The Horror Honeys: #52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 5!

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 5!

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!

Without Ida Lupino, none of us would be here. In a time when a woman behind the camera was practically unheard of, Lupino is the first female ever to direct a noir, and not just a noir, but a noir tinged with elements of horror and psychological thriller. The Hitch-Hiker is one of the most tense films ever made, and because of Lupino's skill behind the camera, it holds up decades after its release.

All hail our one and true Queen!
