‘Lady Problems,’ With Jennifer’s Body Director Karyn Kusama

We talk about the state of modern horror, and, relatedly, why being a woman is totally fucking terrifying

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler co-host alongside one of our favorite horror directors, Karyn Kusama. Kusama has directed Jennifer's Body, Girlfight, and last year's The Invitation; her new short film, part of a female horror anthology called XX, is out next week. We talk to Karyn about her Rosemary's Baby–esque short, the strange and singular trajectory of her career, the state of modern horror, and why being a woman is totally fucking terrifying.
