[NEWS] Women OF Horror Join Forces For Good Cause

Every year internationally renowned identical twin filmmakers, the Soska Sisters (American Mary, Hellevator), invite you to bleed for an incredibly good cause: Women in Horror’s PSA for a Massive Blood Drive. Donating blood is something that many people find off-putting and terrifying. By using humor, innovation, and provocative imagery, this PSA will encourage viewers to face their fears and help out those in need of blood. The PSA premieres this February 1st 2017 on YouTube in honor of Women in Horror Recognition Month (#WiHM8).

For the fourth year in a row, the Soska Sisters have invited award-winning Canadian filmmaker Patricia Chica to present her vampire driven segment Las Cholas to be included in this year’s music video. The final edit includes different parts directed by various innovative, unique, and irreverent horror directors across the globe.

The musical track entitled “BLOOD” was created by Kevvy (Kevin James Maher) of FAKE SHARK. The collective is edited again by the talented Paolo Kalalo.

 

 

The concept of Las Cholas is to showcase Los Angeles’ most unique Scream Queens: Tiffany Shepis, Tonya Kay, Devanny Pinn, and veteran actress Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist). Philip Friedman (Insidious), Michelle Romano (producer), Ivan Sharudo (actor) and Patricia Chica (director) also have a cameo in the short.

“I appear in the video as a Chola, not because I want to be on camera, but because I needed to be inside the convertible car with the actresses, so I could direct them and give instructions to the cinematographer Rachel Dunn. I also did camera B myself while the car was moving on the road. That’s why I dressed up like a Chola, to look like I belonged in there”, explains director Patricia Chica.

The full-length version of the story will be released later this year.
