“Please, please, someone give this (wo)man a gob of money to make a feature!!” ~ SpookyDan,

“Devi Snively is probably one of the most recognizable horror directors in that her films have a very distinct look and feel; somwhere between early silent films and rock videos.~Heidi Martinuzzi, Film Threat

“I know it’s corny to describe a filmmaker as a ‘talent worth keeping an eye on,’ but that phrase is tailor made for Ms. Snively.” ~Peter Guitierrez, Film-Forward

The artist is the medium between his fantasies and the rest of the world.
