Karyn Kusama

Karyn Kusama gained universal praise for sports drama Girlfight, but her transition into horror has been awe-inspiring. Following the releases of Jennifer’s Body and The Invitation, she landed a part in the all female horror anthology XX. Kusama is slated to work on the adaptation of horror novel Breed.

Shimako Satō

In 1992, Japanese director Shimako Satō directed the underrated horror film Tales of a Vampire. Much like Vampire, which was based on Edgar Allan Poe’s work, Satō managed to also bring horror manga Eko Eko Azarak to life. Eko Eko Azarak: Wizard of Darkness and Eko Eko Azarak 2: Birth of the Wizard were both released in her home country.
