WOMEN IN HORROR: A Month-Long Look into the Ladies Crafting the Worlds of Fear! Day Twenty Eight – Kaylee Williams!
1. What first drew you into the world of horror?
I’ve always been into creepy/scary stuff. I’m a huge bookworm and every Goosebumps book was a must-have when I was a kid. I loved all of R.L. Stine’s books. The Choose Your Own Adventure ones where you can create multiple stories based on which choice you picked while reading the book were fun!
2. What film/book/show was the biggest influence on you?
Film – Probably The Addams Family and The Rocky Horror Picture show. I would love to do films like those.
Books – Anything R.L. Stine as a kid, but as an adult Stephen King.
Show – Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
3. What actor/director/writer do you consider your biggest influence?
Joss Whedon. He does comedic horror extremely well and that’s my favorite genre of horror.
4. Who would you consider to be your horror twin?
I’d like to think I’m one of a kind. :-
5. What do you think you would you be doing if you weren’t involved with the horror community?
I’d be doing other genres of film. But I can’t imagine not being involved with the horror community. It’s been a big part of my life for a long time.
