One reason I love film festivals is that they celebrate creativity.
So I was honored to be asked to judge Etheria Film Night held in early June in Hollywood.
Etheria Film Night is the world’s most respected showcase of new horror, comedy, science fiction, fantasy, action, and thriller films made by emerging women directors.
I was also able to attend, and cover, the red carpet festivities to talk to people about horror and horror movies.
The event drew a large crowd with varied interests including films, home haunts, and creepy, corpse-filled magazines (literally!).
In this episode are snippets of conversations with people on the red carpet, including the legendary Roger Corman, Stephanie Rothman, Rebecca McKendry, and Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and many other films).
Also I talked with some of the directors of the films featured that night, including Tara Price, and the winner of the Jury Prize Bridget Savage Cole.
I hope you enjoy the episode and the energy from the Blood-Red Carpet.
Thanks for listening.
