Bloody Disgusting begin their new ‘Through Her Eyes’ column by taking a deep dive into 2018’s Revenge
[Spoilers] For the first article in her new series, ‘Through Her Eyes,’ Bloody Disgusting’s Mary Beth McAndrews takes an in-depth look at the Coralie Fargeat-directed Revenge, the 2018 movie that attempted to present the rape-revenge trope as one that spoke to female power and address it to a contemporary audience.
Christy Somos, writing for CTV News, presents the findings of a study by the University of Turku, Finland, which mapped brain activity during the watching of horror movies. Some of the results are surprising, but also make a great deal of suspense.
The female members of the Dead Head Reviews team, Elle Turpitt, Laurel Hightower, Becca Futrell, Regi Caldart and Ellen Avigliano, explain how they found their different paths into horror, with some great stories.
