The Calling Hours Horror Podcast 2.3: Girls Who Love Horror With Women in Horror Month/Ax Wound Film Festival Founder Hannah Neurotica (Air Date: 11.14.17)
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
“Nothing would make me happier than to no longer have a need for Women in Horror Month.” – Hannah Neurotica
Just ahead of this weekend’s Ax Wound Film Festival, founder and women in horror advocate Hannah Neurotica sits down to talk with us about the state of women in horror, what inspired her to create Women in Horror Month (coming up on its 9th year), the origins of her zine turned blog Ax Wound and later the Ax Wound Film Festival, how the role of women in the genre has evolved, and why we still have a long way to go before there is real equality in the genre.
Hannah also tells us more about what we can expect from the 3rd Annual Ax Wound Film Festival, taking place at the Hooker-Dunham Theater & Gallery in Brattleboro, Vermont on Friday, November 17th and Saturday, November 18th! This year, the festival will offer two days of nearly 50 short films from women filmmakers across the globe, a filmmaker-in-attendance Q&A, and engaging presentations from leading women horror writers, artists, and directors.
Morbidly Beautiful is proud to help sponsor this incredible event, along with some of our favorite people and companies working in the genre, including our good friends at Shudder. In fact, everyone who purchases a ticket to the event will receive a free month of the popular horror streaming service.
In this week’s Digital Dismemberment segments, we will be reviewing Scream Factory’s Special Edition Blu-Ray Release of the European Exploitation Film, Horror Rises From The Tomb. This is another must have addition to any horror movie collection from a company who never fails to deliver. We’re also taking a look at the new release from our friends at Unearthed Films called Dreaming Purple Neon. Fans of extreme/exploitation/grindhouse cinema will definitely want to check out this brilliant, boundary-pushing film from director Todd Sheets.
Don’t worry music fans…we’ve got you covered as well! Throughout the episode, we’ll be showcasing some of our favorite metal music with songs by Krisiun, Whitechapel and Aeon.
