Horror-movie hostess Jill Sixx (real name: Jill Gevargizian) believes that most modern films in the genre are wastes of time. "There's no faith in an original idea anymore," she tells us. As a youngster, Sixx started remaking slasher films with her dad's VHS camera. Then after the release of Scream in 1996, she decided that blood, guts and decisively more stylish horror flicks would definitely be in her future. Today, the 29-year-old hairstylist (we all need day jobs, people) sets up shop on the first Monday of the month at Czar for Slaughter Movie House, an 18-and-older free-movie night that screens classics, new shorts and experimental pieces from all over the world. And when Sixx isn't making special appearances at Screenland Armour or at local events like Horror on the Boulevard and Crypticon Kansas City, she's working on her first cinematic feature, Call Girl, due out in February 2014.
