Kids Say The Darnedest Things


 If you're honest with yourself, children frighten you. And they should. It's no coincidence the masters of horror utilize children to bring out the goose-flesh (Think: The Shining, Insidious, The Omen, The Ring, The Poltergeist, The Exorcist...) Why are children so scary? Because they remember who they used to be.

Unlocking the Secrets of the Universe with Reality TV


We all have our guilty pleasures. When I'm in the process of hitting a writing deadline, I clean the slate with some really questionable choices. I don't want to watch anything that engages my brain, because that poor slop has been spent. I need my heart engaged. I need to feel again in order to come back to the world.

Big Love!


Happy Valentine's Day everyone! My heart is just bleeding love right now for all of the amazing people that were part of #DarkMatters at the Telus World of Science last night. What an amazing community of freaks we have in Edmonton!

And a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out and supported the film festival!  Let me tell you, it's TERRIFYING to put your work out there to a bunch of strangers. It really takes a lot of guts. The work showcased last night ranged from brand new filmmakers to pros about to launch their first feature with national distribution, so I really have to thank the amazing audience for showing such love and support to these hardworking artists!

Speaking of hardworking artists, Andrea Beca - who debuted her film "Cooties" last night, is releasing her first short film "Flat Life" online today! It's the best VD treat ever. The film stars Ainsley Hillyard and is inspired by a true, heart-wrenching story! Watch it now then head over to Kissing Habit Films and leave her some love notes!

#DarkMatters


#DarkMatters

Thursday, February 13 from 7-10pm
Telus World of Science
Edmonton, AB
*ADULTS ONLY* 
Please Wear a Costume!



Little may you know... once a month, the Telus World of Science Centre hosts Adults Only parties where  you can explore all the exhibits without having to push a toddler out of the way. And there is seriously cool stuff for us to dabble in. Last month, I was privileged to meet a real owl and play with his regurgitated pellets to look for skulls and bones! It was like sifting through black cotton candy to find dead treats. AMAZING! So when I was asked to be part of the John Cox "How to Make a Monster" exhibit and bring some of my strange friends along with me, I said, "but of course..." in a British accent. Like a lady.

It's a Monster's Ball & Costume Party with all kinds of fun treats for the horror enthusiast or horr-curious! Vance Avery  - who you may have seen BLOWING THINGS UP on the Discovery Channel, will be making sure you have the absolute time of your life! I seriously feel like Stephan from SNL when I describe this to you. It will definitely be Edmonton's coolest parties of 2014. We'll have:
  • Organ Dissections (Brains, Eyeballs, Hearts!)
  • Weird Creatures (real Spiders, Snakes, Oh MY!)
  • Science Experiments with Fire and Electricity (Hollar at ya, Tesla)
  • Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream
  • The Bizarre Monster Creations of Travis Shewchuck from Ravenous EFX
  • Get Zombiefied by The Theatre Garage 
  • Spooky Photobooth
  • Shut up, do I have to go on? Buy your tickets already!
  • And...

Film Screening!

Yeah. There's THAT too! I have curated an INCREDIBLE short film festival of local Canadian talent. We are taking over the Star Theatre to show you some really impressive work from people you should know.

We have the Edmonton Premiere of Skeleton Girl by Bleeding Art Industries, directed/animated by Steven Hanulik and Leo WieserThe Hunt by Insurrection Films, The Last Video Store by local heroes Cody Kennedy and Tim Rutherford (House of Heathens), Cover by  Tito Guillen (Hyperphotonic Films), a little vamp comedy a la Truckstop Bloodsuckers and a special promo of the upcoming feature film WOLF COP directed by Lowell Dean (Echolands Creative).





ALSO: We will be showing some the official selection of the Edmonton Short Film Festival Suprise Party Directed by Jamie Scott and the debut of Andrea Beca's new short COOTIES, starring myself & the hilarious Trent Wilkie (who I know much better now... you'll see...)

IF YOU NEED A COSTUME... and I suggest you DRESS to IMPRESS, the beautiful Ghouls at the Theatre Garage will give you 20% off your rental.
