Yes, are you so ready for Halloween?
One of my favorite parts about October are horror films. But, a big problem with these films are their portrayals of women. They kill off the women first and there’s a “Final Girl” that may or may not survive. Here are some Horror films with a more feminist take!
Carrie. The ultimate PMS film. I LOVE this movie.
Alien. Sigourney Weaver stars as the coolest heroine ever in the space set horror. Always a treat to watch.
The Babadook. This film is about a protective mother who faces horror in her own home. It’s considered one of the best scary movies of the recent years, definitely check it out!
Happy Death Day. A Horror slasher film that’s also a black comedy starring a badass college student who has to take control of her narrative.
Rosemary’s Baby. The classic from the 60’s that is a must see about pregnancy and psychological horror.
The Witch. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy who just killed it as Emma in the new adaptation, The Witch propelled her to stardom, set in the 1600’s about a witch hunt and being female.
Scream. It’s a classic for a reason and it features an all star cast of women, Drew Barrymore, Neve Campbell, and Courtney Cox.
