Name: Rebecca Sayers (B-Movie Becky)
Blog: The Horror Effect
Bio: Upon the lap of my guffawing father, I was raised on the horror film. Armed with a clunky VHS camcorder, I fell in love with filmmaking at the age of thirteen in my rural hometown of Maple Valley, Washington. Countless short films and bottles of fake blood later, I went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production, with minors in Honors and Legal Studies, at Chapman University in Orange, California. After graduation, I married the man I met over a friendly game of Counter-Strike nine years ago. We have since graduated from Counter-Terrorist vs. Terrorists to Infected vs. Survivors. When it comes to filmmaking, we are partners in crime and are constantly working on new projects. I am currently editing a documentary on ecology for a non-profit organization and continuing to build my resume with film experience.
My blog, The Horror Effect, is mainly comprised of reviews (reviews that I hope are considered thoughtful), but I also share filmmaking stories, my short films, some of my goofy artwork, and my adventures as a horror fan. One of my favorite features that readers really seem to enjoy is the CAPS review, which is a review comprised of screen captures and my captions. It’s like a children’s picture book with lots of puns and sarcastic remarks. Above all, I try to incorporate truly reflective views of the horror film, without forgetting to have a sense of humor about the genre.
