When From Midnight With Love's The Mike challenged his Midnight Warriors to pay tribute to the mums of horror I was totally down with that plan. Hell yeah, mums! Mums rock! Mums in horror do generally get a bad press; it kind of sucks to be a horror mum because basically everything is your fault, you’re either absent, psychotic/evil, abusive, neglectful or uninvolved to the point of blindness. Now while I could drone on in a pseudo intellectual manner about the implications of this for a very long time (oh, I really could), I’m instead going to restrain myself and let the mums speak for themselves. A while ago I did a picture meme in which I chose to celebrate the daddies of horror so for the sake symmetry (and the blessed relief of less talking on my part) I’m going to present the mummies of horror in the same format. So here they are in all their glory; the beautiful, crazy, awesome, killer mums of horror.
Only kidding, the last one's MY mum! Lily: rock chick, seer, dancer, Dachshund wrangler, counsellor, rebel, warrior, goddess and best damn mum ever. I love you, mummy!
So there were the horror mums, weren’t they great?Thanks to The Mike for coming up with this excellent idea. And Thanks to The Mike’s mum The Masha from coming up with the idea of The Mike. And to all the mums out there, thanks for being awesome.
