“I’m not going to kill your kids at night…”
Valentina Egoavil Medina is the editor and creative director of Suspira, the magazine that views horror through a female lens. The first issue focused on monsters, seeking to understand what makes something monstrous; while the second issue was devoted to fetishism, exploring female sexual power in horror and beyond. In this conversation she speaks about the ideas behind the magazine, the twin frustrations that led her to making a magazine about horror, and the stuff that really scares her.
The conversation was recorded in Munich at the EDCH editorial conference, and we’ll feature more of the speakers over the coming weeks.
