Gender in Horror
Theorists
Julia Kristeva
• Horror films use the female body as a form of
an abject. The bodily fluid, blood, gets related
to the period and birthing only the female
body can perform.
• This Constitutes motherhood as something
society is taught to be disgusted with feeding
into this patriarchal world.
Shelly Stamp Lindsey
• Carrie is not about liberation from sexual
repression, but about the failure of repression to
contain the monstrous feminine
• Carrie is purposely portrayed in this manner
because she demonstrates what happens when
women gain power and are no longer repressed.
• Carrie ultimately tells its audience that they must
live as a patriarchal world and if they do not then
this is what will come of it.
Aviva Briefel
• Menstruation is the start of monstrosity. Once
a girl has reached her puberty she is seen to
be monstrous.
• Horror films feed into the female monsters
identity through menstruation. She concludes
that having your period makes you weaker.
• The female monster is unable to control their
emotions when pain occurs whereas male
monsters are unable to feel pain.
