Too many male horror bloggers - it's time for some girl power :)
This month's HBOTM is "MEMOIRS OF A SCREAM QUEEN", the wonderful blog of Jenny Krueger, a cool and very nice girl from Salt Lake City, Utah.
Jenny is obsessed with all things horror, be it movies, be it monsters, be it serial killers. Her blog entries are always very detailed and insightful, her writing style is inviting and compelling and she's always completely honest about the things she writes.
Plus: every now and then, she posts gory pics of herself :)
Forget about Jamie Lee Curtis - Obey your new Scream Queen! =)
Hi Jenny! Who are you and why do you blog?
Heeey! I'm Jenny Krueger, Scream Queen, Zombie Lover and all around bad ass!
I blog because horror movies and writing are my two passions in life and I wanted to combine them. What better way to get your thoughts out on all things horror then starting a horror blog?! I've always said I put the Whore in Horror. ;)
I've always been into scary movies ever since I was little. The movie that made me a true hardcore fan was "Freddy Vs. Jason", that was also the movie that spawned my love for Freddy Krueger.
Who is your favorite horror director (and why)?
Ha! That would be Wes Craven. Why? Because he created "A Nightmare on Elm Street"! I also love "Scream", "Red Eye" and "Cursed".
What are your alltime horror favorites (at least five)?
Good thing you gave me a limit. I would go on and on since I have a butt load of favorite movies.
My top 5 would have to be:
- Children of the Corn (1984)
- A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
- Freddy Vs. Jason
- My Bloody Valentine 3D
- Dawn of the Dead (1978)
What's the worst horror movie you've seen so far?
Worst horror movie? Hmmm... I'm not sure if I can pin point a movie that was the worst but I can name off a few that I thought sucked ass.
- "Drag Me To Hell": The trailer made it look like it was pure horror but It was more of a horror comedy that failed. I felt like I was in Hell watching it.
- "The Crazies" Remake: I went to the theatre thinking this was a zombie movie, it was not. And I was PISSED!
- "The Haunting of Molly Hartley": I don't even have to explain why, everyone knows.
Most of my friends don't like horror films. How about your friends?
I have a small few that enjoy horror movies but not to the same extent as me. Other than that, no I don't. That's one of the main reasons I started my horror blog. I wanted to be able to discuss all things horror with people and make new friends that like the same things I do.
Choose: Freddy? Jason? Leatherface? Michael? Chucky? Other?
We all know the answer to that. FREDDY!! Then it would go Jason, Leatherface, Michael and the Leprechaun. I replaced Chucky with the Leprechaun cause Chucky makes me cry.
Choose: US horror? European horror? Asian horror? Other?
I mainly go for US horror but there are a lot of European horror movies that are seriously rad. I'm sorry but I can't stand Asian horror.
Do you prefer watching horror at home or at the theater?
Both is fun but I do prefer watching it at home so I can avoid the obnoxious screaming from the stupid teenage girls trying to show off to their wannabe gangsta, Justin Bieber look-alike boyfriends.
I like rock and metal music like Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Papa Roach, My Chemical Romance. I love, love, love 80's love songs and rock songs.
What do you read?
Anything from Stephen King. I love Biographies, mainly of serial killers. I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. I also read COSMO. My mom calls it the Smut Magazine. :D
Tell me the first 3 things that come to your mind when you think about Austria (not Australia):
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arnie, ARNIE!!! I Freakin' LOVE Arnold!
Anything else you wanna tell us?
Have you guys ever eaten Bagel Bites? Seriously, it's a party in your mouth!
LOL Haven't tried them yet, but I will :) Thank you, Jen!
