Indie goddesses Jen and Sylvia Soska do more than just make great horror flicks; the “Twisted Twins” are 21st Century body-horror pioneers with hearts of gold. Every year in February to coincide with Women in Horror Month, they spearhead an annual blood drive, accompanied by a series of graphic PSA’s that genre fans will love! Here’s a letter they released to announce this year’s project:
“It’s that magical time of year again where we Sisters Soska don’t just want to spill blood on the screen, but want YOU to bleed for us. Don’t worry, it’s for an incredibly good cause…
Previous PSA: Bitch
As part of WiHM, each year we search out filmmakers from across the globe to make their own Public Service Announcements for Blood Services and Red Cross. The only requirements are that you have to be passionate about the cause and you must be a feminist. I’m proud to say that this year we have a record-setting 30 TEAMS that have participated. Magnificently each PSA was made with the filmmakers using their own money and resources along with generous donations and numerous volunteers.
We have a different theme each year and this year is BE A HERO.
In previous years, we’ve combined them all into one mega-anthology, but this year we’re making it our BIGGEST year yet. EVERY day in February (starting January 31st and ending March 1st) we will be releasing a NEW PSA via our Twisted Twins’ YouTube Channel. Please subscribe.
We are very proud to announce our outstanding list of contributors for our 2018 WiHM Massive Blood Drive:
Hannah Neurotica (WiHM Founder), Lex Lybrand, Paddy Murphy, Tonja Atmoic & Mi Chelle Nessk, Mary Rangel, Atropa Films, Maude Michaud, Tommy Pistol, Ama Lea, Damon Rickard, Adam Marcus, Stitch Mays, Marilyn Thomas, Joe Magna, Jamie DeWolf, Vanessa Wright, Nicholas Burman-Vince, Christian Francis & Mark Miller, Izzy Lee, Aleah Anseth, Sam Hawkins & Kim Pipkin, Andrew Hass, Dayna Noffke, Vicky Tori Ella, Aishlinn Clarke, Stephanie Michelle, Brandon Slagle, Michelle Romano, Angela Nolan, and us, the Soska Sisters.
Each day we’ll release profiles on the filmmakers along with their shorts and sometimes even poster art and BTS stills. As a special added surprise, you won’t know which one is being released when, so keep your eyes on the prize!
Thank you so much for watching, but PLEASE be sure to make an appointment to donate. We need you. After all, it’s in you to give.
Jen and Sylv”

Today’s PSA is Haemo Eradication Services by Angela Nolan & Martyn Fleetwood.
Official Synopsis: HOWACEY Productions was created by Martyn Fleetwood and Angela Nolan in England in 2017. To date they’ve made a horror-themed quiz show, an American Mary swede & an entry for the 2018
Massive Blood Drive PSA. There are other shorts in the planning stages, all in the horror genre, and plans to release table-top game play videos so they can use their YouTube channel to combine their passions for both horror films and board games.
Martyn is an IT nerd and Angela is an English nut who lives to correct Martyn’s typos. They both enjoy cosplay at Comic-Con and film festivals although it’s still undecided who pulled off Harley Quinn the best.
The Blood Drive PSA is particularly important to Angela as she can no longer donate blood for medical reasons so she was happy to have the opportunity to encourage others to donate.
