What a privileged it was for Daisy Dukes to be asked to grab a drink with Dan Lee of 52 Weeks of Horror in honor of Women In Horror Month! Sadly only 2/3rds of the Daisy Dukes team could be present for the interview, but we had a blast and Stephanie was absolutely present in spirit.

Here's a little excerpt from the article to get you hooked:

 

When people hear the name Nashville, their thoughts immediately turn to cowboy hats, rhinestones, and the Grand Ole Opry. Twanging country music and smokey honky tonk bars fill the mind and evoke a very specific style. The one thing no one expects is a vibrant and growing horror community deep in the heart of Music City.

Daisy Dukes, so named because they make “short shorts” is the collaborative brainchild of Dycee Wildman, Jennifer Bonior, and Stephanie Adams. The trio met during the 48 Hour Film Project several years ago and have been working together ever since making films the way they want. I had the privilege of meeting them first at Women in Horror and then again earlier this month when we sat down to discuss their contribution to genre filmmaking and the future.

You can read the rest of this fun-filled interview HERE. It's always a good time when horror fans get together. Let's all get together more often and talk about the movies that inspire us!

We are Proud to be Women in Horror by Daisy Dukes

February is Women In Horror Month. HORROR! How incredible is that? 9 years ago this month a grassroots movement to support and celebrate the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries was born, and we at Daisy Dukes are eternally grateful for that. As a group of 3 female filmmakers who adore all things horror, this month holds a special place in our dark hearts.

The climate is changing. It's been a long time coming but people are finally starting to realize the unique pitfalls of being a women in the entertainment industry, and well, just being a woman on planet earth. The #MeToo and Times Up movements are shining a much needed and horrifying spotlight on the sexism that has been creating hostile and dangerous environments for women. At times like these, it's hard not to be inspired to stand up, speak your mind, and do what you can to help push these discussions along.

Everything we do as Daisy Dukes, both on screen and behind the camera, is meant to talk about and create a world where women can be and/or do anything. The spirit with which we and our incredibly talented teams approach each project is infused with a sense of not only creativity and curiosity, but also empowerment. We are proud to be women making quality content in an all too often male-stereotyped genre. Horror is for everyone and we consider it an honor to work with all the women and men who have graced our sets. So here's to all those out there who are celebrating Women In Horror Month this year, we hope your month is filled with all the gross-out gore moments your heart desires.

Inside The House, the 80's style slasher with a twist, by Daisy Dukes has been selected to screen at the Bloody Women! Women in Horror Month Festival in Dublin, Ireland this month. Here's what WiHM has to say about themselves:

 

Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.

WIHM Dublin has been organising events since February 2016. This coming year sees the first Dublin festival to celebrate the 9th year of Women in Horror Recognition Month.

With over 50% of the film crew on Inside The House being females, we could not be more pumped to be a part of such an incredible movement and festival!
