When it comes to my favourite Jennifer's in horror....Jennifer Hills, played by Camille Keaton is the absolute most biggest bad ass ever!!!!
One year before I was born, in 1978, Camille was literally stripped bare, both physically and emotionally in Meir Zarchi's I Spit on Your Grave, otherwise known as Day of the Women....one of the most incredible original feminist films ever!
I Spit on Your Grave is a fucked up film....no doubt. The rape is one of the most brutal things ever committed to celluloid. Jennifer Hills however....she became a spokeswoman for women though. I fucking love her!! Just like the Frank Castle, the world needs more Jennifer Hills!!
With the impending release of I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu, I am so excited to see the return of Jennifer Hills with Meir Zarchi at the helm. :)
Oooh, other notable recent credits....The Butterfly Room which was a total Women in Horror lovefest of a film, and NEEDS to be seen. I am genuinely proud to own this film due to the incredible calibre of some of my favourite women in horror.
I am totally thinking the same thing about the remake of one of my most beloved films (and Mulder's!!), Plan 9 from Outer Space. I have yet to see Plan 9, but I seriously hope it is a wee bitty rad! I have noticed quite a few of my women in horror in it, and ladies I totally think get the quirkyness of the original!!!
