The Series: Short horror films created by women in front of and behind the camera.
The Viscera Series was created by women to facilitate the advancement of females reaching for more powerful roles within the horror genre. Now, more than ever, women are running their own horror production companies and directing, producing, writing, branching out into cinematography and even creating special FX.
The Mafia believes that the term "scream queen" is now changing into a woman who can perform both on and off camera and stage, and has no fear in taking the horror industry on with her sick and talented mind
