Horror Films Directed By Women (1900-Present)

A list of horror films directed or co-directed by women. A comprehensive list covering horror films from 1900 to today. This list is sorted in reverse chronological order. You'll find new and upcoming releases at the top of the list. Movies without a release date will be at the bottom of the list.

This list includes feature films, short films, festival releases, TV movies, TV mini-series, and upcoming releases.

You'll also find a few spooky family movies on here. These are basically horror movies for kids so they count in my book.

I am continually updating this list so check back regularly for more movies. If you know of any that are not on this list, comment and let me know.
