Becca Kozak’s GIRLS WITH GUTS explores post-modern feminism through interviews with primarily Vancouver area Canadian horror movie directors. In Carol Clover’s seminal
academic paper on feminism in slasher movies (which ended up in her book "Men, Women and Chainsaws"), she suggested what was original viewed as a misogynistic format was actually a much more subversive feminist arena with final girls emasculating the killer male force in the narratives. Now we get to see how far that path goes deep into the dark genre woods, with a coven of filmmakers that are conjuring up some very sick and terrific s**t, as it’s
all murder, guts, and fun with this punk-style documentary.
