The weekend is upon us which means you can finally head to your local movie theater to see Jordan Peele’s first venture into the horror genre, with Get Out, which appears to be a success. Currently holding a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Get Out stars Daniel Kaluuya (Black Mirror, Sicario), Allison Williams (Girls), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich, The 40 Year Old Virgin), and Bradley Whitford (The West Wing, Cabin in the Woods). If you still aren’t convinced that you should go see this highly anticipated film, maybe watching the trailer again will convince you?

I inherited my love of halloween and horror movies from my mom. My favorite horror movie is Scream, which is highly ironic considering I was deathly afraid of Ghostface, who I had very vivid nightmares about that I still remember perfectly, as a child. Some of my other favorites are Hereditary, A Nightmare On Elm Street, Beetlejuice, The Shining, The Conjuring, and much more!
Even though I’ve pretty much been a life long fan of horror I still have a lot of catching up to do when it comes to the classics, ergo my Millennial Morgan Plays Catch Up reviews, which I plan to bring back soon.
My passion project for the site is our digital zine, called Fright Like A Girl that's all about women in horror, made by women who love horror!
In my free time, besides writing for the site, and working on my dream of becoming an actress and film maker, I enjoy making youtube videos (MJ Sawan on youtube), playing video games, going to conventions like Texas Frightmare, and Horror Hound, and cosplaying! I've cosplayed as Nancy Thompson from A Nightmare On Elm Street, Ripley from Aliens, and more.
