There's this strange, prevalent notion that horror belongs to men ... that it's the guys who like to watch the blood pour and the screams curdle while the women want nothing more than epic romances that rip out their insides in a much more figurative, gut-wrenching manner. It's an attitude that always seemed not only reductive, but downright silly. No matter how many women flock to 'Sex and the City' or lather themselves in cinematic bosom-heaving, there are many others who not only thrive on the thrills of horror, but who helped sculpt the genre into what it is today.
