Women in Horror Month Blood Drive

WiHM9 Blood Drive, PSA #5 – Got Blood?

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

Today’s PSA comes to us from Aislinn Clarke.

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

As a filmmaker 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”.

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.
