Well, it's about time! What a pleasure to see a genuinely feminist horror zine that also is genuinely literate, informative, and -- get this -- cleverly written. Hannah, I'm your admirer, so put me at the top of your list of fans.
-Herschell Gordon Lewis



"Ax Wound” is a derogatory term for a menstruating vagina. How perfect for a feminist horror zine title! It is my hope that “Ax Wound” will create a dialogue about gender in the horror/slasher/gore genre — a genre typically thought to reinforce patriarchal values. I want both the 'zine and the website to provide a safe, stimulating environment for feminist horror fans of all backgrounds to discuss the themes of gender, sexuality, and culture in the genre both past and present. Ax Wound will also serve as a platform to help promote and bring together women in the horror industry.

Hope you don’t mind us butting in once again for a moment with some more shameless promotion.

In case we haven’t met, let us introduce ourselves… We are Gary and Erin Slasher, of Hor-RIFF-ic Productions, the goriest couple in movie riffing to date. If you are not familiar with movie riffing… think Mystery Science Theater 3000. We’ve started our own line of Horror-themed iRiffs over at Rifftrax.

We thought all you Horror fans would be interested in checking out our 3rd victim… Sleepaway Camp

Follow the Cut (get it, CUT?!) for more info.Collapse )

Hello there! Hope you don’t mind us butting in for a moment with some shameless promotion.

First let us introduce ourselves… We are Gary and Erin Slasher, of Hor-RIFF-ic Productions, the goriest couple in movie riffing to date. If you are not familiar with movie riffing… think Mystery Science Theater 3000. We’ve started our own line of Horror-themed iRiffs over at Rifftrax.

A little bit about us… He’s your typical cleaver wielding psychopath and she’s a brain devouring zombie with a heart of gold. Having failed to make it in the horror movie biz ourselves we’ve set out to do the next best thing -- cut our successful colleagues to ribbons with sharp tongues and razor-like wit! No horror movie is safe. It’s going to be a bloodbath!

We thought all you Horror fans would be interested in checking out our first victim… Friday the 13th.

Follow the Cut (get it, CUT?!) for more info.Collapse )

Hey all
I am a big horror film fan and glad to have found this community. My interests lie in a combination of asian horror, classics from the 70's, grindhouse era b-movies and super shockers. Personally I am a film buff / accordion player / band videographer / poet / website editor.

Since I am new I thought I would share some link stuff - since it said it was ok in the profile info. hope you enjoy!
