She does have quite a piercing scream queen scream.
Lark Slaughters Spooksmodel Competition
*Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors 2008*
As twilight slowly withered away the light of a Los Angeles Sunday, life still whispered within the body of the 2008 Fangoria Weekend of Horrors. Fans daydreaming eager visions of macabre beauty, harvested into the main ballroom of the Los Angeles Convention Center to witness the first ever Fangoria Spooksmodel contest.
Upon the stage, beauty embodied within an octonary of female flesh to stand before judge and jury. Each of the eight contestants endeavored to prove worthiness of wearing the crown of Fangoria Spooksmodel. One by one each answered questions, modeled a pose or two, and performed a one minute routine before a jury consisting of Ken Foree, John Gulagar, and Tony Timpone. Lest we forget an eager audience of horror fanatics surrounded by female flesh on its best, and sometimes erotic, behavior!
The eight contestants performed to the best of their abilities, demonstrating that each were well deserved to grace the Fangoria stage. Yet with all challenges, only one may walk away victorious. That one winner, clothed in scarlet dress and wielding a chainsaw, was Shannon Lark.
Shannon Lark of course is more than a blood splattered scream queen swinging power tools. She is a multidimensional creature. Shannon Lark is the cyber boss brains behind the horror website The Chainsaw Mafia, a place catering to information and networking for fledgling creative artists. Shannon also is a writer and director in the genre, spearheading the all female oriented Viscera Film Festival. One cannot chronicle Shannon Lark without summoning from the grave her involvement with the Living Dead Girlz, a female zombie dance troupe. Beneath all of the chainsaws, blood, zombies, and gore, she is perhaps one of the genres first horror activists. Shannon is on the front lines of the battle to advance the role of women in horror, something that is obviously being well embraced by fans and the genre in general.
As winner of the 2008 Fangoria Spooksmodel competition, Shannon will appear within all of the 2008-2009 Fangoria Weekend of Horror conventions, grace the pages of Fangoria magazine, and perform a Coffin Case photo shoot. It is quite a sweet prize. This success in reality is not just for Shannon Lark., it is a victory for all women hoping to bleed their name within the genre of horror.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0drPmBiIHdkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFdbUZskjQ0www.thechainsawmafia.com
