I found this great article on female horror directors of 2014 , the most high profile film The Babadook took my intrigue a while back and I have JUST NOW finally been able to see it. I will write a review of it later for you all 🙂
If you are a fan of horror, or wish to find more female directors, give this article a read and check the films out, as i will be too and i’ve decided not to be swayed by the films rating on IMDB….
Here is an expert:
This year, female filmmakers like Australian newcomer Jennifer Kent and Belgian director Hélène Cattet took us inside the tortured headspaces of their films’ haunted protagonists. Their exceptional horror movies—“The Babadook” and “The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears” (which Cattet co-directed)—examine personal grief, familial trauma and sexual anxiety in new and compelling ways. These films are, in a sense, ghost stories about women who cling to their pasts, but can no longer hide within.
