Perhaps the general (and sometimes even specialized) perception is that women are only successful in creating feminine, adolescent, romantic, and family works. And although an actress/director like Greta Grewick has shown in recent years with "Ladybird" and "Little Women" that she can be a co-star of the great filmmakers, (this year two other actresses (Maggie Glenhall and Rebecca Hall (joined by Hollywood directors) such as Katherine Bigelow, the Oscar-winning director of "Zero Dark Thirty," and Jane Campion, who this year starred in the acclaimed Western drama "The Power of the Dog." We have seen from her that women have also been able to discover and explore genres that are considered to be masculine in general. Now, as Halloween approaches, we have decided in this article to focus on women directors who have made admirable efforts in the horror genre (a genre in which most of the protagonists are women) and have not been seen and encouraged as they deserve.
1. Jennifer's Body
- Product 2009
- Director : Karin Kosama
- Actors : Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfred, Johnny Simmons, Amy Sadaris
- Synopsis: During a fire, Jennifer, a charming high school girl (Megan Fox), sells her soul to the devil in exchange for fame and power, but because she does not meet one of the conditions of this evil deal, instead Popularity kills the lives of high school boys who have not been paid attention to before. While the cannibal Jennifer hunts only high school boys, her positive and simple friend, Nidi (Amanda Seyfred), sniffs and vows to stop the killing.
At the time of its release. Jennifer 's Body The critics of this comedy in the horror genre criticized the wind, and in Ratan Tomitoz, the film received only 45% points. One of the criticisms leveled at the film was that at the time of its release, the film had been marketed to the wrong audience instead of women because of Fox's appearances. But Kosama's ironic film has now become a cult film, especially after the Mito movement. Not to mention that his screenplay was written by Diablo Cody, winner of the Academy Award for Best Unadapted Screenplay for "Juno".
2. American Mary
- Product 2012
- Director : The Saska Sisters
- Actors : Catherine Isabel, Antonio Copo, Tristan Risk
- A medical student named Mary Mason (Katherine Isabel) works for
a medical school in a mysterious nightclub. But things change very
quickly, and Mary makes huge sums of money by performing bizarre,
naturally illegal surgeries on strangers. They also have in their
repertoire, including "Dead Hooker in a Trunk" (2009), which of
course is in the category of "profiteers"; Low-budget films that
try to achieve commercial success by using elements such as love
and violence. But "American Mary," co-written by the Saskatchewan
Canadian sisters, has a complex story in the genre of physical
horror (which creates fear through the destruction of the body) and
is undoubtedly suitable for those with a weak heart. No.
3. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
- Product 2014
- Director : Anna Lily Amirpour
- Actors : Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi , Mojan Marno, Marshall Manesh, Dominic Reins
- Synopsis: Residents of an imaginary dilapidated city in Iran are confronted by a bloodthirsty woman who rides a skateboard in the city and men who confront women They are cruel and disrespectful, they hunt.
"A Girl Goes Home Alone at Night" Anna Lily Amirpour with feminist subtexts (or perhaps obvious references), extraordinary filming and a unique look at a vampire story , Is a spectacular work. Based on this acclaimed black-and-white film, which received a 96 percent rating from Raton Tomitoz, a six-part comic novel series has also been published.
4. Babadook The Babadook
- Product 2014
- Director : Jennifer Kent
- Actors : Assy Davis, Wiseman District, Haley McAlihini, Daniel Henshal
- Synopsis: Amelia is a single widow who has
difficulty raising her son Chamoosh. These problems get worse after
his son panics about the monster character of the children's book
he is reading. At first, Amelia thinks this is one of the boy's
pranks and games to get his attention, but soon he realizes an evil
presence in the house. His experience of directing a feature film
is more than just a ludicrous story at first glance. The
psychological horror film, based on the short story of the same
name by Jennifer Kent in 2005, made a splash at the time of its
release and was able to attract American and European critics.
Raton Tomitoz also scored 98%, but did not make it to the box
office in Australia. The film reflects many concepts, and many see
Babadok as a metaphor for sadness and depression. Of course, the
film is almost perfect, but a bit depressing, however, Netflix
revived it and put it on the Internet after it aired and was
included in the LGBTQ movie category.
- Product 2015
- Director : Karin Kusama
- Actors : Logan Marshall Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michael Heisman, Mike Doyle
- Synopsis: A quiet divorcee named Logan (Logan Marshall Green) at a dinner party at his former home, now his ex-wife, Eden (Tammy Blanchard) and current husband, David (Michael Heisman) They live in it, they are invited. The atmosphere of the party, which is actually a reunion of old friends, gradually gets heavier, and Logan realizes that the hosts have sinister plans for the guests.
Another American trailer by Karin Kosama for those who are crazy There are movies that go from a seemingly quiet party to a night full of horror. The "invitation" is really worth seeing with the dialogues that become more interesting and exciting as the story progresses and the unexpected story twist. Of course, this may not be the ideal option for when you have a party at home. The film received a 89% rating from Raton Tomitoz, and according to Justin Cheng of Variety, it was "Kusama's strongest work in years" and Heather Wixon of the Daily Dead called it one of the "most burning horror films of all time." Recent knows.
