Karyn Kusama

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's 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.

Don't forget! Call us up with your Lady Problems at 205-677-5239  — yes, that is 205-677-LADY, and if you think we’re not going to remind people of that every single week, then you must not know Lady Problems.
