I have a couple of posts coming up that talk about different aspects of my trip to Transylvania for the International Vampire Film and Arts Festival (IVFAF). For now, please to enjoy the PowerPoint of the paper I presented for the academic conference. I’ll be submitting the full paper for publication.
If you’re headed to StokerCon 2018 this weekend, you can catch me a couple of times on Friday, March 2. First, at the Ann Radcliffe Academic Conference, presenting my paper “The Dark Heart of Human Nature: The Necessity of Extreme Horror” on Panel 1: Gender Studies / 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM. Then, as part of the panel for A (Haunted) House with Many Rooms—Horror Sub-Genres (Moderator: Tim Waggoner; Co-Panelists: Don D’Auria, Frazer Lee, Donald Sidney-Fryer, Paul Tremblay) at 5:00 PM in State Suite A.

Already suffering from dreams of a strange, ghost-infested house in the woods, Mara begins to question the very existence of reality. She is forced to confront the truth about her older sister’s death and the reason the ghosts have chosen her as their conduit.

Anyone who has ever had a pet knows the inevitable will happen, and that the circle of life is cruel and unavoidable.
