Rebekah Herzberg is a strong female force in the independent horror industry who tirelessly ignites the chaotic border of her creativity whether it’s her written word, filmmaking, true crime expertise, or stage presence. During Women in Horror Month we love to check out the work of talented women in the industry, and Rebekah is involved with many branches of indie horror.
Previously, Rebekah has been a writer, researcher, and TV personality for TV’s critically acclaimed Snapped, Deadly Women, Cold Justice, and Swamp Murders. When she’s not flirting with disaster, she’s a speaker for the feminine side of horror at a variety of Texas Universities, and The MENSA International. In the past, she has hosted Texas Frightmare Weekend and Women in Horror festivals that support her charitable organizations. You can find Rebekah at horror conventions and film festivals all around the United States.
Her ingenuity stretches further as an award winning bartender and night club manager. Horror themed cocktails may be a fun Halloween challenge for some but it’s something she considers deeply personal all year round. Her latest cocktail creations can be found on Instagram, and feature names like ‘The Green Inferno’ and ‘Scream Queen’. This year, her Women in Horror Cocktail list can be found in Diabolique Magazine. On top of crafty cocktail inventing, Rebekah dabbles in the arts that she grew up around; Ballet, acrobatics, silk dancing, modeling, and theater.
Currently, you can stay up to date with her VHS column for Geek Juice titled “250 Lines of Resolution” and a slew of articles for various publications where she attempts to bring back the lost art of VHS.
As a horror short lover, you can catch her at several film festival races and she’s currently working on her own horror film, Hanukkillah, with her brother. The two have been working on perfecting this script for years to show their love for their heritage and 80’s horror films. Rebekah also manages a Tumblr blog focusing on 80s movies and pop cultures.
We’re really excited to see more from Rebekah Herzberg – she’s definitely a name to look out for in the next few years!
