I am super excited about our taxidermy theme! I have been fascinated by women in horror, about how our experiences and relationships with our bodies inform our perspectives on horror and gore. I am currently working on a taxidermy poem/flash fiction for this space, but I think this trailer really embodies how I view the theme: body as object. Body modification. The complexity and intelligence of women merged with sexuality and objectification. Thinking, thinking, thinking. The Soska sisters are bringing a startling, complex vision to horror films, and Katherine Isabelle (AKA Ginger from Ginger Snaps!) stars.
