As well as a prop maker who has worked for multiple prop shops such as Dapper Cadaver.

 

I had a few questions for Teri on her work, inspirations, and current/upcoming projects!

 

When did you know you had a passion for Horror?

“I knew since I was young and watching sci-if films with my father I had a passion for horror. Horror, Halloween, anything spooky always gave me an excitement that no other thing could. I was so intrigued by monsters and characters like Elvira and TV shows like The Munsters. I did all my school career projects on Hollywood & Horror when I could. I even remember a final where I included a scene from ‘Beetlejuice’ in my presentation. So, it has always been there.”

 

What inspired you to start doing Horror Make-up?

“Since elementary school I talked about moving to Hollywood and working in film and horror. I threw a huge Halloween party at my parents house in 2003 and I said to myself ‘I want this every day’, I wanted the things that are celebrated in October to be celebrated in my life 365 and I knew if I got into Horror Make-up and film and monsters, I could make that a reality. I wanted to mix my two favorite things, Horror/Halloween & Film-Horror. Make-up seemed like the perfect solution.”

 

Tell us about “Sea Griffin Creations & Productions”!

“In 2010 I met Carson Griffin, and we both shared a huge passion for film and horror. Late 2010 we began writing our first film “Zombeef.” After that we began working together doing everything from FX, blood, filming, art, editing, writing, and even stop motion.

We decided to create “Sea Griffin Creations and Productions” to showcase all of our projects. We have been working together now for 7 years and we are very proud of what we have accomplished and only plan to keep going and taking things further!”

 

What are your most recent projects?

“Right now we’re working on a few new short films that we’re writing and directing. We’re still working on the development of “The Real Ghoulwives of Los Angeles”

Alien: Covenant 

Posted in aliens, Art, Halloween, Monsters, news, sci-fi with tags , , on October 31, 2016 by chrisdsav

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE.

What better way to kick off the holiday today than looking at some pictures from the new Alien movie coming next year. It will have been five years since Prometheus was in theaters let’s see if the follow up will hold up. Thanks to So is it any good .com for the pictures.

well apparently fox brought a cease and desist notice against the site for the pictures posted. Don’t they want to help spread the good word of their movie rather than continue to tarnish their shitt reputation more and more. Guess not. Prometheus was a failure and they know it, they put Alien 2.5 on hold for no good reason.

I Am So Excited For Halloween!!

Halloween is such a magical holiday. You can dress up as anything you want. It gives you an excuse to binge watch your favourite horror movies. It’s the one night a year where you can quite literally take candy from strangers. It’s great.

All that being said, I think my absolute favourite thing about Halloween is the fact that even if someone isn’t a hardcore horror fan, they can still get into the spirit. They’ll still dress up, deck out their house, and hand out candy. It’s such a fun holiday that literally anybody can get into it regardless of their interests the other 364 days of the year.

Plus it’s always adorable to see the kids come up to your door! I can’t wait for that!

This Halloween I have some pretty fun plans! Saturday I’m going to a pals Halloween party, Sunday I’m gonna binge watch some horror movies then do Radio of Horror, and then on Halloween I’m staying home to hand out candy to kids! I’m so stoked.

What are your Halloween plans?? Are you taking your kids out? Going to a party? Rewatching American Horror Story? Be sure to let me know in the comments!

The Fort Garry Hotel

Posted in ghosts, Halloween, History, horror, Places with tags , on October 3, 2016 by chrisdsav

hotel_fort_garry_lge.jpg

The Fort Garry Hotel is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and was built in 1913. It was originally supposed to be called The Selkirk, however it was decided that it should be named after Upper Fort Garry, which once stood at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers.

Fort Garry was popular from the start, hosting many famous guests including Queen Elizabeth, King George VI, Laurence Oliver, Louis Armstrong, and Liberaci. What makes the hotel so popular today is all the reports of strange activity, especially in room 202, from guests and staff alike. The claims range from staff seeing blood dripping down the walls of room 202 to guests waking up in the middle of the night to the apparition of a woman in a cloak hovering at the foot of their bed! Other reports include housekeepers being locked in room 202 and windows in the room apparently shattering out of nowhere! Even former Ontario Liberal MP Brenda Chamerlain noticed something strange going on in room 202! During her stay in the room back in 2004 she claimed she was awoken by the sensation of somebody getting into bed with her… twice!

So you’re probably wondering what the deal with room 202 is, right? Well apparently many years ago there was a young woman was staying in the room. During her stay she found out that her husband had died in a car crash. She was so heartbroken she hung herself in the closest of room 202.

Another story from room 202 is about a young boy who was on a trip with his family organized by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He had apparently requested to stay in room 202 after hearing all the stories about the room. During his stay he decided to take some pictures with his film camera. A few months later when he got the photos back, all the pictures had turned out… except for the ones in and around room 202. The little boy was apparently pretty stoked, saying that the ghosts were “camera shy”.

The woman from room 202 reportedly haunts the hotel lounge as well. She has been witness by guests and staff, usually crying in the corner.

Staff have also reported seeing the ghost of a young woman wearing a robe walking down the hallway. Others have reported seeing a woman in a ball gown. Sometimes ghosts are even witnessed in rooms other than room 202, usually at the foot of the bed.

Now, this last story about the hotel takes place in 1989. An employee was in the kitchen tidying up late at night. He was on his way up the stairs at around 4am when he started hearing strange noises coming from the locked dining room. He immediately rushed to get the key. Upon opening the door he noticed the figure of a man sitting at a table. He ran on to get another staff member to show them what he had witnessed, but by the time he got back, the mysterious man was gone.

So what do you think? Haunted hotel or a clever hoax to attract guests? The Fort Garry Hotel is now a National Historic Landmark, however it is still open to this day. If you’re brave enough to check it out for yourself, you can go to this link to book a room:
