About Me

Staci Layne Wilson

I'm the director of genre features:

Fetish Factory / Good Family Times / Dead Slate

And the author of horror books: 

The Tragedy Man / City of Devils / Dark Duet

I'm known for my work in the genre, having been the producer and host of the talk shows Inside Horror, Dread Central Live, and This Week In Horror.  I have written for Fangoria, Horror.com, and The SyFy Channel. I have appeared on Bravo, Reelz, AMC, M-TV and CNN as an expert in horror.

All of my professional life, I've heard comments along the lines of "women don't like horror" or producers saying they would hire a woman director for their horror movie "if I could find one." And then there's the folks who can only name Anne Rice as an author of scary books. 

So, I decided to create WomenInHorror.com and FemaleHorrorDirectors.com to show that yes, WE DO EXIST!

There are many wonderful women working in horror photography, art and design, special effects makeup, as webmasters, and more - but I've chosen to keep this site manageable and therefore am limiting the spotlight to the core storytellers.
