When you're a feminist, you see misogyny everywhere; in grocery stores, night clubs, and even in horror flicks. As women, we can only take so much co-ed hook-up gone terribly wrong scenarios, and for perfectly valid reasons. Because, ta-da, we have agency just like men, and we don't want to be relegated to sex objects with nothing more to offer than breasts, pretty faces, and high sex drives for our male-counterparts. Surely, the men writing these horror movie plots have to be bored by now, right? Alas, these movies keep on coming — but thankfully, there are plenty of feminist horror movies to check out that counter those tired cliches.
Just as the term feminist could mean a myriad of different things for different people, I'll be going through my reasons for why I think these films are not only feminist but start conversations about a woman's role in pop culture and how that can and should stretch beyond being nude and chopped up into little pieces by a man who couldn't control his anger. You get what I'm saying? So, without further ado, let's get into it, by looking at some of the best feminist horror movies to ever come out.
