Female Voices In Modern Horror Cinema

Despite the debt owed by the horror genre to the works of female novelists like Mary Shelley and the Brontes, female authorial voices were rare in horror cinema throughout the twentieth century.  However, the 2010s saw a proliferation of fascinating horror debuts by a stream of female directors, and in the main feature here, recorded in October 2019, Kirsty and Dan focus on four key examples: Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook (2014), Ana Lily Amirpour’s A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014), Anna Biller’s The Love Witch (2016) and Alice Lowe’s Prevenge (2016).

There’s also some up-to-date content in which Stella joins Kirsty and Dan to follow up on last episode’s discussion about remakes.

Relevant links and availability:

All four films in the main discussion are available for rental streaming from Amazon, YouTube and other services.
