Continuing our coverage for Women in Horror Month, we caught up with Shriekfest’s Denise Gossett. Denise is the Founder and Director of Shriekfest, a horror film festival and screenplay competition in Los Angeles that is now in its 18th year. Denise talks to us about her life in horror and her decision to start the festival.
Stephanie Shamblin Gray: Have you always been a fan of horror?
Denise Gossett: I have! Horror films were the only rated “R” films my parents would let me and my brother watch. Weird, I know…so, we took full advantage!
