The Horror Honeys: #52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 42!

#52FilmsByWomen with The Horror Honeys ~ Week 42!


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!

Writer/director/actress Marina de Van
Some movies are made to destroy you. It doesn't matter how tough you think you are; these movies will break you down and leave you an absolute mess. These movies are usually French. One of them is Marina de Van's Dans ma peau, or In My Skin. Written and directed by de Van, she also stars as Esther, a woman who injures her leg, and then becomes obsessed with the wound. It is body horror of the highest degree, and it approaches mental illness, as well as society's obsession with the female body, from an entirely original point of view. So this week, as we live tweet In My Skin, prepare yourself... it's going to be a hell of a journey.

Watch In My Skin this week and tweet us
when you do, using the #52FilmsByWomen!


In My Skin is available via DVD
