Women in Horror Month Blood Drive

Women in Horror Month Blood Drive, PSA #3 is Here!

Happy third day of Women in Horror Month, Souls! House of Tortured Souls is proud to present the second entry in this year’s Women in Horror Month Blood Drive.

Today’s PSA comes to us from Mark Miller & Christian Francis.

Once again, before we continue, here’s the obligatory disclaimer (not that we need it, right Souls?):

DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language.
If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don’t watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We’re not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are 😉

And without further ado, behold the killer third Blood Drive PSA of Women in Horror Month:

The Coming Dawn Ministry

By Mark Miller & Christian Francis

MINI BIO, Mark Miller:

Mark has been working as a writer since 2005 when he started as a columnist for OCWeekly. Since then has edited two major novels (The Scarlet Gospels & Abarat: Absolute Midnight by Clive Barker) Released two novels of his own: Hellraiser: The Toll and Next Testament. Written countless comics, including Heavy Metal Magazine, Next Testament, Hellraiser & Hellraiser Bestiary (BOOM! Comics), Hellraiser: Anthology (Seraphim Comics), and The Steam Man (Dark Horse).

He has previously directed segments for Fun Sized Horror 2 and Virus of the Dead, as well as promotional trailers for Abarat: Absolute Midnight and The Sickness.

MINI BIO, Christian Francis:

Christian is a writer and designer whose work has appeared across multiple mediums… Well… that’s what he thinks. He’s probably wrong. Everyone is most likely lying to him, and creating fake websites and orchestrating far too elaborate practical jokes to make it look like his work is out there.
He also really, really hates mushrooms and has a weird obsession with hand puppets.
Being a good bio, I asked Christian what else he wanted to include here. He told me to ensure that everyone knows that the camera does indeed add 10lbs… Sometimes 20lbs… And as well as this, it also makes you a really bad actor.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

The Soska Sisters are leading a charge for change. The Women in Horror Blood Drive is a lot more than just getting people to donate blood (which in itself is enough reason to take part) but they are also raising awareness and promoting equality, not only for women within the horror industry, but providing a voice for unknown filmmakers. This Blood Drive is about community, and expanding that community for the good of the industry – the fact it will may also save lives by getting people to donate blood? Well… the questions should be, how could we say no? #wearewiththesoskas

Remember, Souls, there’ll be a new PSA every day up to and including 1 March 2018, and please check out the official WiHM website for more on Women in Horror Month.
