Vengeance is Hers

Vengeance is Hers

On the city streets. From beyond the grave. Female fury is a power unlike any other. Arresting and decimating, women have violently taken the screen in everything from Horror to New Wave to Exploitation to Comedy… and we've loved every minute of it. Even when the films aren’t wholly empowered, these cinematic sorceresses pick up the slack. In this collection, Shudder celebrates Lady Vengeance in all its forms.
