31 Days of Halloween: Totally ’80s Horrorthon

In a few weeks, I will be headed to my first Texas Frightmare Weekend. I’m beyond excited (have you seen that guest list? Dario Frakking Argento!), but I’m also pretty nervous. You see, I have a bit of a fandom inferiority complex. No matter how much I know about a subject, I’m always convinced that … Continue reading Fake Horror Geek Girl
