About Haleigh Williams

Haleigh Williams profile photo
1995: Slumber Party Birthday celebration is where we lay our scene. What started as an average night became the start of a love so great, it would forever change the course of one girls life forever. That girl, was Haleigh Williams. One would think that showing a horror film at a child’s birthday party would be a bad idea, but that 11 year old girl was adamant about watching one on her special night. The film was Poltergeist, and even though it was the scariest thing she had ever seen and almost peed her pants, she knew that this was the start of a beautiful friendship. That love grew and continues to this day, as she watches, reads and geeks-out over all things sci-fi and horror. She has extensive escape plans if the zombie apocalypse should ever hit and always checks behind the shower curtain for serial killers.
