Massive Blood Drive PSA (Day 6): “Red Light” by Lex Lybrand

Artist Statement

I was drawn to the WiHM blood drive for a variety of reasons. First on the list is that I'm a big fan of women subverting expectations in the horror genre, both behind and in front of the camera, so thanks to everyone's favorite Twisted Twins, I've been aware of the blood drive / PSA anthology for years. Secondly, as a survivor of multiple broken bones / surgeries / hospital stays in the past, the blood drive holds a very special place in my heart. I've been reliant on the kindness of others in the past, so convincing me to return the favor isn't hard to do!

Make An Appointment to Donate Blood Today!

You can’t think horror without thinking blood! Every February, Women in Horror Month (WiHM) collaborates with Twisted Twins Productions, encouraging our supporters to donate blood.*

This annual call-to-action is a reminder that blood donation is a life-saving act in which you can claim hero status without taking out a horde of rotting zombies or blowing up the mothership. In fact, all it really requires to potentially save someone's life is making an appointment with the American Red CrossCanadian Blood Services, or at your local hospital.
