In the world of content creation and streaming, it can be hard to find unique content that delivers the genre-specific vibes that you truly connect with. But, if you love horror and gaming, then Twitch streamer ReAnimateHer could be right up your alley.
“The podcast at first was just a Vodcast or Webshow where I spoke about Horror movies & TV shows. We call them autopsies it is where I research in depth behind the scenes and how the movie started. Which then involved into Interview with people who work within the Horror industry from Directors to Artists and everything in between. People enjoyed the webshow so much they asked me to turn it into audio for podcasts so that is how the podcast was created. Some of the amazing guests I had on the show was B. Harrison Smith director of Death Camp, Vincente DiSanti director/producer of Never Hike in the Snow, James Sweet director of Jason Rising, Todd Farmer writer/actor of Jason X. I have had some many fun interviews on CCoH you are able to catch the video episodes over on my YouTube then the audio over on my Website”
