Women Direct Horror

Just for Jason Blum. Feature-length horror (and horror-adjacent) films directed by women, including films co-directed by at least one woman. Includes transwoman directors (sorry TERFs). Organized by U.S. release date, if distributed in U.S.; otherwise by U.S. festival premiere date or production nation's non-festival release date. Always expanding, mostly backwards through film history. Mistakes are possible, even likely, so your help in updating mistakes (director misgendered, incorrect release date, etc.) is appreciated.
