For the last seven years, the month of February has come to hold a very special place in the hearts of female horror fans, thanks to the founding of The Women in Horror Month—or, as well call it around these parts, “lady horror Christmas.”

All across the country (and maybe the globe), ladies who are passionate horror creators and consumers have taken up the call to promote WIHM with fundraisers, blood drives, film festivals, and all manner of spookily themed events—and we at the Zombie Grrlz headquarters salute their passion and drive!

However, that sounds… well… in a word, exhausting. So, if, like us, you’re hyped about female horror solidarity but your idea of the perfect WIHM celebration is done from the comfort of your home (preferably in pajamas), then you’ll get no judgment here, just a list of films to get your viewing party started today.

Here are 10 woman-directed horror films to bump straight to the top of your queue.

Much like the Zombie Grrlz podcast itself, this episode has unexpectedly risen up from its grave! Back in 2011, we recorded a handful of podcasts that for various reasons never made it to light—until now. This week we dig back into the archives for our review of The Poughkeepsie Tapes, and what better way to revive our “lost” episodes than with a “lost” film, eh?

Be sure to stay tuned to the end for some old school outtakes including the obligatory boob talk, a pig run amok, and wardrobe malfunctions of the shorty shorts variety.

Well, well, well. Look who’s back! Yep, after a shamefully long hiatus the Zombie Grrlz have gotten the band back together to ring in the new year with a look back at 2015. Rachel, Jodie, and Sarah talk about the highlights — and a few low lights — of 2015 horror cinema. So, was 2015 a banner year for all things spooky? Or was it 365 days of whomp whomp? Spoiler alert, the crew is divided on that…

After what felt like a billionty weeks, but was actually only two, the gang is back to review episode 4, “Blitzkrieg Button” of Agent Carter.

Episode29

Sure, motherhood can be rewarding and wonderful and all, but there is a darker side to all those maternal feelings. In part one of our new Motherhood Horror series, we tackle the concept of “reluctant mothers” with reviews of Mama and The Lords of Salem.

We also talk feral children, moth eating, bad wigs, merkin budgets, Rob Zombie hatred syndrome, metal chicks and c*nty witches. Rachel reviews the indie flick Resolution, and the board game Pandemic. Ariel grosses Rachel and Jodie out with talk of shower spiders and Jodie gives us her long awaited thoughts on the Evil Dead remake and how badass the latest season of Game of Thrones has been. Spoiler: TOTALLY BAD ASS!

Stay tuned for the outtakes to hear the real reason Matilda loves the zoo, learn the drinking game that will have you tipping your 40oz to Jim Henson, and Rachel… well… you’ll just have to listen.

EPISODE28

It was inevitable! Now is the time in Zombie Grrlz Podcast history where we attempt to take on the Scream franchise. Rachel, Sarah and Matilda attempt this this lofty goal, which we meet to varying degrees of success. Mostly we just laugh at the styles of the ’90s, confess our allegiance to Gale Weathers and lament the very existence of Scream 3.

In this episode we also discuss the Evil Dead remake, the TV miniseries Top of the Lake and the (kinda racist) season two and three of The Walking Dead.

Stay tuned for the outtakes to hear Rachel’s cat sexually assault the linens, Matilda relays the shocking danger of traveling with knitters, Sarah shares the tale of the “inappropriate licker” and Rachel draws a firm line the sexy-time sand.

Happy Women In Horror Month! To celebrate this joyous time of year we are taking a close look at the works of Jen and Sylvia Soska with reviews of Dead Hooker in a Trunk and American Mary.

In this episode we talk forcible castration, voluntary female circumcision, body modification, goat love and magically healing arms—and generally geek out on the Twisted Twins filmography. Seriously, these two are the filmmakers to watch!

Plus, we discuss the totally under-appreciated and unbelievably awesome Dredd 3D,  the visually stunning BBC thriller Utopia, why Explodey Jo dug The Divide (hint she’s a sicko) and Draculas—both upper and lower case “D.”

Stay tuned to the outtakes to hear what we sound like before the coffee kicks in, eight-legged horror stories from around the globe and how Rachel almost broke the internet.
