THE LAST KNOCK presents: Female Horror Directors

The Last Knock

If you think women hold back the reigns when it comes to horror cinema – man, you need to watch more films! Sure, we talk about the Soska twins and Angela Bettis, as well as Jessica Cameron, Claire Denis, Kathryn Bigelow, Hélène Cattet, Antonia Byrd, Lily Amanpur, Jennifer Lynch, Cindy Sherman, and Jennifer Kent. But we also take a look at upcoming horror superstars Emilie Flory and Jovanka Vuckovick. Find out why horror fans never refer to women as “the fair sex”, and learn why women at the helm will only continue to grow – and bring us great horror.

Sure, we’ll take a bite out of NOSFERATU, but we talk about THE STUDENT OF PRAGUE, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, GOLEM, FAUST, THE MAN WHO LAUGHS, and other great features from early cinema – and why their preservation is vital to horror art.
