideas tend to have me kicking myself for not thinking to do the seemingly obvious. Fully experienced both of these while reading. Marco’s script oozes with heart, and while it does pay tribute to all the beloved slashers so close to our collective horror-loving-hearts, it delivers a hell of a lot more than nostalgia. By the end, I was choked up and my heart strings had been effectively tugged. Can’t wait to see the kill scenes on screen. Take a look at this pitch video and let the excitement commence.

Watch 2021 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards Pre-Show + Full Awards Ceremony

Wow! What a wonderfully wild week and a most magical night. I don’t know if I will ever return to my body after this out of body experience. Getting to chat with so many people I respect and admire greatly… well let’s just say I’m still scraping my brain matter off the walls and attempting to stuff it all back into my skull. Eternally grateful.

Thank you to Fangoria for inviting me to be part of this. Big thanks to Gigi Saul Guerrero, Barbara Crampton, Josh Stolberg, Travis Stevens, Sarah Lind and Sam Zimmerman. And thanks to everyone who tuned in, sent lovely words of support, kept the chat fun and lively, it was great to see so many familiar names on the feed. I wish I could go back and read all the comments but apparently I would have needed to do a screen recording for that to happen!! If you missed the pre-show live stream you can check it out here:

And if you missed the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards (or if you just want to rewatch it like I have maybe a few times now) you can check that out on YouTube. I believe it will also be on Shudder at some point. What a production! Congrats to everyone who pulled this off, I know it delivered a straight shot of glee to my guts and the sentiment seems to be overwhelmingly similar. David was an incredible host and it was so much fun to watch the presenters and winners videos. Congratulations to all winners, nominees, and each and every person behind the scenes, pulling off this awesome show.

The 2021 FANGORIA Chainsaw Awards hosted by David Dastmalchian with presenters Jamie Lee Curtis, Keith David, Kevin Smith, Gigi Saul Guerrero, Doug Jones, Biqtch Puddin’, and more! Directed by Xanthe Pajarillo.

It’s Chainsaw (Awards) Season, Baby!

We are halfway to Halloween and just over a week away from the 2021 Fangoria Chainsaw Awards! Awards shows are severely lacking blood and bits, so I’m looking forward to satiating my hunger for all that is cinematically sanguine. Click here for details on how to watch The event will be streaming live on Shudder, April 18th 5PM PT.

To get you in the mood and prep your palates, I’ll be hosting a LIVE Fango x Convo panel on April 14th 4PM PT,  diving into the history of the Chainsaw Awards with Fango legends Tony Timpone, Mike Gingold, Rebekah McKendry and current EIC Phil Nobile Jr. Click here for full details + to register for the zoom panel

HorrorGirl Problems Patreon

I always shoot more content than I actually use, and that stuff just ends up buried on hard drives. So instead I’m going to let it live on Patreon, for anyone who cares to partake. Mostly additional photos from photo sets I post on socials and BTS videos. If this becomes a thing, I’ll expand on the content that’s hosted there. In the meantime, first BTS video is up- getting ready and makeup removal for a Valentine’s Day themed photo set. HorrorGirl style, obviously.

Sometimes when shit is falling apart and I’m feeling all but helpless, it helps me to throw myself into making things. Sometimes I’m zapped of that desire, but when it’s there… it really is a nice escape. So here’s the result of that angst channeling itself into creation. Hope you like-minded creeps find something here you enjoy.

Socially Distanced SoCal Haunts for October 2020

Like everything else this year, Halloween will look quite a bit different. No, Halloween is not cancelled, ya’ spooky bitches. It’s a lifestyle. A frame of mind. A way of existing in the world. And for those of you who embrace that spirit in October alone, you can still embrace it for 31 days in 2020. Haunts as we have come to know them, however, are most definitely cancelled. BUT there are some new reimagined haunt experiences happening and I will compile a list here. This is all new so at this point I obviously cannot vouch for the safety or the awesomeness of the haunts listed below. But take this information, check out each haunt’s specific safety precautions, grab your masks and maybe go get the hell scared outta you in your car. Everyone is hungry for haunts and they are in limited supply, so I’d advise you to jump on tickets quickly if you find something you like because this year more than any other, demand far outweighs supply.
