Nine years ago, this next artist decided to change February forever with the very first Women in Horror Month. The founder of WiHM, Hannah Forman, has been growing this event, this celebration, this unity for nine years before it was in vogue to support female artists in the industry.
Without WIHM, our first film wouldn’t have gotten its first two screenings which became life changing events for us. I’ve watched her work tirelessly every year to promote people’s work and raise awareness about artists across the globe in the past, present, and setting up for the future.
I’m over-joyed that she was able to be a part of these 9th Annual WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSAs. Bless you for everything you’ve done, Hannah. Love you to bits!
DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language.
If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don’t watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We’re not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are 😉
AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, IT’S TIME FOR YOUR EGG!!!
Hannah Neurotica is the founder of Women in Horror Month, the Ax Wound Film Festival, and published the world’s first known print feminist horror publication, Ax Wound ‘Zine. She is a mixed media artist, writer, and experimental filmmaker whose appeared in Newsweek, The Guardian, Complex.com, Rue Morgue, Bitch, NPR, CBC Radio, and other pop culture media. She has been invited to speak or moderate a panels at events such as Geek Girl Con, Horror Rama, and Horrible Imaginings.
From event organizing to creative projects, Hannah’s passion is rooted in educating and empowering women to share their stories in all artistic forms, while simultaneously creating new spaces/opportunities to amplify what they have to say.
I am honored to be part of this massive blood drive undertaking. My father passed away right before the first WiHM in 2010 and it was especially meaningful when Jen and Sylvia Soska told me they wanted to start encouraging people to donate with horror/gore themed blood donation PSAs. I’d just watched my dad get bags of blood from people I will never be able to thank but whom I am grateful for everyday. All you have to do is make an appointment, sit in a chair, and then you get a cookie. Being a hero has never been easier! Please consider taking that brave step and share that good red stuff in your veins.
