Remembering Horror Hostess Veronique Von Venom

A look back at the "Horror Hostess Hottie" who loved unicorns

After she was allegedly fired from her low-rated cable access show in 2012, horror hostess Veronique Von Venom began her own self-produced web show. Shot in a garage somewhere in the Los Angeles area, the short-lived show originally ran on the now-defunct platform from late 2012 to early 2013. However, to date, all 17 episodes are still available at Magick Lantern Industries’ Youtube channel.

Although Veronique hasn’t been heard from in a good 10 years, she isn’t a candidate for the “Whatever Happened to..?” file. VVV was the alter ego of actress Mindy Robinson, who at the time was just a year or so into what has become a very prolific career acting in indie films, mostly in the horror genre. So, even though the Miss Von Venom character was seen no more after 2013, it was hardly a setback for Mindy. She went on to appear in such gems as Lizzie Borden’s Revenge (2013), After School Massacre (2014),  A Blood Story (2015), Bloody Island (2016), Antidote (2018), and Brides of Satan (2020), and Demon Pit (2022), just to name a few from her very long list of credits.

These days, Mindy’s still active as an actress, television personality, and political commentator. She’s promoted various conspiracy theories (considering herself a “conspiracy realist”) and unsuccessfully ran on the Libertarian ticket for a seat on the Nevada State Assembly to represent District 35 in the 2020 general election. She also a proclaimed pro-constitutionalist and has spoken at national events as a free speech/constitutionalist activist. You can see more of her at her official blog, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and  she’s very active on Twitter.
