Horror Crush: Kim Director


It has been a very long time (way too fucking long, if you were to ask me) since we inducted a lady into this site's Horror Crush section. And, with Valentine's Day coming up and it being Women in Horror Month, it feels more appropriate than ever to do so. And, with that being said, this time around the chosen beauty is the stunning Kim Director!   

Kim Director was born on November 13, 1974 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She made her acting debut in Spike Lee's He Got Game (1998). But, I wouldn't know of her till I saw the movie that made her one of my personal favorite horror crushes (and thus paved the way for her induction): Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 (2000).


Taking a meta approach, this often, and unjustly, at that, maligned sequel, has the events of the first movie, be just that a movie. Or is it? As our characters go off to prove if it was indeed real or just reel. Kim plays one of said characters, Kim a gorgeous, goth babe that is hotter than hell. Director is quite good in her role, as is the rest of the cast.

If you wanna go much deeper into my thoughts on this flick, please read my review of it. But, long story short, it maybe flawed but is still a good movie. One that I truly believe has aged much better than its predecessor. Also, starring in the movie is the gorgeous Erica (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake) Leershen. My questions is would you like to see her inducted into Horror Crushes? Let me know in the comments section below if so!

And, regardless of your thoughts on the movie itself (though, I firmly feel those who dislike it should give a second chance) I think we can all agree that Director looks breathtaking in it. This is especially true for those of who love goth girls! 


Director, though, wouldn't return to horror movies, themselves, till 2016 for M. Knight Shaymalan's Splitin an uncredited role as a character named Hannah. I am guessing this was a small role, and I honestly didn't notice her in it. Did any of you guys notice her role?

She would, eventually, start doing conventions (you know while those actually were still occurring) beginning with Chiller Theatre April 2018. I met her there, and she was so genuinely sweet and, of course, breathtakingly beautiful. She followed that up with NJ Horror Con March 2019, where she actually remembered my friend and myself! I didn't get a pic with her at that event, but one of my friends did (note: as such there are no pics of her my in report concerning NJ Horror Con.).  

Then in 2020, she appeared on an episode of NOS4A2 as a character named Sasha in an episode called "Good Father". I have never watched this show, but if you have let me know in the comments, especially your thoughts on her in said episode.

And, she has an upcoming in Glen Danzig's
Death Rider in the House of the Vampires.
This movie also stars Devon Sawa, Julian Sands, Danny Trejo, and the Soska Sisters! It looks like it is sexy and gory fun, and Director looks incredible in the trailer! And, quite frankly it is said trailer that made it very clear that sealed the deal on this induction. You can watch said trailer below. 



Kim Director is an absolute stunning beauty (those eyes!!), naturally sexy, and a great actress (check out her amazing performance in HBO's The Deuce for proof). And, while she hadn't done that much horror, she is, in recent years, beginning to rack up the appearances in the genre. Plus, she really likes being at horror conventions. But, even outside of that, her role in Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 pretty much certifies that she deserves being her. Long, long overdue, it is with great honor that I declare Kim Director an official inductee into this site's Horror Crushes
