Trailers: Feminist Horror on the Big Screen

Aug 17, 2022

It's that time of year—the sidewalks of campus are starting to bustle with the return of students and the Wex is preparing for an exciting season ahead. Before we get into fall programming, we have a pair of screenings to welcome students back August 26 and 27, featuring two films that present strong women characters with a taste for blood.

Maligned on its release in 2009, Karyn Kusama's Jennifer's Body (Friday, August 26) has become a queer cult classic for its clever Diablo Cody script and game performances from costars Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried as, respectively, a demonically possessed cheerleader and her horrified best friend. Ana Lily Amirpour's 2014 film A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (Saturday, August 27) is a gorgeously moody debut feature about a solitary vampire draining the life from an imaginary Iranian town.

Enjoy the trailers above for these delicious thrillers. All are welcome to watch, but we have a special offer for students: Free admission with valid ID. We hope you'll make this the first of many visits to the Wex in the coming weeks.
