#WIHMX Day 18 – Lindsey Kustusch

Today I’m choosing artist Lindsey Kustusch. Okay, so she doesn’t exactly promote herself within the field of horror, but I’m taking the liberty of using her in my WIHM line-up anyway. Her corvid paintings are absolutely stunning and they speak

#WIHMX Day 17 – Xenomorph

Today I’m choosing the queen alien from Aliens and Alien 3: a perfect follow on from yesterday’s choice. I’ve thought long and hard and this is one of the best female ‘monsters’ in horror that I can think of. And

Today I’m choosing the film The Descent. Directed by Neil Marshall (who also gave us Dog Soldiers), this one has an all-female cast of strong and (mostly) likeable characters. It follows a bunch of six women who go caving in

#WIHMX Day 11 – Leigh Janiak

Today I’m choosing film director Leigh Janiak whose directorial debut was Honeymoon (2014) starring Rose Leslie. It’ll be interesting to see what Janiak has to offer in the future after this strong, eerie introduction to her work.

#WIHMX Day 9 – Caitlin Hackett

Today I’m choosing fine artist and illustrator Caitlin Hackett. Her work is both beautiful and disturbing. As a fellow animal lover, I love the idea behind what motivates each of her pieces: that she is extremely sympathetic to nature, seeking
