Greetings, fiends! February is Women in Horror Month, so we’re going to spend the next few weeks celebrating some of my favorite female horror directors, actresses, and films . If you’re not familiar with WiHM, here’s a quick description from the website:
Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.
As a female horror fan, this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart, and I’m very excited about the WiHM festivities I have planned here at We Who Walk Here, Walk Alone. I’ll put new content up every weekday starting tomorrow, but first I’d like to kick things off with a post from the archives celebrating the most memorable mothers in horror history. Women (especially queer women and women of color) are still underrepresented in the genre, but these mothers prove that women can be just as strong, just as complex, and just as creepy as any man.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for more spooky fun times, and make sure you never miss a post by following me here and on Instagram @wewhowalkherewalkalone. Stay creepy, fiends.
