Does lighting or time of day affect our ability to connect with a character—and empathize with their terror? And how does gender play into it? This episode of Sunlit Horror shines a light on femme trauma in Abel Ferrara’s Ms. 45 (1981), Gore Verbinski’s The Ring (2002), Ari Aster’s Midsommar (2019), and Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge (2017)!
