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 →
Lately I’ve had the kind of craving that only a good slasher flick can satisfy. To give myself some relief, I went through quite a few flicks that hold special places in my heart, but no dice. I needed something new and fresh–to me anyway–so I decided to put my feelers out to find the perfect release.
I turned to the social mediaverse for help and consistently received the recommendation of The Burning. I couldn’t say no to a suggestion from those whose cinematic tastes are strikingly similar to mine, and believe me, I was not disappointed. Continue Reading →
Things have been a wee bit hectic for us these past few months. I could tell you all about it, but that’s novel length writing and so far I’m 0 for 3 on finishing those. Let’s just stick with the highlights, shall we? Continue Reading →
It’s almost time for all of the lucky children to gorge themselves on treats this Halloween season. Most towns around here are hosting trick or treat on October 30 from 6-8 pm, but Capitol Market and the Charleston Town Center Mall are having trick or treat tonight!!! Now is a good time to maximize your return on the money you shelled out for those lovely costumes and let the kids overdose on sugar. Continue Reading →

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 →
