My Summer Lair Chapter #175: What Makes A Horror Classic A…Classic?

Carolyn Mauricette is a once a year friend: I see her every year at the annual Blood in the Snow Film Festival which is incredible: Toronto has an outstanding horror community.

As for Carolyn, she is an accomplished horror film writer. She’s written for Rue Morgue, Hollywood Suite, Graveyard Shift Sisters and she is a Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer-approved critic. View From The Dark is her deep dive into race and representation of people of color in genre film.

As for Blood in the Snow, she is one of 5 programmers for the Canadian film festival which broadcasts horror, sci-fi, and underground cinema. BITS was founded by Kelly Micheal Stewart in 2012. He was on My Summer Lair last year. Blood in The Snow is one of our best film festivals as you’re about to hear it has so much goodness, gore, and ghouls to offer. And this year it’s on TV via the Super Channel. For more details on that here’s a handy video.

Among this year’s films, we discuss Hall, Come True, Hail to the Deadites, and For The Sake of Vicious. Though stick around for our Doctor Who debate as well as the astonishing number of horror movies we get into from Blacula to The Planters.
