Ms. Horror Blogosphere: Entry #1

Blogger: Nicki Nix
Blog: Hey! Look Behind You!

I'm a very simple girl who happens to love horror movies. Looking at me, one would not think that I am the kind of girl that screams "Yes!" or "SWEET!" during gory scenes in movies. If you saw me at a convention, you would think I was one of those girls forced to go there by their boyfriend. But nope, I'm there for me. Horror movies are my porn--they excite me, I'm entertained and when it's over, I'm satisfied.

Are significant others generally freaked out or psyched by your horror proclivities?
So far, I haven't had that problem with freaking anyone out. When initially meeting people, I tend to scale back on the "I LOVE HORROR!!!" *jazz hands* I think it's better to ease "normal" people into it. I've actually gotten people into a lot of movies they wouldn't normally see or ever hear of, so that makes my day.

Why is it that there seems to be more female horror fans than ever before? Are more women watching horror, or are more women admitting to watching horror?
We've always been around, seen but not heard, but it's good to know that a lot of us are just saying "Fuck it" and coming out with our girly fandom. We represent the ballsy chicks that don't need to hold a guy's hand during a movie or cover our eyes during certain scenes. We mock the guys that shiver, we cheer on great kills and clap when the killer is defeated.

How would you best describe your blog?
To sum it up, it's just me jibber jabbin' about stuff. I love to ramble on about horror things so that's basically what I do. My blog is reaching it's first year in a few months and I'm still trying to find myself in it. If I see a movie that I really love, I spooge-out about it on the blog. Also, as a chick, I want to express that girls like me are just as hardcore about horror as any guy out there.

Is image more important for female horror bloggers than male? If so, why?
I think it definitely helps females. We are cute, sexy and we love horror, the perfect combo. Guys can look however they want, and if their content is good, people will read it. If chicks are hot, people are going to visit their site.

If you could have the baby of one figure in the world of horror, real or fictional, who would it be? Not including Bruce Campbell/Ash…
I'm not a fan of kids but if I had to choose someone, I'd go with Terry O'Quinn as Jerry Blake in the original Stepfather movie. He tries hard to be a good father but once those fuckers get out of line....well, we just start all over again with new kids and hope that this time they'll be good!

Why do all of you like Campbell so much, anyway?
Bruce Campbell is what sexy wants to be when it grows up. He's ruggedly handsome, witty and charming, what girl or guy would turn this man down? No one!

Love the convention photos, especially the one from They Live. So jealous. Where were your sunglasses? ;)

Hey! Look Behind You! said...

Out of all of my "hands on balls" pics, that one is my favorite :)

And I didn't have the sunglasses :(

Heck yeah!!!

I love the picture with the chainsaw. I agree, more girls should come out and say how much they love their horror too. Good stuff.
