This year, The Horror Honeys decided to take a pledge, rather than 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 you 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!
Of all the female directors currently working in Hollywood, Lexi Alexander has become one of the most vocal in regards to the wage and hiring disparities for women and minorities in the industry. She works actively to increase the female presence in all genres of film, but her first major step was she became the first woman to ever direct a film based on a Big Two comic book. That movie was Punisher: War Zone, and it was leaps and bounds better than the first, mainstream studio Punisher adaptation. While Lexi has been busy putting her stamp on television, her contribution to the world of cinema lives on, in one of the most awesome, brutal, memorable comic films ever made.
