THE BLOOD HITS THE FLOOR AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT!!!

Tune into Marilyn Thomas' 'Blood Bus' 


Credits/bio
Why this is important:
I've always been a fan of the blood drive, but because of health issues, have never been able to donate. Last year, I found out that people of color are very rare donors. I realized that as a First Nations person, I wanted to change that. This year, I'm not only donating blood, but I've signed up as a bone marrow donor and ensured to check off organ donation. Blood donation is the easiest to give. It takes minutes, and you don't have to die to help someone out.

The Soska Sisters

The Soska Sisters
 are Canadian twin badasses who didn't like what they saw in the entertainment industry and took it upon themselves to fix it. After initially setting out to be actresses and finding themselves auditioning for too many stereotypical roles, they decided to create their own film with empowered female characters, a film that would change the indie scene forever, DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK. Content with being outsiders, they followed up their grindhouse hit with the stylized, body modification tale, AMERICAN MARY, which cemented their place as a pair to be watched. Always ones to break new ground and keep audiences guessing, they went on to become the first female directors hired by the WWE and resurrected the SEE NO EVIL 2 franchise with WWE Superstar Kane and followed it up with VENDETTA which turned heart throb Dean Cain into a vengeful cop turned convict hellbent on bringing down WWE's The Big Show. Huge personalities on and off camera, this dynamic duo captured the attention of Blumhouse and followed in the hostessing footsteps of their heroine Elvira to host their survival horror game show, Hellevator. And while the two seek to create better and more diversified roles for women in entertainment, their strong and vocal support for causes of gender equality and LGBTQ rights is just one facet of their filmmaking careers.

ARTISTS' STATEMENT:
For the love of God go donate some fucking blood, please and thank you. People are dying without it and you'll probably need some some day or someone you love will so go be a hero. Save some lives. Do good. After all, it's in you to give.

WiHM Massive Blood Drive "Donor" by Atropa Films

From the Twisted Twins official press release: 

February rages on celebrating Women In Horror Month, now in its 9th year and with it returns the WiHM MASSIVE Blood Drive!

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Atropa Films is a an Edmonton-based independent filmmaking collective putting a queer gaze on genre films. With a shared lifelong love of horror movies and backgrounds in various artistic disciplines, our team brings queer visibility, narratives, and representation to all of our films both on and off screen. We aim to bring a voice and narrative focus that has been glaringly absent from many subgenres of horror, blending what we love about genre cinema with queer perspectives and storytelling.

ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

We are so excited to be involved in this year’s blood drive because horror and blood donation are two things we are very passionate about – a number of our crew members are actually students of or currently working in health sciences. Some of us can’t donate blood at this time due to various restrictions and ineligibilities, so we hope that taking part in this project will help bring awareness to those who can. We also want to use this platform as an opportunity to remind everyone that Canada still has incredibly archaic laws around blood donation that prevent many people we love from donating. Men, as well as trans women, who have sex with men are not allowed to donate blood without first meeting strict requirements that are not feasible for many. During the last Canadian federal election campaign, Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party stated that they “will bring an end to the discriminatory ban” as “this policy ignores scientific evidence.” Please get in touch with your MP and encourage them to push for an end to the stigmatizing blood donation ban so that more of our friends and community members can be heroes as well.

Torture Squad- Far Beyond Existence (Album Review)

Musicians: Torture Squad
Album Title: Far Beyond Existence
Genre/ Subgenre: Thrash/ Death Metal
Label: Brutal Records
Release date: March 30, 2018

Torture Squad, whose name is inspired by American thrashers Scared Reich's track "Death Squad", is a Brazilian band who play a mix of thrash and death metal. Far Beyond Existence is their seventh studio album; their first under Brutal Records. It is also their first full length release with their current signer Mayra "Unread" Puertas, as well as Rene Simionato on guitar. Although, they both previously appeared on the Torture Squad EP Return of Evil.

The sound of the band is richly old school evoking a sound that mixes thrash bands like Kreator and Sodom with death masters like Death and Entombed. The result is a fiery and energetic whirlwind of extreme and battering music and the most exciting release from an underground band, this year. so far.

Practically every song is a winner, here. It opens with the thrashing and pummeling "Don't Cross My Path". An ominous intro goes into a battering drum ladden sound accompanied by chainsaw guitars and crunching riffs for the song "No Fate". "Blood Sacrifice"'s serene intro lulls one into a peaceful and mysterious feel only to build up to a full death metal assault with shredding guitars and battering drums, which, in turn, are perfectly accompanied by Puertas menacing and anger filled growl. "Hate" brings the blast-beats and fast riffing to the forefront with a shark like ferocity that punishes one into submission. "Hero For The Ages" has an amazing thrash metal intro that recalls Anthrax and Slayer. It builds into a furious track that is my favorite on the album.

The band's strong musical talent really drives the album to be a success of fury and fire. The production is good and you can really hear guitars clearly and every cymbal and hit on the drum kit. It really helps to highlight the band's driving sound. I also absolutely love Puertas' signing, She has an awesome death metal growl that she can excellently change in depth and pitch, adding the final addition of brutality. The dark and beautiful artwork comes courtesy of Rafael Tavares and helps to drive this album to the extreme metal stratosphere of awesomeness.
Far Beyond Existence is ripping album that marks one of the most exciting from the underground in recent memory. It proves Torture Squad as a force to be reckoned with in extreme metal. A blistering mix of raging thrash and punishing death metal, it is an album that you need to purchase when it comes out late next month.

"Got Blood?" by Aislinn Clarke



ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Aislinn Clarke is a film-maker and writer/director, whose work has been professionally produced for film, stage, and radio. She has an academic background in Film and Scriptwriting up to Master's degree level and has worked in film, TV, theatre, and radio, locally and internationally, for fifteen years. She is the first woman in Northern Ireland to write and direct a produced feature film, The Devil's Doorway, which was invited to showcase at BAFTA in London, later screened at the Cannes Film Festival and has secured international distribution. Aislinn is also contracted to write and direct feature film The Crossing for Boudica Films (who produced the BAFTA nominated films Iona, The Falling) and another feature film Touched for BAFTA nominated company Rocliffe. Her radio work has been broadcast on BBC radio nationally, as well as in the USA, Canada, and Germany. She has been profiled as a theatre director in The Stage magazine, and her theatre work has toured extensively across the UK and Ireland.


ARTIST'S STATEMENT:

"As a film-maker with an interest in horror, I see lots of blood and I'm always thinking of new ways to spill more. In fact, there are more ways than I can imagine - everyday we're at risk of accident or emergency and our medical services are always in need of more blood. My husband has a rare blood type and, as much as I would sometimes be tempted to spill it, it is precious stuff and he donates it regularly. I bake him cookies for after - I'm not a monster! Blood donation is not something that many of us think of until the need is right in front of us. It's important to be prepared and who better to remind an audience of that than us film-makers with blood on the brain! It's an honour to be asked to contribute to this year's Massive Blood Drive by utterly heroic Jen and Sylvia Soska, who for me have already shown what it means to "Be A Hero".

DIRECTOR’S BIO

Dayna Noffke is a screenwriter and director, who has brought her unique brand of storytelling,
dark humor, fangirl-infused enthusiasm and obsessive work ethic to Atlanta, Georgia.

Her work in the horror genre is informed by her experiences and her lifelong love of film. Her
travels have taken her from a childhood in St. Louis to stints in New York, Boston, New Orleans and even Branson, Missouri. Along the way, she picked up a degree in physical anthropology/primatology, logged time on a research project on mantled howler monkeys in Ometepe, Nicaragua, spent a few years as a high school special education teacher, and earned herself a roller derby name.

Dayna fell into filmmaking after a chance encounter brought her to the set of Rob Zombie’s
Halloween 2. Within two months, she had written and directed her first short film with a cast and crew full of friends, including Andrew Shearer of Gonzoriffic films. She had caught the bug and directed 9 more short films between 2009 and 2017. 

Her film catalog runs the gamut from “backyard” no budget fare - such as the well-received 2011 film, MOUSE, praised for its naturalistic acting - to recent projects such as late 2017’s Teaser, a lush burlesque-inspired period piece that is hitting the festival circuit in 2018.

Dayna’s films have been screened at numerous festivals including Women in Horror events,
Rome International Film Festival, Spooky Empire’s Film Festival, Buried Alive, VHS, Florida
Film Festival among many others. Her screenplays have been chosen as official selections and finalists in screenplay competitions and showcases such as Oaxaca Film Festival, Stranger With My Face and Filmquest. 

Dayna is currently in development for a horror feature inspired by a classic Victorian short horror story, along with working on new short films and logging lots of time traveling with her family, visiting historical and haunted sites, riding roller coasters and forging friendships all along the way.

It is my pleasure to be a part of this collection of short films that celebrates the wonderful women of Horror."

Joe adds on the subject of blood donation:

"Blood is life. It's in all of us. For most of us, it flows in abundance. But there are those out there less fortunate. 

Donating blood means donating life. Now more than ever, we need to band together to help our brothers and sisters in need.

Not all of us can donate financially. But nearly all of us can donate the fluid of life to help someone else live theirs.

It's truly in you to give . Thank you for donating blood. Thank you for being a true hero. <3 font="">
