FRIGHT GIRL OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2008 - ELISSA DOWLING!
13 FRIGHT INSIGHTS FROM FRIGHT GIRL OF THE MONTH ELLISA DOWLING!
Earliest Horror Memory?
The image of Bela Lugosi becoming a bat and flying out the window.
Scariest Movie You’ve Ever Seen?
Sadly, horror movies don’t really scare me, at least not anymore. I think I’m immune from over-exposure.
Jay’s Journal because it’s non-fiction and creepy as hell.
Which Fright Fiend Can Take You Out To Dinner?
I’d love to have dinner with Mr. Krueger because he could easily cut my steak for me. Just kidding I don’t eat meat but I do love a man in stripes.
What Rad 80’s Horror Chick Would You Like Totally For Sure Be?
Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Favorite Vampire/Vampire Movie?
Bela Lugosi’s Dracula by far.
Favorite Ghost/Haunting Movie?
Favorite Horror Director/Filmmaker?
Favorite Horror Icon Living Or Dead You’d Like To Interview?
Bela Lugosi, um so did I mention I’m a Lugosi fan?
Top 5 Movies For A Slumber Party (Massacre)?
Hard Candy and Firestarter.
Pretty much anything that includes a bunch of demented chicks.
Monster You’d Most Like To Be?
I already am a zombie most days at least before I’ve had my coffee. But I also stay up late, like to bite and I avoid the sun so I guess more of a vampire minus the whole blood thing.
Fake boobs, I’m afraid they’ll pop like birthday balloons.
Why Do You Love Horror Movies?
I love horror flicks because I’m extremely masochistic and it’s an excuse to play with knives.

How Can YOU Be A FRIGHT GIRL OF THE MONTH?
The rules are simple.
You must be at least 18 years of age.
All you have to do is submit a couple of high resolution images of yourself and fill out the 13 Fright Insights survey.
Feel free to be naughty and gory, but keep it PG-13 (no nudity). We encourage you to be creative, provocative and make it somewhat horror related. Meaning, you can have fun with it by re-creating something from one of your favorite horror movies. OR take some pictures with horror items from your personal collection. OR do something sexy involving special FX make-up. It’s all up to you!
ALSO important - You must download the following two word documents and return them both to us with your submissions.
The first is a questionnaire in which you’ll be asked to answer 13 questions about why you love the horror genre so much. Feel free to elaborate! Your responses will run with the pictures as your horror “stats”.
Word Document 1: fright_girl_questions
The second word document is a release form, granting us permission to post your pictures on our site should you be selected as our FRIGHT GIRL OF THE MONTH. You must sign the release form, scan it and email it back along with the rest of your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Word Document 2: fright_girl_release
We will inform you if you’ve been picked as our FRIGHT GIRL OF THE MONTH, at which time we would also ask for proof of age through a scan of your state-issued ID.
Go crazy and have fun with it!
Q: Will I be paid for this?
A: No. But the glory and honor is yours almighty Fright Girl forever and ever.
Q: What's in the 13 Questions?
A: Stuff about horror movies you like, nothing personal. And yes, you have to answer them, and we'd love you to take your time with it because your brains smell so good...so...spicy.
Q: Should I use any particular format for the pictures?
A: JPEG, GIF, and PSD are all acceptable.
Q: Any particular resolution?
A: Images being accepted should be 1200x800 with a preferred resolution of 150. The minimum resolution is 125 and the max is 250. <--Someone told us this, we have no idea what we're really talking about.
Q: So why no nudity?
A: We don't have enough lawyers to even think about including nudity on the site, and also, we think jail is a very bad place and want to stay out of there. But hey--gore? GO FOR IT!
Q: Do I REALLY have to be 18, even if I get parental permission?
A: See above regarding lawyers and jail. Also, when selected, yes, we will require a scan of your state-issued photo ID, no exceptions.
Q: How long will I be on the site?
A: If selected you will be the featured Fright Girl for a specific month. Then, your profile and picture will remain archived on the site. So pretty much you'll live forever on Icons of Fright, immortal, just like the vampires and the zombies.
