Default Female Cult Directors

For whatever reason the amount of female directors, compared to male, is quite slim. So, here's a thread dedicated entirely to the world of female-directed horror, cult and exploitation movies!

Besides Viva which is out now on DVD, what are some other films that fall under this? How many can you name? There's quite a handful out there - some which may surprise you.

It's not a film I like very much, but American Psycho was directed by Mary Harron.

Amy Holden Jones the director of Slumber Party Massacre. She only went on to direct another three films, but had a successful career as a screen writer including the Beethoven films, Indecent Proposal and The Relic.

I loved The Relic! Plus the two women from Kindergarten Cop were in it
