We dive off the deep end this week’s “What Do Horror Fans Want?” with That Ghoul Ava of Horror Extreme.
Time for another installment of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” This time, we take a return trip across the pond and pick the brain of Pazuzu Iscariot of Horror Extreme.
The Series continues. This week, we feature author Elyse Draper. She is one of the authors in “Voices of Autism: Stories of Courage”, “Comfort and Strength”; “Ladies of Horror 2009”; has illustrated several others, and has three novels in the process of finding a home: “Free Will”, “Consequences”, and “Vindication”, a fourth in progress “The Takers”, and a fifth on the drawing board “Mirrorscape”.
You can visit her site here.
We close out the Halloween edition of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” with a few words from writer, Stefan Prosser. Sefan describes himself as “a horror fan who finally gave in to frustration and decided to rant, whether anybody listened, or not.” You can follow his rants and writing at The Fright Writer.
Day Four of the Halloween edition of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” Today, we break the seal on the gender barrier as Tammy Dupal, the “Gore Whore” of Twisted Central breaks it down for us.
Day Three of the Halloween edition of “What Do Horror Fans Want?” Today, we’re featuring one of my favorite bloggers/tweeters. He’s a lover of all things scary, lover of photography and just plan out lover! Jonathan Aldebot is the lack of brains behind The Reely Bored Blog; a blog that merely scratches of the surface of Horror. All because he was bored.*
The series continues. This time we hear from Steve Norwood. Steve is the Editor-In-Chief of the Dallas-based entertainment site, Red Carpet Crash. He’s also the Director of Programming for the Asian Film Festival of Dallas.
A few weeks ago, someone asked me what I thought was a very simple question. I’ll paraphrase it for you here: What does the horror community want? The question quite honestly stumped me.
What does the horror community want?
So, I figure in order to find out what the horror community wants, you have to ask the horror community what it wants. To that end, I’ve contacted a number of writers, directors, actors and fans in the horror community to find out what it is they want from horror.
This is going to be an ongoing thing, so I hope you enjoy it.
Hi, my name is Joe and I’m a horror writer.
I guess it’s taken me a while to get to the point where I can admit it in a straightforward fashion. It’s not, “I guess I’m a horror writer” or, “People tell me what I’m writing is horror” (which is not to be confused with people telling me my writing is horrible). Sometimes I sit and think it’s been a long twisting road to get here. The truth is, however, a case of life imitating art. It’s the act three twist that sets everything on its head: I didn’t go anywhere. I have always been here. Continue reading “OK, So I’m a Horror Writer”
The gods bless my wife.
For most of the last year, I’ve watched almost nothing but horror movies. She, for her wifely part, has watched them with me, rarely complaining. We’ve watched big budget franchise movies and no-budget groaners. We’ve watched American, Chilean, English, French, Irish, Italian, Japanese, and Scandinavian horror. Slashers, aliens, monsters, zombies and assorted madmen, we’ve watched them in bunches, and I’ve come to a conclusion:
They don’t scare me.
