We’re celebrating Women in Horror Month all February long on Corpse Club, and to kick things off, Heather Wixson is joined by special guest Ashlee Blackwell, co-writer and producer of the new documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror and the founder and editor of Graveyard Shift Sisters, “an online resource dedicated to the scholarship surrounding the experiences, representations, achievements, and creative works of Black women and women of color in the horror and science fiction genres.” Listen as Ashlee discusses her horror roots, her insightful writing on Graveyard Shift Sisters, and her unforgettable experiences working on Horror Noire. Heather and Ashlee also talk about the everlasting impact of Candyman and memorable black female characters from horror movies, including Sheila (Toy Newkirk) from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master and Jeryline (Jada Pinkett Smith) from Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the first installment of our Women in Horror Month 2019 celebration!
