"Jennifer’s Bodies is a roving annual festival of female-helmed horror movies and part of Women In Horror Recognition Month, an international assortment of affiliated events organised partly to highlight just how much women can and do contribute to the genre outwith the typically accepted factors of tits, ass and mezzosoprano screaming."

And So We Begin...Official Jennifer's Bodies 2014 Selection....

Okay so it is with great pleasure that I can announce the first shorts to be accepted into Jennifer's Bodies 2014.  I have a wicked little array of shorts here, as well as a number of features for your viewing pleasure....all of which I'll be announcing over the coming week.  :)  

So first up is Melanie Light's Escape.  A fucking awesome little short that I cannot wait to unleash upon you all.  I'm also looking forward to sharing Melanie's "shut the fuck up and switch your phone off" ident too.  Ha! 

Next official entry is that of my dear friend Jennifer Campbell, the amazing award winning director/writer from Vancouver, and a downright awesome chick in her own right!!  To find out a wee bit more about this lovely lady, you can check out this review of Jen's first short HIKE, as well as an interview with the lovely lady herself when HIKE first screened at Jennifer's Bodies back in 2012.  :)  

This February, I will be screening Jen's new award winning short Bruised.  A short that is absolutely spectacular and very much deserving of its multitude of awards that it has been receiving.

"Body horror has been revived, there's no doubt (last year's Best Short Films featured 2 of them, even).  Jennifer Campbell takes it down a notch and keeps it very real by giving her film a working class twist to it, which makes it not only more interesting than most, but gives it an angle that adds so much more to it."  Film Bizarro

In the meantime, go check out my review of the film over at my Musings of a Morleysaurus blog and drop the film a LIKE on Facebook, and keep up to date with the goings on of this wicked little short. :)
