Women in Horror Month 2016

It's that time of the year again, the month of my people, Women in Horror Month. Before I get too much into what's going on for it this year I want to start off by talking about how it seems that a lot of women who specialize in horror seem to be born in this month. There's Gigi of Luchagore, Jill of Sixx Tape Productions, myself of course and Carolyn of Off World Pictures was only one day short of being born this month as well. I'm sure there are many more, but this just struck me as interesting this year.

The Best of 2015

As a horror fan 2015 has been a great year with so many cool (mostly independent) new films coming out. Allow me to share with you my top 8 films for 2015 and why I loved them in no particular order.

The boys are ready for a night on the town.

What We Do in the Shadows

I figured I should start off this list with what is probably the best horror comedy of the year. This movie was hilarious. It knew the vampire genre like the back of it's hand and was able to use that knowledge to create many jokes. All the characters are well crafted and the film is insanely quotable. There's even some decent blood effects in it if you desperately need gore.

The Creepy Christmas of 2015

Well Christmas this year has been great for those of us who like our holidays a little more horrific. This year saw the release of Michael Dougherty's follow up to Trick'r Treat titled Krampus.

Halloween 2015 Part 2: The Spookening

Well the Halloween season has now ended and I'm the worst blogger ever, but boy was it a busy day. First things first, as you already saw, I was watching movies like a maniac in the morning to make it up to my 500th film. I was also able to share the edited results of a photoshoot I had done back in 2014 for the Halloween season. Photos are by Bren Macdonald and make up by Erin Geer.

Halloween 2015 - Part 1

Well it's that time of year again. I've now been blogging for four years. As I type I'm currently watching my 500th horror film. The film of choice wound up being Suburban Gothic, which so far has been pretty funny, as well as featuring a star studded cast including Vancouver darlings the Twisted Twins.

Vancouver Haunted Trolley Tour

They say third time's a charm and that rang true for me trying to go on the Vancouver Trolley Company's Haunted Trolley Tour. After trying and failing to call in time to book a spot on one of their ghostly tours two times in a row this year I was finally successful.

If You Like Punks and Lizards Boy Do I Have a Treat For You

Every once in a while someone shares something awesome with you online. Well when I saw the pitch trailer for something that combines two of my favourite things in my childhood, Punks vs. Lizards, it was one of those videos and all I can say is I want more. When (not if) this gets made into a feature I will be one of the first people in line to see it.

Based on the webcomic of the same name by Noah Van Sciver it stars Tristan Risk and Sophie Mcmullin of American Mary as well as comic book artist Justice Stefaniuk. On the crew side it features Benjamin Calaf (from Company of Heroes 2) in the directors chair with Luchagore Production's Luke Bramley and Jordan Williams behind the camera and Leo award winning make-up artist Caitlin Groves creating the lizard queen.

Here is the trailer and I highly suggest you check out:
