To Spite One’s Face

To Spite One’s Face

Zoë Peterson

Cincinnati, OH

The VHS from The Ring meets the women of G.L.O.W.

In their recently deceased mother’s attic, sisters Dani and April discover a box of 1980’s workout tapes. When Dani plays one, she learns that her mother made a deal, and now it’s her job to finish it. A show about sisterhood, poltergeists, and grief- it’s campy horror…with a bleeding heart.
