Hey guys, welcome to sandrafirstruleoffilmclubharris! This is the place where I’ll be posting reviews of all the films that catch my attention and float my boat. I won’t lie to you, the emphasis will probably be on (mild!) horror because that’s what I’m into, but you can still expect to find just about any film here, as long as I find it interesting, quirky, original or even downright terrible, because that can be great fun too…! I welcome comments and any interaction and don’t forget, the first rule of film club is NOT that you never talk about film club… No, my friends, the first rule of film club is that you DO talk about film club. You talk about it to friends, to family, to co-workers and anybody at all who loves all films, from the good, the bad, to the downright ugly… Come and visit me whenever you can, I’ll be here!

Sandra Harris is a Dublin-based novelist, poet, film blogger and book-reviewer. She has studied Creative Writing and Film-Making. She has published a number of e-books on the following topics: horror film reviews, multi-genre film reviews, women’s fiction, erotic fiction, erotic horror fiction and erotic poetry. Several new books are currently in the pipeline.
In her capacity as a performance poet, she has given more than 200 performances of her comedy sex-and-relationship poems in different venues around Dublin, including The Irish Writers’ Centre, The International Bar, Toners’ Pub (Ireland’s Most Literary Pub), the Ha’penny Inn, Le Dernier Paradis at the Trinity Inn and The Strokestown Poetry Festival, where she was shortlisted for the 2012 Strokestown International Poetry Prize.
Her articles, short stories and poems have appeared in The Metro-Herald newspaper, Ireland’s Big Issues magazine, The Irish Daily Star, The Irish Daily Sun and The Boyne Berries literary journal.
In August 2014, she won the ONE LOVELY BLOG award for her (lovely!) horror film review blog. She is addicted to buying books and has been known to bring home rain-washed tomes she finds on the street and give them a home. In 2003, she was invited to be a guest on Niall Boylan’s 98FM late-night radio talk show purely on the basis of having a ‘sexy voice.’
She adores the horror genre in all its forms and will swap you anything you like for Hammer Horror or JAWS memorabilia. She would also be a great person to chat to about the differences between the Director’s Cut and the Theatrical Cut of The Wicker Man.
