WiHM Blood Drive PSA 20, Just A Prick by Tonjia Atomic & Mi Chelle Nessk

WiHM9 Blood Drive, PSA #21 – Just A Prick

Early morning, Souls! It’s the twenty-second day of Women in Horror Month, and House of Tortured Souls is proud to present the twenty-first entry in this year’s Women in Horror Month Blood Drive.

I’d like apologize personally for the delay on this release to Tonjia Atomic & Mi Chelle Nessk. I am having technical difficulties as well as issues with one of my fangs…

From the Official Press Release comes this introduction:

I’ve known Tonjia Atomic for many years and I am very happy to announce her and Mi Chelle Nessk’s next instalment for the Women in Horror Month Massive Blood Drive PSAs.
These two are incredibly talented directors, multi-talented artists, and astonishingly hard-working professionals. I don’t want to give away anything about their PSA, so just keep an eye out for cameos and lots of other fun (I guess grown up) stuff. Not 18A, but it gets pretty murdery.

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 😉

Without further ado, behold the powerful twenty-first Blood Drive PSA of Women in Horror Month:

Tonjia Atomic is an award-winning filmmaker, actress, musician, and writer. Her films include Plain Devil and Walking to Linas. Her writing has been featured in several online and print magazines.

It means a lot to me to be a part of the Women in Horror Month blood drive PSAs. As an anemic I am unable to give blood. Participating in the PSAs is a way for me to be able to contribute something by encouraging others to donate blood. I’m proud to be a part of this group of talented filmmakers. What better way than horror to remind us that we all bleed? After all, it’s in you to give.


Michelle Nessk is an award-winning indie horror filmmaker, dancer, musician, and artist out of the Pacific Northwest. Best known for their well-regarded & controversial first full feature film: O. Unilateralis, as well as the annual showcase series Horrors of the PNW. The showcase has premiered at Crypticon Seattle every year for the last five years, where Michelle plays horror host Zee Monsta. Much of Michelle’s work is laced with social commentary regarding rape culture and is often connected to charities and non-profits that focus on domestic abuse survivor advocacy. Their band ANU performs at various horror and sci-fi festivals in the Pacific Northwest. Michelle is the owner of production company Gloomy Sunday Productions and the horror publication The Blood Shed.


I’m so grateful to have gotten to participate in the 2018 Women in Horror Massive Blood Drive PSA. I don’t give blood, I take it. Because I’m severely anemic, I depend upon the generosity of others to give in order to survive. This project has not only given me the opportunity to work with the incredible Tonjia Atomic (who also happens to be anemic), but to truly show my gratitude to all the heroes who open their veins to save lives. Thank you so much for letting us be part of this.

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