The Horror Honeys: A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 8!

A Year of Women in Film ~ Week 8!

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.

Writer/director Kathryn Bigelow on the set of Zero Dark Thirty
Kathryn Bigelow is an icon at The Horror Honeys. She isn't just a director; she directs gritty and violent action films, and gorgeously bloody horror films. She doesn't pull any punches, and she gets down in the trenches with her crew, which is why she was the first woman to ever win a Best Director Oscar for her film The Hurt Locker. Her theatrical follow-up, Zero Dark Thirty, is an equally tense exploration of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden by the US government, and it just cemented Bigelow's status as an absolute badass behind the camera. We will love her forever.

Join us on Friday as we live tweet Zero Dark Thirty
