THE HYPE: The announcement of this film got us all giddy with excitement. Riding on the wave of success enjoyed by modern anthology films such as ABC's of Death and VHS, Todd Brown and Jovanka Vuckovic masterminded a new project that brings together the talents of female genre directors for a unique perspective on horror. The first of its kind, this feature will have segments helmed by Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Jennifer Lynch (Chained) Karyn Kusama (Jennifers Body) and Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird). Acclaimed stop motion animator Sofia Carillo will be creating the wrap around story and inter-titles.
Whilst there is no pre-requisite that says female horror fans need films directed by women, or even that they should prefer them over those directed by men, female talent behind the camera is still a vastly untapped minority and its been great to see this slowly beginning to change over recent years. Argue amongst yourselves over how and why the gender of a films director might change its perspective or storytelling slant, but Scream Sirens will always champion those women that break the mould in this patriarchal industry
