New Book ‘Creepy Bitches’ Features Essays on Horror from Women in Horror

Edited by Rebekah McKendry and Bloody Disgusting contributor Alyse Wax, the brand new book Creepy Bitches: Essays on Horror from Women in Horror is now available!

From BearManor Media, the 204-page book is available in Paperback & Hardcover.

“For far too long, horror has been considered a male genre, made by men, marketed to men, and enjoyed by men. But in the last decade, we have seen an emergence of women as horror filmmakers, academics, and fans, all making sure their voices were heard! Editors Alyse Wax and Rebekah McKendry, PhD have gathered some of the greatest minds in horror film theory—all women—to discuss their love of the genre.”

“The scope of Creepy Bitches covers all areas of the horror genre, film industry, and fandom – from the Cronenbergian experience of giving birth to how The X-Files plays in the #MeToo moment; from growing up at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion to growing up in a video store. The book explores gender roles in The Creature From the Black Lagoon trilogy and Mexican horror cinema, as well as the bisexual energy of I Know What You Did Last Summer. It covers the therapeutic benefits of watching horror and how to love home invasion movies again after experiencing real-life trauma.”

“But the book’s overarching purpose is to celebrate new voices and increase our understanding of women in the horror realm, celebrating that horror does not only scare us, but helps us understand the world around us, providing a lens through which to view and explore our own selves.”

You can pick up your copy over on Amazon today.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
