1. What does Women in Horror Recognition Month mean to you?
For me Women in Horror Recognition Month is really a time for me to show support for and reconnect with all of the female filmmakers working in the genre of horror. It is a time for me to feel the love and support of my fellow filmmakers, writers, and fans. It is difficult enough to be a female filmmaker, but there is a greater difficulty and loneliness to also be a female filmmaker working in horror. It really helps to have a support group of like-minded people out there.
