It's a new month! Frankly, I don't know where January went; it's been so cold lately I half-expected we'd all stay frozen back there forever, but we're finally kicking February into gear and doing some pretty fun things at SYFY FANGRRLS to celebrate the month. Stay tuned for our latest theme, which will revolve around all things sexy in genre.
- Why Babadook director Jennifer Kent hates period pieces, and why she made one. (Vox)
- The enlightening doc Horror Noire lays out black history through black horror films. (The Verge)
- Some more great romance recs for the month of January over at EW!
- Catherine Hardwicke says women-directed films remain disadvantaged from the start. (Indiewire)
