    Guest Post: Everyday Horrors by Kathleen Kaufman

    Horror Directors for WIHM

    It’s February and cold outside! But let’s ignore the snow and snuggle up with books and films to celebrate Women in Horror Month. There are so many amazing voices to seek out: writers, actors, directors, reviewers—OH MY! Thinking about horror films, people tend to gravitate toward the classics: Psycho, Halloween, Scream, Jaws, The Exorcist . . . it tends to be a fairly male-dominated list of directors. But it is not the case that women aren’t creating horror. The ladies are deep in the trenches of the terrifying and they are bringing us some incredibly scary and brilliant films. Here are a few female directors who are making waves in…
