Top 7 Must-Watch Horror Movies by Woman Directors
For some odd reason horror movie writing and directing has mostly been associated with men. However, many women have also taken leading roles as writers, producers and directors of hit horror films. In fact, some movie distribution companies are now run by women. And for a good reason too, women have directed some of the most iconic as well as influential horror movies out there. Yes, that includes the hit American Psycho. Let’s look at the seven main must-watch horror movies directed by women.
The American Psycho
The horror movie was released in 2000, co-written and directed by Mary Harron. The movie embraces a darkly satirical adaption of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel from 1991. Harron does a great job with the dark humor throughout the movie and also flips the male gaze in the film. Also Harron ensures that the American Psycho does not objectify women unlike other horror movies throughout history. This is actually one of the reasons she wanted to work on this project.

Kathryn Bigelow co-wrote and directed this movie which was released in 1987. You can consider Bigelow as one of the pioneers for horror movies directed by women. The movie revolves around an exciting and romantic story of a family of specifically nomadic American vampires. Almost like an 80’s ‘Twilight’ Kathryn directs this movie in a unique way without ever mentioning the word ‘vampire’. The movie features amazing actors such as Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen and Jenette Goldstein who also appeared in James Cameron’s ‘Alien’.
View this post on Instagram Near Dark (1987) While shooting in the desert, Lance Henriksen relieved the boredom between takes by hopping in his car and taking short drives through the desert, still in costume and often staying in character. According to Henriksen and Bill Paxton, the two were stopped by a policeman who became so unnerved questioning Jesse about his speeding that the officer became visibly uncomfortable, stepping back and placing his hand on his firearm. The obviously flustered officer decided to send them on their way rather than write them a ticket. Unusual for a vampire movie, the word “vampire” is never mentioned. . . . #NearDark #Classic #Horror #Vampires #Vampire #horrorfilm #Horrorfan #Horrorart #HorrorMovies #HorrirMovie #Horrorfanatic #80s #Flick #Horrorlover #Halloweenparty #NoSleep #Terror #Desert #scary #goodmovie #Liked #Spooky #Bests #VAMP #Brutal #Twisted #Story #frightfest #horrorgram #InstaHorror A post shared by Hitcher HorrorSeeker (@horrorseeker) on Sep 18, 2018 at 3:27am PDT
This is one of the recent horror movies written and directed by a woman, Julia Ducournau, who does a stunning job in this cannibal based drama. Raw may be one of the more graphic horror movies on this list, so viewer beware. It even caused a man to faint at a festival viewing. Depending on your stomach this might be a reason to see it or not see it. Julia’s use of bloody violence and shocking imagery is what made it so popular.

The Babadook was released in 2014, written and directed by Jennifer Kent. Although it’s a must-watch movie, it is not for the faint of heart. The Australian writer and director embraces various mechanics of a horror movie to narrate a soul-shaking story. It features main characters such as Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman. Essie Davis plays a young widow who is struggling to raise Noah, her six year old son, who is hyperactive. The movie has virtually no onscreen gore of bloodshed as the director is more interested in preying and exploring upon the most primal fears of the human mind. But still, it’s scary.

Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare
For fans of Nightmare on Elm Street, this fan favorite is iconic and directed by a woman. Rachel Talalay, the director, worked on several Elm Street movies but has a breakout role as director in this one. She is one of the most notorious women in the franchise and had been working behind the scenes for years before directing this masterpiece.

Ida Lupino was a popular actress in the early 1950’s. After several successful movies, she made her way into the directing scene. Released in 1953, The Hitch-Hiker is one of the original modern horror movies. It’s about two men who pick up an escaped psychotic convict who then tells them he is going to end their lives before the trip is over.

After working for several years as a music director for big names like Madonna, Mary Lambert became a household name with her 1989 cult classic ‘Pet Sematary’. This was one of the many horror movies based on the works of Stephen King and her feature movie debut.

While many think that women don’t have much of a presence in the horror movie genre, this list shows that the statement itself could not be more wrong. While women have directed less horror movies than men, the movies directed by women are some of the best horror movies you can see. There are many good reasons to see these movies above, but the fact that women directed them all is another great reason.

Oscars 2022: Full List of Nominations and Predictions for Best Movie, Actress, Actor and Director
We’re in the midst of awards season ’s frenzy. Now it’s less speculating about what big 2021 movies will get trophy love and more of starting to see what has actually gotten the most nominations. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just unveiled their nominations for the 94th Oscars, which will take place on March 27, 2022.
A few titles have emerged with the most nods. Jane Campion’s western The Power of the Dog has 12 nominations; Denis Villeneuve’s Dune amassed 10 — not all of them in the technical categories, as can happen with science-fiction fare at the Oscars. Close behind are West Side Story and Belfast with seven nominations each.
We could still see some last-minute twists during the ceremony; last year Minari and Nomadland already looked like the movies to beat at the Oscars after they premiered at Sundance and TIFF, respectively, but Promising Young Woman didn’t become a favorite contender for the Best Director and Best Original Screenplay categories until late into the season. This year is the controversial — panned by a lot of critics but not us , loved by the public — Don’t Look Up that has four nominations and could end up snagging Best Picture.
Here are the titles, filmmakers and performers leading the 2022 Oscars and the full list of nominations for the 2022 Academy Awards.
Oscars 2022: Best Movie Predictions
Kenneth Branagh’s black and white tale about a nine-year-old boy growing up in Belfast in the 1960s started award season as the title to beat at the Oscars. Belfast won the TIFF 2021 People’s Choice Award — and we’ve already told you how the Canadian festival has become a solid Oscar predictor . Nomadland won the same award there in 2020.
But as the season progressed, other titles climbed to the position of main contenders for best pic. Among them are Campion’s The Power of the Dog — with Benedict Cumberbatch playing a fierce rancher who torments his brother’s (Jesse Plemons) wife (Kirsten Dunst) — and Reinaldo Marcus Green’s King Richard — with Will Smith playing Richard Williams, the father of Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Serena Williams (Demi Singleton). The movie tells the story of the teenage tennis champions as their dad and mom (Aunjanue Ellis) help them follow a meticulous plan to success. There’s also Villeneuve’s big-screen adaptation of the sci-fi classic Dune — it was very popular both among the critics and audiences and represents the rarer big movie spectacle — and Adam McKay’s political satire Don’t Look Up .
The Best Picture category, which this year includes 10 nominees, has also made room for Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story , Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza and Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley . No surprise there, since the academy tends to reward films by established filmmakers and past winners. But I miss titles like Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut and adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s The Lost Daughter or Rebecca Hall’s adaptation of Nella Larsen’s Passing .
Fortunately, there was room for one of my favorite films of 2021: CODA . Written and directed by Siân Heder, this coming-of-age story explores the options of a teenager (Emilia Jones) torn between her sense of duty to her family — she’s the CODA (child of deaf adults) of the family since both her parents and her brother are deaf — and her dream of making a career in music.
The last title among the Best Picture nominees and one that could give more than one surprise, it has four of the important nominations — Best Picture, Best International Feature, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Directing — is the Japanese Drive My Car by director Ryusuke Hamaguchi adapting a short story by Haruki Murakami.
Oscars 2022: Best Director Predictions
Kenneth Branagh also had his name locked in to get a Best Director nomination. Belfast is the most personal movie the Irish filmmaker has helmed in years. The film is based on his own childhood growing up in Belfast.
Jane Campion was the other safe name on this list of possible director contenders. The filmmaker had been working on the TV series Top of the Lake most recently; this is her first film since Bright Star in 2009. She’s the only woman to have been nominated this year — only seven women have ever received directing Oscar nominations — and the first one to have been nominated twice in the category. She was also nominated for The Piano (1993).
The Japanese Ryusuke Hamaguchi was also nominated for Drive My Car . The movie started making headlines at the end of 2021 when it got recognition from several critics groups — it was chosen best film of the year by the New York Film Critics Circle. It’s difficult to predict Hamaguchi pulling a victory in several categories à la Parasite a few years ago, but Drive My Car surely will take home the Best International Feature trophy.
Once again, the remaining two nominations are for established filmmakers Steven Spielberg ( West Side Story ) and Paul Thomas Anderson ( Licorice Pizza ).
Oscars 2022: Best Actress Predictions
When it comes to Best Actress performances, I told you months ago Jessica Chastain had her name written all over a nomination thanks to her work in the biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye . She’s still one of the front-runners, as is Kristen Stewart for her role as Princess Diana in the suffocating Spencer . And since the film is so different tonally from The Crown , there are no chances of getting her performance confused with the one from Emmy-nominated Emma Corrin, who played Diana in seasons three and four of the Netflix show.
Speaking of The Crown , Emmy- and Oscar-winning actress and the Queen herself Olivia Colman has grabbed yet another nomination for her role in The Lost Daughter . While Maggie Gyllenhaal’s adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel is far from perfect, Colman shows once again she can transform herself into practically any character. Here she plays a college professor and writer confronted with her past while on vacation in Greece.
The other actresses on this list are Penélope Cruz for her role as an independent photographer and zealous mother in Pedro Almodóvar’s soapy Parallel Mothers ; Nicole Kidman has also made it to the selected list of five nominees for her portrayal of the sitcom royal Lucille Ball in Being the Ricardos .
Oscars 2022: Best Actor Predictions
Let’s talk about actors. There were three names that pretty much had a nomination secured: Will Smit h in King Richard , Denzel Washington in The Tragedy of Macbeth and Benedict Cumberbatch in The Power of the Dog . But Smith is probably the one who’s done more of the heavy-lifting when it comes to aggressively campaigning for a statuette. He’s the one to beat.
The remaining two slots went to Andrew Garfield for his portrayal of playwright Jonathan Larson ( Rent ) in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tick, tick…Boom! and the Spaniard Javier Bardem , who happens to be married to the also-nominated Cruz, for his portrayal as the Cuban-accented Desi Arnaz in Being the Ricardos .
