Daily Dead's celebration of Women in Horror Month continues with a special guest and an insightful conversation about one of the most groundbreaking female filmmakers in horror history!
Continuing our Women in Horror Month celebration, Heather Wixson is joined by special guest Meagan Navarro (Daily Dead contributor and horror journalist on other outlets, including Bloody Disgusting and Fangoria) on this episode of Corpse Club! Listen as Heather and Meagan reflect on the groundbreaking, influential, and altogether inspiring career of writer/producer/director Debra Hill, whose determination and talent broke barriers in filmmaking for women of future generations.
From her co-writing collaborations with John Carpenter (including Halloween, The Fog, and Halloween II) to her directing work in television to her prolific producing career that includes The Dead Zone (1983), Clue, and World Trade Center, Heather and Meagan celebrate the legacy of Debra Hill, one of the great heroes of horror cinema, whose persistent spirit lives on to inspire female filmmakers of the present and future. So, whether you love Hill's work or you have yet to watch her classic contributions to cinema, sit back, relax, and enjoy this very special and motivational Women in Horror Month episode of Corpse Club!
