Female-driven action movies are so hot right now. Just this year, we’ve already gotten Scarlett Johanssen’s Ghost in the Shell, and we’re going to get Atomic Blonde, Wonder Woman, and Alien: Covenant pretty soon. Also riding this action lady wave is Taken director Pierre Morel, who has announced that his next film, which was up for bidding ahead of Cannes, will feature a mother who goes after the people who took her child away from her.

In a particularly strong year for horror movies, one of the lesser-known titles of 2015 has to be Bone Tomahawk, the debut film by writer-director S. Craig Zahler. It wasn’t just the horror fans that appreciated its slow pacing and bursts of graphic violence; I attended a signature screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and sat next to a pair of elderly women who laughed uproariously at the funny parts and powered through the gore. Certainly, it was a film that made S. Craig Zahler a name to remember.
