Heather Drain

The first thing you should know about Heather Drain is that she loves fringe films and music. The second thing should know is that she is from the South and is absolutely infallible in her opinions. (Or not.) Heather has been obsessed with film and art in general since she was a little girl who learned to read from the assorted film books around the house. She's been a professional writer for a few years and has been featured in such publications as Video Watchdog, Cinefear, Cultcuts, Ultra Violent, Little Rock Free Press and Screem Magazine. Currently, she resides in the Dragonfly Hacienda with her brilliant husband Chuck, two pet rats and Ziggy, their rescue black cat.
