A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film Watchmen. Includes interviews with cast and crew.

Women have always played an important role in horror films, evolving from playing submissive monster bait to conquering heroine. The new, original Canadian production PRETTY BLOODY takes a look at the increasing number of females who are engaged in the horror business and how they are changing the genre. The 60-minute documentary, premiering Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 10 p.m. ET, is part of SPACE’s ongoing commitment to the Canadian production community.

The horror genre is not just for scream queens anymore. Not only are women portraying some of the most diabolical villains and characters of our times, but they are also creating them as writers and directors. PRETTY BLOODY features interviews with Jovanka Vuckovic, editor of Canada’s Rue Morgue magazine, directors Mary Lambert (Pet Semetary) and Katt Shea (The Rage: Carrie 2), Canadian screenwriter Karen Walton (Ginger Snaps), Canadian fantasy author Tanya Huff (The Blood Books), and scream queens Brinke Stevens (Slumber Party Massacre) and Canadian Debbie Rochon (Bleed). These femme fatales discuss their role in the industry, and their influences.

PRETTY BLOODY also delves into how female characters have evolved through the decades into heroes that young girls aspire to be like, and how the popularity of series like BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and movies like The Grudge have brought a younger, estrogen-filled audience to a once male-dominated genre.

PRETTY BLOODY is produced by Halifax-based Sorcery Films Limited, in association with SPACE. Co-owned by Donna Davies and Kimberlee McTaggart, Sorcery Films Limited specializes in the production of entertaining and compelling documentary and lifestyle shows that question the nature of the human condition. Originally from Prince Edward Island, Davies is an experienced writer and director that has worked on a number of projects with the National Film Board of Canada. McTaggart is one of Atlantic Canada’s most respected editors. Her past credits include LEXX, MADE IN CANADA and THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES.

SPACE’s ongoing support of Canadian Independent productions has been a major contributor to the success of series such as RABBIT FALL, CHARLIE JADE, GRAND STAR and TRIPPING THE RIFT. Documentaries include FAMOUS MONSTERS, GIRLY GHOSTHUNTERS, BIGFOOT’S REFLECTION, and SHADOW HUNTER.
