The women of the “#SPARK” panel have appeared at San Diego Comic Con, Stan Lee’s Comikaze, and Wondercon and continue to grow their list of panelists and events.The Dweeb Darlings are currently in pre-production on a few more projects that keep fostering these ideals.

Shriekfest has a Ghoulish Opening Night Party

I went to an event I look forward to every year last night, the Shriekfest Film Festival Opening Night Party. My friend, the lovely and oh so talented actress Denise Gossett created the festival.

She started the festival in early 2001 when starred in the horror film “Chain Of Souls” and was searching for ways to get the word out. She soon discovered there really weren’t any film festivals focusing on horror and wisely came up with the idea to start a horror film festival.

“I told my sister-in-law Kimberlee my “silly” idea. She loved it! And even though we had no idea what we were doing, we immediately got to work, said Denise.

“I always say naivete will take you far and we are proof. We thought doing this festival would be fun and perhaps we’d be able to make some money to put towards making our own films. Little did we know how popular this “little” festival would become! After a few years Kimberlee ended up moving back to her home town in Michigan to raise her son. Her brother, my husband, Todd Beeson stepped in and 3 years ago I finally “let” him retire,” she added.
