Cyber Scream Queen of the Day: Andre Dumas

It's time for our special Women In Horror Month posts, The Cyber Scream Queen of the Day! The Woman you see highlighted this day and every day this month deserves the recognition for their outstanding achievements in online horror writing.


Name: Andre Dumas
Blog: The Horror Digest
Bio: I've been into horror movies ever since I discovered the beauty of Killer Klowns From Outer Space at the age of 5. From that point on- horror movies became a sort of roller coaster type of entertainment for me. I was terrified to watch them but I just HAD to do it- and afterwards I was exhilarated and completely pumped about what I had just seen.
I began the Horror Digest in July 09 and ever since then have been spitting out reviews like crazy. I review pretty much everything but the horror that really warms my heart- are the more artful and meaningful films. I have a longtime obsession with beautiful blood on film, poetic voice overs and creepy songs- things that I think can really make a film. I firmly believe in the idea of a terrible beauty- things that are so terrifying but still represented in a way that makes them truly memorable. In my reviews I concentrate on the elements of the film that stick with us to the grave. Those moments in horror movies that you will always somehow picture when you are alone in a dark room and terrified by your own shadow.
My goal as a blogger is to expose readers not only to movies they have never seen- but also to allow them to see a movie in a very different light than they have before. Writing has always been my passion and hopefully a little sass, mixed with some horror knowledge and just overall coolness will lead The Horror Digest to bigger and better things.

I have met this legend IN REAL LIFE. She is every bit as cool as you might think.

She's kinda weird.

Thanks Rhonny!

Hahah MATT stop these shenanigans at once! I am no weirder than your desire to own a pair of Official Sleepaway Camp Jean Shorts.
