more deadly: the directors cut danishka esterhazy

On this episode of More Deadly: The Director’s Cut, Rachel and Ariel were so excited to speak with Danishka Esterhazy, director of Slumber Party Massacre (2021). We talk about how she approached making the feminist classic her own, playing up the female gaze, and confronting the historical sexism of the slasher genre with plenty of humor and gore.
