WHAT WE DO
Viscera specifically focuses on women gaining self confidence, knowledge, and growth through the creation of horror films.
This process is to achieve equality in the film industry, not domination.
Specializing in short horror films made by the female gender, the Viscera Film Festival hosts an annual bloody carpet event in Los Angeles for the selected Filmmakers, Special Celebrity Guests, and a live audience. Each Filmmaker receives a hand crafted Viscera Statue, along with promotional materials and the option to be distributed on the next Viscera DVD Compilation. Throughout the year, Viscera is continuously working to get the Viscera films screened and promoted all over the world.
Viscera is a non profit organization committed to expanding opportunities for contemporary female horror filmmakers and educating the public by raising awareness of the changing roles for women in the film industry.
A world wherein all individuals are equally given the opportunity to create, share, and exploit their concept of life, pain, and freedom of expression, while fully supported in their quest.
The Viscera Film Festival is simply revolutionary! Wether you already make films and want to be considered for the Fest OR you have never even picked up a camera VISCERA encourages and supports you in just doing it for the first time! Grab the camcorder like a chainsaw and spray the therapeutic bloody guts of creatively all over the place! Oh& then submit it to the Viscera Film Fest!!!

"Ax Wound is my favorite critical horror magazine. The articles are intelligent, funny, insightful, and incredibly entertaining. These girls know their gore, and they make you want to re-watch all your favorite films with a whole new perspective. I love it and highly recommend it to any horror fan."
- Eli Roth (Hostel, Cabin Fever, Inglorious Bastards)
"Hannah Neurotica is not only one of the most intelligent, entertaining, and insightful writers on the horror scene today but she is also someone I wish was around as a role model when I was young girl. From orchestrating forward-thinking, empowering events like Women In Horror Month to giving a brilliant voice to women and all horror people alike through Ax Wound Zine and Zine Radio, you can count on Hannah to give another layer of keen depth to your favorite films with her reviews and a take-no-prisons approach to gutsy events that not only celebrate but also bring together the horror community."
- Jen & Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary)
"Well, it’s about time! What a pleasure to see a genuine feminist horror zine that also is literate, informative, and –get this– cleverly written. Hannah, I’m your admirer. So put me at the top of your list of fans."
- Herschell Gordon Lewis (Godfather of Gore: Blood Feast, Gore Gore Girls, 2000 Maniacs!)
"Ax Wound is packed with more blood, sweat and tears than any mainstream horror publication on the market. It’s handmade, heartfelt and hard to put down. I’m a regular reader of its lovely hacked and slashed pages."
- Jovanka Vuckovic (Editor-in-Chief of Rue Morgue Magazine 2003-2009, The Captured Bird)
"Ax Wound is far more interesting than any mainstream horror magazine. It’s personal, it’s handmade, it’s bold. Something to aspire to in any form of artistic expression. I loves it."
- Lucky Mckee (May, The Woman)
Just when you thought girls were all powder-puff and perfume, comes Ax Wound. Smart, sassy and horrifically detailed with its articles. These chicks know their horror! I personally think the name Ax Wound is brilliant.
- Israel Luna (Ticked Off Trannies With Knives)
