Get involved with and help support independent horror!
For about a year I have donated to a couple of horror movies on Kickstarter and offered my services to local filmmakers in my area. I reviewed a couple of independent horror films at the behest of the directors and used my blog to spread the word about other projects that I feel are important. It is an absolute thrill to help out whenever I can. The results have been amazing. I have made a lot of new friends and had some doors opened to me that weren't there before. How wide those doors are open only time will tell. The experiences have been phenomenal. (See picture above) I can say that there are a lot of creative directors out there trying to do great things in the horror genre that are highly appreciative of any help they can get. They will understand the sacrifices you make (hopefully) to the their cause. You never know what will happen.
If you are sitting around not doing anything I suggest finding out if there are any projects going on in your area and offer a helping hand. Most likely there are. Sure you won't get paid but being on a horror movie set is fun and you will never forget your time doing it even if the movie is a complete embarrassment. Support Kickstarter campaigns and help promote truly great horror films that are works of art and not just another homage to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE or PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. Lets get the good stuff that we want to see get made. We can change the landscape of the horror genre you just have to do something about it.
