Celebrating This Month: Kevin Costner

On this CinemaJaw we take a look at the dark side as we examine our Top 5 Horror Movies Directed by Women! We are doing this in honor of both our guest and our review.

Joining us is a fellow critic and friend of the show Cati Glidewell. Cati is a lifelong cinephile and has a particular taste for horror! Needless to say she’s the perfect guest for the episode.

In addition, Kevin Costner month continues, we review the directorial debut from Ishana Night Shaymalan, entitled The Watchers, as well as our aforementioned Top 5 Horror Movies Directed By Women. PLUS we dust off the old CinemaWAR segment and have a debate over which is the better Fanning sister, Elle or Dakota!

It’s a jam-packed Jaw as always!
