Cyber Scream Queen of the Day: Rebecca Sayers

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: 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.

Becky rules! She's my most favorite blogger to disagree with because she comes at you with knowledge!

My favorite thing is her analysis of films from the perspective of someone who does film work.

Power blogger!

The Horror Effect was the first pure horror blog I stumbled upon last year and made me realize there was a nice little community where I would feel right at home inside the web.
