15 Influential Female Horror Directors—And Their Best Horror Movies

"Female horror directors have spent decades defining their space in the male-dominated horror genre. Indeed, as our list proves, women filmmakers have created some of the boldest and most terrifying movies around, from groundbreaking noir nightmares to modern-day meditations on body horror, body politics, capitalism run amok, and more. Alas, many of these films are criminally under-seen. Thankfully, the horror genre is evolving. And with platforms like Etheria Film Night amplifying the voices of women directors, editors, producers, and screenwriters, horror films directed by women have experienced a surge in popularity and visibility within the past ten years."
