February brings two things: freezing cold weather that makes you question why anyone would want to continue living is such an ice filled, suckhole of a planet, and Women in Horror month. The month long celebration highlights the contributions women have made in front of and behind the camera, within genre literature, art and all other aspects of the genre.
Jay Kay has got to be one of the hardest working men in show business. His weekly “Horror Happens” radio show has hosted conversations with almost 700 genre luminaries in less than four years. For February, Horror Happens has lined up over two dozen guests to discuss their contributions to the field, where horror is headed and why contributions from all walks of life matter.
