This year we are excited to announce
THE SECOND ANNUAL WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH CELEBRATION
At Dark Delicacies In Burbank, CA
February 12th, 2011
This year Dai Green and Reyna Young, in partnership with Dark Delicacies in Burbank, CA, will be hosting an event for WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH.
WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH was founded last year by writer Hannah Neurotica (Ax Wound Magazine) as a way to get women in the horror industry together and celebrate our strides and existence in the industry.
After she proposed the idea, many women across the world took notice and planned events everywhere from England to Canada to the US. Film fests, mini conventions, and blood drives (with the tag line “Bleed For Your Favorite Women In Horror”) spread like wild fire across the globe,
Female filmmakers, actresses, journalists, writers, special effects artists, and many others took this as an opportunity to get out there and celebrate the leaps and bounds that they their gender has made from just being seen as “the victims in a good horror film” to the strong personalities that drive much of horror films today.
They came together on their own accord and made worldwide press for these events.
We are hoping to repeat that again for 2011 and make it even larger.
Dark Delicacies was home to the “Women In Horror/Bleed For Haiti Event” last year that was arranged by Tara Cardinal and Devanny Pinn.
Celebrity attendees included James Gunn, Bianca Barnett, Dai Green, Kevin Tenney, AJ Bowen, Jeff Dylan Graham, Elissa Dowling, Hart Fisher, and many more…
This year Dai Green of HorrorNews.net and Reyna Young from LastDoorWayProductions.com have teamed up with Sue and Del Howison to bring Burbank an amazing meeting of minds and event for women in all aspects of the horror industry.

Each of the girls will have a table set up where they will be signing autographs, selling their DVD’s and 8x10s, and Melissa will be demonstrating special effects techniques in the front window.
We will also be hosting a food drive to help refill the local food banks to help them recoup after the Holiday rush.
People who bring in five (5) canned food or nonperishable food items will be entered into a special raffle to win some very unique prizes.
This is a free event to the public and we hope to have as many of our press friends there to help us celebrate the spirit of the month and raise even more awareness for next years festivities.
We are also accepting sponsors for this event. We are looking for Independent companies to provide giveaways and items for gift bags. We are asking that a minimum of three (3) items be sent for giveaway or 20 items sent to be included in the gift bags.
