Salem Horror Film Festival 2020
In October 2020, I was commissioned by Little White Lies magazine to review the first virtual Salem Horror Festival, hosted online due to COVID-19 restrictions. Alongside new releases, Salem’s audiences were treated to classic monster films, including The Howling, independent films, and nostalgic podcasts revisiting iconic ’80s horror ( including The Purple Stuff Podcast on Gremlins).

I'm Christina Brennan, a writer and reviewer whose work has appeared in various places, including Little White Lies, Horror Homeroom, Horrified and Ghoulish Media. My first book will be on George Sluizer's film Spoorloos (translated from Dutch as The Vanishing) – a film that Stanley Kubrick called the most terrifying he'd ever seen. The book will be coming out with Devil's Advocate series, the imprint of Liverpool University Press devoted to exploring cult and classic horror cinema. I've been a reviewer for the Salem Horror Film Festival, and I write reviews for academic journals, including Revenant and the Irish Gothic and Horror Journal. In the recent past, I did a PhD on North American post-apocalyptic and doomsday fiction.
