Hello, beloved boys and grrls...
Since we started out in our ventures of filmmaking, we've utilized social media and online video and blog sites to keep you abreast (giggity) of all of our exploits. From film news to behind the scenes goodies, from rants to raves, beginnings and ends, Blogger has been the first avenue we embraced to connect with you all. It started at DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK and has continued to grow as we have.
Blogger has seen us travel the world. It's seen us at our best. It's been there at our lowest. We've shared laughs and tears and memories that we'll never lose and always have just a library scroll away. But as our lives have changed, so has the world around us. New avenues have opened up for us to connect with you all. We now have so many ways to connect, many very VERY user friendly and so simple even at my most intoxicated can I regale you with every thought that enters into my mind and our long running quest for total and utter world domination beginning with the beautiful nation of Canada.
It is with a heavy heart that we now end our Blogger journey together. As our lives have changed, our time is more limited and we need to prioritize our methods of communication. We will always have our history together, but we will no longer be updating our Blogger. It will now take its well earned place in Valhalla as an archive of our journey from ambitious youngsters who wanted to kick the film world in the balls to the forces of nature we've evolved to today. None of which would have been possible without the love and support of you all and our methods of reaching you all.
Goodnight, sweet Prince. At long last, your work here is done.
You will be able to follow us and all that is to come for us on FACEBOOK, TWITTER, TUMBLR, INSTAGRAM, FLICKR, and YOUTUBE.
Thank you to all of you for being here with as throughout all and a very special welcome to those of you just coming into our lives and everyone in between. Thank you from the very bottoms of our Twisted little hearts....

"AL: What does Women in Horror Month mean to you ladies personally? Does it hit close to home for you?
SS: WiH is a celebration for the under-recognized heroes that have pioneered and changed the industry in so many ways. There is a misconception that horror doesn’t appeal to women, the roles within it are misogynistic, and that women are not working behind the scenes to tell these stories. If we can change that viewpoint in horror, where we have this huge uphill battle for reassessment on gender equality, then there is hope for the rest of the industry.Read the article right here!
JS: I feel it is about equality, celebration, and recognition. We should be well versed about the history of our industry and I was surprised how little I knew, initially, about the women who were our earliest trail blazers. It’s because they are simply not celebrated nor recognized to the level that they should. It’s also important to recognize that sexism is not a male against female issue as some of the most derogatory, sexist remarks out there come from girls being hateful of other women. And there are some phenomenal male feminists out there."

"1. February is ‘Women In Horror’ Recognition Month. Who are your favorite female film directors?
Sylvia: Mary Harron is the reason why I went into directing, she’s phenomenal. Alice Guy-Blache pioneered early cinema and the industry wouldn’t be what it is today without her contributions. Dorothy Arzner is hugely inspirational as the only female director during Hollywood’s golden age. I’m a big Punisher fan and loved Lexi Alexander’s vision and she’s got real balls, I really admire her. I’m really looking forward to Tammi Sutton’s Isle of Dogs this year! Also, Kathryn Bigelow is brilliant.Read the entire interview here!
Jen: That’s tough. There are so many women that inspire us and our work. Jennifer Chambers Lynch is amazing. I love her body horror. She’s so unique and original. BOXING HELENA is one of our favorite films. I am so honored to be working with her and Mary Harron, Jovanka Vuckovic, and Karyn Kusama on XX. We also had the amazing opportunity to work with a collection of phenomenal female filmmakers for this year’s WiHM Massive Blood Drive. Maude Michaud, Patricia Chica, Isabel Peppard, Jessica Cameron, and WiHM founder herself, Hannah Neurotica."

"With Valentine’s Day imminent, Fangoria has decided our round of Valentine’s lists was just missing something. After all, we hoped our eclectic and eerie choices would help provide a gruesome alternative for any horror fan’s romantic evening. Perhaps, some of our readership may truly believe that romance is dead, and perhaps, that required some further convincing.Read our whole list here!
So FANGORIA reached out to Jen and Sylvia Soska, writers/directors of last year’s fan favorite AMERICAN MARY, and asked if they could add their twisted touch to the proceedings. Luckily, they obliged, offering us their top ten romantic horror films, guaranteed to warm even the deadest of hearts. So trust the twins and let these films become psychotic staples of your Valentine’s Day!"
HERE IT IS, BOYS AND GRRLS!!! Our 2014 Collaborative Women In Horror Recognition Month Massive Blood Drive PSA with Patricia Chica Filmmaker, Actress Jessica Cameron, Hannah Neurotica, Isabel Peppard, Maude Michaud, and Your Friendly Neighborhood Twisted Twins, me and my doppelganger, Sylvia Soska.
Every Women In Horror Recognition month, we encourage everyone across the world to donate blood for the WiHM Massive Blood Drive. You can't think horror without thinking blood and the main reason most people don't donate is because they're afraid of needles. It's time to be brave, roll up your sleeves, and give. You can donate everywhere and anywhere. Send in your photos and do a truly selfless act. After all, it's in you to give.
PLEASE share and enjoy. We wanna see pics of you donating and your own PSAs!
