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.
