It’s so hard choosing just one, but I will have to go with Dead Silence.

My favorite has to be my tribute to Ari Aster’s, Midsommar.
When did you start doing horror art?
My horror art started in junior high school when I started drawing creepy shirt designs for my band.

Least favorite sequel?
My least favorite horror movie sequel is Candyman II (Farewell to the Flesh). Thankfully Nia DaCosta made Candyman 2021 which I consider the true sequel to the original Candyman; it was amazing.
Favorite horror movie character?
My favorite horror movie character has to be Mary Shaw from Dead Silence. She scares the heck outta me!

I’d like to see the Grabber from The Black Phone come back. I’d love to see and learn about his origin story.
What film do you think deserves a sequel that never got one?
I would love to see a sequel to The Ninth Gate. That ending is one of the biggest cliffhangers in my opinion.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space. Sorry, but I had to say it lol the character design is great but certainly not my favorite movie.
What horror film do you think is underrated?
Fallen with Denzel Washington. That movie truly scared me.
