Watch a video about the changing role of women in horror movies, both in front of and behind the camera.

I hope that more non-white people, especially women, get mainstream attention...so people stop thinking that it’s just white boys in black T-shirts making horror films.
Inspired by MoMA’s summer-long film series Horror: Messaging the Monstrous, we spoke with Ashlee Blackwell, Kali Simmons, and series co-organizer Caryn Coleman about their formative horror movie moments, moving beyond the slasher film, the “final girl,” and the genre’s long-overdue journey toward inclusion both on screen and behind the camera.
Horror: Messaging the Monstrous, organized by Ron Magliozzi, Curator, and Brittany Shaw, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film, with Caryn Coleman, guest curator, is on view in MoMA’s theaters through September 5, 2022.
