Director Karyn Kusama talks women and horror at SCAD Savannah Film Fest

SCAD Savannah Film Festival

News 3 caught up with Karyn Kusama on the red carpet at the 2018 SCAD Savannah Film Festival. She is the director of scary movies like “Jennifer’s Body, “The Only Living Son and “The Invitation.” 

We asked her why she thought horror films created by women stand out.

“I think horror begins a sensitivity to the vulnerability of the audience and I think women, for better and for worse, have to walk around with a little more of an understanding that there is something to sort of look over your shoulder about. I think that leads to some kind of sensitivity in some of the filmmaking to being attuned to how audiences might not feel safe while they’re watching your movie.

Kusama was in town promoting her new film “Destroyer” starring Nicole Kidman.
