It's time for a brand new Women In Horror Month MASSIVE Blood Drive PSA (Public Service Announcement). You can't think horror without thinking blood so we took it upon ourselves to give back. Every year we send out the call to filmmakers from around the world to create their own shorts urging the importance of blood donation. And, yeah, they're all horror themed as we all know horror fans are the most generous people on the planet. This year we've made it bigger than ever with a recording breaking 29 filmmaking teams from all around the world!
DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language. If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don't watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We're not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are ;)
Vicky Tori Ella & Jasmine Martinez
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Vicky has been a writer since the age of 5, she watched her first horror movie at 6 and fell in love with Freddy Krueger. She had her mid-life crisis at 18, she doesn't have any children and she's not married. She believes that deep down we are all writers, as we are all
storytellers. We're all currently writing our own stories, adding to those blank pages.
Together with her film partner, Jasmine Martinez, she runs the production company Rare Deviant Productions.
Jasmine is a crazy Puerto Rican Swedish girl straight out of New Jersey who loves all things horror. She has a soft spot for Splatter and occult movies. She is the co-host of Bitches of Horror and also the proof reader for the independent underground gore magazine, "Goregasmic". Also a huge fan of games, music and movies in general.
Vicky's statement: Helping others has always been a priority of mine, even if that forces me to go out of my comfort zone. For example, I'm terrified of needles, but when you know you could help save a life by donating your blood, the outcome is so much greater than your fears.
Here's the thing, you get what you put out, therefore it's important to just be a decent fucking human being, which sounds easy enough, yet the world lacks kindness. It lacks people who put out good energy. And by doing good to others, you automatically bring out the best in
yourself. Never unscrew other people's lightbulbs in order for you to shine. Always pay it forward. You may not be thanked with words, but regardless, you will feel it in your heart. However you decide to make a change in this world, whatever your passion may be and wherever on our planet you leave your footprints, do so with kindness and pride and your head held high.
Jasmine's statement: I've been terrible at donating blood because of my phobia for needles. But when I was pregnant I learned not only that my blood-type was super important to people but I learned how to stand up to my fear and take those goddamn needles anyways. Now is the time that I and everyone else who's had some sort of bad excuse stand up and go Donate blood.
Look for a NEW WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSA every day with the last one appearing on February 28th.
