Greetings all, I’m Shannon Hood, and I will be joining the writing team here at Film Junk. I’m a gal, so I guess that will make me the resident Junkette. I’ve been writing film reviews for over two years, and I run a pop culture website called Frothygirlz. I’m a whore for horror films, a rabid film enthusiast, and occasional radio show and podcast co-host. I’ve covered multiple film festivals and interviews, and I freelance for several print and online outlets.
After admiring the guys here at Film Junk from afar for some time now, I am thrilled to finally work with them. My film tastes run from conventional to eclectic, but I am partial to indie film, South Korean cinema (I Saw the Devil was one of my favorite films last year), and grisly fare. Greg and I have discovered that we have alarmingly close taste in films, barring horror. My top five films of 2010 were Black Swan, True Grit, The Social Network, 127 Hours, and The Kids Are All Right.
I’ll be contributing film reviews, occasional interviews, and whatever else might pop up. For the curious, skeptical, or already annoyed, you can access a full archive of my film reviews here.
