Eviscerating myths about women and visceral horror, six talented filmmakers have teamed up to create the first female-driven, extreme horror anthology.
In an effort to make the sub genre of extreme horror experience just a little bit more estrogen-fueled, a group of six exciting filmmakers have agreed to become a part of an auspicious undertaking. Producer and filmmaker Jessie Seitz (Obsidian, Beyond Horror) has teamed up with Vile Video Productions to proudly present the first ever, all female-led extreme horror anthology, FUKT.
Seitz, along with Brooklyn Ewing (She Was So Pretty, Sake), Dylan Greenberg (TROMA’S #Shakespeareshitstorm), Parker Bowling (Once Upon A Time…in Hollywood, Swamp Woman Kissing Booth), Sydney Clara Brafman (Decapitato: Consequenze Mortali), and Dixie Gers (Piggy, Crazy Fat Ethel) will all be shooting their segments later this year.
The seed for FUKT was planted while filming Jessie Seitz’s and Marcus Koch’s award-winning documentary, Beyond Horror.
“When interviewing for BEYOND HORROR, we began to notice a common assumption that women in film simply weren’t interested in directing extreme cinema. I knew this to be total bullshit. So after we wrapped, I put the call out for this anthology and was overwhelmed by the response. I am very proud of the group that has come together and very excited to see this important genre further shift into something more inclusive.”
FUKT promises these filmmakers will be “diving into the most depraved corners of the mind in a specific genre that is currently underpopulated with women.”
With an eclectic lineup of female voices focusing on the more taboo and visceral side of cinema, this is a project I’m pleased to see put in motion.
