Horror TV anthologies feature a range of talent behind the camera, and in their early days, they were one place to find women in creative roles. Ida Lupino directed multiple episodes of Thriller as well as one of the more renowned episodes of The Twilight Zone, and Catherine Turney wrote for One Step Beyond. Nowadays, women are producing anthologies; Mary Laws created Monsterland, and Vera Miao created Two Sentence Horror Stories.
Horror is, for the most part, centered on women, and from time to time, women are given the opportunity to tell those stories. The following five episodes are a sample of women’s directorial contributions to horror TV anthologies on the small screen.
