This October, The Loft Cinema unleashes a month-long journey into female-driven terror with Women of Horror!, showcasing a scarifying selection of horror films written and directed by women!
“I love horror movies. A lot of the great horror films are driven by female characters, and I would say that some of the true classics, in fact, are driven by female characters. So for me, horror films and feminism as an idea are fairly complementary.” – Karyn Kusama, director of Jennifer’s Body
From the bloody yuppie satire of Mary Harron’s scary/funny American Psycho, to the eerie pulp pleasures of Ana Lily Amirpour’s Iranian vampire punk western A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, through the wild teen girl terror of Karyn Kusama’s comedy/horror hybrid Jennifer’s Body, and the bloodsucking dysfunctional family fireworks of Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow’s Near Dark, Women of Horror! takes terror to new heights and proves that when it comes to crafting smart, scary, unforgettable horror cinema, you should never send a man to do a woman’s job! Also featuring a woman-directed horror short before each feature!
PLUS: Let the blood flow for a good cause as we host an onsite American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, October 25 from 2:00pm – 7:00pm, before we roll the classic vampire flick, Near Dark! Donate a pint of blood to those in need and get a free slice of Fresco pizza and a free pass to The Loft Cinema! SIGN UP HERE to reserve your spot in the Blood Truck, as space is limited.
