Madelina-Horn-Profane-Exhibit-4

What do you think the relationship is between sex and horror?

MH: They both play on the same idea of taboos + boundary pushing. They both attract the same kind of curiosity from the hearts of humanity. Since society is still largely based on religious moral standards, we see both sex + violence as taboo + wrong, yet are instinctively drawn to them, thus getting a rush from seeking out such naughtiness. Both sexuality … Continue reading

myctophobia-Bryan-Wolford-7

There is nothing that the Black Saint loves more than talking with young directors looking to make some waves in the horror genre with their latest productions (OK…I do enjoy making my kids play in traffic a lot too, it relieves tension).
