Celebrate Women in Horror Month

Women who love horror are more numerous than ever, and our voices have been growing continuously stronger in the horror community. It’s time for the horror community and society in general to realize the many talents of women within the industry and for women themselves to celebrate their many accomplishments and their love of horror! To celebrate all women who love horror, Fatally-Yours is featuring an interview series this February exclusively featuring women who are making an impact in the horror industry!

The amazing Hannah Neurotica of Ax Wound Zine first proposed the idea of a Women in Horror Recognition Month and decided that February would be an appropriate time to honor all women who love horror. You can get an idea of what the Women in Horror Month entails over at Women in Horror Month’s official website.

Being a woman in horror myself, I was absolutely thrilled and excited by Hannah’s brilliant idea. Why shouldn’t there be a month dedicated to recognizing and bringing awareness to women in horror? Women in horror are more than just “scream queens” (though hard-working and ambitious scream queens are to be admired as well). Women in horror do everything from directing, producing, acting, writing, reporting, blogging and so on, not to mention the women horror fans that love the genre as much as males (if not more). Women in horror come in all shapes and sizes and their beliefs run from feminist to traditionalist, but one thing they all share in common is their love of horror films!

So, during the month of February we here at Fatally-Yours will be posting interviews with a variety of women in horror – from authors to journalists to makeup and special FX artists to actresses to directors to producers to musicians and so on! Our goal is to show the horror community (and beyond) that women are very much involved with the horror industry and to inspire other women to get involved. We want to show just how important horror is to women and how women can contribute different ideas and perspectives to the horror genre. Each day we will feature multiple interviews with different women in horror and we sincerely hope you will join us in celebrating these amazing women in horror!
