"From damsels in distress to bad-ass: the changing personae of women throughout slasher films is about to be changed by the Soskas." ~ Corrinne Brownhill, Fangirltastic
The above quote fills us with indescribable pride and happiness. I'm sure it'll make my mom feel the same way. Heck, even my dad, for as we all know, feminists come in all forms, all ages, and both genders. We're far from your stereotypical feminists. One theme we keep prevalent in our work is the presence of strong female characters. Many people have discussed DEAD HOOKER IN A TRUNK's Badass as the future of females in horror. From the helpless victims of the past to the virgin heroines of the 70's, our present and most likely our future has seen a new breed of women rise up in the horror industry, the femme fatale. And it's about fucking time.

With strong women like Mary Harron, Kathryn Bigelow, Katharine Hepburn and Sigourney Weaver paving the way and characters like Ripley (Alien), Alice (Resident Evil), Ginger (Ginger Snaps), Regan (The Exorcist), and "She" played by Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist) leading us into the future, I'm excited to see what lies ahead.
And in closing, one of my favorite lines ever uttered...
"You make it so easy, don't you? Always waiting for some Batman to save you. I am Catwoman, hear me roar."
