Snake Pit at BCM Horror Film Festival

Snake Pit screened on October 25 at BCM Horror Film Festival. As part of the Viscera 2007 compilation DVD, Snake Pit has found a way to hit a much bigger audience.

Here are some of the reviews about the Viscera 2007 compilation DVD. 

"The Viscera Film Festival is one that not only has a unique vision but the strength of the entries to back that vision up and that terrifying combination makes the project a very thrilling prospect for horror fans...of both sexes." Bloody Disgusting

"...the films on Viscera are stand-alone and awesome, each with a very distinct flavor and tone.  This proves that women's interests in horror are as varied as Shannon Lark's wacky and colorful creations and Brandy Rainey's chilling story of traditional horror survival." Pretty Scary

"It's about time someone showed that women can do horror just as well as the good ol'boys, and this grouop of women filmmakers definitely represent the "new wave" of horror." Fatally Yours

I just love getting emails from Fangoria Magazine's 2009 Spooksmodel, Shannon Lark informing me of Snake Pit's screenings across the US. She coordinates the Viscera Film Festival and the Chainsaw Mafia which put together the compilation DVD and has been the driving force for it's distribution. 

I highly recommend submitting your horror shorts to the Viscera Film Festival. (Deadline is December 31, 2008.)  They are obviously serious about helping women filmmakers hit the target market.
