February is the ninth annual Women in Horror Month! WiHM celebrates ladies in the genre both on screen, behind the camera, and in any other form of art and media.
Here at Goddesses & Monsters, I’m going to use WiHM as an opportunity to watch and write about horror films directed by women. I chose ten films, both feature-length and short films, that I have never seen before:
Blood Hunters (2017, dir. Tricia Lee)
The Invitation (2015, dir. Karyn Kusama)
The Love Witch (2016, dir. Anna Biller)
Night of the Witch (2017, dir. Zena S. Dixon)
Paralysis (2015, dir. R. Shanea Williams)
Trouble Every Day (2001, dir. Claire Denis)
The Velvet Vampire (1970, dir. Stephanie Rothman)
Venefica (2016, dir. Maria Wilson)
Vore (2017, dir. Lauren Erwin)
XX (2017, dir. Jovanka Vuckovic, Annie Clark, Roxanne Benjamin & Karyn Kusama)
