The Horror That Made Me Happy in 2017

Wow, I've really let this place go, haven't I?  I've been putting together some high-quality excuses but frankly the year just got away from me while I've also been trying to figure out the best way to move forward with this site.  The good news is that I think I've got an idea for 2018 (more on that later).  But first, I just couldn't let the year end without at least sticking to the one annual tradition I've got on here.

With that, I bring you the 2017 edition of the Horror That Made Me Happy.  As always, this won't necessarily be stuff that was released this year.  It's just the stuff that I discovered this year, because I'm narcissistic and if I don't see it then it doesn't matter.  With that, to the list!

Interview with The Horror Honeys Part II

Welcome to Part II of my interview with The Horror Honeys as we celebrate the one year anniversary of Belladonna Magazine, the horror publication created exclusively by women.
For the second half of our interview, we’ll focus on what it means to be a woman in the horror community, both good and bad.  We’ll also find out about the women the Honeys admire in the genre, as well as the future for women in horror.

Interview with The Horror Honeys Part I

If you’re a fan of The Horror Honeys and their online magazine, Belladonna, you might be excited to hear that this month marks the magazine’s first anniversary.  To celebrate, I was fortunate enough to snag an interview with not one, not two, but THIRTEEN members of the gang.

Celebrate Two Years of Remedial Horror by Supporting A Good Cause (and perhaps winning something for yourself)

April marks the 2-year anniversary of Remedial Horror!  Thanks to all of those who have checked in on my inane ramblings from time to time, even as posts have been sporadic during my time here.  As I get started on my third year, I have a request in mind for an anniversary present.  The catch is it's not for me, and you'll have a chance of winning a bunch of presents yourself!

Women in Horror Month Interview: Heather Wixson

Heather Wixson is the Managing Editor of Daily Dead, she’s got about a decade writing for the horror genre under her belt, and this year she’ll add published author to her resume once she releases Monster Squad, a collection of interviews she conducted with some of the great FX artists in the business.

For my second Women in Horror Month interview, I sat down with Heather and we took a deep dive into her history with the genre, how she fits into the horror community as a woman, and some very interesting news about the upcoming book.  I’ll warn you upfront this is a bit of a long one, but Heather has a lot of really cool stuff to share so I know you won’t be disappointed.

Women in Horror Month: Interview with Zena Dixon, The Real Queen of Horror

Of the many fine people I've met in the online horror community over the years, few create as many different kinds of content as Zena Dixon, who you may know better as The Real Queen of Horror.  And make no mistake, this woman is a horror fan through and through.  She runs a website and hosts YouTube channel where she reviews horror movies and documents her adventures in the genre.  She produces one of my favorite podcasts, Girls Will Be Ghouls.  And, last but not least, produces her own movies, including the 2015 short film Hidden.

I was fortunate to claim a few of the precious free moments she has to answer some questions about what draws her to the horror genre, what kind of content she enjoys making the most, and the role of women in the horror community.
