It's October, which of course means there are no women who make horror films. So here's a feature by another director who doesn't exist:
Already a working actress/producer/writer, Marion Kerr added feature film director to her resume this year with her debut film GOLDEN EARRINGS. The intimate thriller made its world premier at my alma mater DANCES WITH FILM FESTIVAL (don't they have good taste?) and played last weekend at my friend and sometimes producing partner Jed Hammel's brand new festival FILMSHIFT in Boston.
GOLDEN EARRINGS also played Big Bear Lake International Festival, and won Best Horror Feature at IndieFest!
Where it DIDN'T play was at Shriekfest, Screamfest, Fantasticfest, Toronto After Dark, and all the other genre festivals that continue to assert there aren't great horror movies by female writers/directors.
But their loss is our gain. You can watch GOLDEN EARRINGS right now on my distributor's site INDIEFLIX.com for $4.95. Or you can buy the DVD through their site for $14.99...it comes with lots of goodies!
And my good friend and indie film supporter Nic Baisley at FILM SNOBBERY has a great video interview with Marion here.
