The Horror Honeys: #52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 3!

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 3!

This year, The Horror Honeys decided to take a pledge, rather that make a resolution there was zero chance of us keeping. Women in Film has launched the 52 Films by Women project, in which you take a pledge to watch just ONE film directed by a woman every week this year. Easy enough right? And since this is The Horror Honeys, we are going to guide through the project, every week this year, with a featured horror film written or directed by a fierce female!

Take the pledge yourself here, and check out our next pick below!

Kathryn Bigelow is truly one of the greatest action directors of our time, but she's even more amazing when you realize that her first solo directing project is one of the best vampire films ever made. Near Dark is one of the few vampire films made in the last thirty years that doesn't gloss over vampirism. Instead, Near Dark is a dirty, gritty, violent western of a bloodsucker movie; one that never tries to sell you on the sex of being a vampire, but instead on the true violence inherent in the lifestyle. And without Kathryn Bigelow's expert direction, the movie wouldn't be half as good.

Watch Near Dark this week and tweet us
when you do, using the #52FilmsByWomen!

Near Dark is available via Google Play & blu-ray/DVD
