About Christianne Benedict

Who I Am and What I Do

My name is Christianne Benedict and I write about movies. My movie blog, Krell Laboratories, has been on the net since 2005. I've also written for Indiewire and the books, Horror 101 and Hidden Horror. I write about all kinds of movies, not just horror movies. I'm also a working artist. I've contributed illustrations to several roleplaying games and I've contributed comics to a couple of comics anthologies (most notably, Womanthology and Womanthology: Space, and The Alphabet Anthology supporting the Prism Comics Queer Press Grant, and the forthcoming We're Still Here anthology from Stacked Deck). My comics and other art can be seen on my art blog, Christianne's Art and Comics (I really need to think of a better name) and at my comics tumblr.

Unfortunately, writing about movies and drawing comics are not lucrative and they are both time consuming. So, I'm looking for patron. I need patrons who will support three items: blog posts at Krell Laboratories, blog posts at Christianne's Art and Comics, and stand-alone comics to be published either on my Tumblr page or as downloadable ebooks from Gumroad, Smashwords, or other online sources. I'm planning to make physical copies of my comics available down the road, as well as a "Best of Krell Laboratories" book , but that's putting the cart before the horse for now.

The money I make from my Patreon campaign will fund things like film festival reporting, art supplies, convention appearances, and general overhead. Plus, it will provide me with the incentive to keep blogging and to keep drawing. As Samuel Johnson once said, "No man but a blockhead ever wrote, except for money," a quote that is dear to my heart.


I post a lot of stuff. I've got this set up to bill for every post, but if you want to pledge on a monthly basis rather than on a per-post basis, please cap your pledge at whatever is comfortable for you. This way, I can benefit from both per-post and per-month patrons.

If you'd like to support me, but aren't comfortable with the Patreon system, you can also buy my stuff individually at either my Etsy store or at my Society 6 print shop.

As a couple of wise men once said, thank you for your support.

Once I hit this level of patronage, I'll make the first volume of The Best of Krell Laboratories available to all of my patrons as a thank you.
