L.A. Scream Queens Unite for #WiHM8 Blood Drive PSA

In February is the 8th Annual Women In Horror Month, and as part of the celebration Michelle Romano’s Roman Media Inc. has joined forces with award-winning director Patricia Chica in the production of a segment for the Annual Massive Blood Drive PSA, curated by the Soska Sisters (American Mary, See No Evil 2, Hellevator).

Every year internationally renowned identical twin filmmakers, the Jen and Sylvia Soska Sisters invite you to bleed for an incredibly good cause: Women in Horror’s PSA for a Massive Blood Drive. Donating blood is something that many people find off-putting and terrifying. By using humor, innovation, and provocative imagery, this PSA will encourage viewers to face their fears and help out those in need of blood. The PSA premiered on February 1, 2017 on YouTube in honor of Women in Horror Recognition Month (#WiHM8).

For the fourth year in a row, the Soska Sisters have invited award-winning Canadian filmmaker Patricia Chica to present her vampire driven segment Las Cholas to be included in this year’s music video. The final edit includes different parts directed by various innovative, unique, and irreverent horror directors across the globe.

The musical track entitled “Blood” was created by Kevvy (Kevin James Maher) of Fake Shark. The collective is edited again by the talented Paolo Kalalo.

The concept of Las Cholas is to showcase Los Angeles’ most unique scream queens: Tiffany Shepis (Tales of Halloween, Night of the Demons), Tonya Kay, Devanny Pinn, and veteran actress Eileen Dietz (The Exorcist). Philip Friedman (Insidious), Michelle Romano (producer), Ivan Sharudo (actor), and Patricia Chica (director) also have a cameo in the short.

The full-length version of the story will be released later this year.

Synopsis: A group of Cholas deliver a very special substance to a thirsty vegan vampire couple, in the depths of Los Angeles’ underground scene.
