Cinematic horror for most its history has been a story almost exclusively told by men. After miniscule progress from 1980 to 2010, the door has opened and a stream of great women directors has been arriving on the horror scene. Partly due to social change, partly due to networking and contacts, but this movement is mostly due to pure talent and merit. These ladies are very good at what they do.

Eric’s Chattanooga Film Festival Review: Jumbo (2020)
★★★★★ out of ★★★★★
A young woman gets a job at an amusement park, and falls romantically in love with an amusement park ride, in this bizarre and brilliant dark fantasy. Not so much a horror movie, but it is an absolutely brilliant coming of age piece about madness and unconventional affection.
Eric’s Review: Blue My Mind (2017)
★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★
Two great tastes that go great together: Teen coming-of-age movies and body horror. Blue my mind explores a Swiss girl’s transformation into a mermaid while trying to win over the cool kids at her new school in a cycle of self-destructive behavior.
