About Aurora Gorealis

When Baltimore-based horror host Aurora Gorealis was a baby ghoul, she’d stay up until the wee hours devouring all the horror and sci-fi that late-night television had to offer. There were monsters in every shadow on the trip up the dark stairs to her bedroom—she barely made it back alive! She’s found the best therapy for those freaky formative experiences to be sharing the terror … er, the love, which she does via Shocktail Hour, a film series that invites a gang of creeps to an oasis of weirdo horror. They sip on custom cocktails; sketch spooky entries for the drawing contest; and enjoy the shared experience of watching a campy, schlocky, or over-the-top gory movie hand-picked by the undead dame herself.
Shocktail Hour had its dreadful debut on June 13, 2017 with the absolutely bonkers and delightful flick Don’t Look in the Basement. The show nearly had it’s premiere and cancellation on the very same night, as Aurora was attacked by a madman in a straitjacket who almost took down the whole set. Those sadists in the audience ate it up, and Aurora knew she had to continue giving the people what they wanted—a swinging scream of a party in which anything can happen. Nothing warms Aurora’s undead heart quite like treating her audience to an escape from the mundane, and she hopes to do it for thousands of years to come.
