The Homicidal Homemaker® - "Where Home Economics Meets Horror!"
Many, many, many years ago, I had the idea of launching a website to showcase the hybrid of two things I love – horror movies, and food. I sat on the idea for many years, and finally, in February of 2012, in celebration of Women in Horror Month, I finally got off of my butt and made the site live. I wasn't sure if anyone would have any interest in my tutorials or not, but I decided to give it a go. Immediately, people showed interest and started actually making the recipes. I even began teaching my horror cooking classes at various conventions.
Fast-forward to 2015: Neptune Cinema expressed interest in producing the cooking show I had been writing.
In February of 2016, again, in celebration of Women in Horror Month, I published the first episode of The Homicidal Homemaker® horror-themed cooking show. It's been an absolute blast, and we have so many awesome things planned for 2017.
All recipes on my website and my show are 100% original creations that I develop myself. Each episodes includes cinematic vignettes before and after the cooking segment, aside from our #QuickTipsFromTheCrypt episodes which are mini-episodes. Everything you see and hear on the show are original creations as well. Ian (of Neptune Cinema) not only films and edits the episodes, but he also creates the miniature models that you see in the episodes. All are made by hand. Ian and I both create a lot of the props. My sweetheart Salvador assists me with writing the episodes, and is the composer for the show. We all wear many hats to make the show possible. I step in with makeup and special FX, but we also utilize local artists, too. Some of the many tasks that I fulfill are developing the recipes, writing the episodes, designing and maintaining the website, photography of the recipes, all of the graphic design/branding, co-directing episodes, and co-producing the show. I think it's pretty awesome that such a small team makes this possible, and I am forever grateful to my crew – I couldn't have hoped or asked for a better team.
The show is truly one-of-a-kind, and so much energy, time, commitment, and our heart goes into every episode. We do not make any money off of the show, so it's more important than ever that as many people see the episodes as possible. A simple like, comment, or share really makes our day! I, along with the crew, would love the opportunity to talk more about what we do!
