#159: Every Day is Halloween at ScareLA!

scareLogoColor01(1)ScareLa is less than a month away! That means not only is Halloween starting early, but so is Horrible Imaginings because we will have a film block at the convention! It is so exciting for us to be part of this amazing convention, and what better way to celebrate than with a friendly horror-loving conversation with Emily Louise Rua from ScareLA!

Emily took a look at our program from 2015 and chose some films to showcase. I wanted to see who the person was behind her choices, and also give her the chance to share the mission of ScareLA. In the podcast, we discuss:

1. What Emily does at ScareLA
2. Who is Emily Louise Rua, and what is her history with the horror genre?
3. What criteria goes into picking films for ScareLA's screening rooms?
4. What are some of the things horror fans have to look forward to?
5. Horror lovers think of Halloween as year round!
6. Zombies
7. Haunts
8. Extreme haunts

Don't miss the Horrible Imaginings Block August 6th at ScareLA:

#147: Halloween Super Special with SoCal Horror Authors!

halloween sdplAmazingly, it has been one month since my episode reflecting on Horrible Imaginings Film Festival. I have several episodes awaiting post production, but it's the Halloween Season and this one needed to move to the front of the line! I was invited to a live panel Halloween event at the San Diego Public Library on Saturday to discuss horror in both literature and film! It was like a live version of my podcast, so of course I had to record it for as many of you to enjoy as possible! Thank you to Anthony Trevino for the invitation! Joining me on stage to offer their horror insights were:

David Agranoff, author of Amazing Punk Stories. Follow him on Twitter at @DAgranoffAuthor

We talk about our favorite authors and stories before going into our experiences with horror in film. This is a pretty great discussion with lots of people who have had their lives changed by scary stories. Truly, a celebration of Halloween!
