Quote of the Day

"Looking back, my most serious projects were all horror/suspense films. It's just the genre I always felt I belonged to. Being a black filmmaker, you get a lot of pressure to make "poignant" films. But that's never been my passion. [Horror] is not an easy genre to belong to. But if I'm weird, I'll be [weird and] proud."

-Filmmaker Tiffany D. Jackson on  the difficult task of receiving recognition as a female horror filmmaker, and as an African American female horror filmmaker, the obstacles are multi-layered.
