Black Women Horror Filmmakers: Sloan Turner
Sprinkles of inspiration from James Wan and Guillermo del Toro are present in SoCal native Sloan Turner's directorial debut, Consumed. About a girl encountering a supernatural presence around the time her mother arrives home from the hospital to recover from an ailment. Consumed is a very personal story that is strengthened by the girl, Sasha's (Ali Fisher) easy innocence and other-worldly intelligence. Turner was exposed to the horror films her Dad had no qualms about her watching at an early age. Dealing with her mother's multiple surgeries, she acquired a healthy attitude towards the fear of death and the darkness: by confronting it.
Sloan is a graduate of the University of Mary in North Dakota with a B.S. in Mass Communications and recently acquired a Masters in Film and Media Art from Boston's Emerson College.
