From the festival director, Jay K:

                   “Patricia Chica’s work goes beyond the boundaries of filmmaking. Patricia has a way of humanizing topics, figures and horror that connects on so many levels with myself, The Ghost and fans of film. Her style is lush and fearless! Patricia forms a connection to her work as each project is crafted and contains beauty similar to a deep love you feel for family. We selected “Serpent’s Lullaby” to go along with the short and features films because horror takes many shapes, actions, forms and feelings… “Serpent’s Lullaby” embodies all of that not to mention the eye from an experienced woman filmmaker like Patricia. This short was one of the first selections to the Horror Happens Film Showcase Celebrating Women in Horror and we consider it a foundation to what makes this movement and event great.”

Horror Happens Productions as a Brand, encompasses many aspects of horror culture, media and conversation not found anywhere else. When you have a powerful and evolving movement like Women in Horror, you see that impact it makes and the empowerment it releases to the many out there no matter the fan you are. This parallels to the Horror Happens Radio Show and Film Showcase as it aims to educate, unleash and evolve within horror finding that extraordinary and unique road to travel down. The untapped talent and eclectic visions of these women in every aspect of horror offers the chance to showcase their work on the movie screen for those to experience this journey. That love and art is found not only during Women in Horror Month but all year long whether the live conversations on Horror Happens Radio, the film showcase or Horror Happens Productions found at

About Serpent’s Lullaby:

Few people know the name of the eccentric woman living in the centuries-old mansion just outside of town. Even fewer have seen her face. But everyone has heard the stories. Rumors of a secret garden in her backyard where her children are buried. Some think she is simply a grieving widowed mother seeking solitude. Others believe she’s a cold-blooded monster. When the empty baby’s crib in her home and her lost love become too much for her to bear she makes a decision that will change the course of her story.
