The Horror Honeys: A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 4!

A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 4!

Another year, another project at The Horror Honeys! In 2016, we took part in the #52FilmsByWomen project, putting our own spin on it by focusing on horror films and thrillers written or directed by ladies. This year, we've decided to open it up to a bigger array of genres, and are including films by iconic female writers, directors, and even producers! The list for 2017 was compiled by all the Horror Honeys, and includes some classics, as well as some lesser known favorites. So join us on our live tweeting journey. It's going to be a hell of a year.

Drew Barrymore on the set of Whip It
Drew Barrymore is a certified badass. From fantastic actor to smart producer (Donnie Darko, Santa Clarita Diet), Barrymore has been working in front of and behind the camera for years. Back in 2009, she took her turn as director with the coming of age roller derby story Whip It, starring Ellen Page. For her first full-length feature, Barrymore nailed the camaraderie and sisterhood of the sport and how it can empower women to pursue any dream they put their minds to. Here’s to hoping she chooses to direct more of these awesome stories in the future.

Join us on Friday as we watch Whip It 
for our next #AYearofWomeninFilm live tweet!

Whip It is available for rent on Amazon Video or on DVD. Damn you, Fox!
