SYNOPSIS:     Cinema is full of neurotic personalities, but few things are more transfixing than a woman losing her mind onscreen. Horror as a genre provides the most welcoming platform for these histrionics: crippling paranoia, desperate loneliness, masochistic death-wishes, dangerous obsessiveness, apocalyptic hysteria. Unlike her male counterpart – ‘the eccentric’ – the female neurotic lives a shamed existence, making these films those rare places where her destructive emotions get to play.- From House of Psychotic Woman.

In 2012, a book debuted that would go on to canonical status and usher in a new way of writing about film. Kier-La Janisse’s HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN was billed as “an autobiographical topography of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films,” and explored hundreds of films through a daringly personal lens. To mark its 10th anniversary, Kier-La Janisse (director of the award-winning documentary WOODLANDS DARK AND DAYS BEWITCHED: A HISTORY OF FOLK HORROR, 2021) and FAB Press have reteamed to produce an expanded edition of HOUSE OF PSYCHOTIC WOMEN.

Kier-La is heading down to Sun-Ray with a few copies of this expanded edition under her arm, she will discuss the book a bit then introduce the 1972 creeper, You'll Like My Mother (which is featured in the new edition) starring Patty Duke and Richard Thomas.

Let's hang out! Tickets are $10 and Kier-La will have the newly expanded book on hand as well
