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!
Another week, another fabulous female screenwriter that did amazing work, then disappeared, without much of a trace (as evidenced by the one grainy picture of her we could find). Hilary Henkin was one of the minds behind the brilliant political satire Wag the Dog, and erotic thriller Romeo is Bleeding, but today, we present you with her magnum opus... Road House. This Patrick Swayze classic about a zen-master hired to bounce at a trashy bar has endured as a shining example of action, romance, blood, and roundhouse-kicks. And it also has the distinction of being one of the few Swayze movies that Linnie can watch without crying to this day.
Remember, kids: Live like a loner. Fight like a professional. And love like there's no tomorrow.
