The Horror Honeys: #52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 10!

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 10!

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!

Director Amy Holden Jones
The Slumber Party Massacre is one of the most important horror films in slasher history, not just because it was directed by Amy Holden Jones, but because it was written by feminist and LGBT pioneer Rita Mae Brown.

Screenwriter Rita Mae Brown
Brown wrote the script for a film called Sleepless Nights, intended to be a parody of the tropes of the slasher genre. But when the producers of the film got their hands on her screenplay, they didn't realize it was a parody at all, resulting in a film that is equal parts hilariously self-aware and adorably clueless. The Slumber Party Massacre was made on a bare-bones budget by a fully-committed cast and crew, and still it stands as one of the best examples of the slasher genre of all time. Regardless of whether or not you view this film as a parody, it's just a damn fine movie.
