Forbidden Panel

Convention season is in full swing and Forbidden Panel is right where we want to be: right in the middle of it! We received a wonderful response from old and new fans welcoming us back to Wonder Con in Anaheim this year. AJ Herrera and crew introduced several new books, as well as creating a new fan base for our existing titles.

On Friday night after a full first day at the convention, we had our annual Wonder Con company dinner.  The food was terrific and the company was even better. Our friends and family showed up to hang out, talk about the day, and make plans for the rest of the weekend.

There were many highlights to the first convention of the season that included Forbidden Panel. These included admiring the many, amazing cosplayers wandering around the convention center, meeting and sharing our books with popular celebrities, and for me (Andrea), it was attending the Lucifer Panel on Sunday.

April was a busy month for us that also included our 24-hour Create Something Day. “Create Something Day” has become a way for members of Forbidden Panel, as well as other artists and creators, to come together and work on their projects over a 24-hour period. It’s a fun a way to finish projects, visit with like minded individuals and at times catch up on your favorite movies. Check our Facebook page for the next one!

Stay tuned for our coming events, as May is going to be another exciting month for us. We can’t wait to share it with all of you!

Welcome to our countdown to the most anxiety-inducing horror films for parents!  Today is day twenty three!

Each day, we are covering the films I both love and hate because they’re awesome and they give me panic attacks now that I’m a mom.

Film #9 considers the question; What if your own child turned against you no matter how much you loved them, how much compassion you showed to them, no matter how much empathy you tried to teach?  What if your baby really isn’t your baby, possibly not even human?  

Disclaimer: Trigger warnings are a given when you talk about horror, but I’m going to say it anyway.  Many subjects covered by horror films are disturbing to parents in ways we can’t possibly understand and each is unique to the parent and his/her experiences.

So, today I thought we would take a drive through another, similar story to yesterday’s escape from Silent Hill.  Another dynamic horror duo came along, long before Alyssa and Sharon with a story that preys upon our anxiety when it comes to children, manipulation, religious insanity and death.  Your death, not theirs… sorry for any confusion, there.

Carrying on the same vein as our film from yesterday, it seems like a good day to dive into a title that crosses the barriers between dimensions.  It shows us a world between worlds and walks the bridge that binds film and gaming. Today we take a drive into my favorite of all haunted towns…

Today is the 15th and we are half way through our month-long horror countdown!  Today we are talking about another film based on the work of parapsychologists/demonologists; Ed and Lorraine Warren.  This one just happens to touch upon a prevalent subject in horror that tends to weaken the knees of even the bravest of horror connoisseurs.
