NAME: Emily Intravia
BLOG: The Deadly Doll's House of Horror Nonsense
AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Anything from the 1970s to the present, with a heavy emphasis in the pretty darn awful (but not necessarily exploitation) and pretty much anything involving villainous creatures under 5 foot tall (leprechauns, toys, kids, etc.)

The Deadly Doll's House is quiet and colorful little nook of cyberspace where films ranging from Deadtime Stories to Deadgirl get their chance to be reviewed and recommended for a rental, purchase, or burial in consecrated ground diligently guarded by Halloween III style security ‘bots sworn to protect innocent Netflix subscribers from experiencing the terror and suicidal inducing tremors I felt watching the It’s Alive remake. Lessons are learned (did you know Caucasian clowns are not classified as white? Thanks Fear of Clowns!) highs and lows measured, and a quick, usually spoiler-free (unless warned otherwise) plot is synopsized. Every Friday, she takes a quick field trip over to to contribute a miscellaneous column on anything from real estate advice in the horror universe to how the PG13 rating has affected the genre. All this endless rambling is the result of 27 years and counting spent with zombies, demons, toxic waste infused arachnids, evil but angelic looking children, and of course, a diverse assortment of tiny knife-wielding homicidal dolls.

BLOG: Zombies are Magic
Zombies, which really scare the crap out of her

"Zombies are Magic" is a blog that is now 2 years old (but in all honesty, it has only been a pure Horror blog for about a year. Before that there were a lot of pictures of my cat.) I am a 35 year old horror fanatic! I have loved to be scared since I was a little girl, but it is only as an adult that I have let my horror freak flag fly. My fascination started with the slasher films I saw in my youth such as Friday the 13th, Halloween, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. In my early twenties I re-discovered the classic Universal Horror films and that sent my on the journey I am on today. I love all aspects of horror culture, including film, television, literature, and music. My horror heroes are HP Lovecraft, Richard Matheson, George A. Romero, Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, Mary Shelley, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Shirley Jackson, Sam Raimi, Neil Gaiman, and Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. My Blog, however, is really about my journey to educate myself about all aspects of horror. So it is mostly thoughts and reviews about the good, bad, and the ugly of horror that is new to me. With an occasional cat picture.
