    Director's Statement

    I’m a lifelong genre fan and have a passion for horror. I want to scare people. THE FURIES is full-tilt horror - an entertaining, exciting and emotional experience. A terrifying tale of survival and revenge that the hordes of horror fans will love.The subtext of THE FURIES is that we live in a male-dominated and misogynist society. It is not offering or proposing approval of that society. It is doing the exact opposite, doing what horror is meant to do -digging up what lies underneath the surface and putting in on the slab for all to see. THE FURIES sits squarely in, and embraces the Slasher genre. And that means there are a number of violent deaths. But my intent is to subvert the stereotypical depiction of the female as victim. None of the girlsin the film are portrayed as glamorous victims who are just standing around waiting to be killed. They are active agents who drive the narrative.
