#VundaHalloweenAthon Day 23: "Feminist Horror"
Welcome to Day 23 of our #VundaHalloweenAthon
The 23rd theme of the month is "Feminist Horror." For many years the horror genre wasn't always particularly kind to women, often portraying them as helpless victims or objectifying them or worse. Today we celebrate films that subvert those norms by looking at horror through a feminist lens, empowering women as creators and performers as well as protagonists (and even antagonists).
It might be an oldie you just never got around to seeing or something from a fresh young filmmaker who you haven't given a chance yet. The sky is the limit and bonus Pumpkin Points if you watch more than one movie a day on theme!
Here are a few recommendations/suggestions from the team, taken from our own watchlists for today...
