Welcome to SHRIEK's October series, the Women Directors of Horror Festival!

This event ticketing page is for the events at Naked City Brewery. For our October 2nd event for The Slumber Party Massacre at Scarecrow Video, you can purchase tickets by clicking here.

Seattle horror film fanatics Evan J. Peterson and Heather Marie Bartels will lead you through a sampling of some of the most intriguing horror films created by women. Click below for trailers:

Oct. 16: The Invitation, directed by Karyn Kusama (2015)

Oct. 23: Office Killer, written & directed by Cindy Sherman (1997)

Oct. 30: American Psycho, adapted & directed by Mary Harron (2000)

These four films have been selected to show the range of style in the horror films that women create, in addition to previous female-directed horror films we've watched at SHRIEK such as The Babadook, The Countess, and Lyle. Join Evan and Heather through their tour of some of horror's leading women—behind the camera.

SHRIEK is a community class merging film with education and offering an accessible forum outside of academia. The goal is to offer low-cost opportunities to learn about film and women's studies and to inspire more diverse filmmakers to get involved as creators in the genre.
