The Horror Honeys: #52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 12!

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 12!

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!

Writer/director Kimberly Peirce was known for her films that challenged serious problems within American society (Boys Don't Cry, Stop-Loss), so when it was announced that she would be taking on a remake of horror classic Carrie, people were a little surprised. But really, there was no one better suited to the project. The 2013 updated version of Stephen King's novel addressed bullying in the Internet age, as well as what place dangerously old-fashioned beliefs have in a modern society. A remake of Carrie may not have been necessary, but it was better than it had any right to be, and that was entirely thanks to Peirce, and her critical eye.

Watch Carrie (2013) this week and tweet us
when you do, using the #52FilmsByWomen!

Carrie is available via Hulu, iTunes, Amazon Prime, YouTube VOD, Vudu, Google Play
