I love horror.

Always have, and always will.  This blog came out of that love, because I wanted to talk about horror for fun, but I soon developed a critical eye; using my experience as a makeup artist on a few really, really independent (and weird) film sets and as a writer to guide me through the haunted houses, creature features, vamps and all other supernatural fare.  I am here to discuss a genre that continues to challenge and sometimes frustrates its audience; a genre that is evolving, devolving and delightfully grim.  I hope you enjoy and comment on the films, books and graphic novels I write about, and tell me what you like or dislike about them!

Pixie Fun Facts:

I was named after a character from Dark Shadows.

I love Don Cheadle, Stephen McHattie and Keanu Reeves (don’t ask, just know).

Yes, I have a pixie haircut.

I’m a contributing author to The Women in Horror Annual and The Encyclopedia of Japanese Horror Films.
