In an understanding that this is the time of the year where folks are out and about and maybe even trekking long distances, Hannah and Ashlee wanted to celebrate the go-to activity for the smart arty in us all which is indulging in some magazine reads for your summer travel!

In particular, the print media brought to you by the women who love horror and produce these dynamite publications!

Hannah talks zines, her own publication Ax Wound and its exciting future. 

How do you feel about 1990s horror?

Christine Makepeace spends some time with the ladies to talk about Paracinema magazine: the history, its purpose, 'writing from a place of passion', print vs. digital, and just a very meaty convo that also includes talking about lady writers.

Buy a back issue, read a blog post, pre-order the next!

New audio: check out Johnny Krueg's fun horror film podcast, Krueger Nation. It is indeed as entertaining as the promo!

Until August...

June was bloody with the U.S. release of American Mary, Hatchet III, and other goodies heralded by cult horror enthusiasts and it gets bloodier in July with the annual Viscera Film Festival on Saturday, July 13th at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, California!

Hannah and Ashlee provide all the details including the lineup and judges whose names you may recognize.

Hear from Viscera's Director of Operations Lori Bowen and Chief Officer of Operations Barbara Stepansky providing some history behind how the festival was planted and grew.

From the filmmakers behind 3 of this year's selections, ladies and gents, Jenn Wexler (Halloween Bash, Slumber Party) & Karen Lam (The Meeting) take the time to be inspirational and "fucking awesome".

In addition, look for Karen's upcoming feature, Evangeline!

Sounds: Ghettosongbird's "Alley Of The Earth"

Feedback: Check out genre film writer Matt-suzaka's virtual home, Chuck Norris Ate My Baby!

Extras: Check out some shorts from Viscera (tour and festival) of past years: Summer Of The Zombies, The Dump, Escape From Hellview, Blood Bunny, and Barbie Girls.

May marks a great milestone in horror as the much anticipated American Mary (finally!) gets a limited release in US theaters this Friday, May 31st! To support the momentum, Hannah and Ashlee got a chance to yuck it up with directors Jen & Sylvia Soska along with their supporting gems Tristan Risk and Paula Lindberg about the film.

The film was described best here: “The horror version of Legally Blonde”!!!

Hannah and Ashlee also talk body horror in regards to 2000's Ginger Snaps. Both women dig not only the themes of feminism, menstruation, transformation, and lycanthropy but also Katherine Isabelle's awesome performance. They wanted to show her some shine for being the formidable Mary.

And Ashlee would like to mention some of her other favorite films in the body horror genre: John Carpenter's The Thing, Martyrs, Hellbound: Hellraiser 2, and Videodrome.

Some of Hannah's include: The Brood, Basket Case, Alien, Frankenhooker, anything Cronenberg, Hellraiser, Bad Biology, May, Dead Ringers, Audition, Re-Animator, and The Fly.

Happy end of April, listeners!

I hope Spring is springing all up in your corner of planet Earth and bringing you much joy for the outdoors. While out, I hope your headphones and mobile devices are tuned into our latest episode where we celebrate some really groovy women who have contributed to the horror community through non-fiction prose.

Hannah and Ashlee jump right into their [read]trospective of Carol J. Clover's Men Women and Chainsaws: Gender In The Modern Horror Film first by uniquely describing how the book came to their knowledge and second, a briefer on their favorite sections.

Shout out to the folks who responded to our Facebook and Twitter question about what were some of your favorite non-fiction horror by or about women:

Chelsey Burdon recommends Axelle Carolyn's It Lives Again!: Horror Movies In The New Millenium.
Alexandra West point us to The Dread of Difference: Gender and the Horror Film.
Andrew N. Shearer is hip to Renegade Sisters: Girl Gangs on Film by Bev Zalcock. (Mae West may have been a part of a girl gang. It was a lecture Ashlee heard many moons ago!)
Eileen Winslow is all about Mary Roach's Stiff: The Curious Lives Of Human Cadavers.
Rachel Hoover tips her hat to Chicago Haunts: Ghostly Lore of the Windy City by Ursula Bielski.
Melanie Light (@MisartessMel) says 'yea!' to Kathy The Cannibal by Sandra Lee.

In addition, give Isabel Pinedo's Recreational Terror: Women and the Pleasures of Horror Film Viewing, Barbara Creed's The Monstrous-Feminine: Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis, and Rape-Revenge Films: A Critical Study by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas a spin if you haven't already.

Journalist, vlogger, and jill of many trades Lianne Spiderbaby reads from and talks about her upcoming book, Grindhouse Girls: Cinema's Hardest Working Women while having a general conversation about her professional pursuits. Thank you, Lianne! We hope to get listeners as excited about your book as Hannah and Ashlee are!

We're back!

The featured music is brought to you by director and actress Lisa Hammer from her album Radiana!

The second episode of the Official Women in Horror Month podcast is a recap of this past February and a big, huge thank you to all who participated. If we forgot to mention you, multiple apologies. The response was overwhelming in a positive way and we appreciate all the hard work and effort from ambassadors, event organizers, the generosity of sponsors and our Viscera family.

Ashlee summarized her event, Philly Loves Women In Horror with a focus on how its purpose was to foster the spirit of philanthropy for your local arts & youth non-profits. By the sheer excitement of audience members and continued partnership with donation recipient Lil Filmmakers, Ashlee's already planning on a bigger platform next year with more films and a Q&A panel that will include co-host Hannah as well as Philadelphia horror mavens Jenny Dreadful and Samm Deighan.

La Petite Morgue's Kellie posted a brief recap of the organization's event, Bloody Gore-geous Monologues and shared some next steps for the budding organization.

Jovana Dimitrijevic's triumphant quest to pay homage to women horror artists in Serbia, Girls Can Do Horror spanned over the stretch of 10 days as a multimedia showcase of the work and insight these artists are contributing to the horror community.

Jovana also had a film screening event on March 8th in Postdam, Berlin Germany. Details can be found on the Facebook page where Jovana continues to share amazing art by talented women!

A few WiHM supporters came through with some great PSA's! Shout out to Fem Furry of The Whorer podcast, Tonjia Atomic, and the Soska twins for putting in the time to keep the PSA component alive!

Hannah & Ashlee spoke with writer and producer of the Universal Pictures release Mama (2013) Barbara Muschietti about sibling creative partnership strategies, working with Neil Cross and Guillermo del Toro, Mama 2 (?), and the love of horror films.

Connect with Hannah and/or Ashlee via email or through the various WiHM social media channels with questions, comments, suggestions and stay in the loop for our future episodes!
