Celebrate women directors’ contributions to horror with a screening of the nearly-lost-to-time film Hollywood 90028. Christina Hornisher’s sole feature film was given new life with a 4K restoration by Grindhouse Releasing in 2023. Local character makeup artist Christina Kortum will give a crash course in horror makeup before the film.

ON SCREEN: Hollywood 90028

1973. Directed by Christina Hornisher. Runtime: 88 minutes. Rated R.

Hollywood 90028 features Mark, a young photographer, who travels to Hollywood hoping to make it as a cameraman in the movie business. Unfortunately, the only jobs he can find are shooting porn “loops” for a sleazy producer. Depressed and increasingly delusional, he begins to take out his frustrations on pretty young women he meets—by strangling them.

ON STAGE: Christina Kortum of Ravenous Studios

Christina has been working in the film and entertainment industry since 2006, on projects located around the world. You have seen her work on such shows as NBC’s Grimm, Portlandia, Leverage, The Librarians, as well as numerous independent feature films. With her prior background in manufacturing production planning, she also has years of experience with supervising teams, organizing projects, managing budgets, and meeting deadlines.

The road leading Christina becoming an effects artist was not the typical one. After receiving a degree in Creative Arts from San Jose State, she found herself going into information technology instead of the art career she had planned. Years of working in the chemical manufacturing industry led to a mixed skill-set of network engineering, database design, production planning, and management . She moved to Portland and started dabbling in independent film nights and weekends.

This eventually rolled into the creative career in the arts she had always dreamed of when she got the opportunity to join the special effects makeup team on NBC’s Grimm. For the next six years she enjoyed doing special effects makeup application and prop creation for the show under department head Barney Burman. Post Grimm she expanded Ravenous Studios and started department heading such shows as Netflix’s Everything Sucks and supervising special makeup effects on Girl In The Woods on Peacock.

Recently she was a recipient of a Makeup Artist Guild Awards for her contribution to Kerry Herta’s team creating the 2022 American Horror Story Double Feature promo and 2023 American Horror Stories Dollhouse promos for FX.

This screening is sponsored by Woodlark Hotel Portland.
