A Damned Take on Women in Horror Films – Day 22 Brian Moreland

The Road to Nowhere...

A Damned Take on Women in Horror Films
The Guy’s Point of View!

In honor of Women in Horror Month 2017, I asked six male horror writers for their top-five favorite horror films staring strong leading ladies and why they loved them so much. So, without further ado…

Day 22 – Brian Moreland:

HUSH
Leading Lady: Kate Siegel

brianmoreland_hush_mp

Synopsis:

A deaf writer who retreated into the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window.

Brian’s opinion:

“This movie follows a similar set up to I Spit on Your Grave, in that Maddie (Kate Siegel) is a lone writer innocently working on her book at a remote cabin in the woods. The big differences in Hush are that Maddie is deaf and she’s being stalked by one sadistic killer with a crossbow. It’s another cat-and-mouse game, as the cocky killer…

The Guy’s MY Point of View!

Nina’s B&E Bonus Pick – o3!

Wondering what a B&E bonus pick is? Since I handed my blog over to the guys for their opinions on strong leading ladies for WiHM this year, I’m doing a little breaking and entering into their realm and posting a few picks of my own! Here is number three.

May

Leading Lady: Angela Bettis

a_may_mp

Synopsis:
A lonely young woman traumatized by a difficult childhood and her increasingly desperate attempts to connect with the people around her is sent into a murderous tailspin.

Nina’s opinion:
“Angela Bettis, who plays May Dove Canady in ‘May’, delivers a truly twisted performance in this often overlooked treat from 2002. Her character is sweet, strange, maladjusted, and truly psychotic. This is one of those films that, while it has a good story line, isn’t really about the story line; it’s more about feeling…

Day 21 – Mark Steinwachs:

Quarantine
Leading Lady: Jennifer Carpenter

marksteinwachs_quarantine_mp

Synopsis:

A television reporter and her cameraman are trapped inside a building quarantined by the CDC, after the outbreak of a mysterious virus which turns humans into bloodthirsty killers.

Mark’s opinion:

“Of the movies I’ve picked, this is the one that has the best chance of making you jump out of your seat. A reporter (played by Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman are on assignment to spend a night following firefighters in Los Angeles. They get called to an incident in an apartment building. While inside, the CDC arrives and barricades them in, killing…

HUNTING PREY by Nina D’Arcangela

Sotet Angyal

Hunting Prey

Beautiful creature of destruction; you are the embodiment of majesty and grandeur darting through the air; humming past in the blink of an eye, stunning your prey into a shock of paralytic fear; engaged always in aerial combat with the currents that fight your forward progress; rising, dropping, jerking, zipping.

Always seeking…

What is it you seek on those elegant gossamer wings? Perhaps the next meal that awaits you… What else would a voracious thing such as yourself desire? You, with your crushing mandibles and gnashing teeth, so willing to consume all that cross your path and thereafter, your gullet. A beast of miniscule proportion whose lust to sate itself knows no bounds – respects no boundaries.

The patter of rain does not deter you from the hunt – your need for nourishment is all consuming; it’s all your disjointed body knows. The repeated pumping of your clasping…

My Watcher by Nina D’Arcangela @WiHMonth @Sotet_Angyal #WiHM8

MY WATCHER by Nina D’Arcangela

Sotet Angyal

My Watcher

My watcher gazes upon me, great despair and longing seeping through her gently fluttering lashes. She lives a life of torment, a life filled with a depth of pain and depravity that rivals my own. Closer she wishes to draw, trying – always trying, but the measure of her success is a cruel and harsh one that denies, not grants, the wants of those like us. Unable to do more, she watches.

She watches as I sink ever further into the squalor that is my self-imposed exile, my place of preciously preserved pains, the darkest recesses of my mind where even I cannot find respite from my own deranged ramblings. Gasping for a breath that will never come, hope a thing lost to a moment that can never be regained, I will forever dwell in this chasm of nowhere. Capable of infusing life into me once more, yet…

Day 20 – Lee A. Forman:

Drag Me to Hell
Leading Lady: Alison Lohman

leeforman_dragmetohell_mp

Synopsis:

A loan officer who evicts an old woman from her home finds herself the recipient of a supernatural curse. Desperate, she turns to a seer to try and save her soul, while evil forces work to push her to a breaking point.

Lee’s opinion:

“I’ve always admired the integrity of the lead character in Drag Me to Hell (Alison Lohman). It’s shown in a clever way: through her job as a bank loan officer, and through her actions regarding the Gypsy curse placed upon her. Her career aspirations motivate…

Day 19 – Dan Dillard:

Alien
Leading Lady: Sigourney Weaver

dandillard_alien_mp

Synopsis:

After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as distress call, their landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform. Continuing their journey back to Earth with the attacked crew having recovered and the critter deceased, they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun.

Dan’s opinion:

“In space, no one can hear you scream. It was the tagline and movie no one was ready for. Evil creatures from other worlds had, up to the release of Alien in 1979, been rubber-suited, low…
