When it comes to horror films, the list of famed directors is long. The one problem, however, is that it’s mostly male. This doesn’t mean that the ladies haven’t done their part in this game. We look at female directors that have been strong factors in the horror genre.

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.

Over the years, she’s sat in the director’s chair for Urban Legends: Bloody Mary and The Attic. Recently, she’s been directing episodes of Arrow and The Blacklist.

Mary Harron

Mary Harron broke out on the scene with 2000’s American Psycho. Since American Psycho, she stepped away for a moment to raise her two daughters. In 2011, she directed the horror film The Moth Diaries, which starred Underworld actor Scott Speedman. Her latest film Charlie Says stars Doctor Who actor Matt Smith as killer Charles Manson.

Canadian twins The Soska Sisters have been turning the horror world on its head. Their directorial debut Dead Hooker In A Trunk gained favorable reviews with a 80% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. They followed it up with American Mary and See No Evil 2, which starred WWE superstar Kane. In 2015, the two made the small screen jump as hosts for GSN’s horror game show Hellevator. They’re currently working on Rabid, which is a remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 horror film.
