About Bat 7153 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. I guess they count as a double entry, but my favourite female director(s) are the Soska Sisters. I love their creativity and they are always looking to push the boundaries in everything they do. There portfolio looks amazing so far & I feel they will have so more to offer, especially once they get into bigger films such as the remake of Rabid.

  2. Roxanne Benjamin because I love her work on the V/H/S trilogy as well as Southbound, all of these are really twisted movies and I’m glad that she was involved in XX, I like that she thinks out of the box and likes to take risks because they always pay off in creating these twisted visions.

  3. Sophie Coppola and her comedy-drama The Bling Ring, based on a true story but brilliantly brought to life with the nearly all female cast.

  4. The late Nora Ephron and Julie & Julia. Meryl Streep is great in that movie and it’s two stories are lovely to follow.

  5. The Soska sisters are my favourite directors. The film Rabid is such a wonderful film so tense

  6. Best female director – Jennifer Kent, ‘The Babadook’ being quite a memorable film, with brilliant screenplay and direction.

  7. I would say Ida Lupino for the edge of the seat Hitch-Hiker and outrage. She also acted and produced if that was not enough!

  8. I like Sofia Coppola’s work, in particular the brooding masterpiece Lost In Translation which reaffirmed Bill Murray’s considerable skills as an actor.

  9. Kathryn Bigelow would be the director and either Point Break or Near Dark for the film. As to why, i can’t define exactly why but her films appeal to me and i find hem very enjoyable

  10. Kathryn Bigelow for overall body of work. It may be a one-off but Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation was great. According to IMDB she’s working in TV at the moment.

  11. Hard to look past Kathryn Bigelow, Near Dark is one of my favourite vampire movies. I do love Antonia Birds Ravenous as well, but her filmography is far less impressive.

  12. I would say Lesli Linka Glatter is my favourite female director as she easily goes across different genre; from Spy to supernatural to horror. My best film is Shawshank Redemption, …….because it’s just too good. The audience knew what was happening, but with limited scope, the acting was superb as well.

  13. Barbra Streisand, always been a big fan of hers, shes done some incredible work in all the films she has been involved with as an actress and director

  14. Jane Campion – The Piano
    Fantastic Oscar / Palme d’or winning film.
    Campion has always made non mainstream films with and edge

  15. Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska

    See no Evil 2

    Ok one of those kinda cheesy but you still like it films but two identical twins both directing? That is kinda really cool.

  16. Kathryn Bigelow – really want to say Near Dark but Point Break is a stonewall guilty pleasure classic!

  17. Without a doubt or moment of hesitation, it’s Kathryn Bigelow. I love her not only because she makes amazing films, but she is the sole force behind breaking the gender barriers behind the cameras of the film industry. She has triumphed in the man’s world of action thrillers. She’s badass.

  18. Nora Ephron – Julie & Julia – great film and so well made. Great actresses and actors and storyline.

  19. Has to be Kathryn Bigelow – any one of her movies is great, but especially Near Dark! She’s never let herself get stereotyped to any one style of movie.

  20. Andrea Arnold. Fish Tank and American Honey are two of the best films of this century. Poetic, gorgeous and quixotic filmmaking.

  21. Sofia Coppola for her mega Lost In Translation. It’s a film I can happily watch again and again with both Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. I think most of us worry about reaching a phase in life where we feel like our enthusiasm and potential is fading and it provides a sense of perspective.
