5 excellent horror films you may not have known were directed by women

5 June 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Horror isn't known for being a woman-friendly genre. From the flailing histrionics of Fay Wray in "King Kong" to the slasher sub-genre and its attendant bevy of brainless, scantily-clad female victims, there's a perception -- in some ways warranted -- that the horror film caters in misogyny. And yet that's also a frustratingly reductive viewpoint. It seems obvious but I'll say it anyway: boiling down the horror genre to "Friday the 13th Part VII" is like boiling down the comedy genre to Adam Sandler's "Grown-Ups." There is so much more to horror than "a girl running up the stairs when she should be going out the front door." So what of the women working behind the scenes?

Most would know Heyman for being the producer who plucked Harry Potter from relative obscurity and brought it to the big screen, in turning making him one of the most important movie producers of the last 20 years. But did you know that were it not for Ravenous, it's possible the Harry Potter movies, as we know them at least, would have never happened? We spoke to Heyman recently ahead of today's home video release of Paddington (read the first part of that interview here), and that's when a shared love for Ravenous revealed the chain of...

Five Film Composers that Hollywood Needs Back

12 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood has no shortage of talented composers crafting mostly serviceable tunes for the next young adult literary adaptation or prestige awards tearjerker. But for every auteur like Hans Zimmer and John Williams, you have musical yes men pounding out ominous notes in anticipation of the next horror movie jump scare or making ratatat noise to underscore a superhero chase scene. The film world screams for diverse sounds, but is often left wanting when scores become interchangeable to feed the Hollywood machine. The current film decade is no different from any other in terms of talent, mediocrity, and ingenuity, but could always use a boost from professionals who bring specificity to the table. These five forgotten or diminished artists, each among them with varied yet singular skills, are screaming to be brought back into the Hollywood fold to create their signature sounds.
