Hey there, creepy peeps!
And welcome to my blog! I'm Nightmare Maven, but I also answer to Vicky, Maven, or Queen of the Universe. I'm a HorrorTuber (Horror-Lover + YouTuber = HorrorTuber), freelance writer, and film studies student.
I've spent countless hours alone in my room, with the lights off, playing some terrifying film on my laptop. Unfortunately, many of my friends do not share the same enthusiasm for the macabre, and I can't geek-out as much as I'd like. So, here we are.
As a person who loves horror movies, and has access to the Internet, there are so many sources of information on scary films, television shows, books, and art. I simply want to write, chat, ramble, gush, and geek-out over the genre I love the most. This is more fun when other people are involved, so feel free to share, like, and comment. Or don't. This is the Internet. You can do as you please.
Some fun facts about me:
- I graduated from the University of Tampa in 2013. I majored in Communications and minored in Journalism, and I wrote for the newspaper, The Minaret. Here is an example of my work.
- I have my Masters degree from Full Sail University in New Media Journalism. I'm currently finishing another Masters degree from National University in Film Studies. Why two masters degrees? Easy. I love exploring my passions (and student loan debt)!
- I write for an awesome horror news/review blog called Morbidly Beautiful, and for some reason, they let me make videos for their YouTube channel, as well! Here is an example of an article and a video I did for the site.
- My good HorrorTube friend Spooky Astronauts and I host a weekly live stream called Does This Offend You during which we discuss offensive horror movies. Here's a link to Episode #4, one of my favorites!
- My favorite scary movies are Scream, House of 1000 Corpses, The Evil Dead, Trick 'r Treat, and The Craft.
Enjoy my website & Stay strange.
