As we’re a teeny little blog that’s churned out a mere handful of articles since the Halloween season ended, we’re a little surprised that we were invited to be special guests at Trillium Performing Arts’ Women in Horror Recognition Month event, Saturday Night (un)Dead next Saturday in Lewisburg. At least, I was. Special guest? Me??? Surely someone deserves it more than me! Then I remembered that we’re awesome and we do all sorts of awesome horror-related things like gorelesque burly q performances, creepy photo shoots and art classes, movies and writing…pretty much anything we can get our bloody little paws on. So I squished all those stupid butterflies in my stomach, dammit, ’cause half the state can draw me naked from memory and I’ve already watched Twin Peaks twice this year; I’m ready for anything.

It’s March! You know what that means? It means all the hearts-and-flowers-estrogen-celebratin’-hey-ladies-work-in-horror-too!-Women-in-Horror-Month is about to be punted out the window like that butterface you dragged home from the bar last night.
Before you get all bent out of shape and start calling the horrorfullife gals a bunch of misogynists biting the hand that feeds them (as we will be guests at Lewisburg’s Saturday Night Un-Dead next weekend, a Women in Horror Month event despite the date), let me explain. I love Women in Horror Month. I don’t love that it has to exist. And I don’t love what happens when it’s over. Continue Reading →
Have a Holly Jolly Holiday the Wayward Way!. Time for a little clutch your pearls shock and horror! Tits tits tits and some mighty cute asses mix and mingle with a jinglin’ beat at the upcoming Wayward Girls Holiday Show!
The Haunted Barn has landed! Last year, Penny and Elle were lucky enough to visit the last incarnation of West Virginia’s premiere haunt in Winfield. What does the future hold for the Barn in the warehouse at the end of Beauregard Street?
The Haunted Barn began in 2001 as a family-and-friend event by Halloween loving folks on Lee Jordan’s land. For eleven years, the Haunted Barn crew opened their barn to the guys and ghouls of the world. Patrolman Josh Harper and his group of CEOs, Cameron Goode, David Bowles and Josh’s cousin, Lee Jordan, have seen it grow to what we deemed the vanguard of haunts in 2011. Then the derecho of June 29th came. Continue Reading →
Let’s take a walk down dead nemesis/bff memory lane, shall we? S1, We had Icetruck – charismatic and wily (and family!) and for me by far the most engaging nemesis/friend Dexter’s courted on SHO’s lovably splattery hit show. Kinda blew their wad there by putting him on ice (oohhhh burnnnnnn!) and we have to settle for his smug bastard ghost doing the big brother thing in Dexter’s head. Bye Bye Bynie! Continue Reading →
Elle took me out on my version of a romantic date last weekend – that means we went to see a horror movie with a lot of female-centric themes (it’s an election year, we can’t quit talking about women’s bodies!) and I sneaked in about twenty bucks worth of junk food. The Possession had me from hello – exorcism films are my number one favorite subgenre of horror, has been since I saw The Exorcist in middle school. Sometimes they’re great, mostly they’re crap, but I keep crawling back. I’ve been sewing pasties until my hands bled (seriously, my eczema is driving me nuts and I have a huge crack in my palm. Let’s not delve too deeply into the potential interpretations of that, okay?) so it took me until now, the film’s third week in theaters, to tell you guys you’d be an ass to miss this flick.
